Canadian Pet Artist Zann Hemphill

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.

Dog and Cat Portraits are delivered ready-to-hang on gallery-wrapped canvas — so they look fantastic with or without a frame.

Painting From Photos of Your Cat

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!
