    A 5"x 7" Original Custom Watercolor Pet Portrait (White Background) makes a wonderful gift or a treasured keepsake. These original illustrations offer a creative take on your favorite fur friend. I use pencil and watercolor to create simple texture and depth. My pet portraits capture the distinctive traits and character of pets. The eyes are the heart of the artwork. I strive to capture their personalities through their eyes. Please note when I sketch the pet portrait, the background of the photo will be removed. The subject, of the portrait, is the only portion of the photo that will be sketched.

    This style of artwork is drawn on a 300lb coldpress watercolor paper. Please note that the watercolor paper is hand cut, for each order, and some pieces of paper may not have a deckled edge, like those in the photos listed above.

    PLEASE PROVIDE THE INFO IN THIS CHECK LIST, IN THE "ADD AN OPTIONAL NOTE" DURING CHECKOUT. This information could also be provided, when you email the photo, for your pet portrait.

    1. Do you want the collar visible? If yes, go to question two. If no, go to question four.

    2. If yes, if the name tag is visible, do you want a name on the tag? If yes, go to question three. If no, go to question four.

    3. If yes, please provide the name.

    The examples listed above are some of my previous custom pen and ink pet portrait illustrations. Please note that the images above have my watermark on them and my logo does not appear, on the actual artwork.

    Feel free to place your order, then send a high-quality picture of your pet to info [!at], and I will contact you. Please keep in mind, if something is not shown in the photo provided, it will not be represented in the completed artwork however I am willing to work with you to create a memorable one-of-a-kind piece of art.

    Mary Evelyn’s work is amazing! She captured my son’s cat, Gates’, personality to the T! I gasped and almost cried when I opened the package (which by the way was beautifully and carefully packaged!) because it is a perfect rendition of Gates! My son will love this gift and have a forever keepsake of his beloved Gates! I HIGHLY recommend Mary Evelyn’s work!!!

    Shortly after our much beloved little dog, Maggie Mae, died, I contacted Mary Evelyn to order a pen and ink portrait. I hoped to possibly have it in time for a Father's Day surprise for my husband. Amazingly, we received a copy of the portrait to preview in a couple days. When I opened the attachment, Mary Evelyn's work truly took my breath away. It was as if Maggie Mae was looking directly at me. She had captured her spirit in a way I never imagined possible. It was perfect in every way. Shipping was very quick and Mary Evelyn goes above and beyond there as well, wrapping the portrait with such care and sending a personal note. We have since had it framed and it now hangs in a special place in our living room. We all love this picture and are truly grateful to Mary Evelyn for sharing her talent and making this memory possible!

    The photo of my pup looked identical to the picture. Absolutely loved it!
