To ensure the best quality painting, please follow these rules when picking your reference photograph:
1. Use a photograph with even lighting. A well-lit photograph that doesn't have too many dark areas is best, but also avoid too many bright white areas.
2. Use a high resolution photograph whenever possible. Please make sure your photograph is sharp and detailed!

1. For every piece of artwork I create, I take plenty of progress pictures and a time lapse video of the art being created – and I LOVE to share these on my social media pages. I typically wait until the customer has received their painting before posting these. If you would prefer that I not post anything on social media, please let me know in the NOTES TO SELLER.
2. All of the portraits and illustrations are for personal use only. For commercial purpose please contact me at cherietaylorstudio [!at]

Cherie made this as a wedding gift for my friends. The painting was beautiful and looked just like their home. The order was shipped and arrived quickly in perfect condition. My friends were truly overjoyed to receive this and can’t wait to hang it! Thank you, Cherie!

I am BLOWN away by my pet portrait made by Cherie. She is clearly talented—you can see from the photo. But more importantly, she is a professional! Cherie made sure to check-in with me on the progress of the portrait while she was making it. She sent me “rough sketches” and even added an extra touch to it requested by me. She was very accommodating and shipping was fast! I will definitely be purchasing from Cherie again. :)

Cherie was very communicative through the process of producing a sketch of our two dogs! She made updates and worked with us to make it perfect! We love it so much and can’t thank her enough!

We love our pet portraits! Cherie Taylor is one of those unique artists who only comes around once in a lifetime. She not only captures the spirit and look of your beloved pets, she captures their essence. So glad we got introduced to her custom dog portraits via an associate at While we were grieving over our beloved Havanese who crossed over the Rainbow Bridge, Cherie painted their portraits in a timely manner, with attention to detail and offered words of comfort. We definitely plan to order another Cherie Taylor custom painting after we get our new Havanese puppy in 2021.
