Custom Dog Portrait - Custom Pet Painting - Original Art
Pet portraits are a great way to celebrate and remember your beloved dog.
My pet portraits capture your dog's unique features and personality. I know how much your dog becomes a member of the family and I take great care to retain and highlight the details of their appearance and spirit in your painting, so they can be enjoyed for generations.
To ensure that we get the details right, the simple steps found below will prepare me to make the very best portrait possible for you!
Let's Get Started!
To make a great plan for your portrait consider the size you would like. Where are you planning to display it? The living room wall? On a bookshelf or mantle? Seeing your portrait in the space will help determine both its size and orientation. Keep in mind that a larger painting will have more room for a higher level of detail. The most popular size is an 8"x10" canvas.
Great! Now The Fun Part... The Photo!
Now think through the pictures you have taken of your dog. A great photo for a portrait is one that captures their unique expression. Photos that clearly showcase the eyes and facial details of your pet have greater impact and capture the essence of your pet accurately. Blurry photos are not good references to paint from.
Make Your Purchase
Now that you have decided what you want your portrait to look like it is time make your purchase. I will contact you right away about sending your reference photo and will communicate with you through the entire process from beginning to end. Multiple in-progress photos of the painting will keep you updated and will allow for any changes you would like to make. I want you to love your pet portrait!
(I'll contact you after your purchase.)

"I gave this to my husband as a surprise...his reaction... “I opened the box and immediately was drawn to the eyes. They precisely captured Tucker’s essence without question. It was a hard time losing such a special part of our family, but this artwork will share his memory to all who see. Impeccably done, perfectly executed, and will highly recommend whenever given the opportunity. Thank you..."
"Quality is amazing. She is truly talented!!! Excellent customer service skills too, very polite & helpful! Went out of her way multiple times to accommodate. There’s so many offering the same services online, but she is worth even more than she charges given how AMAZING her work is! My friend loved her dogs hand painted portrait so much she got teary eyed! She isnt an emotional person either."
"Our French Bulldog, Grace Kelly, is the queen of our home, so I thought it fitting that she have a portrait. Olivia didn’t disappoint. She painted Grace Kelly’s portrait as a Christmas gift for my partner, and he was beyond amazed. Olivia was amazing to work with and went above and beyond to ensure that we were happy with her product and that I received it in time for Christmas. Olivia is extremely talented. I absolutely recommend!"
"Our dearest friend was heartbroken when she lost her sweet little chihuahua Layla to congestive heart failure last year. For Christmas wanted to find something special for her that could serve as a constant reminder of the special bond they shared. We did a lot of research hoping to find something that would capture Layla’s likeness in a unique way and were lucky enough to stumble upon Olivia’s talented offerings on Etsy. From the beginning, communication with Olivia was quick and easy. She let us know exactly what she needed to paint a realistic replica of Layla and kept us updated on a regular basis. When she was about halfway through she even sent some photos so we could see how things were progressing. The painting was completed well within the original time frame given and the detailed rendition of Layla brought tears to our eyes as we opened the package and saw the finished product for the first time. We were truly amazed how Olivia was able to capture so many of the little nuances and features unique to Layla that made her so special. We will be forever grateful for her talented ability to find the light and life Layla’s eyes and replicate her sweet gaze in a keepsake that will truly be treasured."

"If you are looking for an artist to capture your furry family member, look no further. Olivia is truly gifted and you will be amazed at her talent. I was looking for someone to capture my sweet Bear who passed away last year. I can practically reach out and touch this painting of him. It is so lifelike! Olivia was also so easy to work with. She is kind, compassionate and listens to her clients. I am grateful to her and this portrait is just priceless to me."
We are in love with the painting of our 2 bassets. We will be commissioning additional paintings on the future.
