Pet Portraits are a favorite way to honor your beloved furry family! They are popular gifts for birthday, Christmas and anniversaries.  Pet Memorials are a treasured way to honor the life of a beloved pet. I'm an artist who works from photographs, so your pet can be captured in an artwork from your photographs, regardless of their age. ~ Sonja

What Included in Your Custom Pet Portrait?  Artworks are on premium grade drawing paper or canvases with a protective fixative or varnish. Completed artworks are provided flat and unframed in packaging until you are ready to frame it.  







Ollie had his portrait debut in this combo of pencil and colored pencil drawing. Ollie is a very energetic spaniel with an endearing smile. We combined several different poses to capture just the right expression for his portrait.
