CHARCOAL, Custom Pet Drawing on Paper


Please choose size and color from the drop-down menus below to view the matching price. Contact me for a quote for multiple animals, or a custom size.


Your CHARCOAL pet portrait will be done by hand, in charcoal, on high quality acid-free paper.  


You may send photos of your pet via email to, before or after ordering. High contrast photos work best for this portrait style. Think bright sunlight and dark shadows. The more photos, the better. Many clients send links to a facebook or instagram account with lots of pictures. We'll work together to find the best pose for this style of portrait.


I have almost 20 years of experience doing pet portraits for hundreds of happy clients, and truly enjoy this work! I hold an MFA in Illustration, and you can read more about my experience in the "about" section.


This portrait will be mailed flat (size 11x14 and smaller) or rolled (size 12x16 or larger) via USPS. I can ship anywhere in the world. Please contact me for a shipping quote outside the US.


I require 1-3 weeks of drawing time for this style, contingent on your timely approval of any photos of the work. If you need it done faster, please let me know and I can possibly accomodate.
