I love my pet portrait by Kathy. She is an incredible artist. I gave it to my parents as a gift and they nearly fell over. They have been getting so many compliments, everyone is obsessed. She not only captured a gorgeous image of our dogs but their personalities and love came to life in the portrait. Amazing!!!

I ordered a portrait of my parent's dog to give to them for Christmas. It was perfect! They loved it and it was remarkable how it captured their dog's personality. Thank you again!

Thank you, Kathy! We could not be happier with Jane's portrait! Robert was thrilled with it--it will hang in the same room as the boys' portraits and will fit in seamlessly while looking very special in its own right. Robert was astounded, and the kids were all proud to have played a part along the way. You have given us an heirloom. We hope you have a very happy 2015.

I am a classically trained artist currently working chalk pastel. I believe a portrait is successful if it actually looks like the person or dog, and expresses a quality of artfulness at the same time. With a world full of photos it is so special to immortalize a loved one with a portrait. It is one of a kind!
I love finding the beauty in every person and pet by using tone, shading and hue- which is wonderfully fun and beautiful with chalk pastel.
I work best from photos taken in natural light as this tends to show all the amazing colors in the face, rather than the washed out look created from flash or bright sunlight. Usually a client will send as many photos as they have time to upload and send and I will give input on which ones will best highlight my strengths as an artist.
The photo must be in color unless you specifically want a black and white or sepia and white portrait.

Payment
Payment must be received in full before I will begin work on the portrait.
Most portraits will be delivered between 4 and 6 weeks.
I will send a photo of the portrait before it is shipped to ensure there are no major problems with the portrait and that it meets the satisfaction of the customer.
Shipping
Artwork is shipped via USPS Priority Mail. I can insure the package if customer requests this. I try to charge enough for shipping that I can calculate for packing materials and shipping cost, also upgraded shipping for extra fragile work.
Refunds and Exchanges
Minor changes may be done to the artwork, but with chalk pastel there is no erasing so no major changes are possible. If for some reason my customer is very unhappy with the portrait (and this has never happened!) I can make arrangements for either a refund or do-over.
Additional policies and FAQs
Please note that all custom artwork is copyrighted by Kathy Keller Bauer and may not be reproduced in any way.
I want you to love the portrait so I am happy to work with you on finding the perfect photo and working with you throughout the process to obtain a masterpiece for you to enjoy for generations!
