Pet Portraits

Jaime works directly with organizations, donating a percentage while creating awareness through her art.


Jaime is a mixed-media painter and illustrator, her work has been shown in galleries throughout the US and internationally.

“A few years ago, I decided I was going to do more to have a bigger impact on the lives of shelter animals. I started offering pet portraits and giving back a percentage to local shelters and organizations that rescue animals. So far I have raised over $2500 to shelter animals and commissions keep rolling in. If you would like to help animals in need, while acquiring one of my works of art, please reach out.”

Jaime works directly with rescue organizations, donating a percentage back to help the animals and creating awareness through her art. Jaime works from photographs, blending her abstract style and mixed-media collage with your pets portrait; creating a one of a kind, extraordinarily unique and personal, work of art. Pricing starts at $350 and includes a hand-picked frame for your mixed-media painting.


These prices include a hand-picked frame for your painting. It also includes up to 2 animals in one painting (for an 8×10 on up). Special dates, toys, or items that are significant can be added, but must be discussed prior. I will be honest with you and say that the more room I have to play in, the more it will appear to be a blended work of art, rather than just a portrait.

Starting at $350 for an 8×10 (11×14 Framed)
Starting at $450 for an 11×14 (16×20 Framed)
Starting at $600 for a 16×20 (20×24 Framed)

*FYI: Shipping is additional since it varies significantly, depending on size and weight of frame.

The Process

First off, I sketch your pet, working from photographs. Second step is to start painting, I use watercolor, ink and acrylic, adding as many intricate details as I can. Third, I work on painting the background, sometimes working on several backgrounds at once, so I have multiples to choose from. Fourth, I cut the animals out and place them into the painted background, incorporating collage and design elements. Finally, I frame the finished portrait.

I accept PayPal and credit cards. I ask for half up front, then the remaining balance plus shipping when I’m finished. It takes anywhere from a week and half to 3-4 weeks, it really depends on size and how much is involved. I can keep you updated on progress along the way, unless you want it to be a surprise. I paint directly from digital images, so it’s critical that I receive clear and well lit photographs of your pet. Full body shots from head to toes are preferred- Both sitting, and standing poses. The more pictures, the better! I like to paint as many little details as possible. I have to add this is illustrated version of your pet from an artists individual style and perception. They will definitely resemble your pet, but aren’t meant to be drawn completely realistic.
