Dogs, cats, birds or wild animals with or without their owners
In oil or soft pastel
There is no finer piece of art to hang on a wall than a portrait of your beloved pet, and Cassidy J. Alexander has the years of experience and artistry to create it for you. A master portrait artist who is unabashedly a dog and cat lover, she carefully hand-creates the likenesses in oil or pastel to each customer’s specifications and satisfaction.
Cassidy’s pet portraits are startlingly realistic but with an artist’s touch, so that the painting is inevitably better than the photograph. Every marking, every turn of the ears, even the softness of the fur right down to the whiskers, is rendered faithfully so that you know immediately this is your dog or cat. She is particularly skilled with the eyes, as no matter how flat they may look in the original photo, she will add shine and sharpness until the real personality of the animal comes through. Ms. Alexander’s pet portraits make superb gifts.
Because of the restless nature of animals, the client must provide the photographs (which will be returned). Snapshots are fine. A pet may be reproduced in oil on canvas or in soft pastel – a permanent medium that will not crack, fade, yellow or peel. With proper framing, your custom work of art will maintain its vibrancy for decades to come. Framing is available from the artist for an extra charge, if the painting is picked up at her studio in Illinois.
I didn’t think I would want a portrait of my dog. Now I do. It’s absolutely wonderful!

Just a note to say how I loved the portrait of my cat ‘Friskee.’ My husband had it done for my birthday. I just love it! You captured her look so well….

Thanks so much for the beautiful picture of Austin. It looks so much like him that when I feel lonely, I just look at this picture. I’m so glad I had you do this. I can actually see his soul in his eyes.
Hello Cassidy, Oh my goodness, it's PERFECT! I love it! Thank you so much for a wonderful portrait.

Thank you very much for the terrific job you did on the painting of Francis and ChooChoo. Everyone who views the painting is astonished at the quality of your work, as I am...

We would give you the world if it were ours to give. We lost our “Blues” in January and you gave her back to us. Your portrait is so life-like we feel we could just reach out and touch her. We hurt so much and when we received the portrait, well you’ll never know how happy you made us. You are a very special person!

I just wanted to thank you again for the fantastic job you did on my dog’s (Sir Mike) portrait. Your talent has precisely captured his look and character in this portrait.
- D. Lounang
The portrait is absolutely fabulous. You truly captured not only the physical features of our Norwich, “Mattie”, but also her spirit and character. When I opened it, I started to cry, it was so magnificent!
- M. Rushford
Thank you so much for the wonderful job you did on the portrait of Nigel. It is about life-size and looks so much like him that I get the urge to feed him!
- L. Taylor
Just thought I would share - the portrait of Satchel was a big hit! Thanks again.
- Rick Aaron

You have captured our “Norman” perfectly. The picture is stunning and I thank you for your talent and time.

It’s hard to express in words how special our pet is to us. We were amazed how you captured his “look” without even knowing or seeing him in person. I am not one to get teary-eyed over things. But when I realized what this gift was, all I could do was cry…..This portrait will be cherished all our lives…

We can see God’s work in your hands and His work shows in your heart.
