Portraits for people elegant as whippets, resilient as a rescues....
You know someone who loves their pet.
You know their family wouldn't be complete without it.
A portrait is a gift beyond "just a thing",
it's a demonstration of loving the person
who LOVES their pet and recognizing them
as their best friend, as family, and support system.
A bespoke pet portrait says:
"I love you and I recognize the love you have for your pet,
I understand your dog is your family. "
This means a lot to us animal lovers.
Yes, sorry, this is a selfie...
I’m Luisa, an artist living in Montreal Canada.
If you invite me to a get-together and there is an animal present you might find me conversing with it instead of with my fellow humans. Can’t help it. They don’t do small talk.
I started doing pet portraits almost by chance when someone asked me for a portrait to give as a gift.
The day I delivered that portrait was the day I knew what having a rewarding job meant. They couldn’t hide their delight and this made me understand what it means to make a tiny difference in someone’s day.
I want to draw your pet or your loved one’s pet.
My style is modern, with a lot of white space around so the portrait can be displayed unobtrusively in your home regardless of your decor.
Visit the gallery, I have several options from highly detailed portraits to fun scribbly illustrations.
Either way, a dog always looks good in a portrait.
