I offer a variety of options for framing your pet portrait painting.

This is an important part of the consultation process that I have with any one who commissions me to create a painting of their dog, cat or horse as the price differs between options.

  • Frame pricing varies according to frame style and materials desired*

  • Frames start at $100 for a simple wood frame.

  * (a frame is included in the price of my 2.5" x 3.5" acrylic and ink portraits)

On this page you'll find samples of the different framing options I offer to enhance the portrait of your fur kiddo in a very special way!

Scroll down to see all of the options. I know you'll find something to suit your taste.

 Option one 

My portraits on canvas don't require framing!

I use canvas with 1 1/2" wide sides (called gallery wrapped canvas)

The sides are painted, so the portrait can be hung without a frame.  They can also stand on a bookcase, table or mantlepiece. 

Perfect for people who have limited wall space, or renters who cannot hammer nails or picture hangers into walls.

 Option TWO 

If a frame is desired

Often I paint design elements on the sides of the canvas which are meant to be seen. A local artisan framer hand makes these custom makes frames for me where the portrait is mounted on top of (instead of under) the frame.  These frames come standard in black or dark brown stain, but I can paint them any color desired - even metallic!

 Option three 

My favorite!

My speciality is to have the frame become a part of the artwork.  It's a further extension of my trademark border designs.   It seems to me such a waste to not use the frame's surface!  I can paint the frame with elements that tell the pet's or horse's story or icons of objects the animal loves - e.g. tennis balls, play toys, or a design that compliments the portrait.  This is where the painting being mounted on top of the frame works really well.

 Option four 

Traditional framing is also available for both style of portraits I create

My Ink & Acrylic pet portraits on fine art paper must be framed under glass, to protect the portrait.

My pet paintings in Acrylic on Canvas can also be traditionally framed.

can arrange to have a traditional custom frame made for your portrait using a professional framer I work with here in Scottsdale, Arizona.

They provide a high standard of quality framing at reasonable prices.

They can create a perfect frame for the portrait, in hundreds of moldings, and color, including floater frames and shadowboxes.
