We have ordered charcoal pet portraits from other Etsy artists in the past. We wanted to give a more colorful gift to someone that knew their pet didn't have much longer, so we chose a paint & paper watercolor. Balancing price & talent across many shops, I contacted Allison to see if she could work with my timeframe/ photos. I recieved a quick reply. She combined elements of 2 cat photos, (older/ younger) & made one small change (fluffier tail) before shipping. I was amazed by how vibrant & lively the painting is. It captures so much personality. I liked that she didn't hide some of his physical quirks, making the image a genuine memorial. There were many tears when this gift was given, and a lot of thanks. We were told it helped ease the pain when the cat passed a few days later. We are grateful and plan to buy from her again.

About

Pickles. Puppies. Pals.

Hello!
I'm a trained illustrator who veered off into web design and advertising for the past 15 years. It's been too long, and it's time to get back to my roots! Children's books, whimsical friends, and pet portraits are my specialties. My goal is to make you smile or laugh when viewing my paintings. I hope you enjoy!
