people really love their portraits!
"AHHHHHH I LOVE ITTTTTTT! It's perfect. Seriously. I'm so pumped, she's gonna love it so much. THANK YOU!!"
“I discovered Melissa's art on Instagram and fell in love with her cheerful, vibrant style. I've since commissioned portraits of all three of my cats, and I am so impressed by how she manages to capture their unique personalities.
Melissa was fantastic to work with - friendly, communicative, prompt - and I think she was as excited to create the pieces as I was to receive them.”

"Woooooow 😻 I love it!! It’s Purrfect!"
"The portrait is absolutely beautiful. Melissa captured Wallace perfectly from his air of senior kitty gravitas to the freckles in his slightly-glarey eyes. Wallace had been such an important part of our lives and the house felt so empty without him. I felt an enormous sense of relief the day that I hung his portrait because it felt like he was home with us again. The artwork Melissa did for me soothes my heart and has helped to ease my grief at the passing of my best kitty friend. It's true that art heals."

“The artwork Melissa did of my best friend Atlas is a prized possession. I love that dog so much. I look at his portrait every day and it helps me miss him with a smile.”

"I'm so happy with my portrait! I love the colors and how the patterns, layers and painterly quality make it truly one of a kind. Now that my cat Bob has crossed over the rainbow bridge it is really special to have that memory of him with us. It hangs in my bedroom so it is one of the first things I see every morning.
Melissa is a great communicator, fun to work with and obviously loves animals which really comes through.

“Melissa has done portraits of my three cats and has captured their personalities in beautiful, unique ways that make me smile every time I see them. The details of each portrait are so amazing. I can't recommend Melissa highly enough. She's a great artist, she’s reliable and overall just a wonderful person.”

“I have a small box of Scuttlebutt's whiskers atop his remains, so when I saw Melissa’s ‘Whisker-Saving Cat Freak’ art, I felt that she just ‘got’ me and that she would love my cat Scuttlebutt and all that made him awesome. So when she started doing pet portraits again I knew she would be the one who could capture my little boy's spirit.
Melissa's beautiful portrait of Scuttlebutt gazes at me from the wall, a pillow that I can hug, and the mug i got so I can enjoy coffee time with him again. Seeing the light Melissa captured in my sweet kitty's eyes brings me such joy.”
