A one-of-a-kind drawing is a wonderful way to celebrate a treasured pet. This shop is named for my beloved dog Bella “Goose” Michetti (as seen the listing photos…she’s the reddish brown lab mix), and I know a little bit about how deep the love can run for the creatures with whom we share our homes and lives. I typically draw dogs but I am open to any subject, whether furry, feathered, scaled or otherwise. The photos shown in this listing are examples of drawings I’ve done over the last year.

When I draw pet portraits, I try to bring out the personality of the animal rather than just recreate a likeness. I’ll work from your favorite photographs and your words to create your drawing…I want to know about the quirks, the stories, the cuteness, and all the details that make your pet so very special to you.

I use professional quality colored pencils on 100% cotton paper. The drawing will be delivered with a white, acid-free mat and backer board and packaged with care to ensure that it is not damaged during shipping. Custom pet portraits ship for free to the continental U.S.!

I offer several different paper sizes and price points:

Small, 5x7: $250
Medium, 8x10: $450
Large, 11x14: $650

Portraits typically include the head and shoulders of the subject, but if you would like your drawing to include your pet’s full body please let me know. If you would like to include more than one subject in your piece, please contact me to discuss your project and pricing. As a guideline, I will typically add 25% per extra subject.

Please allow 3-5 weeks for your drawing to be completed. I will send you a sketch for your approval 3-5 business days after you purchase this listing. The final drawing will commence with your approval. If you need your drawing sooner, please contact me for availability; I may be able to accommodate a rush order depending on my current workload.

Your photo selections are very important to the outcome of your pet’s portrait. Here are some tips for selecting photographs:

-Choose high resolution images with crisp, in-focus detail that showcases the texture and color of your pet’s fur, feathers, etc.
-Avoid extreme lighting conditions like direct sunlight or poorly lit indoor spaces; an overcast daylight sky provides beautiful diffuse light for this kind of photo!
-The eyes are “windows to the soul,” as the saying goes…choose a photo that highlights your pet’s beautiful eyes
-Choose a primary photo that captures the pose or facial expression you wish to use for the drawing
Support your primary photo with others that provide more information about color, texture and personality

The card is beautiful and the seller is so kind. I had an issue with shipping (my fault) and she was so sweet in fixing it for me. Thank you!
