Gift wrapping by CherieTaylorStudio
You can ship directly to the recipient! Wrapped in adorable pet-themed wrapping paper with your message hand-written in a paw print card.
NOTE: Thanks for your interest in my listing! I am just coming back from maternity leave and am still caring for a newborn (and toddler) so please forgive me if I am a little slow to respond to messages. If you purchase a painting, please be aware of the estimated shipping times on my listings and if you have an earlier deadline, please reach out to me so I can make sure I can fit that into my schedule. Thanks! Custom cat portraits are a great gift idea for your favorite cat lover. They can also be a wonderful keepsake as a memorial of your beloved four-legged friend or a personalized portrait of your current kitty. Capture your beloved pet with this custom pet portrait painting, which also makes a wonderful gift idea for any pet owner! Painted by hand using acrylics from any photo of your pet. Arrives on a beautiful 100% cotton "The Edge" All Media Cotton Canvas - a deluxe stretched canvas known for its tuck-n-roll style construction (which allows for a beautiful edge display even without a frame), hand stretched by skilled Craftsman using the best archival materials. All 6x6 and 5x7 paintings will have an 11/16" deep edge while any larger size paintings will have a 1.5" deep edge. PROCESS:▶︎ Once you place your order, please send me a message with the photograph you would like your portrait based off of. Please see tips below for picking a photograph that will work best. Please feel free to send several photographs so I can get to know your pet's personality and all of the little colors and spots that make him/her unique. You can also email me at cherietaylorstudio [!at] gmail.com. If you have any specific background color requests, please let me know in the "note to seller" section upon checkout or with your message.▶︎Time to finish might vary based on the amount of portraits I have in queue but I try to finish all portraits within 2-5 weeks of receipt of your reference photos. Please let me know before placing your order if you have a tighter deadline and I will see if I can accommodate it. I will send you a picture for your review before shipping and am willing to make one round of changes to make sure the portrait is perfect! (Additional changes may incur additional charges and full refunds are available for unshipped paintings if you are unhappy with the finished result.)▶︎Any kind of animal is welcome (horse, cat, dog, fish, tortoise, rabbit etc.) Please see my other listings for samples of other animals. If you would like to do more than one pet on a single canvas, let's chat! - but please note that if you have multiple pets on a smaller canvas, they may be less detailed.PHOTOGRAPHS: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. This allows me to see all of the details in their fur.2. Use a high resolution photograph whenever possible. Please make sure your photograph is sharp and detailed!3. Take the photo at eye level with your pet. Photos at odd angles or looking down often look unflattering and unnatural to the eye.4. Do not photograph your pet with the FLASH turned on. It creates odd colors and a red-eye glowing effect.**Please do not send copyrighted photos without the permission of the photographer.PLEASE NOTE:1. For every piece of artwork I create, I sometimes take progress pictures and and I LOVE to share these and the final paintings 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] gmail.com.QUESTIONS?I’m happy to discuss any special requests and look at your photos before you make your purchase, just use the “Ask a Question” button next to the price above and I’ll get right back to you!

I love to experiment with new materials and mediums. My go-to paint right now is Liquitex Acrylics. For canvas I love to use The EDGE All Media Cotton Canvas. The Edge is known for its tuck-n-roll style construction, providing clean edges for painting to display frameless or framed.
All paintings are sealed with two layers of Krylon UV Archival Varnish spray. UV Archival Varnish provides the ultimate in protection against harmful UV rays. It provides invisible protection and preserves the colors and intensity of your acrylic painting.
If you purchase a custom pet portrait you are allowed to make prints and reproductions for your own personal (non-commercial) use. Feel free to reach out if you would like help or suggestions on how to do this. For all other works sold on my shop you may not make prints or reproductions without my permission. I maintain ownership rights of reproduction and use of my artwork’s image. Use of such image, either in part or in its entirety in the aforementioned capacities is not allowed without written consent from me.
Please reach out to me immediately if your artwork is damaged in shipping. I would be more than happy to fix the artwork, where possible, or try to replace the damaged work. I would also be happy to refund you the price of the damaged work if you provide documentation of the damage.
I make every effort to represent the artwork digitally as close to the original as possible, but please allow for slight color variance due to the differences in computer monitors.
Unfortunately at this time I am not offering shipping outside the United States as an option on Etsy. If you are outside the US and would like to purchase a piece of my artwork, please contact me and I’d be happy to work something out.
I can send your gift directly to the gift recipient. At checkout please enter their address, mark that it is a 'gift', and leave a gift message. Gift wrapping is also available for an additional charge.
Just send me a message so we can discuss options. Only available to businesses located in the United States.

Cherie was phenomenal to work with. I wanted a portrait for a friend who just lost her cat. I didn’t have one good shot to work from so Cherie was able to work with several to create one perfect image. She was quick and very willing to make minor adjustments for me that weren’t seen in the photos but more things I knew about my friend’s cat. I will definitely buy from her again. It looks even better in person. My friend will be thrilled! Thank you!!
From my friend, “This is my boy all over!! Cherie Taylor really captured his soul in this painting. I am crying (joyful tears).“

Ordered a portrait of my girlfriends cat for her birthday and she liked it so much she cried. Cannot recommend enough.

I ordered a picture of my parents’ kitten, and they were IN LOVE with this painting! It shows all of Gracie’s details. The packaging was really nice, and Cherie was great with checking in and making sure the painting was exactly what I wanted. I definitely recommend her for a pet portrait!

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 Chewy.com. 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.
