Orange County's leading pet portrait painter from photos
AFFORDABLE CUSTOM PET PORTRAITS PAINTED FROM PHOTOS
I am an award-winning artist based in Laguna Beach, Orange County, California. I specialize in painting custom pet portraits and work mainly from photos. It doesn't matter where you live, we can work together by e-mail and regular mail to complete the painting. Most of my paintings are of dogs but I have also painted many cats as well as horses and birds.
If you are looking to have a portrait painted of your pet at a reasonable price and with the minimum of fuss, read on.
Take a look below at dog portraits I have recently completed. Shaq and Larry are two Great Danes. Using photos, I started with a double portrait and then, at the owners' request, completed a separate painting of each dog.
For more information about my pet portraits in progress look here.
Please take a look at some of my recent pet portraits here. My online gallery includes paintings of dogs, cats and horses.

I work from your photos and from information you give me about your pet's natural pose and appearance. If you live within reach and I can take my own photos, so much the better. I do single portraits, doubles and sometimes triples. I can get your portrait framed as well.
Capture the relationship between your pets in a single picture. Read feedback from some of my former clients here. Learn about my prices here and contact me here.
My cards of some of the more interesting and attractive local landmarks are collected by residents as well as visitors. I can make cards of your pet portrait for you to share with friends and family.
The way I work to make a pet portrait is very simple. I will ask you for two or three photographs that give me a clear impression of your pet's face, coat color and texture, as well as any background you would like included in the painting.
You can send me photos by e-mail, or through the regular mail if you prefer.
When your painting is nearly finished I will e-mail you a progress photo. You can then ask for any adjustments you think necessary.
My payment terms are a check for $100 on agreement, with the balance payable on completion.
Prices start at $250 (excluding California state tax, currently 8 per cent) for a single subject in sizes up to 12 x 12 inches and thereafter depend on the size of the portrait and the number of pets. Portraits 11 x 14 and 12 x 16 inches are $300. Portraits 16 x 20 inches are $400 and 20 x 20 inches are $450. Add $100 for two subjects in one painting. The price of portraits with three or more subjects is by negotiation. Shipping costs are extra. I can provide frames if required.

You will find there a list of future events at which I will be demonstrating or exhibiting my work, as well as some feedback from my clients.
