Pet Portraits

Commission a beautiful custom portrait of your pet. Using your photos for reference, I will create a unique work of art in coloured pencil that will truly capture the soul of your treasured pet. Colored pencil works have the soft look of watercolour paintings with more detail.  If you require a portrait in another medium, I also offer portraits in soft chalk pastels and oil paintings. Due to their slow drying time, the lead time for oil paintings is longer than other mediums.
  • Worldwide shipping
  • 100% Satisfaction Guaranteed

 Booking is easy

  • Choose your size
  • Email your favourite clear photos
  • Book your place on the waiting list (a non-refundable deposit of €200 is required to book your place) 

I will guide you through the process via email until completion. Once you are 100% satisfied with the completed work and the balance is paid, your pet portrait is dispatched to you via registered post.  


Head portrait measurements are based on the size of the image measured from the top of head to where the neck fades out, this does not include the white space around the image so the overall size of your portrait will be larger. Whole body measurements are based on the size of the image height by width, again this does not include the white space around the image so the overall portrait size will be larger. Framing service available on request. Prices exclude P&P. Prices are listed in euro, please convert prices into your own currency.
