Blue Willow cat ink painting

Turn your photo into a joyful work of art.

Want to celebrate your beloved family pet forever? Want to give an unforgettable present to a loved one? Order a pop art pet portrait by Dawn.

I’ll paint a museum-quality pop art portrait of a pet, from your photo.

My pop art style features a cropped close-up, simplified shapes, vivid colors, decorative elements, and exciting line work and/or pattern, all while retaining a recognizable likeness of your pet.

Two Painting Types to Choose From

10″x10″ Acrylic $350

Museum-quality Golden acrylic paint on birch wood panel. I paint around the edges of the wood panel and add hanging hardware on the back, so it’s all ready to hang when you get it!

6″x6″ Mix Media $200

Museum-quality ink, paint, and other materials on 100% cotton watercolor paper. Shipped in a protective, clear, resealable bag with cardboard backing, inside a rigid chipboard mailer.

How Does This Work?

  1. Take a look at the sample images on this page to see if my style is right for you! 
  2. Take great photos of your person or pet. For best results, I request closeup photos with:
    • eyes open
    • sharp focus
    • well lit
  3. Order your portrait.
    • Because I get up close and crop in tight, one person or animal per portrait, please.
    • For multiple paintings, please submit a separate order for each.
    • Upload your photo with your order. The upload option appears in the Cart. I may request additional or alternate photos via email, depending on photo quality.

What’s Included?

  • I paint with high-quality inks and paints on archival surfaces.
  • I can include delightful details such as a toy or decoration you specify in your order.
  • Framing is not included. Acrylic on panel artworks are ready-to-hang without framing.
