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.
