Cathy’s Art Studio

Cathy’s Art Studio is focus on custom pet portraits both watercolor and oil painting, people portraits in oil painting only and watercolor greeting cards for all occasions.

I believe custom pet portraits will be well received by pet owners because they are able to get a personalized, one-of-a-kind piece of art, customized pieces creating a special connection between pet and owner. I understand that a pet is an important family member and the special relationship should be captured in a way to make our client happy.

Our art works can be the perfect gift idea for anybody. To view more samples of our paintings, please click More Paintings

For orders:

Customer place an order through email ( in the email attach a photo of the subject and preferred size and type of portrait (watercolor, oil painting).

I will review the photo, then reply with a quote on the time and cost. Then arrange the deposit payment (50%).

Generally, each watercolor portrait is finished within 14 days. Oil paintings can take between 3 to 4 weeks (it needs time to dry). For local client, we can meet up in person for pickup; if not, a shipping rate is required to be paid on top of the remaining balance.

I was given a watercolor of my dog as a gift and was so happy with it, and impressed by your talent. You really did an amazing job at capturing her escence and spirit. I have shared and recommended your work to my co-workers, and will do so with others who have four-legged friends.

Cathy recently did a watercolor of my friend's dog as a birthday gift. She did a fabulous job of capturing the beauty of my friend's Labrador. I would highly recommend working with Cathy, she is very professional and talented!

So happy with the portrait done of my cat, Callie. It has a ton of details and nuances. My favourite part are the eyes as they're beautifully done and really captures her often bewildered/alert face.

Cat did such an amazing job on painting my Chow Chow Dau Fu. The details were so precise and realistic. My friends and family all wanted their dogs painted once they saw the final product. I highly recommend using her services. Thanks so much!!

I love the water colour piece of my dog, Leo! The painting looks just like him and it really helps to brighten up my office. My coworkers also love the piece.
