Pet and Parrot Portrait Commissions

Starting at $100 USD

My portraits are hand-painted, digitally, with a pen and Wacom tablet. I start with a blank canvas and use my pen and tablet in Photoshop to draw and paint just as I would on a real canvas. Everything is drawn by hand, with careful detail, inspired by the photos of your choice! Digital portraits start at $100 per subject and include:

  • Commission fee & shipping to the continental US
  • Archival print up to 16×20″
  • Full-quality digital artwork file with print rights

There is a $65 cost for each additional subject and price depends on complexity and level of detail of the subject

The Process:

  • Use the form on this page to send me a message and tell me about who you want a portrait of and any specific requirements you might have (deadline, colors, etc. Please note a rush deadline might incur a 20% fee).
  • I’ll respond to your message with an email that you can send photos to. Please send me at least 1 or 2 photos that best represent your pet. The better the reference photos the better the drawing. Then, I need a 20% deposit sent through Paypal to get started.
  • I’ll send you a work in progress shot for your approval. I don’t offer revisions but I do welcome feedback to ensure my drawing captures the likeness of your pet. The entire process takes about 2-4 weeks.
  • Once the drawing is finished, I will send you a watermarked version for final approval. Once you complete payment, I will email the high resolution file to you. All payments are made through PayPal.

Why Digital?

I work digitally because it’s a flexible medium. I travel a lot and am not able to bring a full kit of traditional painting media with me wherever I go. I spend as much time on my digital portraits as I would painting on canvas! The difference is, you get to see a proof and have much more flexibility in making decisions as I work. Change your mind about the color? Decide you want a larger size? With digital paintings, you are part of the revision process. You also don’t have to wait to receive your portrait in person to see it properly – it gets to you the moment the painting is finished. 

What Happy Clients Are Saying:

KC was exceptionally wonderful to work with! The portrait she created for our bird is amazingly intricate and the use of colors, light and shading truly reveals her dedication to artwork. Not only was she extremely helpful with all of our questions and concerns, but she also went above and beyond everything that was asked for in the commission itself and more. We would highly recommend KC to anyone who has a passion for art and animals!
I was absolutely thrilled with the portrait that KC made for me. She is clearly very talented, and her attention to detail is incredible. I loved how the portrait looked almost like a photograph, but artistic and unique at the same time. KC provided fantastic service and communication, and worked with me to make sure that the portrait came out just how I wanted it. I would highly recommend working with her! Thank you again!
Her portraits are outstanding, she made Flappy look amazing! It was so good we had it made into a glass print ?
KC helped me get the best gift for my mom. She was so nice and helpful. Thank you again.
