Pet portraits are some of my favorite projects to work on. Not only do I love drawing and scratching animals, but pet portraits are extra special for the person commissioning them. Very often, unfortunately, these portraits are requested to celebrate the life of a beloved pet who has passed away. For anyone who has ever had a special animal friend, losing them is as hard as losing any other family member. Other times, pet portraits are commissioned to honor a special bond a person has with their pet - when they're still living. I always hear stories of charismatic creatures and special friendships. For this reason, I work so hard to render every detail and capture their true character. It brings me so much joy to create a piece of art that memorializes the life and friendship of an animal for its owner.
