Custom Pet portraits and portrait earrings: dogs, cats and birds, Oh My! 

A big part of my success with being a working artist is my custom pet portrait work. Not only do I enjoy painting dogs, cats and birds, but while I am working on them I feel an instant bond or connection with the person the pieces are for. To be honest, this is one of the biggest motivators in doing what I do – that human connection. Check out the listing to get your own pet portrait here. They come with 3 size options and are reasonably priced! No pet is denied, I will paint any species, but dogs and cats are the most popular of course.

  • I also love to hand-paint dog and cat breeds on tiny charm earrings. I paint the earrings on dense board with a light protective coating and your choice of hardware finishes. (Copper, bronze, surgical steel or gold plated) The earrings retail for $38 and are quite lightweight. Generally the earrings measure 2 inches from top to bottom, but can be made to order and as such, can be larger or smaller. The cat earrings can be found here and the doggies are here

Future Fic time!!!! So Stormer was killed in a plane crash rushing to a Misfits show in Denver. The group was never quite the same and became an emo punk band. Jetta wanted more light in her life and defected to join the Holograms. Kimber, tired of fighting with her sister for the spotlight switched to the Misfits and broke off her secret affair with Rio. Aja got a bob hairdo and with her new-found confidence tried out to be the band’s lead vocalist.

These are hand-painted on dense board with a light non-toxic protective coating. Finished off with grommets, jump rings and your choice of gold or silver hooks – these earrings hang about 4” long and are very lightweight.

The first earring has the new Jem & the Holograms line-up (now Aja & the Holograms) with Shana, Jem, Aja and Jetta. The second earring has the Misifts with Kimber, Roxy and Pizzazz. Be sure to choose gold or silver hooks when purchasing.
