"Genista Pawtraits" is where you can find samples of my work which I mainly do for pleasure, family and friends. However, I have recently started taking commissions for Pastel Pet Portraits. I aim to create exquisite pastel pet portraits from your photographs that bring out the spirit, character and personality of your beloved and cherished other family member, with their unique personalites, cheeky grins, they make us laugh and smile and love us unconditionally. What would we do without them?

I am a pet owner and animal lover myself, and I understand how much pleasure and comfort an original pastel portrait can bring, either by celebrating an adored pet or remembering one we have sadly lost.

A commissioned pet portrait or gift voucher makes a unique birthday, Christmas, wedding or anniversary gift that will be treasured forever by the recipient.

I hand paint each portrait using photographs as a guide. I am not trying to make the painting look like the photograph but hopefully to enhance it to bring out your pets personality and character as a painting. Several photographs can be used to get the required pose and changes can be made to remove e.g. a hand, collar, "red eye" etc. It is important to use as clear a photograph as possible as a guide as the quality of the photograph will directly influence the detail of the painting.

I love to paint/draw, it is my refuge at times and a celebration at other times. I paint/draw in many styles/mediums as you will see over the coming months. Please take a look at all my pages on this blog.

For Available Artwork please take a look at my pages and/or my Website. Visit my "Prices/Sizes" page and"How To Commission A Portrait" for information.

How To Commission A Pet Portrait

 I work from your photographs, so please send me some good quality photos by  email or post.

Please let me know which one best captures your pets personality. 
Ensure your pet's eyes are clearly visible as the eyes are very important to the portrait. For a head/shoulder portrait the face should fill most of the picture unless you have decided on a full body portrait of course. 

Ideally the photo should be taken at the pet’s eye level rather than looking down.This makes for a much better photograph.


When ordering your portrait here on my blog or webstore, you pay only 25% deposit

The balance is payable on completion/approval  of your portrait, and only if completely satisfied.

You can email me with your individual requirements and I will respond to your email within 24 hours OR check out my portrait sizes that are available to purchase here on my Blog or in my Webstore.

Email Address: thehouseofgenista@hotmail.com should you wish to email.

I am currently taking orders for completion in November, ready for Christmas so there is still time to order a pastel pet portrait for a Loved One for Chistmas 2012....

Warmest Wishes
