I reached out to Irisha very late notice for a portrait of my two dogs for a christmas present. she built two photos into one as my dogs don’t sit still together. She communicated with me throughout the whole process and went above and beyond to ensure that this portrait was perfect as well as getting the portrait to me in time. Everyone loves the portrait and it is even more beautiful in person! I would recommend to anyone seeking a portrait of their pets!

Would definitely recommend, the detail is incredible and captures their nature so perfectly as if they could step straight out of the picture. Thank you so much, we are over the moon. Paula & Kevin x

Irina completed the most stunning portrait of my two recently passed away dogs, an English Springer Spaniel and a Black Labrador. This was a gift for my parents, who thought that the likeness was remarkable. The attention to detail, the colours used, and the overall aesthetic is fantastic; I really could not have hoped for anything better, and did not think such an immersive, lifelike portrait would be possible - but Irina showed that it was! When I look at the painting, it feels like the dogs are in the room with me. Even small personal touches such as contrasting the colours of the dogs' names with their respective furs all contributed to creating something special. It was lovely to work with Irina, and she was very patient with answering all my questions. In addition, she helped me to sift through many photos of the dogs spanning over a decade and kindly explained which ones would be the most useful to use for the portrait. Irina provided useful updates, and everything felt like it went extremely smoothly. I cannot recommend her enough and I will definitely commission something in the future... given that I now have a cocker spaniel puppy! Overall, it was evident that Irina was both extremely talented and also really cared about creating something lovely to honour the dogs. I couldn't be happier.

Irina is a truly gifted and professional artist. We can not thank her enough for capturing the images and characters of our 2, very much loved and missed, Boxer girls. The likeness is incredible and we feel our cherished pets have returned home. Irina was amazingly patient and thorough in the collection of photographs and character descriptions which enabled her to capture our girls on canvas. We are so grateful to Irina, for our incredible picture which was delivered, expertly framed, and perfectly packaged.

Custom pet portraits

A custom pet portrait painting is a beautiful way to cherish and remember our beloved pets, who are an integral part of our families. They also make exceptional gifts for family members and friends, often chosen as thoughtful presents for Christmas or birthdays.

Using a combination of soft and hard pastels, as well as coloured pencils, I create all of my pastel pet portraits. I believe that pastels offer numerous advantages in capturing the essence of pets. The medium allows for a wonderfully rich and velvety texture, perfect for showcasing the softness and highlighting the fur of our furry companions. 

In addition to pastels, I also offer oil portraits on canvas if desired. If you are interested in this option, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with me to discuss further details. Each medium has its own unique qualities, and I would be more than happy to guide you in selecting the perfect choice for your custom pet portrait.

Each pet holds a special place in the hearts of its owners, and I take great pleasure in capturing the unique personality of every animal. My goal is to create something truly wonderful that you can treasure, reflecting the individuality and essence of your cherished pet.

While I am based in the UK, I offer worldwide shipping for my custom pet portraits, ensuring that pet lovers around the globe can enjoy this heartfelt art form.

I understand that you may have questions before commissioning a pet portrait, and I encourage you to reach out to me. I am more than happy to assist and provide answers to any inquiries you may have. Additionally, you may find it helpful to visit my FAQ section for further information.
