Browse through my slate paintings of animals to see how I can do a pet portrait on slate, slate welcome signs with animals, and pet memorials as well as trophies and awards for pet shows.

  I would be happy to paint a portrait of your pet. Just email me a photo (or photos) of your pet or send me a photo in the mail.  Remember, the better the quality of photo,  the more I will be able to get a true likeness of your pet for a unique slate painting of your pet! 

Prices depend on the difficulty of the painting as well as the size and how many animals are in the painting. Prices start at $30.00 for one in the general size of about 7x10.

Welcome signs with animals

Whether you want a portrait of your pet on a Welcome sign or any "generic' animal, I can do do a welcome slate with animals for you!  Your Animal welcome sign can be personalized with the family name or address number at no extra cost.










Pet portraits

 Slate pet portraits can be done with a single animal or with multiples.


Have a plain background on your pet portrait, or a one just for the holidays!

Have your pet portrait done with outdoor scenery or the look of a blanket behind your animal.








The owner of Mickey wanted His pet portrait done in his favorite spot - up the tree!



Poor little Weege!  This  cat 's a prime example of a cat with 9 lives. His right leg was cut off in an accident and the other was paralyzed so it stuck out straight. I was asked to do this slate as a gift for his owner.  This is his favorite spot  where he propped himself up in his own special chair to look out the window.  This pet portrait was done with photos not only of the cat, but the window and chair too so that I could get a rendering of the scene as close as possible to the real thing.

Do you want a special pet portrait with the scenery of your pet's special place to sit?  Just email some photos and I'll take care of the rest!

Pet Memorials

I can create a slate pet memorial for a special  cherished friend who has passed on. Your pet memorial can be mounted on a stake at the burial site. All slates are coated with exterior varnish .

This slate is a portrait of my "grand puppy" who only lived for a year. He had a bad heart.

 I cut this  pet memorial slate  in the shape of a cross, then my husband mounted it on a wooden stake.  In addition to the paw prints, name,   date of birth and death, I put this little saying " Your paw prints will forever be on our hearts" .  He is sadly missed.   If you would like a pet, I can cut the slate any shape you would like and put what ever saying you would like on your pet's memorial.

Frosty loved the outdoors and his owners wanted to have a pet memorial to put in

a flower garden.

Click onto Cheyenne's photo to see the words that the owners wanted painted on this Pet Memorial.   He was so pleased with the slate that he phoned me! I love hearing back from my customers , it gives me much satisfaction knowing how my pet memorials have bought a smile to someone who is mourning their pet.  If you have an idea for a design for your pet memorial, please just give me the idea and I'll design one just for you!


Animal Sayings

I can do your pet or any "generic " pet with your favorite pet saying.  I have a lot of sayings on file if you want to express something but not quite sure how to say it,  just let me know and I'll see what I can come up with!

This dog saying was intended to keep the owners of people's dogs from using this customer's flower beds as an outhouse!





The owner of this dog has a good time entertaining the neighborhood dogs.  She wanted this slate done to welcome her little doggie friends for "Yappy Hour"!
