Pet Memorial Portraits

Handmade Pet Memorials by Artist Zann Hemphill
Custom Oil Paintings & Pet Portraits with Ashes

Celebrate your time together with fine art.

Hello, I Paint Pet Memorials

My name is Zann, and paint pets for clients all over the world from my studio on Vancouver Island, Canada.
I’m happy to accommodate custom requests, so if you have something particular in mind, ask away! I work with my clients the whole way along, so your pet’s memorial art comes out just right. My Painted Pet memorials can include inscriptions, favourite toys, and other pets.

Creating Your Pet Memorial

I create custom Oil on Canvas pet memorials and portraits using traditional oil painting techniques. Using photos for reference, I get client input throughout to make sure each pet’s unique features are captured in the final artwork.

In the Studio

Portraits take 1-3 weeks to paint, depending on size. I’ll send you updates for approval the whole way along.

Once you’re happy with your portrait, we can settle up and I’ll ship the piece as soon as it’s dry.

To make sure every customer is happy with their purchase before shipping, I offer a 100% money back guarantee on all my work. If you don’t love it, you don’t have to buy it.
