Custom Pet Portraits–Original Paintings of Your Pet

Back in April, I wrote about pricing for my custom pet portraits. I acknowledged back then that my prices were deeply discounted, as I was trying to generate interest in my artwork. That strategy seems to have worked! I have been blessed with several commissions since that time.

I have researched pricing for pet portraits by other artists in order to get an idea of what my prices should be. Yes, I am sorry to say, it is time for me to adjust my prices. Even so, I plan to keep my prices lower than many other artists, as I want my work to be affordable. I also plan to offer special discounts to my social media followers on Twitter, Facebook and this blog. Please note that the new prices are a leap from my original prices, but that is because they were set extremely low to begin with.

Beginning July 1, 2009, the prices below will take effect. Orders made before July 1 with payment received by July 15, 2009, will be priced according to the current prices listed here. Get your orders in now if you want the currently reduced prices!


16″ X 20″ – $175
18″ X 24″ – $250

24″ X 30″ – $300
30″ X 40″ – $350

(Prices are subject to change at any time. Non-standard sizes are available as well, however, may include extra costs. I also paint pieces on wood, which would involve different pricing schedules.)

Prices listed are based on a single pet with average difficulty painted on gallery wrapped stretched canvas with acrylic paint. Prices may be adjusted based upon the size of the piece, the surface and media, and difficulty of the image (multiple pets in one painting add difficulty). Shipping costs are extra based on size and zip code. Payment in advance is required. Portraits generally take 2-4 weeks to complete depending on difficulty and waiting list.

I also do custom drawings and digital images. Please email me for pricing on these.

I work from photos of your pet. If you are local to Canton, OH, I would love for you to bring the pet to the studio for a photo shoot! If not, you can email me photos or give me links to Flickr or other online photo streams.

Please email me at to make an order or to get further information about getting a custom portrait of your pet. I look forward to hearing from you!!!!

Life is an Adventure!
