About

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.

Welcome! Thanks for visiting my shop. I hope you are enjoying all of the dog art!

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

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
I accept payment via Paypal, and through direct checkout.

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.
Shipping
I ship via USPS. Cards are shipped First Class, and larger items are typically shipped Priority, all with Delivery Confirmation.

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.
Additional policies and FAQs
Interested in selling my work? I welcome wholesale requests. I don't do consignment, unless the shop is literally right around the corner!
