"This was one of the best gifts I have ever given to my parents - Michele did an outstanding job and I would highly recommend her. We actually tasked her with a very difficult task of painting 6 dogs, in a very specific location, with limited photos. She took great time to gather information on all the doggies, and did an unbelievable job! I can't express how enough how much our entire family loved the beautiful portrait she created for us, and it is something we are going to cherish for a long time!"

"I have been looking to have a portrait done for a year for my husband of our girl who passed away. I was not 100% sure what I wanted but knew I would when I saw it. I found it with Michel at Pet Portrait Fun. I just loved how Michele captured each dog personality and how fun the pictures were.
I immediately reach out to Michele. I was not sure what I wanted but Michele was amazing to work with. She helped me by learning about my girl and as we talked, I decided to paint all four of my bulldogs in one portrait with a pool party theme using pictures from our previous home. I took the time to describe the personalities of each dog as this is what I loved about her portraits.
The result was totally amazing. I was so blown away by the initial sketched design. She was very open to make some minor modification and I could not wait to see the result.
Well, the result was truly amazing. They way she captured each dog’s personality, the faces included the lines and wrinkles which made them look alive and real. She incorporated the details of our pool area. It truly was a priceless master piece to us. When my husband opened the gift at Christmas, he said “Best Gift Ever”.
Little did I know how this piece became even more special as one of boy’s passed away not long after this was painted. To see this picture and feel our babies are sitting with us is truly amazing. Words can’t capture the priceless work she did for my husband and I and this is our most treasured artwork of many pieces we own.
I highly recommend Michele and let here create your amazing memory as she did for us."

Dog lovers rejoice! I attended my first Pet Portrait Fun session last night at Boris & Horton and it definitely won't be my last. Michele is incredibly talented, super friendly, and very attentive to her guests' questions. This last part was especially important as most of us were either first-time watercolor painters or hadn't touched a brush since the high school days. Whether you are an active pet parent or canine painting for a loved one (mine is a surprise gift to my sister memorializing her recently deceased min pin and one guest said he'd do one of his parents' dog to surprise them with for his next session) you are sure to have an enjoyable and meaningful experience. Thank you Michele for the amazing Pet Portrait Fun experience!
Michele is amazing at what she does and embraces you to paint any way and any how you feel comfortable! If you need some tips she is more than happy to help but really lets you go at your own pace and let's you foster your own creativity. We all love our pets so we feel a special need to make our pet portrait perfect, just like our pet! Michele talks you through it and encourages your creative mind. Have fun with friends, making it a party with food and/or drinks, or make it intimate/personal with a loved one. There's no wrong way to do this and I guarantee it's going to always be fun!
Silvia Wong*****Michele made the experience fun and enjoyable for both humans and pups! Drawing and water coloring seemed intimating but turns out everyone is an artist. Even my husband walked out with a great piece. Highly recommended!
"SO ecstatic to gift this"
"She was absolutely wonderful
to work with made sure that I
was completely happy with the
painting before completion. ..."
