Hello, I Paint Pet Memorials

My name is Zann, and I paint pets for clients all over the world, from my studio on Vancouver Island in Canada.
I work closely with clients to make sure each pet’s memorial art comes out right. My painted pet memorials can include inscriptions, favourite toys, and other pets. You can see my process on my blog, or on Facebook or Instagram.

Creating Your Pet Memorial

I paint custom oil on canvas pet memorials using traditional oil painting techniques. With your favourite photos for reference, you can give input throughout the process to make sure your pet is fully captured in the final artwork.

Send me Material

Email or Upload your photos and tell me about your pet. For pet ash memorials, you’ll need to send those in the mail.

Size & Layout

Choose a size that’s right, and I’ll propose some composition options for a painting from your photos. Once the layout looks right, we’ll do a deposit and get started on canvas.

Watch & Approve

I’ll send you updates during the 1-3 week painting process so you can give feedback and see your pet’s memorial artwork come together.
