Heather and Pet Love Originals were featured on the Daytime Toronto show Tuesday March 15th, on Rogers cable channel 10.

Having pets with me all my life has given me a special affinity for animals. My interest in art also started when I was very young. The combination of these two loves is a natural evolution for my artistic career.

I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Waterloo and I have continued to study privately ever since. Working from photographs of your pets I can create a unique and treasured work of art that will help to keep the memories of your loyal friends alive forever.

Your pet portrait will be created with only the highest quality materials using pastels, charcoal or acrylics. I will provide you with a complete quote for your commissioned work once I know the details of your request.

Pet portraits are one of a kind treasures that make a terrific gift for pet lovers of all kinds. Here are some comments from my clients:

I just received the painting of Alex and Ebony. I was in shock. There was my two beautiful black labs as if they were still alive."
- Y. Simoneau, Montreal
When we received the pet portraits of Mollie and Dusty, it warmed our hearts. You managed to capture not only their appearances but their very special characters, they will be with us always... Thank you.
- B. Richards, Muskoka
