I specialize in creating commissioned, one-of-a-kind oil paintings of pets. I strive with each portrait to capture the animal’s likeness and spirit. From start to finish, the tools of the trade for me are oil paint and brushes. I create my work the way artists have since the Renaissance.

I use photo references to capture the essence of your pet in oil paint. The end result is an original work of art that is a spectacular representation of your furry loved one.

Our expectations were blown away when we saw our Scooby painting - it looked just like him. We are in awe of the talent displayed and how easy the process was.

getting started

For me to get started on your very own commissioned pet portrait, click 'Order Now' above to choose the canvas size that would be the perfect fit in your home. Submit payment and I will follow up asking for several favorite photos of your pet(s), showcasing their personality. I can paint more than one animal on a canvas (canvas size restrictions apply).

the Creative process

I begin each pet portrait by studying each photo provided, noticing the details that make your pet who they are. Then, I apply layer after layer of paint to create a rich, beautiful, hand painted masterwork that captures your pet's personality. The final product will be a family treasure for years to come.

Each commissioned pet portrait takes 3-6 weeks to finish. Once completed, I prepare your painting so that it is ready to hang on the wall as soon as it is arrives.
