Pet Portraits

Pet portraits make the perfect gift your loved ones or as a treat for yourself. Custom pet portraits are ideal for capturing puppies and kittens, a grown up pet or to remember a pet no longer with us. I am able to paint any animal, not just cats and dogs. My paintings are created on cold pressed watercolour paper. These make a great gift for birthday, Christmas, anniversaries, house warming or just because!

Portraits are available in two sizes, A5 and A4.

Prices are dependant on how many pets you would like in your painting.

When you place your order please email me high quality reference photos.
Your photos must be of a high quality to ensure the painting can be as realistic as possible. Please ensure they have been taken in good natural light. Outdoor photos are usually the best. Photos that are not of high quality will result in a less detailed painting.
If your photos are too dark or too blurry/pixelated, I will ask for new ones.
If you are buying as a gift or if it is a pet that as sadly passed away, I appriciate it is not possible to get new photos. In which case, I will ask for as many photos as you can retrieve.

If you would like your pets name written underneath in modern calligraphy for no extra charge, please select this when you order on Etsy and write the name/s in the personalisation box.

It will take 2-4 weeks to complete your pet portrait depending on my order diary. I will calculate the dispatch date on the day of purchase and let you know of the date.

Your portrait will be packaged in cellophane and posted in a card backed envelope.
Postage is £1.50 sent first class signed for.

Please email if you would like to discuss your commission before you order and send photos.

My relative was delighted with her picture, as was I in being able to gift it to her. Would recommend without hesitation.

I have ordered a few different pet portraits from KHGIllustrates for friends. Kims work is incredible!! Highly recommend 10 stars


Thank you so much! You captured both of their spirits so perfectly. I couldn’t lie it any more than I do. You are very talented and this is something I will treasure forever!


It’s Amazing!!! Bought for my daughters room but it’s so beautiful it’s now going in living room for everyone to see. I can’t stop looking at it. Just love all the details especially all their eyes as they have been captured perfectly. Best purchase I’ve made in a long time. Thank you so so much!!


Spent a while looking through Etsy looking for this type of product before deciding on kghillustrates. Great communication and amazing overall product! My mum has been wanting a watercolour of our dog for a while now, and I know she is going to just love this one!

Thank you, Kimberley. Will be highly recommending you to anyone within your demographic.


This is so amazing and beautifully done.
We lost our friend earlier this year and this will make the perfect gift for my parents to remember him by.
These were the first and last pictures I ever took of Skye and it shows what a perfect life he gave us.
