Portraits really are the perfect gift or keepsake! It captures a special pet, memory, or moment in time forever. I work from your photos, though they need to be clear and expressive. You can always contact me for tips on taking good photos. We start by you emailing me photos of your pet. Then, I paint your portrait. After your OK again, it's back to Etsy for payment.
I love animals...grew up in a household with cats, dogs, fish, birds, horses and various other oddities. So I naturally love to paint them too! In fact, animals have always been my favorite subjects.
I have a painterly style, my pet portraits will never look like photos, but then that is what photos are for!! My favorite medium is watercolor, for its luminosity and expressionism. Watercolor is known as a difficult medium, as one must learn to let the paint do what it wants to some extent, but I love the exciting things that can happen almost outside of your control! I enjoy trying to capture the subjects personality, and focus a lot on the eyes, which I feel is the key to a portrait.
Simply contact me with your questions and ideas and we'll get started! Other sizes are available!
