This is an open edition print of my original color pencil drawing.

You can't help but smile right back at Nelson, his smile is so genuine and contagious! I'm excited to offer for the first time, a print of one of my favorite happy faces. A perfect gift for the bulldog lover!

The top image is the print, second image is a detail from the original drawing.

Printed on archival matte paper, 230 gsm. Printed on a professional grade Cannon printer using archival Canon pigment inks.

Prints are created on-demand. Please allow 1-2 days to process and print, and an additional 5-7 for shipping.

    Leah's custom pet artwork was absolutely amazing. I am blown away by the quality of her work and I would HIGHLY recommend her if you're looking to capture your beloved furbaby.

    Leah was incredibly responsive and very, very easy to work with. My portrait arrived on time and lovingly packaged.

    Again, I cannot say enough positive about my customer pet portrait experience.

Every painting and drawing is completely customizable. Don't let the listed sizes limit your creativity or desire! Want a long and narrow portrait? That's ok! Want an oval or hexagon? Cool! Just shoot me a note and let me know what size you were thinking of and I'll be happy to give you a quote!
If you have more than one pet, or you'd like to be in the portrait with your pet, I'd be more than happy to include multiple subjects within the same portrait. However, to maintain quality and the level of details I strive for, multiple subjects work best on medium and larger sized portraits. Please check out the Multiple Subjects section of my shop. Sometimes it's best to have a conversation about your options prior to making your selection and purchase. Don't hesitate to write me a note, attaching your photos so I can give my best advice.
My personal preference is to keep things as simple as possible to allow your pet to shine! I prefer to have a solid color as the background - you can choose your favorite color or leave it up to me to pick one that will compliment your pet.

Sometimes a background is vital to expressing the full personality of your pet or to create a certain mood. I'd be happy to recreate the surroundings of your pet to your liking with the accompaniment of reference photos. Please check out the Portraits with Backgrounds section of my shop.
The quality of the photographs you supply me greatly affect the outcome and quality of your finished portrait. It is very important to send me photographs that exhibit great detail and focus. I always suggest sending a few photographs so I may get an understanding of your pet's personality and character and so I am able to see the different colors and texture of their fur. All these subtleties will make the portrait unique to your pet.
Sometimes it can be hard to surprise someone with a custom portrait - getting the right photo, sneaking shots of their pet to send me. Giving a gift certificate is the way to go! Not only will your friend be able to choose their favorite photo of their pet, but they will also have the unique and exciting experience of commissioning a custom portrait.

Gift certificates come in any denomination, or you can purchase them by size of the portrait. I offer certificates printed in a notecard with envelope, or digital for gifting last minute.
Shipping artwork in general is not cheap. Once artwork reaches a certain size and weight (which extra large paintings do), it must be shipped by UPS Freight, as it can no longer go by ground. Therefore shipping *starts* at $700. If shipping ends up costing more than that, I will need to send you an extra bill for the remaining balance. I hate that it has be that way, but I have not been able to do it for anything less (Fedex was even more costly).
