If the portrait of your pet does not show a deep psychological insight,

it is not a true portrait but an empty likeness

However, the statement rings true for any kind of representation.

Your portrait of Guido is stunning! I know this little boy very well…. so I say this with true meaning… You have caught his essence in a most splendid and outstanding way. I am grateful for this cherished painting and I will show it to everyone who stops for a moment.

My custom pet portraits are incredibly life-like and when owners see their portrait for the first time they become really emotional.

A painting of your pet will give you joy as well as comfort. A painting means you’ll never lose touch with your pet; that they’ll be near you long after they’re gone.

Our pets are more precious to us than they’ll ever know, and a painting is a powerful and meaningful way to honour them.
