Traditional Pet PORTRAITS.

Everybody loves their furry friends. How great to have them depicted in a timeless portrait to keep forever!

Imagine your pet on paper full of personality and looking gorgeous. Alternatively, in times of loss, a beautiful pet memorial portrait means you will have something to treasure for always.

I work from your photos using top quality materials to produce your beautiful Red Balloon pet portrait. All that is required are a few good quality photos and your 50% deposit to secure your commission slot. It’s easy! I try to keep in touch during the process from time to time too, so you aren’t kept in the dark. I like to be sure that I have captured your pet’s personality well, so your input is invaluable.

Thank you so much to Kirsty for my memorial portrait of Arnie, she has captured him beautifully and he’s just as I remember him! Pets are family, he was my best friend for so long and now I have his portrait to remember him by. Kirsty has been brilliant, bouncing emails back and forth and you receive a draft prior to the final version. Excellent customer service and I would highly recommend Red Balloon Illustrations! Thank you so much!

Kirsty created a beautiful portrait of my dog for my partner’s 30th birthday. She sent me images and kept me posted leading up to its completion which was great. The final picture is stunning and spot on! Amazing x.
