Pet Portraits by Linda S. Marino - Branford, CT
Hi, I'm Linda! I create custom pet portraits in oils or acrylics on canvas. Capturing the soul and personality of a beloved pet is my specialty.
Choose from a classic style with a colored background or a more contemporary style with your pet in its natural environment. Each pet portrait is unique and custom-created, aspiring to match my client's vision.
I work from photos supplied by my clients. For tips on taking great photos of your pet go to my pet portrait page on my website. There you'll find more of my work and details on commissioning a custom pet portrait. I look forward to working with you to create a pet portrait you'll cherish forever!
Portraits start at $450 for 8 x 10in. canvas, unframed. Larger sizes and framing options are available.
Pet Portrait E- Gift Cards are available through Square - any amount can be purchased to apply towards a commissioned painting. Please include the recipient's name and email address so I can follow up with an introduction.

What tip would you give pet parents for working with animals that you've learned as a pro?
My tip for pet parents who are seeking a custom pet portrait is to take their time photographing their pet. The more relaxed you are when taking the photo the more relaxed your pet will be. It may take several practice sessions. The better the photo the easier it is for me to see the details and to truly capture your pet's expression and personality.
