"Witten‘s painting arrived today! It’s even more beautiful in person, and I am in love with it. My son and daughter-in-law will be beyond thrilled! Pictures of it did not do it justice… it is simply stunning! I’m so very appreciative for your working back-and-forth with me so much."

Hi, animal lover!


Thank you for visiting I'm Amanda Moeckel, the artist responsible for all the portraits on this site, and hundreds more. In fact, I've been in the business of capturing your best friends' spirits on canvas since 2001. I'm based in New York City, but my portraits are all over the world. They're always handmade, custom to the particular personality of your pet. Your happy tears are my ultimate goal!

My painting education came from from American University and I hold an MFA in Illustration from School of Visual Arts. 

Need another reason to choose me as the artist to commemorate your best friend? I have been in the animal protection movement for many years, and care deeply about ALL animals. Organizations that have received donations of my artwork include: Foster Dogs NYCBeagle Freedom ProjectFARMFarm Sanctuary, Animal OutlookHarvest Home SanctuaryHen Harbor, and more.  

I look forward to "meeting" your furry, feathery or fin-flapping friends!

For the animals,

Amanda Moeckel
