When my beloved cat, Aloysha, passed away unexpectedly, I commissioned Ruth to do a portrait of him to commemorate the short time I had with him. I decided to have David Bowie holding him because Bowie's music always meant so much to me, and he also passed recently. Ruth's painting was so perfect. It captured Alyosha's expression so perfectly; I couldn't hope for anything better. And Bowie looks fabulous as the Goblin King. Every time I look at it, I'll remember the love and joy Alyosha gave me. Ruth is so awesome to work with. I cannot say enough kind words about her. Thanks so much.

Words can't express the utter awesomeness that is the portrait of my dog with Floki. Ruth is great to work with. I am also convinced that she is a genius.

    I was inspired to make pet celebrity portraits because I felt a compelling need for an image of my cat with Clint Eastwood. Now that this painting is on my wall, I feel so much more complete.

Shop policies

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
I ship USPS, and I always get tracking numbers. There is, of course, inherent risk of loss-in-mail, so if you're concerned I can use FedEx (for the appropriate fees, of course).
Additional policies and FAQs
Prices stay the same for up to 2 pets per image, but if you want more than 2 it'll be extra (unless they are very small pets, like fish).

Write to me for special sizes, questions, inquiries. Oh, and if you're also an Etsy seller and you're interested in a barter/swap arrangement, email me for sure! I love bartering, especially for neat crafts that involve giraffes or octopodes.

I'll paint pretty much any celebrity you've got, with the exception of Celine Dion.

She knows what she did.
