Cat Portrait



Custom Cat Portraits

by Zann Hemphill

Welcome to my gallery of oil-on-canvas cat portraits. I create unique, handmade cat art from clients’ photos, and would love to paint your feline friend for you!


I paint cats from photos

To get started, send me pictures of your kitty and we can work on a composition together. You can use the contact form below, or email me at [email protected]

If your favourite photo isn’t lit or cropped how you’d like, an oil painting of your cat can take keep the parts you love while taking the rest to the next level.

How it works

1. Send me photos

I paint cat portraits from photos, so send me a few and tell me about your kitty.

2. Choose a size

I’ll work with you to make the composition just right based on your images.

3. Give Feedback

You’ll get updates as I paint so you can see the whole process—usually 1-3 weeks.

4. Enjoy!

Your oil portrait will arrive ready to display and brighten your walls!


Start your own!
Send me photos and I'll make a mockup for you.

You’re in the right place to get a unique painting of your cat, and if you have a portrait in mind I’d love to hear from you.

I did an exhaustive search on the internet to find the right person to do a portrait of my wife's favorite cat Riley who recently passed away. I'm so thankful I found Zann. She is easy to work with and you get to follow the process as she sends regular updates. The finished product brought tears of joy to my wife, and we highly recommend Zann. She is as passionate about animals as she is about her craft.

Zann’s attention to detail shines through every stage of the process, from planning (for example, computer mock-ups of your painting) to the final piece, she would always send me updates and made sure everything was to my liking.

Zann’s work is so amazing. This painting of our cat of Chloe was unreal, and she was great to work with sending updates along the way. Could not have asked for a better finished product. Recommend to all!!

Zann did such an amazing job on the memorial portraits I commissioned of my chihuahuas. Above all, the realism and detail she put in brought them back to life and I am so happy with the final result ❤️ these portraits will be treasured forever!

Zann was great to work with because she really has a desire to be sure that what she creates is what you want to see in the painting. So easy to communicate with and very quick to respond. I cannot recommend her highly enough!

Zann did a portrait of our two beloved pups (who have passed). It is magnificent, and brought back so many memories. It will be a treasured piece for our family.

I wanted to have a portrait done of one of our past dogs, so after looking at Zann's work on line and her you tube video I contacted her to get a painting. Zann kept me informed during the whole process. Then the painting turned out incredible, and is a wonderful memorial to Lune. So I will not hesitate to have Zann do another painting for us in the future.
