Each Pet Pawtrait is painted from a reference photo. Each painting is completely unique and captures the essence of the pet using a watercolour style I've developed over the past number of years since I began with my cat, Marty.
These are available as commissions over on Etsy

I hand paint each Pet Pawtrait based off of reference photos sent by my clients. Each painting is completely unique and I absolutely love creating special portraits for people!

A good reference photo is essential for a good painting as I need to see detail and colour/patterns of fur in order to create an accurate likeness of a pet. Some photos may be cute, but do not make for good references. Think of it as if your pet was having their school photo!
This video can be helpful in showing you how to take photos of your pet. Use treats and stay persistent and you'll get a great photo for a reference!
