Drawing and art has always been a part of my life. Pets have also filled my heart and home so I decided to combine the two passions and dust off my pencils and ink to bring the faces of the animals we love to life with their individual characteristics and personality.
These custom pet portraits are created by hand using colored pencils and black and white ink as needed for details. My heart and hands take your image and try to capture the likeness and spirit of your animal to the best of my ability.
Drawings are made to fit an 8" x 10" frame with a mat, or 5" x 7" unmatted. I supply a standard mat with each image and it's up to you to choose how you want to display the finished portrait.
Each portrait is unique and I'm happy to discuss the overall design, any additional elements you may want, and how to choose the best image of your pet(s).
How to commission a portrait:
Message me through the website or send an email to email@example.com. Include your name, phone number, and attach a well-lit, high resolution (300 dpi) color image of your pet(s) as you want it drawn. You can send several photos and I can help you choose the best to work from. I may need to ask for more details if I need to match the coloring as closely as possible.
Normal turnaround time is 2 weeks, but I can work with you if you need it sooner than that.
Cost for a single portrait is $45. Additional details or the addition of the pet's name may increase the price a bit. Two pets in the same portrait is $90.
Once completed, I'll email you the image and we can tweak any changes you want made.
10% of my profits from portraits will go to support the Darlington County Humane Society and provide support as they care for animals in need. I recently rescued Button from the DCHS and she has me wrapped firmly around her paws!
Button...my sweet rescue pup!
