How It Works


 When you’re ready to commission a portrait of a loved one, choose your favorite photo (or 3-5 if you can’t decide). Based on the photos and your preferences, we will work together to choose the design elements of the piece such as canvas dimensions, color schemes, and personalized details. At that point you will receive an invoice by email. Once payment is received, the work begins! Have questions? Ready to get started? Choose one of the buttons below to begin. I’m looking forward to hearing from you!


The commissioned piece I received from Kacin was beyond what I had hoped for.  Between her craft and strong attention to detail, she produced a quality piece of artwork that my wife and I will cherish forever.  I strongly encourage anyone who is reading this to consider commissioning a piece of your own.  You won’t regret it. 


I saw Kacin’s work in a Facebook group and knew she was the artist to paint my sweet Zoey. My request was a little more than that, though… I wanted Zoey painted as a Spirit Guide (like in the movie Coco).  Kacin ran with my request, and I couldn’t be more thrilled. She was so easy to work with and is super creative and talented.


Kacin’s work on this painting was truly incredible and so thoughtful! It was clear how much effort and love she put into this work and my friends absolutely loved it as an anniversary gift. She also worked so well with my very tight deadline, and I’m so appreciative of it!


Mozart’s portrait is fantastic! Thank you so much! I love the musical notes,, the wonderful colors,  the great tag, how perfectly you painted his eyes, and most of all I love how you’ve captured Mozart’s true essence.  You are an incredible artist! Thank you so much! 


I need to praise Kacin for this beautiful portrait she did for me. My grandparents passed away and she incorporated them in with my children. I wish I had filmed my reaction, it was so emotional. Thank you for giving me this little piece of my family ♥️


I couldn’t be more thrilled with the two pet portraits on canvas I’ve received. Kacin’s wonderful use of color really brings life to each piece. She depicted each pet’s individual personality though the paint, and the finished work looks perfect on my desk. 


I had a vague idea of a piece of art work that would showcase my best friends love of travel and reading and imagination. I sent Kacin a VERY rough sketch and the sentiment and the art she created is better than I could have ever imagined. Thank you so much!


I received a painting of our two pups, Annie and Molly, who we just adore.  My daughter had the painting done as our Christmas gift this year.  I was familiar with Kacin’s work as my daughter had a portrait done for her husband of his cat.  I fell in love with her work when he received the portrait of Katniss.  As I was opening my gift I quickly figured out what it was before I was able to see the canvas.  I can’t tell you how in love we are with the portrait of our girls!!  Kacin captured their personality so well and her work is simply amazing.  It is a very special piece of artwork that will be cherished for many years. 


Kacin you are amazing! 
I reached out to Kacin to see if she could paint my co-workers new pup onto a Christmas ornament.  She did an amazing job – it looked exactly like the picture I sent her and I’m so excited to gift to my co-worker next week.  The ornament was so good that my family all agreed we needed to order a 2nd ornament, this time of our own fur baby.  It arrived today and is already hanging on our tree.  These ornaments will be cherished for many years to come 🙂
