What customers are saying:
“What a great representation of our lil love Jessica! Anyone thinking of a pet portrait, this is the girl to capture the essence of your beautiful pet!” (Desiree in CA)

The portraits of our beloved dogs will remain a cherished item in our household for years to come. Thank you for all of your hard work!” (Kate in FL)
“I just wanted to say thank you again for painting Jager. I hung my painting so when I sit in my chair I can see him. This is going to sound so strange, but the painting is the first thing that has actually made me feel a little better. I can see him, sitting by me like he used to love to do, and his head is nearly life-size. Plus you just really managed to capture his likeness. I'm so impressed.” (Tracey in TX)

Melissa Smith is a self-taught artist originally from the beautiful countryside of Upstate New York which inspired her to become an adamant animal lover and influenced her creative passion. Melissa started painting pet portraits after spotting a framed poster of “Major General Woof” by Massy at a department store and went home to paint something similar of her rescued Chihuahua mix. She has found that being a pet portrait artist is her true life passion, especially capturing candid moments in time, in a cherished pet’s life.
