Welcome to my gallery of dog portrait paintings. I create unique, handmade artwork from photos using traditional oil-on-canvas techniques, and would love to paint your dog for you!

PROCESS

I paint dogs from photos

To get started with a custom dog portrait, send me a picture of your pup and then we can work on a composition together. You can use the contact form below, or email me at [email protected]

If your images aren’t lit or cropped how you’d like, that’s ok! Because an oil painting of your dog might be the right answer. Paintings allow you to keep the parts you love from an image – and take the rest to the next level. I’ll work with you so you get exactly what you’re looking for.

I paint dogs from photos, so send me a few favourites and tell me about your pup.

Then 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.

Your oil portrait will arrive ready to display and brighten your day.

We were so thrilled with our first dog portrait that we commissioned a second for my brothers family dog when she passed. Zann is a consummate professional who works quickly and then checks in at every step for feedback. In short, I could not give a high enough commendation.​

With every detail carefully placed right down to the look in their eyes, Zann certainly captured their individual personalities! Similarly, their unique husky facial "masks" are right on point. So I'm very impressed with the craftsmanship, professionalism and overall experience I had with Zann.

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 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!

My wife and I were so impressed seeing our finished paintings. We absolutely love them! Zann is such a talented artist, her ability to capture individual features and personalities in the paintings is just amazing. Because of the great communication provided, we never felt left out of the process, and we are very happy with our dog portraits.

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.

DOG PORTRAIT PAINTING videos

To share more about how I work, I’ve put together a series of custom dog painting videos. You can find a more complete collection on YouTube, but these go through the basic steps I follow to ensure each pet painting comes out looking just right.

My custom dog portraits are all painted using traditional oil-on-canvas 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, or the final piece tends to fall flat. 

If you have questions about getting a painting of your dog from photos, get in touch! I’d love to go through the process with you and talk about the many options.
