LAc Studio Pet Portraits in Pencil and Paint by Lisa Acciai2018-02-18T12:30:18+00:00

Hi there,

I’m Lisa, an Artist and I create custom pet portraits in pencil and paint for pet people. Our pets are only with us for a short time, and my goal is to create a lasting keepsake and tribute for you of your cherished pet. I paint in a realistic manner to capture the essence of your pet and the joy in their eyes, and attempt to immortalize that special bond between the two of you. Learn how easy it is to commission your pets portrait here and if you’d like to know more about me, you can read more here.

Draco with his portrait by Lisa Acciai
“I’m in love with this portrait it’s just everything and more that I was imagining!”
“Lisa, I love the portrait and I couldn’t wait to give it to Bob and he was so surprised! A big thank you to you for your beautiful work. You are very talented to capture Lucky’s personality without even meeting him!”
LAc Studio - Original Paintings by Lisa Acciai
“When I learned Lisa was doing pet portraits I was very excited to have them done of my two cats and two dogs. The process was amazing from start to finish. I sent Lisa a few pictures. She helped me see which ones worked best for composition and color. She coordinated the background colors so the four look great hanging together. Once she began painting she sent me messages of the works in progress. Lisa has a wonderful attention for detail. When she wasn’t sure of a certain shade of color for one pet’s eyes she asked me to send more pictures so she could get it perfect– and she did! When she brought the paintings to me I felt like she captured the image and essence of each pet and I will always cherish these portraits!”
LAc Studio - Original Painting of Dewey by Lisa Acciai
“The hardest part of the process was getting my Mom’s dog, Dewey, to sit still long enough for me to get a decent picture that Lisa could use! She combined the best elements of all of those pictures and created the most masterful portrait of my Mom’s well-loved, totally spoiled, high energy mutt, so much so that my Mom burst into tears the moment she opened it and said, “This is the best present anyone has every given me.” She immediately removed an expensive painting from the wall that had hung in her foyer for 45 years and replaced it with Dewey’s portrait and draws every visitor’s attention to it as they come in. My siblings basically threw in the towel on getting a decent Christmas gift for my Mom once they saw Lisa’s painting. They knew nothing they got, no matter what the cost, would match her reaction to that portrait!”
