Paintings are in acrylic paint on an acid-free, warp resistant 3/8″ artist’s MDF panel, with a built-in hanging hole or a gallery wrapped canvas. Smaller paintings may be completed in about two weeks after receiving all the images, larger works may take up to six weeks to complete. Please consult with me personally if you have time constraints.

Paintings are based on your photos. Generally, 3-5 quality images of your dog, cat, or chicken are needed (with at least one of the images being in the position you want your pet positioned in the portrait). Photos can be submitted via e-mail. I may request additional images.

Please contact me with any additional questions at
I accept all major credit cards over the phone and paintings can be delivered (in the Chicago area) or shipped to you for an additional charge. Please e-mail me if you would like to discuss a custom pet portrait. Thanks!
