Love Them FURever!

I specialize in dog portraits, but I also love painting cats, horses, and even people! Upload your photos 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.

Let's Talk Christmas Orders

These portraits are created by one guy (that's me!). As a result, they take time to paint, print and deliver.

Normally I would accept orders up to Thanksgiving, but this year due to shipping problems the last day to accept Christmas orders was November 18.

Alternatively, Gift Certificates are always available.

Have a very Merry Christmas!

–Steve

How It Works

1. You place your order, uploading good clear photos and paying half via my secure Paypal link.


2. I paint the portrait and email you a proof.


3. 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.


4. 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.

Each Portrait Is Hand-Painted by Me

I'm Steve Merryman. For over 40 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.

Watch me paint a portrait!

Here's a screen-capture video of my painting process. I paint digitally using a Wacom Cintiq monitor and Corel Painter software.

This dog portrait was created for the 2020 Spokane Pet Expo Cutest Pet contest winner.

Video length: 4 and a half minutes.

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.
