Custom Pet Portraits and Art Prints by Svetlana Novikova
What some of my customers say...
"...It's just perfect, thank you! ...You have captured what we wanted perfectly and we thank
you deeply for your contribution to our cause..." - (Deborah Boies, Co-Founder PilotsNPaws, SC)
"....Maybe you've considered your neighbour's kid's hamster a muse? If not, it's obviously because
you have yet to encounter Svetlana Novikova's masterpiece: IMPASTO HAMSTER PAINTING #1.
I could barely believe my eyes at how elegant and refined this little guy could look. Yes, this
hamser is something special, but then again, Novikova could make dried paint look interesting.
(Wait, that's what she does)... " - (Austin Woman Magazine, 2010)
"...I've never seen anything like this, your work is mystical and the way you took my ideas
into consideration and incorporated into your colors and your own artist's imagination
is truly "real" and very moving. With thanks from my heart, recognition and respect
for your incredible talent.." - (Beth M. New York, NY)
"...I love it, thank you! You have an amazing ability to capture my boys..." (Frances F. Austin, TX)

CUSTOM PAINTED PET PORTRAITS
As animal lover, I love creating one of a kind eye-catching emotional Pet portraits. Whether it's a cat, dog, horse, lizard, rabbit, or bird, etc., when working on the custom portrait, I listen to your specific requests and get information about your pet to get a good feel of your pet's personality.
I've been painting animals professionally for over 20 years. My artwork can be found in thousands private collections worldwide. My customers often comment on how live and soulful their pets look in the paintings.
Classically trained in Russia, I combine traditional and modern techniques and my unique color method to capture a heart and unique personality of your cherished pet. I work with acrylics, watercolors, and dry media. Portraits can be done in a realistic style, impressionistic, expressionistic style, or combination.
These portraits are ideal gifts or a lasting commemorative of a pet who is sadly missed.

HOW TO ORDER, PROCESS, ETC
Please send me a clear crisp photo of your pet(s) and let me know of any specific ideas and requests. I'll work with you to implement your ideas into the painting, but the final creative decision will be left up to me.
I usually require 1/2 deposit to start the painting process. Payment can be made by Paypal, Credit card, or check. I can email you a rough idea draft before I start the actual painting to get your OK for a general direction.
The painting process can take up to 2-16 weeks depending on the painting size, style, and my schedule. When I am done with the painting, I will email you the image for your approval and to see if any adjustments are needed.
(Any adjustments and changes outside of agreed scope of work will accrue additional fees). When you are satisfied with the final work, the remainder of the balance is paid, and then I package and mail your painting.
I retain all copyrights to the artwork.
