Original Pet Portraits and Animal Art from Art by Karie-Ann

Pastel and pencil pet portraits from photos enable stunningly accurate animal paintings, people, pet paintings and wildlife art to be recreated from your favourite pet photographs and images. Each pencil stroke captures the finest of details, ensuring a life-like treasured keepsake is created. Individual hairs in fur and hair are detailed. An animal or people painting becomes a truly realistic glimpse back to fond memories. I produce portraits from your images, an exact recreation for you to keep. You can view the animal paintings progress to ensure it is perfect and lives up to your expectations. In our very busy lives, we are sometimes lucky enough to own the pet of a lifetime, that constant companion you just cannot imagine being without. Unfortunately time passes and we lose our beloved friend. Why not have a beautiful pet portrait painted? Ensure your memories do not fade with time but instead remind of all those wonderful moments you had together. I create art to treasure forever of something very personal and dear to you.
