Jeri was so great to work with! She really wanted the portrait to capture our dog’s look and personality. I am so happy with how it turned out and everyone who comes to our house comments on how much it looks like him! I would recommend her to anyone.

Jeri did an exceptional job with my cats', Chloe and Wilson's, portraits. I, as well as my friends, were all impressed with her work. Looks exactly like the photos I sent. She also has exceptional customer service and is wonderful to work with. I couldn't be more pleased. I highly recommend her for pet portraits.

Jeri’s work is absolutely amazing and she is wonderful to work with. She captured every single detail, even down to the smallest whisker. Not only have I already recommended her to my family and friends, but I’ll be a repeat customer for sure! Thanks, Jeri!

About

How It Works

Hi! Thank you for visiting my shop. I would love the opportunity to create a custom portrait for you or someone you care about. A pet portrait is a wonderful way to celebrate the four-legged creatures that bless our daily lives, whether as memorials, gifts for loved ones or simply because we love our babies so much, we want to honor their existence!
I started this business in 2013 and opened my Etsy shop in 2016. I have a Master of Fine Arts degree and have been painting and drawing (mostly animals) since I was a child. My goal is to help animals and their humans through my art. My hope is that each piece will bring a little love into the lives of my clients. I also enjoy donating 10% of my income from my portraits to animal welfare causes. It's because of you that I can do this. So, thank you! All paintings and drawings are 100% hand-drawn.
I personally have 4 cats, and 3 dogs. They are my family, so I understand the sacred place animals hold in our lives. Because of this, I will do my best to create a true representation of your loved one. It is very important to me that you are completely satisfied with your portrait. We will work together to get it right!

Thank you, and hope to see you soon!
Jeri, Brownie, India, Jake, Sugar Mama, Tiggy, Dingo, and Smudge.

FAQ about Custom Pet Portraits:

Do you work from photographs?
Yes! To draw or paint a portrait of your pet, I will need a good quality digital photo. If possible, make it a high resolution image so I can zoom in to see details. The better the photo, the better the drawing!

Please understand that I work from only one pose per portrait . You can send me additional photos for reference, but i don't piece together images.

How long does it take you to complete a portrait?
It depends on the medium, time of year and whether someone is ahead of you in line. In general, it takes me anywhere from 1-4 weeks. I am very busy during the holidays, so please order early!

Can you draw both of my pets in one portrait?
Sure! I charge a fee of $100 for each additional pet or person when working with all media except watercolor. For watercolor, I charge a fee of $50 per additional pet or person.

What if I want a detailed background, rather than a solid colored background?
This would cost more than a solid background. The price depends on what you have in mind.

Do you paint other things besides pets?
Absolutely! Please contact me and we will discuss it!
