“She truly captured his essence and the only word I can use to describe her work is magical.”

-Victoria Leigh



I just can’t get over it… I am never at a loss for words and I just can’t describe what it feels like to look at this. You captured her perfectly but it feels like so much more than that. The part of her that feels lost and gone after she died feels somehow brought back to life in this portrait… She was the best dog and while we have her ashes and lots of memories, this portrait feels like all the untethered-ness left behind after she was gone has come together. I endlessly love this! And you!!! I can’t thank you enough!

Katie did an amazing job on our commission of my parent’s dog, Tucker. She truly captured his essence and the only word I can use to describe her work is magical. My dad was moved to tears when he opened it on Christmas morning! I look forward to using her again. Absolutely genius work!

When my parents beloved dog crossed the rainbow bridge, I knew Katie would be the perfect fit to create something sweet to commemorate her life. My parents were brought to tears when they saw it. As a long time follower of Katie’s artwork, it is hard to put into words how unbelievably lifelike her portraits are – regardless of size or color option. On top of the amazing work – excellent communication/service. Fair pricing at several price points, helpful & responsive, and I had the portrait much sooner than I expected! Highly recommend!

I’ve admired your work for a long time and have always been amazed by how realistic your drawings are. You have such a beautiful talent. When my almost 16 year old dog, Boomer, passed I knew you were who I would pick to honor him. Having him for 16 years myself, he was my baby. You captured his spirit and fluffy face and even his nose was perfect. I also had you do my 5 year old who passed a few years ago, her name was Puttsi. She was my husbands baby and a rescue who was the sweetest ever. You captured her so perfectly and it was really special to share that with my husband. Thank you for the memories and kindness. Excellent communication, timeliness, and wonderfully packaged for delivery. I highly recommend everyone to get art from Katie!
