About

Video summary: NBC 5 St. Louis had a little interview with Portrait Your Pet back in 2017.

My goal for "Portrait Your Pet" is to share my creative talents with you and your beloved pet, and to give back to animal shelters.

🌟 OUR STORY ⭐️
Gary, our rescue cat, started it all back in 2017. I did a portrait of Gary as an English Lord for my wife—she, and many others loved it so much that Portrait Your Pet was born. I know from my own experience how much we love our animals and how we love to celebrate and memorialize them! I also know how important shelters and animal care organizations are—I wouldn’t have Gary without them. So, an important part of Portrait Your Pet (custom portraits and printables) is giving a percentage of the proceeds to animal charities. For more information about the organizations PYP supports, please visit
https://www.tenthlifecats.org and https://www.strayrescue.org

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ TRUSTED
I am proud to point to reviews for Portrait Your Pet; I am honored to have been able to make so many clients happy! Not only the final portrait but the Portrait Your Pet experience has been described with 5 stars and as a step above all other pet portrait services again and again.

And when working with Portrait Your Pet, you get me! I am a professional creative artist with 20 years of experience who will work with you every step of the way. I also insist on using the highest quality materials, so your final product will be stunning and will last for generations!

🚀🚀 WHAT MAKES PORTRAIT YOUR PET’S PET PORTRAITS THE BEST? 🚀🚀

🏆 Premium Quality Materials 🎨
–– Solid-Faced Canvas Prints ––
• High-quality premium gallery-wrapped canvas
• Genuine artist canvas with solid-faced construction
• Printed with archival pigment based inks
• UV protected
• Canvas will not stretch or sag
• Scratch-resistant coating wipes clean
• Ready to hang, hardware included
• Made in the USA

🤩 Quality Material (The BEST on the market).

With Portrait Your Pet you will receive a beautiful gallery-wrapped canvas made with the top premium inks and coatings that are formulated to work together to provide the highest quality, longest lasting product available with no wrinkles or indentations. Perfect corners with no bulging, including a UV protective coating to ensure color will stand the test of time longer than any other canvas prints available.

Other pet portrait shops will want to send you a file to download or charge more to add UV coating.

👍 Fine Craftsmanship (Attention to detail and based on your feedback).

Take the time to look around at all the other pet portrait shops on the market, and you will see the difference Portrait Your Pet produces. Do the colors and the lighting look and feel true? Does the head of the pet feel a little off somehow in the final image? Ask yourself, will the artist blend my pet's likeness so it feels like a painting from a "Master" painter, or just look like a head that was pasted on a body? You will see that Portrait Your Pet exceeds where many can't. From Portrait Your Pet you get a real artwork to hang in your house: a premium top quality canvas to show off your pet.


💲Value (A Professional Artist is working your order, and you and I make the work come to life).

I have a BFA in painting and have been working in a creative industry for over 20 years. I understand color and lighting and will make your pet look like he/she IS wearing the outfit. I take the time to make it look "real". For the price, you are hiring a highly skilled and creative professional and I will create a personal keepsake of a beloved member of the family.

You and I will work together to make something great, and personal. So let's Portrait Your Pet! Soon you will receive a truly personal art object to hang on your walls.

Frequently asked questions
🖼 CUSTOM WORK — Will I see a digital proof of my pet?

Yes, you will receive 3 "Sketches" of your pet in 3 different outfits. This starts the whole PYP process. Once I get your feedback I will start on a more detailed work called “Final” for you to review before finishing and printing the final canvas work.

📸 CUSTOM WORK — What is the best way to take photos of my pet?

Your smartphone has a perfect camera.
Taking good shoulder-level pictures of your pet with even lighting is best.

1. Smartphone in hand, take about 3-4 photos.
2. Even lighting inside or out, no spotlight, please.
3. Shoulder- & eye-level pictures work best, keep those ears in the shot.
4. Have fun! We are making art here.

The better the photo, the better the final Portrait Your Pet. But don't worry, your photos don't have to be perfect, they just need to let me see the likeness and the personality of your fur baby!

🎯 CUSTOM WORK — How do I give you my pets photos?

You can upload them in the Etsy conversation or email them portraityourpet@icloud.com.

Include your pet’s name and gender and any other details you wish to share. Have a story about your pet? Sharing your story of your pet helps me feel out who they are and what outfit fits them best.

🥇🥈🥉Why do you make 3 sketches when others offer only one if any at all? 😃 Also, How do I know which outfit to choose?

I want you to have choices, the Portrait Your Pet process is about you and your pet. You and I are making artwork together with your feedback.

It is deeply important to me to get your portrait right. You will note that I do not charge for this additional round; I’ll work it until you love it. You know your pet better than I do, after all!

😃 How do I know which outfit to choose?
Having your story about your pet helps me figure out what outfit fits best. You will receive 3 sketches with 3 different outfits. You select the one you like best.

If you don't like any of them, I am happy to give you more options. Your ideas are always welcomed.

With your feedback, we are going to make the best portrait possible!

🤔I am curious, based on looking around at similar artists on Etsy why your pricing is substantially higher? Can you help explain the inflated cost, and what that might include that others don't?

There is a great deal of quality, skill, and care in every work I make. I employ my skill as a professional retoucher to be able to make meaningful work that is truly custom and exacting--in terms of your pet's likeness, but also in the seamless melding of your pet in period costume.

It is deeply important to me to get your portrait right, I don’t charge for the extra rounds of reworking. I’ll work it until you love it. You know your pet better than I do, after all!

Finally, Portrait Your Pet uses high-quality inks and high-quality canvas with UV coating. You get a print (that looks like a painting!) that is ready to hang on your wall.

Portrait Your Pet also gives back to animal shelters from each sale!

🐶 Helping Animal Shelters. 😻

Portrait Your Pet is passionate about animal welfare and donates a portion of the proceeds from each sale to support the wonderful work of local animal shelters. My own pets have been from rescue centers and you really see how important it is to give so many abandoned and mistreated animals good homes. It is something that is near to me and my wife’s heart. Two percent will be donated to Stray Rescue of St. Louis and to Tenth Life Cat Rescue.
