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.

"I want to thank you so much for my portrait present. I'm not sure words can adequately describe the feelings I have when I look at my beautiful "Max". As I write this I am choking back tears - but it brings back such sweet memories. After 13 years with Max, we had to have him put to sleep on the same day that I brought my baby boy Matthew home from the hospital. With so much energy focused on a new baby, it felt like I never had the opportunity to give Max the honor he deserved. That is no longer the case. Todd perfectly captured his personality - the way Max would look at me with his mournful, penetrating eyes. It's been 7 years since he died but opening my Christmas present was like seeing Max again. I can't express how wonderful it is! Max has always had a place in my heart, but thanks to you, he is now with our family forever. Thank you so very much!" — Dawn Wilson, Hickory, North Carolina
