Words can't express just how much we love and appreciate the amazing job that Eve did on our dear Xander & Star's portraits. Eve was wonderful to work with - prompt, attentive, such care, concern and warmth. It was obvious throughout the entire process that she takes great pride in her work and deeply respects the bond between us humans and our fur-babies. In gratitude & friendship - Megan and Julie

I purchased two gift certificates as a belated wedding gift for a young couple with two ADORABLE Frenchies. Eve sent me their me their final choices and I was amazed! They are absolutely beautiful paintings and catches Pudge and Mack's personalities perfectly. I know Tyler and Lyndsey will cherish these forever! Eve is THE BEST!!!

The painting is stunning and will be a family treasure. The subject was my sister's dog, and the portrait was so beautifully done. It was wonderful to work with Eve, who gave me a number of choices to make, and was quite helpful in the selection process when needed. I have already asked Eve to create another painting, as the first was spectacular.

CUSTOM PET PORTRAITS - YOUR PHOTO IS MY INSPIRATION!

ALL ABOUT VERYBESTDOG
I am thrilled to say my business has grown over these 6 short years.
It's all thanks to you!
I love creating a special painted portrait with every commission I receive and I feel honored that you have entrusted me with your pet's portrait.
I know how much it means to you - and I want you to know how much it means to me!
Most of my commissions are dogs, people and their pets, cats and horses.
I have done a few birds, a pig and a chinchilla as well.

A LITTLE BIT ABOUT MY PORTRAIT SHOP
Your 'very own' pet portrait is available as a hand painted canvas and also on accessories and notecards.
• All of my animal portraits start with your photo - from old family snapshots -- to smartphone photos. Most anything is OK!
• Every portrait I create is original artwork and the first step for me is to create choices for you. All of my clients receive 5 - 10 portrait proofs by email.
• Select your favorite one and I will begin your final artwork.
• I am usually pretty fast. Most of my portraits arrive within 3 - 4 weeks -- start to finish.

I can also create your custom pet art on portrait notecards and notepads, vintage style pendants, key rings,luggage tags, and leather and fabric purses. Take a look in my shop to view a sampling of my products and my portrait style.
In my Etsy shop, you will see a variety of styles and sizes available.
Each one is an original created in my Portland, Oregon studio.

AND THE MOST IMPORTANT PART...
Your photos are my inspiration!
My custom pet art captures your pet's personality in vibrant colors and whimsical brushstrokes - in acrylics, oil painting or watercolor style.

A big thank you to all the many Etsy members that have included me in their treasuries, followed me or made verybestdog a favorite.
I am grateful for all your support!
All the "very" best

    After years as a designer & living in NYC, I moved to Portland and changed careers. My family & I are in the wine biz -- and what goes hand and hand with a vineyard life? - dogs! Hard to give up being an artist so I started a portrait business.

♥ Thanks so much for visiting VERYBESTDOG featuring colorful and charming, classic - totally custom portraits of your perfect pet. Have some fun viewing my ‘pet crazy’ portfolio and the sources of my inspiration. And don't think I'm not in love with horses and cats. My goal as a portrait artist is to paint images that truly reflect the personality of my subject. I work from a photo that you email to me to create the perfect portrait. I add colorful and textural backgrounds and play with color, light, and shadow. When I feel I have captured your pet, I email proofs. You simply choose your "favorite one". At this point, the final artwork begins. I start with a digital print of your favorite proof which becomes my guide and finally create your fully hand painted artwork. It will arrive within a few weeks. I have tried to keep my prices very reasonable. I am hoping that you will find this to be quite a temptation and will choose to purchase YOUR VERYBESTDOG (cat or horse) ART! Any questions are welcome and will be responded to within 24 hours.
100% satisfaction is guaranteed.♥

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits

Returns and exchanges
♥100% satisfaction is my goal at VERY BEST DOG.
• If we begin a portrait and you are not satisfied in the proof stage, I will either work to make sure the revision is to your liking or you can cancel and i will refund 50% of your fee.
• If upon receiving the portrait you are not satisfied,I am happy to refund 50% of the fee by canceling the transaction. The artwork myst be returned at your expense prior to a refund.
Commissioning a portrait takes a tremendous amount of work on my part. I want to make sure you are happy, but if you feel we cannot work together to accomplish a portrait you love, I am happy to discuss how to make it right for you -- communication thruout the process is the key!
I will do my best to produce something you love, but the responsibility is yours to be clear during our time working together.
When it is complete, there is little we can do to change the outcome.
Thanks for understanding how important this is to me!!

If a painting is lost in the mailing process (which has never happened in my shop) I will re-do the painting, locate the painting and remail or cancel the transaction.

The care of your artwork:
Your VERYBESTDOG artwork has many layers of varnish and is hand painted over a printed giclee image. My paintings are on archival grade materials and will not fade.

Please be careful with your artwork and clean the canvas surface with a soft cloth such as flannel or t shirt material. Keep your artwork away from all liquids.

Additional Information:
There may be a slight difference in color due to variance on a computer monitor.
I do my best in the final painting to replicate what you have chosen.
