Canadian Pet Artist Zann Hemphill

Hello! I’m Zann, and I paint custom pet portraits.

I create carefully hand-made pet portraits from photos of dogs, cats and other animals. My pet paintings use traditional oil-on-canvas techniques, and are all made in my studio on Vancouver Island, Canada. For art studio updates, you can follow my work on Facebook or Instagram.

See Inside the Painting Process

For a timeline, pet portraits take 1-3 weeks to paint, depending on size. While painting, I’ll send you updates the whole way along.

Once you’re happy with your pet painting, we can settle up. Then 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.
