How it Works
Portraits are delivered ready-to-hang on gallery-wrapped canvas so they look fantastic with or without a frame.
If you’re looking for realistic, life-like pet/animal art, I wholeheartedly recommend Zann.The entire process was extremely simple and smooth. Zann’s attention to detail shines through every stage of the process, from her planning stage (i.e., computer mock-ups of your painting) to the actual painting, she would always send me updates and made sure that the painting was to my liking.
I was struck by how much the portrait really resembles our dogs and just how realistic it looks.
With every detail carefully placed right down to the look in their eyes, Zann was able to capture each of their individual personalities. Even their unique husky facial "masks" are right on point. Very impressed with the craftsmanship, professionalism and overall experience I had working with Zann.
"There are several artists online, but after looking at Zann's portfolio, I knew I wanted to go with her. Her website, process and everything was so easy to understand. "

"Zann was great! We worked on the right look and she really was able to show my dog's personality through the painting."
- Emily, March 2018
"I'm absolutely thrilled with our oil painting portrait of our dog. Zann is professional, responsive to emails and phone calls, receptive to suggestions, and most importantly - artistically talented!"
