Pet Portrait Paintings - Bellingham, WA
Pacific Northwest artist specializing pet portraiture and wildlife painting done in oil or acrylic paint.
Paintings start at $84 + Shipping for the acrylic 6x6 size. Prices go from there depending on medium, size, and number of pets.
Both my acrylic and oil paintings look similar due to the techniques that I use. An acrylic painting will dry and be ready to ship much faster. An oil painting will take longer to dry but provides a richer, more vibrant color.
Paintings are done on Heavy Duty Canvas with a 1.5” deep profile. The canvas will be ready to hang as is with the edges painted, no framing needed. A layer of varnish is added to protect your art from dust and scratches and provide an even sheen on the painting.

Composition, details, background color, size, medium, and any expectations can all be discussed before placing an order!

What tip would you give pet parents for working with animals that you've learned as a pro?
The more detailed your photograph is, the more detailed your final painting can be. Photos of your pet in natural light, preferably in the shade to prevent harsh shadows, work really well. Crouching to get at your pet's level is helpful for creating good perspective, and this will translate best to canvas. Photographing your pet on a hard surface such as wood flooring, concrete or windowsills is ideal as it allows us to see their paws. Remember that the eyes are the most expressive part of an animal’s face!
What is one thing you want pet parents to know about you? It can be whatev-fur you'd like!
I am currently working on earning my Masters of Arts in Biology! I hope to use art to promote conservation of the animals on our planet.
