How long does it take to do a portrait?
Depending on the type of portrait, the photo and what kind of pet, my portrait time can vary
... Anywhere from 3 days, up to 2 weeks ...
Please send me a message if you need it by a specific date.
During Christmas, my books close in the first week of December (this is due to delays with slow postal deliveries this year). however, I will try my best to get your portraits to you before Santa arrives!
Hand-drawn by a Professional Artist
Hello, my name is Kristie Hunter and I have been a professional artist for over 25 years. I started my artistic journey by immersing myself in various drawing and painting courses, then studied at university graduating with a Bachelor of Arts in Graphic Design. After a few years in the gifting industry designing packaging, and a few years in the corporate industry designing marketing material, I decided to follow my dream of owning my own business as an artist. So, here I am, creating beautiful pet portraits especially for you!
Capture your beloved pet in a beautifully detailed drawing to treasure forever. Hand-drawn from your favourite photo, these portraits are the perfect Remembrance, Christmas, Birthday or 'Just because I love you' gift. I work on A3 size Fabriano Watercolour paper using Prismacolor pencils. I package your portrait in the best way possible to make sure it gets to you safe & sound x
PLEASE NOTE** Portraits come unframed, the frames in the images are for visual purposes only. Also please note I do not paint detail in backgrounds, only your pet's cheeky face.

Kristie is amazing! her paintings are so life like it's crazy.
Kristie was warm, friendly and extremely accommodating with my order. Most importantly, the portrait of Millie is such a treasure!! The painting was skilfully done and perfectly captured my god-dog-ter. Millie's dad is over the moon with the portrait present 🎁💞!
I highly recommend Picture a Pet. Kristie is the real thing, and can be trusted to give you a fantastic finished product.
I am already considering another commission
I loved my Pet Portrait of my dog D.j! Such a great job! Just perfect. All my friends I showed commented also. They all want one of their pet now!
