Interested In A Pet Portrait?
All my Pet Portraits are hand painted in watercolor. Standard size is 8" x 10" matted in a 11" x 14" frame. Frames are included at no extra charge and come in black, blond or medium brown wood finish. Other sized portraits are also available.
I will work from your favorite photos. If you email them to me I will review them at
no charge to be sure the images are clear enough for a good portrait.
In general, a photo taken at eye level with your pets face is best. Looking down at your pet does not give good results. The head and face should be as large as possible in the photo so there is enough detail to capture your pets unique personality. If you are located near my studio in northern New Jersey, I can photograph your pet for an additional charge. If you have an idea for a special situation please email me and I will help you achieve your vision.
Finished portraits are usually delivered within two weeks, but can be completed sooner if time is a factor.
