Custom Pet Portraits and Art Prints by Svetlana Novikova
"...It's just perfect, thank you! ...You have captured what we wanted perfectly and we thank
you deeply for your contribution to our cause..." - (Deborah Boies, Co-Founder PilotsNPaws, SC)
"....Maybe you've considered your neighbour's kid's hamster a muse? If not, it's obviously because
you have yet to encounter Svetlana Novikova's masterpiece: IMPASTO HAMSTER PAINTING #1.
I could barely believe my eyes at how elegant and refined this little guy could look. Yes, this
hamser is something special, but then again, Novikova could make dried paint look interesting.

CUSTOM PET PORTRAITS start at $600
All animals are awesome! As animal lover, I love creating one of a kind eye-catching emotional Pet portraits. Whether it's a cat, dog, horse, lizard, rabbit, or bird, etc., when working on the custom portrait, I listen to your specific requests and get information about your pet to get a good feel of your pet's personality.
I've been painting animals professionally for over 20 years. My artwork can be found in thousands private collections worldide. My customers often comment on how live and soulful their pets look in the paintings.
Classically trained in Russia, I combine traditional and modern techniques and my unique color method to capture a heart and unique personality of your cherished pet. I work with acrylics, watercolors, and dry media. Portraits can be done in a realistic style, impressionistic, expressionistic style, or combination.
These portraits are ideal gifts or a lasting commemorative of a pet who is sadly missed.
I work from photos mainly. Custom painting times depends on the project, size. I retain full copyrights to my artworks. Before starting a project, I require 50% non-refundable deposit, the remaining balance is due upon completion of the painting.
Please contact me for more information. Looking forward to hearing from you!
