For the joy my portraits bring to others – This is why I love to paint pet portraits…

Duke-oil-Lisa Acciai

“Your painting was perfect. It made my mom cry! She always wanted a dog when she was a child but she grew up in post World War II Germany and they never had enough money for anything. So Duke was the dog she always wanted during childhood. It totally made her day.”

Thank you so much for creating the portrait of Coco! You went above and beyond my hopes for this gift, and I am grateful that I found your website.

Lisa, Thank you so much for the portraits of my 3 boys. I love them all, and will definitely be back for more.

Lisa W.

Thanks so much, Lisa. The portrait of Bosco was a huge hit and ranks among the best birthday presents ever!  You got Bosco’s likeness spot on, and the portrait is now prominently displayed in the study for us, and friends who knew him, to admire🙂

“I’m in love with this portrait it’s just everything and more that I was imagining!”


Steve and Jake - colored pencil portrait by Lisa Acciai

I absolutely love the picture you created of Steve and Jake.  You have a gift that I wish I had… The attention to detail from Jakes entroption surgery scar on his right eye to the white on the tip of Steve’s tail captured them perfectly!  This picture brings me such peace and joy!  My animals bring me joy as well (although not much peace at times…).

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!”


LAc Studio - Original Painting of Lucky (2) by Lisa Acciai

“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 Painting of Rambo and Melissa by Lisa Acciai

“For Valentine’s Day, my hubby gave me the most amazing portrait of me and my yorkie-poo (Rambo). I cannot put into words how amazing it is – you did the most incredible job! You captured Rambo’s sweet little expression so perfectly. Simply put – you nailed it. I hung the painting in my office and so many of my colleagues have commented on how ‘spot on’ it is. The painting is better than the picture itself!

I can’t thank you enough. This is a gift I will treasure for a lifetime. Matt got MAJOR brownie points for Valentine’s day this year.  Thank you again!”


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 Crash by Lisa Acciai

“I absolutely loved the portrait she did of my fiancés dog! She kept me updated throughout the progress and made sure that I was happy with the final product before I picked it up. I will definitely recommend her to anyone who would like a portrait of their pet.”


Lisa Acciai - original painting of Sasha

“Lisa I am stunned by it. I cried when I read the card and realized what was inside but it is so incredibly beautiful and Dave and I cannot believe how much it looks like her. I was worried she would look sick but she doesn’t, she looks serene and so beautiful. She has this little tuft of hair on her ear that always stands up and you even got that! Someone told me the other day that she will always be with me and it broke my heart but I know it’s true.”


Lisa Acciai - original pet portrait painting of Ripley

“Thank you so much for the amazing piece you made. The painting captures Ripley perfectly. We will cherish this forever!”
