Here to create with love.

Welcome to my shop! I am a graduate from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. Painting and drawing is my release. Pet portraits are my expertise!

I grew up all over Bucks County, PA and lived on a farm for a short period of time. I can name the abundance of animals I’ve known, but we would be here for a while. As a kid I found myself riding horses in the woods, drawing & painting all of time, training our family dog agility for my graduation project, and then moving to the big city of Philadelphia with my cat to attend college. I studied oil painting at the Pennsylvania Academy of the fine arts and graduated in 2011. After graduation I lost my beloved cat of 12 years, he was more like a dog actually, the best of both worlds. I painted him into many of my original paintings and called him my muse. When he crossed the rainbow bridge it shook my world, so many of my peers didn’t understand what I was going through at the time. It is so hard to explain the love and loss of a pet. They teach us so much, so much some never learn.

After showing a few paintings of my cat in a number of galleries I received inquiries for custom pet portraits. This began somewhat of a snowball effect which brought me here today. I don’t have much time to make original pieces these days, and that’s just fine, I would only end up with piles of portraits of my dog, Miley.

Welcome to my shop! Welcome all animal lovers!

All of the artwork in my shop is hand painted, hand drawn, and signed by me. I offer original artwork, yet lately have been specializing in custom work. My pet portraits are the most popular! If you’re looking for a pet portrait you came to the right place. I work with most mediums, and on most surfaces. I offer ceramic mugs, Christmas ornaments, cremation urns, pencil drawings and paintings. I am open to painting on anything that is glass, porcelain, or ceramic. If you’d like a specific piece painted we can have it shipped to me.

If you would like a commissioned piece please contact me with your ideas, and photos through the ‘Contact the Shop Owner’ link on the front page of my shop, or in overview. You may also email me at lexannegrant [!at] gmail.com . Please only send photos through gmail, and all other conversation/questions through one thread on Etsy. This will keep our conversation organized, and I don’t want to miss a thing!

For custom work and personalizations: please add your personalization requests directly in the notes on your order.

Photo Requests for Custom Pet Portraits:
Please send me a private conversation with your best and favorite photo(s) of your pet.
A clear, high resolution photo will make for a beautiful drawing or painting. If you do not have one please send what you have, and I will see if I can improve it. A photo that was taken outside in natural daylight, out of direct sunlight, will show your pet’s true colors and details, and a photo taken at your pet’s eye level will show me their true essence.

Please note: Combining multiple photos tends to create a loss of likeness due to different lighting and camera angles in each photo. Please be sure to choose one photo for me to paint from to ensure that I capture the overall likeness of your pet. I can also help you choose one if you have multiple favorites. Just send them my way.

I will send a listing through our private conversation after we discuss the artwork. Once payment is made I will begin your custom piece.

Returns and exchange details
I do not offer refunds, or accept returns due to personalization. I do send photos of my urns, mugs, paintings and drawings on paper/canvas when they’re finished. I do not send photos of my ornaments as they make the most sense in one’s hand and can not be captured in their entirety in 2D form due to the round surface. I am open to your honest opinions, If you’re unhappy with your artwork when you receive it please send me a private conversation with your thoughts. I strive to capture the likeness and essence of each and every pet, and I know how much our pets mean to us, I would be heartbroken if you were unhappy with your artwork.

All shipments come with tracking and insurance. Due to unpredictable postal service delays delivery dates are not guaranteed. If the item is marked lost or is damaged during transit please contact me within 24 hours so we can submit a claim. I am open 24/7 and respond in less than 24 hours.

My custom urns, mugs, tiles, and paintings and drawings on paper/canvas will be viewed by the buyer once they are finished and before shipment. I can make most requested changes at that time, please note that this may delay processing times that may be extended over new orders with deadlines. If I do not hear a response regarding the final piece I will ship on the ship-by date attached to the order. The buyer will be responsible for return shipping charges if changes are needed. All returned shipments must be sent with insurance and tracking. If the item is lost or damaged and we can not file a claim, it will not be refunded or replaced.

Paintings on round surfaces such as mugs, urns, and ornaments will make the most sense in one’s hand, viewed in person (3D). A still photo of one angle will not capture the painting in its entirety. I do not send photos of my ornaments since they’re small and circular. I can send photos of multiple angles upon request.

Feel free to contact me anytime during the process through our original thread on Etsy, this will keep our conversation organized and in one place. As per Etsy policy all order details and questions must go through the Etsy platform.

I take pride in capturing the essence and personality of your pet. It would be an honor to do so! Please keep in mind that these are pieces of art, representational paintings. Please visit my full shop to view my style.

Additional policies and FAQs
Be sure to keep your oil paintings and/or drawings out of direct sunlight to avoid discoloration, also avoid drastic temperature changes, and humidity to prevent cracking/tearing.

My ceramic mugs and shot glasses are painted with non-toxic paint. I do not paint the inside of the mugs, or shot glasses. They are not microwave safe, gently hand washing in warm water is always recommended for fine art collectibles.

My ornaments and urns are painted with lasting enamel, and are sealed with a satin finish. I can add hand written text to the ornament at no extra charge, such as their name and the year. Please send the text along with your photo. I add small green designs around the text on the reverse side of the ornaments and small red dots throughout the ornament. Please specify if you'd like a different design or no design.

My graphite, watercolor, and colored pencil drawings are sprayed with a fixative to prevent smudging, and fading. Work on paper will be shipped flat, please be sure to keep the paper flat when framing to prevent creases and indents.

I can add text to my ceramic/porcelain, and glass pieces (usually on the reverse side) I recommend adding text to the final matting and framework for work on paper, canvas, and panel.

I may use your photos to promote my final products on social media, and future listings. If this is something that you feel uncomfortable with please let me know.

Thank you for stopping through 💕

Frequently asked questions
How do I send my photos to you for custom portraits?

You can send me a private conversation through the ‘Contact the shop owner’ or the "Request a Custom Order'
link in the listing ‘Overview’ and on the main front page of my shop titled Alexis Anne Grant Art. Once you open a private conversation you can upload 3 photos at a time through the camera icon located in the message block.

What is the most common size for a portrait drawing?

I have noticed that my 11x14 pencil drawings are the most popular when one purchases a portrait for themselves, an 8x10 makes for a lovely gift that is not too small, or too large. A 5x7 would fit perfectly framed and standing on a desktop or mantle. My sizes are measured in inches, these sizes are very common. You can find pre-cut mats, or frames for these sizes at your local craft store. (Custom sizes are available)

How fragile are your Christmas Ornaments?

My Christmas ornaments are round thick heavy weight ceramic. They are 2.5in in diameter fitting perfectly in your hand, due to their size they are not too heavy for a tree. They are very durable, yet can break if they fall from a far distance on a hard surface. I have yet to have one break, if your ornament breaks I will gladly remake it for you.

Do you offer more than one size, or color for your Christmas Ornaments?

I currently have one ornament style in stock. I would gladly shop around for your desired style, and we can have one shipped to me. Please keep in mind that the larger the ornament, the more fragile it becomes due to weight. Larger ornaments tend to be made up of thin brittle ceramic. I can paint on ceramic, porcelain, or glass.

Can I use your hand painted mugs?

Yes! My mugs are baked and sealed to last forever. They come ready to use. I do recommend gently hand washing fine art collectibles in warm water. They are not microwave safe.

Do you offer different mug styles?

Yes! I can paint on anything that is glass, porcelain, or ceramic. If you have a specific piece in mind we can have it shipped directly to me.
