Maya’s Pet Portrait


This was a surprise Christmas gift from a husband to his wife, but he couldn’t resist hinting and said a few months ahead of time “I’ve gotten you something very special, but it will take months to make.” On Christmas she received the gift certificate for my pet portraits with the full experience of working together with the artist her self.

Maya is a young happy and energetic Alaskan Klee Kai (think mini husky). She wears a bright pink name collar and we used that to inspire her background color to represent her true essence. What a fun and lively portrait, just like Maya.


“Thank you for your passion, amazing skills, ability to connect with clients, and your valuable time. You paint with your heart, and your paintings not only reflect the souls of those lovely animals, but also the feelings of their owners and how they see their pets.  We are so lucky to get on your schedule. Big brownie points for my husband!
“It’s been such a great journey together for the past few weeks, while I’m excited that the painting is completed and can be hung at home, I will also be missing you and missing working with you.”
