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.
“Holly`s portrait was a big success with my whole family. It was such a surprise to my granddaughters, and they loved it. I really appreciate Todd helping me get it in the frame. I will be happy to recommend Todd to any of my animal-loving friends. I think there is no better way to preserve happy memories than through a portrait that will be with us forever.” — Glenda K, Winston Salem, North Carolina

“Thank you so much for this wonderful memorial portrait of our beloved Fiona. She was a rescue cat, part Siamese and the color of butterscotch. With care and patience she grew into a wonderful companion who never wanted to be left. We would find her in the suitcase or packing box and would have to hide our suitcases if going on a trip. Thank you for capturing her in one of her favorite places, all snuggled up in bubble wrap.” — K.W., Atlanta, Georgia

WE LOVE IT!!!!!. My husband and I love her face and we especially love the fact that she looks so real. Todd has done a wonderful job. Lola belongs to my nephew and he treats her like his own child. I know he will love the portrait. It is so good, it is hard to believe it is a painting and not a photo. Thank you so much again for your wonderful work. I sent it to my sister (Buster's mom) and she loved it too. She said it was just perfect!!!! — Bonnie Howard, Riverside, CA
