About

How may I be of service? A Pet Portrait! Perfect!

My Back Story
I want to start by saying that I am entirely self taught. The only lessons I've had were high school art classes, so I had an uphill battle to teach myself to draw BUT I got to learn to do it my way. I have always loved mechanical graphite pencils. They keep that sharp edge no matter what and it lets you get all those fine hairs and detail like no other. So, that's what I use to create my pieces. Those, cap erasers & blending stumps and that's about it. I embarked on my endeavor to be a full time artist buy first starting to sketch for people I knew at the health club I was working at back in 2004. Word grew & I started doing local shows. I loved sketching AND getting paid to do it so much that I hate to admit but my work at the club suffered. So much so that, and I'm going to frank, I got fired. The BEST thing that could have happened to me. I had to make this work. I didn't have any choice. With a new found fire under me and the depressing day after day of working at a soul sucking job lifted I got busy. I continued working local art shows & in the meantime this "internet" thing started being something I could harness & I took advantage of it. The first place I started to sell my services was a Dog inspired site called "Dogster" . Sharing some of my work there got me followers & orders. People who still are with me today! On top of a couple of other sites like that I found (low and behold) Facebook. A lot of time & work later I figured out how to grow an audience there. So much so that that's where almost all my work came from. In 2009 I started on etsy but it has only been within the last few years that the pendulum swung the other way and etsy became where I was getting seen & embraced. It has been a long road & things continue to change & evolve. Even my work, but only for the better. My sketching experience building on itself, allowing me to hone my skills further & further. I look forward to doing this into a ripe old age! I never tire of this & sketching pieces for people of their beloved pets. Making them happy with a super special something to remember their furbabies by, be it they are with us or crossed to the Rainbow Bridge. Genevieve S

Frequently asked questions
How Long does it typically take to get my artwork?

All my pieces are meticulously handcrafted by me in mechanical graphite pencil so it takes time to complete each piece & I don't ever skimp or cut corners. So my turnaround time is usually about 4-5 weeks. If you need something done in a quicker manner I can put your piece through on a Rush. This basically puts you at the top of the list to be completed. There is an extra charge to do this so if you are interested please contact me so I can go over this with you.

Do you Do pieces in Color?

All my pieces are hand drawn by me in graphite mechanical pencils. I don't generally ever do pieces in color. If you need or want your piece in color I can & have been able to add in color to a print or copy of your portrait via my computer. It's not something I prefer to do as you will then be framing and displaying a print of your piece and not the original. But I can accommodate you if that is what you would like done. Talk to me about your specific desires & I will work with you.

How Do I get photos to you?

Any photos you have for me to work from please attach and send to me via Conversation. if you have hard copy pics to send me in the mail you are sure welcome to do so. Anything sent to me will be returned to you at the completion of your order

How does your process work? How Do I place an order?

Please look through my listings and select the size you would like done. Purchase. Once it goes through I receive a notice & will notify you that I got your order. I will then get you and all your information noted down in my books. Please message me any photos you have for me to work from. When I get ready to start your piece I will let you know. From there it should only take a couple of days to complete. Once completed I will send you an image of the finished piece for you to look over & approve. If there's any tweaking that needs done we will do at this time. When I know you are completely happy with your art I will get it mailed & I'll get you a shipping notice & tracking info. Shipping within the U.S. takes typically 3 days.
