Announcement I closed this shop (for good, I thought) in August 2014. But the holidays are here and I have a lot of inventory left that would make great gifts; so, I'm back, for a bit. Thank you for stopping by, and thank you to all of my wonderful customers and clients over the years.

Bought from this shop before and love the cards! Shop owner very responsive.
I was a broke grad school student...
...and was of the age where all of my friends were getting married. I didn't have the money to write out checks for gifts at a couple hundred a pop, so I had to get creative. For one particular couple, I thought to myself: How can I use my artistic talent to make something that they would treasure? So I created a portrait of their dog. It was a mosaic tile portrait. It took forEVER.
One day, my brother-in-law saw me working on the portrait, and casually said, "You know, you should really go into business doing this." He planted the seed.
I did an oil dog portrait next. And another one. These portraits were so well received, I seriously considered doing it for real.
That was almost 7 years and 130-something pet portraits ago.

Hi. I'm Christine: painter, designer, crafter, art teacher, and most recently...mommy. Born in Philadelphia, raised in southern New Jersey, now living close enough to the Atlantic Ocean to not have a basement.
I offer bulk listings for cards, but if you require an amount that is not found in those listings, let me know, and I'll happily create a custom listing just for you.
Accepted payment methods
Custom digital pet portraits: I have them listed for the full price; however, you can split it up. I am happy to do a custom listing for you like that. I require a deposit of at least 50%. Upon approval of the portrait, the balance is due (including shipping), and then I ship the portrait.
I try my best to ship within three days of receiving an order. Please allow 3-5, as I have a toddler and therefore, the best laid plans to get to the post office can get ruined pretty darn quick! if your order is a rush, please do let me know and I'll make sure to accommodate that request.
