"I received a painting of my maltipoo as a gift from a client.I was so touched by the thoughtful gift that I ordered 3 paintings for Christmas gifts. Melissa not only does outstanding work, but she is able to capture your pet's personality in the painting. I promise that giving a gift like this will be the best gift you ever give and might even bring the recipient to tears!"

"Melissa did a wonderful series of my furry babies as a birthday present. I have two dogs and two cats and I love them! Definitely worth the very affordable price!"

"I gave Rian and Kevin 'our' picture last night. I had the camera ready which made Rian very nervous. They ABSOLUTELY loved it! I woke up this morning, checked in on Facebook and the first thing I saw was your painting with the caption: The best present ever! A picture of my baby! Thank you!"

(Sue K, IL)


The painting from Pawblo Picasso was the perfect gift! After stealthily giving Melissa pictures of my sister's dog for the painting, Melissa was able to capture his spirit perfectly.

"I have just opened my reptile paintings! They are better than I could have imagined! What a fantastic job - would recommend to anyone who wants their pets painted!

Very talented artist! Thanks a million!"

"I'm sorry I overlooked telling you how much my children loved your paintings of Oscar & Finny. They couldn't be happier. Thank you again for your wonderful work. Get ready for many referrals."

[Tom M's son]: "I just wanted to echo my dad's email. My sister, brother-in-law, and I were all absolutely floored when we got your paintings of our beloved Portoguese Water Dogs for Christmas. It is amazing how well you captured both of their personalities in the portraits, while at the same time creating works that are modern and fresh. Mine is hanging on the kitchen wall, right above Finny's dog bowls. I will cherish it forever. Definitely expect referrals!

"Melissa-you did an outstanding job on Frankie's portrait! I just came back from the framers' shop, and they did a great job installing it in a "floating frame." They were so impressed with your technique of "wrapping" the art on the side and the bottom of the canvas...and so they suggested this type of frame to display your creativity. Your talent is displayed on a prominent wall in our house - this was THE best Christmas gift from my daughter! Much luck with this endeavor, and I hope you are having a lot of fun while you are making your "patrons" happy!"
