Capture your memories with an endearing custom portrait painted by renowned North Carolina portrait artist Todd Belcher, specializing in custom painted pet portraits.
Todd is known for his colorful, stylistic interpretations and his ability to create a composite portrait from multiple photographs. He draws and paints every custom portrait by hand, utilizing his exceptional artistic gift to convey the unique spirit and likeness of his subjects.
You can commission a portrait of your beloved pet or a special child, family member or friend, and Todd will create a custom portrait from your photographs. You can also commission a pencil or painted portrait from multiple photos, and Todd will place all the subjects together in one work of original custom portrait art.
This is unique because it can create a cherished portrait of your relatives or ancestors, placing them together even if they are not in the same original photograph. Todd also accepts commissions for custom pencil and painted portraits of architecture, including homes and churches.
“The portraits that you painted of my beloved Mini Schnauzers are some of my most favorite and prized possessions. I'll have them and love them forever. You both were so professional and easy to work with. You made me feel very important and that I was a valued client. It was a smooth and easy process to let you know what I was interested in, you listened and delivered exactly what I had in mind only better!
My sincere thanks for the experience.”
— Robin Clark and Cody and Cassidy Clark, Greensboro, North Carolina

"Dear Todd, I received the portrait yesterday and am very pleased with it. Spikey was truly a remarkable dog and was the great love of my life. He was rescued from the mean streets of New Orleans and brought nothing but pure joy to me everyday. It’s hard to believe that he has been gone for six years. The portrait brought back a lot of emotions and I will admit to having a good cry, but I try to tell myself how lucky I was to have known and loved such an incredible dog. I now have a little cocker mix, Susie May who is difficult to photograph, but if I get a good one, I want you to paint her too. Thanks again for a job well done." — Karen Vincent, New Orleans, LA
