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.

I had a portrait of our pup Hank made for my husband’s birthday. It brought tears to his eyes. He loves it, as do I. Thank you Missy.

This was a perfect way to remember a pet that had passed. Communication with the seller was great, she was upfront about timing and shipping. The finished product was even better than I had hoped for, she was able to capture our dog's sweet and fun spirit. I would highly recommend!!

Every single bit of my experience with Melissa was wonderful. Our beloved dog lived until she was 16, and when she was gone we were searching for a proper way to memorialize her. Melissa not only captured every ounce of Hazel's essence from the photographs I provided, but also added or changed a few small elements of the picture to best suit our needs. It was completed during the busy Christmas season, and shipped in a secure package with great care. I have already recommended her work to several of my friends and family. Thank you so much!

WOW!!! The painting was amazing. I cannot say enough nice things about it. Melissa painted a custom painting of my dog, and it was absolutely amazing. She captured the personality of my dog and really brought her to life in the painting. Just fantastic. Melissa was so easy to work with as well. I will definitely be a returning customer!
