Wouldn't you love to have a custom pet portrait of your special pets? My main goal is to be able to capture the true character and personality of your pet in your custom portrait. They also make excellent and affordable gifts, ideal for Anniversarys, Birthdays, Christmas and other special occasions.
Here is how the process works!
1. Select the photo or photos that you would like me to use to create your custom portrait.
2. Send me your photo(s) via Etsy or email and a message sharing any ideas you may have (cropping, background, color, etc...)
3. Decide on the size you would like. Find my sizing and prices below.
4. Choose the item in my shop that defines the size you would like and place your order, or I can send you a customized Etsy listing.
5. I will contact you when I begin work on your portrait!
6. Once your portrait is finished I will send you a photo of your portrait for your approval (changes can be made).
7. Your work of art gets shipped to your home!
Just send me a message if you have any questions, and email me your photo to:
sketch143 [!at] hotmail.com or to your Etsy message.

So this is only one of the pictures I had Melissa paint. Wow, what a joy to work with a professional such as Melissa, and the work she does... words cannot describe. Definitely, way beyond my expectations. Very patient and understanding and a pleasure doing business with 😊 I will definitely be back in the near future! Trust me if you choose Melissa as your artist, you will NOT be disappointed!!

I wish there were enough words to explain how IN LOVE I am with this painting of my pup, Moose. She did such a fabulous job on this, I will cherish it FOREVER! Can't wait to get another one done!!!

Melissa did an amazing job on the portrait of my brother and sister-in-law's chocolate lab, Ranger. I asked her to pay special attention to the variances in colour around his eyes and she did exactly that. They are both thrilled with the painting as am I. Melissa sent me a photo of it when it was completed and then took great care in packaging it up and shipping it across the country for me. I have already referred her to two of my friends.
