Portraits of People

From complex settings, to simple head portraits, Leah’s knowledge of anatomy and form will create a highly realistic painting that will be treasured.

The “Classic” Difference:  Leah paints in the time-tested techniques of the Old Masters of the Renaissance, using only high quality, lasting materials, and each portrait is completed to the clients satisfaction. She strives to capture the personality of your pet or loved one.

Some artists produce digital “Paintings” which aren’t long-lasting, and don’t have the depth of a real oil painting. The beauty, details, and quality of Leah’s portraits is apparent. Compare close-ups of her work with other pet portraits, and you will be convinced!

About Commissions:
“If you’re not sure what you want, that’s fine. Send me photos of your pet or loved one, and I can make suggestions. If you have a favorite photo, I will work from that one if possible. My goal is to provide the best possible portrait and level of service for all of my clients, and I offer portrait options to suit most budgets.”
–Leah Knecht, sole artist and owner of Classic Pet Portraits

About My Customer Service: From a client: “ I just typed in google, “custom canvas paintings” and looked through a few, emailed a few and asked a few questions but by far, your service has been the best and easiest.“ — Bob
