Pet Portraits in Watercolor
Pet portraits are a better way to honor the life and relationship with your best friend or the animal friend of someone you love. Whether you have a new puppy, you want a pet memorial of your special cat who recently passed away, or you want to impress a your girl with a thoughtful gift, they are a great choice for art that’s both personal, inspiring, and sophisticated. They really add a vibrant, colorful touch to your living wall art or as a personal piece of office wall art in the very serious corporate environment. I offer a different style from the typical realistic portraits – a whimsical pet portrait in watercolor! Not convinced? Read: why buy art?
Pick Your Size
I am painting with years of experience in observational painting, colour theory, perspective, and composition. When I work on pet portraits, I am not just tracing photographs; I am interpreting the images, your pet’s personality, and adding my own artistic merit to each image. My watercolours are painted on high quality watercolour papers with high quality paints; they are flattened after painting and shipped flat to avoid any warping or damage. The portraits are not framed. They ship with an artist certificate and care instructions from from Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

Painting Pet Portraits from Photos
Ideally, I would like photos of your pet from all angles with natural lighting, but I will work with what I can get. Unlike some other artists, I don’t need a photo to be exact because I do not trace photos and can alter the image. This means I can also add things like angel wings, their favourite toy, or a different background.
Write about your pet: what makes them special? What are their quirks? Are they generally bubbly and happy, or more pensive and moody? Do you have color preferences for backgrounds?
Where to send your photos
Please email them as attachments or as links to: kasza.art (AT) gmail (DOT) com
If you only have printed photos, such as for a deceased pet, email me and I can send you an address to mail them to. I will return them with the final image.
Shipping & Delivery Time
All pet portraits are shipped via Canada Post with tracking from Montreal. Shipping varies between 1 week to a month, depending on whether you are within Canada, US, or Europe. Shipping is worldwide. Most portraits are completed in a week or less, requiring more time if they are bigger. If you have a special deadline, such as a birthday, please take that into account as well let me know so I can prioritize your pet portrait.
For Christmas orders, it is wise to order the painting in November to give me time to finish it between other orders and avoid postal delays.
Local pickup is possible.
