Announcement   Welcome! Here at Clarity Art & Design I specialize in painted pet portraits as well as graphite drawings (dog portraits, cat portraits, etc.!)
Adding a pet portrait to your collection is a great way to celebrate your pet or memorialize one that has passed on.
For the paintings, I use an oil alkyd paint (that's a fast drying oil) on stretched canvas and I work from the photographs you send me.
I can do any background you want!
Turnaround time on custom paintings ranges from 2-6 weeks depending on size.
All items on here are "Samples." The sizes are all different with corresponding prices so please purchase the item that is size you want. Please contact me with any questions!

This is the second order we have gotten from her. She did a fantastic job. She really captures my sweet girls personality. Thank you again for a fantastic drawing.

This is an adorable watercolor painting! The pitbull looks just like one that my brother had. Sadly, he passed away last year. When I saw this, I couldn't resist buying it. Everyone in our family who has seen this, just loves it! Great quality, and it was packaged well, and shipped on time.

Super perfect drawing memorializing my "fur-phew"! Stephanie was quick to respond to messages and communicate progress of the drawing. My only "issue" was that I didn't realize how difficult it would be to find a 6x6 frame! Michael's didn't carry any (I didn't feel like paying extra for a custom matte either) and the one I found on Amazon.com said it would take 1-3 months to come in. I was on a time constraint so I couldn't go with that option. I ended up choosing a frame with a 4.5" opening but it was too small so I just put the matte in into the frame LOL you can see it in the picture. Hope it doesn't look too weird. Anyway, I would definitely ask Stephanie again to draw for me but next time I would not choose 4x4 (could you do 5x5?) simply for framing purposes. Thank you again, Stephanie!!

About

Custom Pet Portraits by an Animal Lover

My name is Stephanie and I just love painting, specifically animals.

It really truly makes me happy to be able to give someone a portrait of their pet that really looks and FEELS like them.

I graduated college about hmm, a while ago, majoring in Art and have been painting on the side of my day job for many many years. Recently I have made the change to full time artist, which is very exciting!!

Here's how my custom process works:

1. Select the size of the custom painting you would like and purchase.
2. Conversation me with your pictures (as clear as possible) and let me know what your ideas and goals are for your painting. If you're not sure about pictures feel free to show me what you have and I can help you figure out what will make a good painting.
3. I start painting! I post updates on my Facebook pages so you can watch as we go along if you like.
4. Approval by you! I would never ever call a painting done unless you agree it is complete.
5. Shipment by priority mail!

The whole process generally takes about a month. Sometimes it will only take a couple weeks especially for the smaller paintings. If you need an item super fast often I can accommodate it, you just have to let me know.

My paintings are stretched canvas and are ready to be hung upon arrival. You can also frame your painting if you desire, but it's not necessary, purely a personal preference.

Feel free to ask me any questions you may have!

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
  • Money Order
Payment
Payment in full is required before custom work can take place. We can talk as much as you like beforehand though to answer any questions or ideas for a portrait.
Shipping
For the United States:

I ship smaller custom work out via USPS Priority Mail (11 x 14 and smaller) and larger custom work out via FedEx or USPS. Watercolors and colored pencil drawings are sent out via priority mail. Watercolor and colored pencil drawings will ship one or two business days after payment clears and custom work will only ship with your approval of finished product.

ACEOs can be shipped out either regular first class USPS mail or can be sent out priority mail. There is also an option that you can choose WITHOUT the mat and I can ship that to you regular first class mail for the cost of a stamp. (Please message me for this and I can change the shipping or alternatively refund it to you after you purchase).

ORNAMENTS can also be shipped either regular first class USPS mail or can be sent priority mail.

Outside of United States:
The costs for shipping are for First Class International Mail with the option to upgrade to Priority International with the exception of larger paintings which will go priority.
Any customs or other costs incurred by individual buyers in their country are the responsibility of the buyer.
If my shipping costs are off by more than $2 I will refund you shipping charges. If you would like to pay for a different manner of shipping, or if I do not have your country listed, please let me know.

I try to use recycled material whenever possible when packaging to both cut down on costs and waste.

Custom paintings will take anywhere from two to six weeks depending on the size. If you have a rush, please let me know and I will see what I can do.

I am now shipping to select countries, but please contact me for shipping pricing
for countries I do not have listed. Thanks!
Refunds and Exchanges
If one of my pieces arrives to you damaged or not as you expect it I will do everything to rectify the situation.
Custom work is only shipped after approval from you, therefore there are no refunds. Your satisfaction with the painting however is guaranteed. I will not ship until you give the go ahead.
Watercolors, ACEOs and colored pencils may be returned with the customer paying for shipping within 7 business days. (International 14 business days).
Additional policies and FAQs
Please feel free to talk to me and ask any questions you may have before placing an order. Custom paintings will take anywhere from two to six weeks depending on size. If you want a size that is not listed please contact me for pricing. Thanks!
