I had wanted a portrait of our pups for a couple of years, but hadn’t found anyone that I thought did great work, and was… reasonable. I started searching the Internet, and came across your site, Melissa. After looking through all the information on your website, and seeing your prices, I knew I had found the right person to do the portrait. I completed the order, emailed some pictures and heard back from you almost immediately. After taking a few more pictures of Baxter to go with the view of the picture of Bailey, then choosing the background color, we were set. I was amazed at how quickly your turnaround time was, and how beautiful the portrait turned out. Then within a week of the completion, I received it. I can’t express how much my husband and I love the portrait. Thank you so much for this priceless gift for a couple that loves their dogs like children. I will be happy to recommend you to anyone!! Thanks again! Read more “Custom dog painting Los Angeles”
I want to personally thank Melissa for the beautiful portrait of Mandy and Ella for my friend Kelly’s 30th birthday. I was at first hesitant… to order a online pet portrait, however working with Melissa from start to end was a pleasure and the end product was beautiful! I notified Melissa about 5 days before my friend’s birthday and she quickly got the portrait completed and she shipped it to me to make it on time! I was so amazed that she could do this in a quick turnaround and it’s rare that you get this type of customer service. Melissa truly cares about her customers and the portrait really captured the personality of the two dogs. Thank you for everything and your work is absolutely amazing! I will definitely pass your name onto fellow pet owners. Thank you so very much! Read more “Charlotte pet portrait artist”

My life long sister friend (Michelle Powell) had you paint my dog for me and it is truly a special treasure of a lifetime!
Thank you so much for the beautiful painting of our boy Shep. You captured him beautifully! Will cherish this painting forever!
My husband had no idea what he was getting for Christmas this past year – so when he opened up the painting of Jesse –… you can see the joy in his face. The portrait of Jesse was his favorite present and how could it not be? Melissa did a great job in capturing the true essence of Jesse – that face, that gorgeous Golden face. We hang the portrait proudly in our home. Read more “pet painting from photo”
Melissa rocks the party! Sometimes when a friend loses a pet, I send Melissa some pictures and have her work her magic making a small… momento gift for my friends. So I’ve probably ordered half a dozen pictures from her, and without exception each recipient has been blown away by her talent. Most have been brought to tears. And while most of Melissa’s “first pass” pictures are spot on and need no tweaking, when a few tweaks are called for, Melissa has been so cooperative in making adjustments. I just can’t say enough good things about her. She’s one good egg. Read more “Melissa rocks the party!”
If only the other artists I had contacted over the past few years had been like Melissa. I wondered why I had earned such good… fortune-seriously. One local artist did an excellent job a few years ago of Gobi and Mona, but when I recontacted a year afterwards, she did not reply. Another artist I contacted about commissioning a portrait exchanged e-mails with me but later discontinued contact. The communication process must have been too troublesome for her. The client, myself, had asked too many questions, perhaps, but that is speculative. It may have been for another reason. An artist apparently well-known whom I sent an e-mail to a few months ago did not reply. I wrote a letter to her; e-mails do not always go through, why not try a letter. No reply came. So different from communicating with Melissa.
My first query to her brought an affirmative response. She was ready to consider the work I proposed. When I sent pictures and she needed others for a different perspective, I sent those. Finally Melissa was ready to go to work and it wasn’t long after that a painting was ready to be shipped. This artist works and that is very much appreciated these days.
What about the painting? See for yourselves. She capture the essence of Gobi, the precious boy I met first on September 1, 2004, in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia. He lived with me in two countries overseas and was shipped to Texas where we lived blissfully for years and drove with me and his sister Mona to Alaska a few years ago. He passed on August 29, 2021, going to a new haven. He relives with me through the painting.
My professor, a lover of cats as I am, gave me permission to share a portion of her message in this review after Melissa included a scan of her finished work which I sent to her. She wrote, quote, “Das eigentliche Bild von Gobi und das nachgemachte Gemälde haben mich sehr gefreut. Die Künstlerin hat die Schönheit, Gutmütigkeit und Tiefe von Gobi sehr begabt porträtiert.” She wrote that the painting of Gobi done from the photograph (which I also sent to the professor) pleased her very much. The artist-“Die Künstlerin”-captured the beauty, the good-naturedness and the depth of Gobi, in the very talented portrait.
I couldn’t be happier. Thanks to Melissa.

This didn’t bring tears to my eyes when she sent me the proof, but tonight it did when she shared on her page. This woman… does amazing paintings and we were blessed for her to do another one for us. She painted Hank after he passed. If you want to honor your beloved pet in a forever one of a kind painting she is who you need to talk to. She captures each pet exactly how they are. It’s truly amazing how life like she gets them. She is so caring and will talk with you about everything you want out of the painting. We are grateful to her and her business.

Thank you for such a beautiful tribute of my sweet Kernie-poo. I received this on my birthday and it brought tears to my eyes, Losing… him suddenly was probably on of my greatest losses to date.
