Drawing realistic, natural looking traditional portraits of your dogs, cats and other pets. My portraits make excellent gifts for the holidays or birthdays, or even if you want something pleasant to hang on your wall to remember your best friend with. I now have portraits in different states of the US, Canada, UK and Europe!

* Can do smaller sizes by request, please contact me. Backgrounds on all portraits are $20 extra depending on how detailed.

I require a 50% deposit before I start any work on portraits which is half the price. If you decide that you no longer want a portrait from me and no work has been done on it I can issue a deposit refund. Only when work has been done on the portrait is when they are non-refundable. If you are not satisfied with your completed portrait for whatever reason, I am willing to make it right that is to your liking. I cannot refund entire portrait price.

Please keep in mind that there is a wait list. I accept PayPal, money orders or personal checks through mail. Once full payment is received, I will cordially mail you your portrait and shipping rates depend on the weight of portrait and where you reside. Portraits mailed in US will be shipped via Priority Mail USPS while international rates differ. Previews of completed portraits will be sent w/ a watermark before they are paid for so you can see what you're going to get.

If you have any questions or are interested in having your pet drawn; please contact me via email. I would love the opportunity of drawing your beloved pet. Thank you for looking!


My work is said to be quite realistic and almost like your pet is alive through the paper. I aim to create a composition that is to the best representation of your pet(s). I take pride in my most natural approach to subjects and your satisfaction most of all.
