Thank you for visiting my page, Everlasting Pet Portraits. I appreciate your interest and I hope you enjoy my work. I’m Sarah Elena, a pet portrait artist specializing in custom, original, and detailed, lifelike pet portraits starring your pets, painted from your favorite photographs.
Two of my greatest passions in life are animals and art. I dearly love animals, and it is such a joy watching a beloved pet come to life through my artwork. Personally, I’ve owned pets my whole life, and currently share my home and life with two horses and two dogs, as well as my husband Alan and our darling daughter Ella.
I’ve drawn and painted for pleasure for as long as I can remember. I was always the child who was drawing things in droplets of water, in steam on windows, in the margins of my notebooks, and on placemats at restaurants. Who am I kidding, even as an adult I still do the same…haha Family and friends always encouraged me to do more with my artwork, and these hopes came to be a reality when I was privileged to paint my first commissioned pet portrait.
Although I consider myself mostly a self-taught artist, I do have a college minor in art studio from Humboldt State University, and I also was fortunate enough to apprentice with Jan Sousa, a watercolor artist from Mt. Shasta, CA, for several months in high school.
Enjoy your visit to my site and I look forward to hearing from you! Please feel free to contact me at any time, and come back often as new portraits and additional information will be added frequently.
