Pet Portraits

A unique artwork painted just for you, staring your furry loved one. 

Commission for yourself or gift to a very special friend or family.

How it works…

Reference photos for painting —All you need are a few photos of your furry loved one. Best if you use natural light but not bleached out sunlight or flash. No harsh lighting or low resolution. But if you only have limited photos, we can make it work. The better the reference photo(s) the better your painting will be. A good suggestion is to get down to your dog/cat’s level to photograph them. Lora can come photograph your pet if you are local.
