Have a portrait of your dog painted from your photos!
My main goal is to be able to capture the true character and personality of your beloved pet in your custom portrait. They make wonderful and affordable gifts, ideal for 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!
Typically, starting from when the portrait gets ordered, I am able to have your portrait completed and shipped to your home within 4-5 weeks. Rush orders are offered for an additional $30.
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.

We absolutely love the painting of our Ronin. Missy obviously spent a lot of time and care in creating our picture, and the result is a an amazingly accurate and beautiful picture of our dog. We could not be happier! She also was great at communicating the timeline, accommodating our requests, and giving us updates through the process. Just a stellar experience from start to finish. Thank you for sharing your talent!!! I smile every time I walk by our painting :)

Melissa did a great job on her portrait of our family beagle. I sent her several pictures of our dog and she helped me pick out the best picture for the portrait. She also kept in touch after the order was placed and made sure to have the portrait completed and shipped to my parents' house before my father's birthday. When my father opened the portrait it was so beautiful that it made parents tear up. Thank you Melissa!
