Custom Pet Portraits – What type of portrait is right for you?

When you decide to have a portrait created of your pet, there are so many options it can be hard to know which style or type of portrait to choose! Would you want a realistic pet portrait, something symbolic and meaningful as a memorial of your pet, a bright and colorful pet portrait, a pop art pet portrait, or maybe something completely custom and unique, with you and your pet together in the portrait! 

I offer all of these options and more, painting pet portraits from your photos in a variety of styles and on a variety of mediums. 

Check out my store at artbyisadora.etsy.com to explore some of your pet portrait options! There are lots of great styles to choose from. 

In addition to the standard options in my shop, I can always create something completely custom, so please contact me if you don't see exactly what you're looking for in my shop!

VoyagePhoenix goes in-depth about the entire Phoenix area, from movers and shakers of the area, to night life in the city, to where to find the best food.

Memorial Pet Portraits with Names

Recently I've been getting a lot of orders for Day of the Dead style memorial pet portraits with the pet's name in a banner. I have to say that I really love the way this creates that extra personalized touch for these portraits. The portraits are painted in a Day of the Dead style, which is a Mexican tradition to remember loved ones who have passed on, and support them in their spiritual journey. I love the celebratory approach to remembering loved ones, and it makes for beautiful, colorful memorial pet portraits. 

People love their pets like family, and it is always such an honor to create memorial portraits which do honor to a beloved pet's memory. As always, I love what I do and I am thankful to my customers for giving me the opportunity to memorialize their pets.

Custom “We Can Do It!” Painting with your strong girl in it – feminist gift

Show the strong little girl in your life that "she can do it" with her own, custom-painted "We Can Do It!" painting featuring her caricature in the painting! This is the perfect feminist gift for the holidays. Rebel girls rejoice in gifts celebrating the strength and power of our future generation of women!

Click here to order this custom painting for your empowered little girl! Prices start at just $100 for an 8" x 10" canvas size.

I originally painted the sample shown in the photos for my own little girl's room. She loved it and said, "Mommy, I look so powerful!" when I hung it above her bed. I immediately decided to offer it in my shop so that, I hope, many other little girls will feel similarly empowered to see their own caricature painted in this iconic image.

The painting itself is created on a high quality, archival canvas, gallery-wrapped on an extra-deep 1.5 inch deep stretcher bar. I use only professional quality acrylic paints and canvasses, just like I do for the paintings I send off to art galleries and art shows. Even if it's intended for kids, I make sure that this is still an heirloom quality piece. I also install a professional, strong, coated hanging wire for you, so it's ready to hang the moment you pull it out of the box.

Custom Painting for Children’s Room or Nursery – Upscale Children’s Decor

Monsters are friends, too!

This painting allows you to order a large, hand painted portrait of your own child or children right in the middle of this whimsical monster scene! Who knows what amazing adventures your children and these adorable monsters are up to. Only their imaginations can set the limits!

This idea began when I painted the original "Monster Parade" painting with my own son leading the march. A mom-friend loved it and asked if she could order one just like it with her two sons. I decided to open it up to orders from anybody, and have the listing in my Etsy shop.

Click here to order a custom, large painting of your child or children leading the monster parade!

This painting is huge, at 12" high by 36" wide. It will bring bright, fun color and whimsy to any play room, child's room or nursery! It is painted by a professional artist (myself), and because you are ordering something with most of the design already set, you are not going to pay the huge cost of a completely custom painting like this at that size.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions, or check out the ordering page for more details.

Custom Day of the Dead Portraits of People and Couples Now Available

I was originally contacted about painting a Dia de los Muertos portrait of a woman by somebody who had seen my Dia de los Muertos pet portraits. I was thrilled and really enjoyed painting it. Visitors to my studio who saw if on the easel loved it as well, and that was my sign. I am now offering these beautiful portraits in my shop. Order Day of the Dead couples portraits as a really special wedding gift for your engaged friends, or contact me for special arrangements to use them as your wedding invitation!

Click here to order your own Day of the Dead Custom Portrait. Many sizes are available, all on quality stretched canvasses, with deep sides which have the beautiful added detail work shown in the photos below.

Day of the Dead Pet Portrait on Rice Paper

Day of the Dead Style Pet Memorial

Similar to the previous portrait, these are painted in a Day of the Dead style with your pet's name in a banner. The difference is that these are painted on canvas, so there are more size options, and the entire background is hand-painted with flower accents. This is a popular pet memorial painting.
