Pet Memorial Portraits
The loss of a pet is heart wrenching. You often find yourself looking around for that furry friend who is no longer there.
Whether your pet memorial portrait is for yourself, family members, or a friend, I would be honored to create your animal’s likeness in fabric.
The creation process begins with your clear photograph, then you make format decisions. I will send you photos of each step in the process for you to suggest tweaking along the way. You continue to review drafts until you give a stamp of approval. I then ship your pet portrait.
The Healing Power of a Pet Memorial Portrait
Your participation in the decisions regarding the creation of your memorial piece (such as background color and providing feedback to the drafts) allows for a healing process. Sharing memories and your pet’s personality assists me to infuse his or her personality into the final fabric portrait. I have been able to capture the spirits of animals, the “old gentle soul” to the “bouncer,” through the fabric and threads.
Many customers report that they cry or have tears well up as they view the photos I sent them, especially as the portrait progresses. It is my belief that this is healthy. I consider myself honored to be a part of the healing process for you or a friend.
I think it looks awesome and I shared it with her daughter and she thinks the same thing. We think her mom is going to love it!
I saw Shiloh’s picture there in your Look-Book. It made me cry as I lost him this past year. I am so grateful that I have the wall-hanging in my living room. Each time I look at it, I think of him. Thank you so much.
Oh Martha, it’s PERFECT! This is going to be one of those gifts that has everyone in tears. I’m tearing up right now thinking about the joy it will bring my parents! Thank you.
