Stephanie's work is beyond awesome! She is so talented at what she does and was so 'spot on' in capturing the personalities of the two dogs I asked her to paint. She took time to ask questions, discuss certain aspects of the painting, get their features right, etc. During the entire process she was also very collaborative and included me on every step of her process. This painting was special gift for special friends of mine. When they opened the gift, they couldn't believe that one of their photos was seamlessly translated into the most beautiful painting...a real tribute to their dogs. They put it up on their wall right away and now, everyday, they can see their happy and relaxed dogs in the painting. Honestly, the painting puts a warm smile on the face of anyone who knows those dogs. My friends say it was the BEST GIFT they have EVER received and are so appreciative of Stephanie for going above and beyond to bring her talent into our lives! - Amie K.
I just came home from the surprise birthday party for my friend for which you did the portrait of her two dogs. I had been home about 15 minutes when the phone rang and it was her saying: "This is amazing, one of the best gifts I have ever received! Thank you!"
Thanks Stephanie for another amazing gift! - Yehuda C.
We absolutely love the painting of our dog, Lucy. She absolutely captured our pet's expression and gave us something that is both true to life and artistically arresting. I 100% recommend. -Lisa H.
Stephanie's work brought so much joy to my aunt and uncle. Their dog is their baby, and they were moved to tears when I presented to them the perfect gift of the painting Stephanie created. She took a photograph I forwarded to her, then listened to what I described of my aunt & uncle and their favorite things and spots, and painted the perfect image of doggie in front of Wrigley Field!!! My thrill at seeing her work was only topped by seeing my beloved aunt & uncle's reaction. They said that no one's ever done anything that nice and thoughtful and beautiful for them. What a perfect gift for an animal lover.... -Michelle D.
4 Paws Portraits/Stephanie's work is amazing! I surprised my husband with a portrait of our pup. Intended for Valentine's Day, but I just could NOT wait two more weeks to give it to him. LOVE IT! Stephanie is so easy to work with throughout the entire process and collaborates with you on how to truly capture the spirit of your favorite four-legged friend. (She even emailed photos of the portrait's progress, step-by-step.) I highly recommend 4 Paws Portraits! -Melissa D.
I am a Real Estate Agent and I have given gift cards as closing gifts to two of my clients. They both LOVED it! Thoughtful, meaningful and special gift. Nice Job! - Scott F.
I received a portrait of my dog Leo as a surprise gift. I was so moved and touched once I saw Leo and how Stephanie captured his personality on canvas. Her unique perspective and ability blew me away--she is truly talented. Honestly, one of the best gifts I've ever received! Beautiful, just beautiful! -Anna C.
I love it! Perfect. Thank you for your creativity and skill. Your style touches my spirit. - Dorothy M.
When my dog, Max, was killed in August I didn't think I would get over the loss. Then I found this site and this wonderful artist. She captured the spirit of Max on canvas with that twinkle in his eyes. It puts a smile on my face now when I look at the painting. I would highly recommend 4 Paws Portraits to capture that look on your pet's face that brings a smile to yours. -Peggy M.
