This listing is for a custom watercolour illustration, for a flat price, depending on the size you choose.

This is an *unframed* painting (for ease of shipping) using Qor watercolour on paper. The subject matter is open ended! This includes a small amount of paper tole detailing, just enough to make it "pop". Or not! If you're not into that. You call the shots.

Feel free to message me ahead of time to discuss details. I would greatly appreciate some clear photos of your pet, especially if it has unique markings. Tell me about their interests and personality quirks. Exotic animals ok!

The photos above are examples of what I've been doing. My turnaround time should be fairly quick, after the details have been ironed out. The *actual* painting time itself shouldn't be longer than a week, just to assure you that it's not a months-long endeavour! Although I am open-minded and capable, we'll both have a much better chance of success if my art style is already something you like.

So now, why am I doing this?

I love my pets, but I also feel a little guilty when I see them looking longingly out the window and chittering at birds. Our pets aren't going to be around forever, so sometimes I just like to paint them living their best life. I got to give Milo a tall vine to climb (he loves to be up in high spots). Jester spends his day watching through a window, so I painted him the biggest most beautiful window I could imagine. I gave Lando (a hedgehog) a cute teacup house in a woodland. The more imaginative and fantastic, the better! When our animal friends ultimately leave us, we can continue to "visit" them in the fun spaces we imagined for them.

If any of my samples appeal to you specifically, I'm happy to make it again!

Where would your pet like to go today? Send me a message, and I can help.

Where do I start with the gorgeous piece?! I contacted Melissa to commission a piece for a friend's wedding this summer, and she was an absolute delight to work with. I sent her the inspiration photo, and then oodles of pictures of this fluffy butt, so she'd know the right colours. We talked about the local birds, and she was SO quick with mock ups for me! I had a few special requests, such as painting on the mat, and she took it beyond what I was hoping for. What I wasn't expecting was that the dog and the two birds flying across the main piece would be raised. The added layers makes this piece so much more amazing. Her communication was fantastic, and she absolutely exceeded my hopes for this. I don't know how I will wait another couple of months to gift this to my friends! Thank you, so so so very much!

I could not be happier with my painting! It is absolutely gorgeous, and the 3D elements look so cool in person. Amazingly quick work as well - I definitely recommend this seller!

I am over the moon at how well done this painting is. I requested a portrait of my girlfriend and her dog who has passed away. It is a beautiful piece, the background is incredible, I really cannot recommend this shop enough.

I am beyond pleased with the painting I commissioned for my sister's birthday. Melissa was wonderful to work with and had amazing suggestions for colour and composition. I will definitely be coming back for future gifts!
