Dog Portraits in Oils and Pastel

Welcome to my gallery with dog portraits in oils and pastel! My name is Katja, and I’m specializing in painting and drawing dogs for clients worldwide. View some of my work with pastel dog portraits, dog portraits in oils and colorful dog pop art below. I’m a professional dog portrait artist and have been creating art on commission for decades, I guarantee you very high standards on each portrait I create. So, if you are eager to display a beautiful and creatively painted portrait of your dog at your home, contact me and I will be more than happy to help.

I work full time creating custom pet portraits in my studio here in Sweden and I just love what I do. Painting and drawing dogs as a full time job is a dream coming true really. Long working days could be a bit lonely with no-one around, however I’m always accompanied by my own two lovely dogs. If you own a dog, then you’ll know what a special relationship we share with our best friends. By commissioning a portrait of your own dog, you will be paying a tribute to the wonderful relation you share. I create all artwork from your favorite photos and based on your special wishes, send an email and let me know what I can do for you. Tell me all about your dog and the joy he brings to you life with attached photos today!

Make sure that you send the best photographs so that I can have a clear understanding of the features and color of your beloved dog. How successfully I am able to bring out the characteristic will depend upon the photographs you send. View my traditionally hand painted and drawn dog portraits by clicking on each portrait picture below or visit my other galleries for more. See the difference between the two mediums I have decided to specialize in and decide on which style you like most. I’m looking forward working with you soon, you most certainly won’t be disappointed!
