Hello, I’m Zann. I’m a professional cat portrait artist. I create custom oil paintings of cats (and other pets) in my Vancouver Island studio—completely by hand. Cat paintings from photos are my specialty.
Painting custom cat art usually takes 1-3 weeks, and I ship all over Canada and the US. You can see inside the studio with videos and portrait stories through my newsletter, or on Instagram & Facebook.
Send me Photos
First, email or upload photos and tell me about your cat portrait: is it a gift? A memorial? Part of a series?
Then choose a size that fits your vision. Together we’ll look at cat portrait compositions.
Time to put brush to canvas! I’ll send you updates during so you can give feedback until it’s just right. Painting and drying take 1-3 weeks.
Dog and Cat Portraits are delivered ready-to-hang on gallery-wrapped canvas — so they look fantastic with or without a frame.
One of the advantages of painted cat portraits: I can compensate for a lot.
For example, let’s your favourite photo isn’t great quality, or is missing a piece, that’s ok! A custom portrait painting can take keep what you love and take the rest to the next level.
To take the very best reference photos, try to get a pic of your cat in natural light, like near a window, with the indoor lights off.
Don’t worry — I can work with what you have!
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. Every time she sent me an update of the portrait, she would clearly explain what's been done and the plan going forward. I am extremely satisfied with the final product."
