I Create Custom Art to Enrich Your Life.
Love Them Forever
Upload photos of your pet and I'll use them for inspiration to paint a beautiful custom pet portrait. The final art will be on stretched artist canvas and delivered to your door ready-to-hang.
How It Works
- You place your order, uploading good clear photos and paying half via my secure Paypal link.
- I paint the portrait and email you a proof.
- A. You approve the proof as is and pay the final half (I'll send you a Paypal invoice), or B. You request one free round of changes.
- Once approved and paid in full, the print is created and shipped to your address.
Normal turnaround time between order and delivery is 3-4 weeks.
I'm Steve Merryman. For over 35 years I've been creating successful, award-winning graphic design and illustration for corporate clients. But what I really love to do is paint critters.
That's why I created PetArtWorks.
While not as lucrative as corporate work, helping pet lovers celebrate and memorialize their pets is satisfying in ways that can't be measured.

Here's a screen-capture video of my painting process. I paint digitally using a Wacom Cintiq monitor and Corel Painter software.
This portrait was created for the 2020 Spokane Pet Expo Cutest Pet contest winner.
Video length: 4 and a half minutes.

"Steve, you captured all 3 of them. I’m basically in tears. Thanks for the gorgeous work.”
-Jim in Wisconsin
This custom pet portrait was created from three separate photos which I sketched into one composition to memorialize one of the Irish Setters who passed away.
