Bring your furry family members to life with a custom pet portrait.

Each portrait of your unique loved one is hand drawn over several days to capture personality and bring your oil painting to life. All custom pieces are created from a good quality photograph. We also customise the making of the canvas using timber backing. This ensures that your oil painting won’t warp over time.
