Custom Cat Portraits
by Zann Hemphill
Welcome to my gallery of oil-on-canvas custom cat portraits. I create unique, handmade cat paintings from photos, and would love to paint your feline friend for you!
I paint cats from photos
If your favourite photo isn’t lit or cropped how you’d like, an oil painting of your cat can keep the parts you love while taking the rest to the next level. After all, cat art is the best art.
How it works
1. Send your photo
I paint cats from photos, so send me your favourite and tell me all about your kitty.
2. Choose a size
I’ll work with you to make the composition just right based on your image.
3. Give Feedback
You’ll get updates as I paint so you can see the whole process—usually 1-3 weeks.
Your custom cat painting will arrive ready to display and brighten your walls!

CAT portrait paintings in video
To share more about how I work, I’ve put together a series of cat portrait painting videos. You can find a more complete collection on YouTube, but these go through the basic steps I follow to ensure each kitty comes out looking just right.
My custom cat portraits are all created using traditional media and techniques. To start, I render a basic sketch of my subject, and then work up layer by layer, paying careful attention to lighting and form. It’s important to get these basics in before getting distracted by detail, so the final piece looks round and soft and realistic. In other words, so it’s as cat-like as possible.
If you have questions about how I would approach a custom cat portrait from your photos, get in touch! I’d love to go through the process with you and talk about the many different options.
