Announcement   Fine art prints and custom portraits. Drawn to the Standard.

Welcome to Emma's Best In Show! My goal here in this show ring is to represent every breed of dog down to the smallest detail, as described in the AKC Breed Standards. I have drawn all of the nearly 200 AKC recognized breeds, taking care to match that Standard of perfection for each puppy.

If your breed has different marking or general appearance then the one listed in my shop or you feel a breed doesn't match up properly to its standard, contact me and I can customize a breed profile drawing to match your dog.

It was on February 17, 2012, that I came up with this daring idea. I was 14 years old and a high school freshman.

To draw all of the AKC recognized breeds? Not just sketches, but dogs that could win Best in Show at any and every dog show? Dogs that would take hours of careful, artistic design to make beautiful?

Yes, and I still held to that commitment of perfection up until the moment I signed my name on the last breed. I was fully devoted to seeing each dog as worthy enough to become Best in Show and seeing the project complete December 31, 2013, I know it was worth it! Two years, 189 individual drawings, innumerable pencils, even more pencils shavings, and a whole lot of commitment later, this project is complete.

To welcome all new visitors, use the code "AKC10" during checkout to receive a 10% discount on your order!

Also stop in on my sister's shop: theartsybirder.etsy.com. She is extremely talented when it comes to drawing any kind of animal. The two of us have spent countless hours working together and improving each other's drawing and coloring skills.

Check out my mother's shop julieandco2.etsy.com to find adorable hand embroidered pouches and bags!

Please enjoy the pack of puppies!

I had a portrait of my Mom's beloved Cavalier King Charles Spaniel done by Emma. Emma worked closely with me to learn exactly what I wanted, and the portrait was exactly as I expected it to be. The detail and colors are wonderful. Emma got the portrait to me in the timeframe she promised. You won't be disappointed working with Emma!

About

The Show Ring; in a Portfolio

Welcome to the show ring and thanks for stopping by my shop!

It was on February 17, 2012, that I came up with this daring idea. I was 14 years old and a high school freshman.

To draw all of the AKC recognized breeds? Not just sketches, but dogs that could win Best in Show at any and every dog show? Dogs that would take hours of careful, artistic design to make beautiful?

Yes, and I still held to that commitment of perfection up until the moment I signed my name on the last breed. I was fully devoted to seeing each dog as worthy enough to become Best in Show and seeing the project complete December 31, 2013, I know it was worth it! Two years, 189 individual drawings, innumerable pencils, even more pencils shavings, and a whole lot of commitment later, this project is complete.

These dogs took longer then I anticipated, but equally they became so much more then I ever thought possible. God has blessed me so abundantly with a talent and love of drawing dogs, and I thank Him alone for it. Without His guiding Hand, I would never have come as far as I have. It is His power, not mine, which has allowed me to continue on and to complete it.

I have been featured in the AKC Family Dog magazine (March/April 2013), Midwest Living magazine (March/April 2015), and have also donated to several nationwide rescue organizations such as Mackenzie's Animal Sanctuary and DFW Pugs, the largest pug rescue in the nation.

    I am a dog illustrator, a dog groomer, a dog owner, a dog handler, and most of all; a dog lover. I have other passions, yes, but dogs top them all. God's creation is such a delight to look at, and most of all to draw!

Welcome to the show ring!

Here at Emma's Best In Show, it is my goal to represent each AKC recognized dog breed in accordance with the Breed Standard. Each piece of art took careful crafting to fully convey the written Standard of perfection.

My prints are made to order. When you purchase a piece of art I will have it printed and shipped out no later then four business days after purchase.

Accepted payment methods

  • Pay with Visa
  • Pay with Master Card
  • Pay with American Express
  • Pay with Discover
  • Pay with PayPal
  • Buy with Apple Pay
  • Pay with Sofort
  • Pay with iDeal
  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
I accept payment through PayPal and will only ship an order after payment has been received.

No cancellations. All orders are final.
Shipping
I ship all of my artwork in a ridged, flat envelope via Priority mail. From the day I ship it out to when it arrives at your front door, it takes typically two to three days within the USA.

My international shipping price is an estimate, therefore if I notice that I charged overmuch I will promptly refund the extra.
Refunds and Exchanges
I stand by the quality of my prints and if you feel they are poor quality or ill-made I will gladly refund you. Contact me for details.
Additional policies and FAQs
All of my work comes from a smoke-free and very clean home. Warning, there may be dog hair...

All of my art is drawn completely freehand; not copied from photos. This leaves room for errors - I'm only human - so if there is something about a certain breed that you feel does not match the standard, please contact me. I will redraw that breed for no additional charge if you purchase the print. This is a collection of all the AKC breeds and it is my desire to have every dog be a perfect representation of its breed. I will happily correct any mistakes to fulfill this standard of perfection.

If you have any questions, please contact me!

Thanks for coming to see my puppies!
