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. I'm a huge animal lover and I'm guessing you are too! I would love the opportunity to do a portrait for you or someone you care about. I started this business in 2013 and opened my Etsy shop this past year. When you place an order for a custom portrait, I will donate 10% of the price to the animal welfare group of your choice. All paintings and drawings are 100% hand-drawn.

The process for ordering your portrait is very simple. I work from photos so you can send me your pictures via the custom order button at the top of the page . If possible, send me the best photos possible to help me when I zoom in for those tiny details! Once you’ve sent me your images we can discuss what you have in mind.

Once I've begun the portrait, I will send you an image to be sure I am on track with what you have in mind. I want you to be pleased with the finished product and will work to create an exact likeness of your four-legged companion. When I feel the piece is complete, I will send you a final photo via Etsy conversations, for your approval. If you are satisfied, I will ship immediately. Because I work so closely with you throughout the process, I do not accept refunds on custom work. However, if there is a problem with your portrait, please contact me immediately and I will fix it!

All paintings shown here are examples of previous commissioned works. You can find prices for any size and media in the description of each painting or drawing. If you have questions, please feel free to email me. And while you're at it, take a look at my facebook page and visit me on Instagram @artforandaboutanimals. Thank you!

Once, I've completed your portrait, I will send you a digital photo for your approval.

Additional policies and FAQs
I retain all rights to each piece of art I create.

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.

Should I choose a square or rectangular size?
This largely depends on the photo I use for the portrait. I can give you a better idea of this, once I see the photo. Head shots tend to work best as squares, but not always!

My pet passed on, and I only have hard copy photos.
If you have a scanner, you can scan the image at 300dpi or you can send the photo to me and I will do that for you. I promise I will take care of it!

Can you draw both of my pets in one portrait?
Sure! I simply charge $75 for each additional pet or person.

How long does it take you to complete a portrait?
Generally, it takes me 2-4 weeks depending on the size and medium of the piece. However, I may have someone ahead of you, so timeframe varies.

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.

What materials do you use?
I use archival papers and paints for all drawings and paintings. Oil paintings are done on cradled archival masonite panels. Once completed, I will apply a coat of Varnish to protect your painting from dust and dirt. Fixative is applied to drawings when needed.All drawings are mailed mounted on a piece of foam core and covered for their protection.

How do you ship?
Upon approval, I will pack everything with added protection to ensure your portrait arrives safely. Prices reflect insured first class shipping for drawings and insured Priority shipping for paintings. I do offer upgrades for drawings.

When shipping outside of the U.S. buyers are responsible for any customs and import taxes that may apply. Please be aware that delays may occur due to customs.

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