Welcome to Portraits by ShawnaLee! I am a New England Portrait artist specializing in highly detailed and realistic portraiture of pets, horses and people. I love to draw and paint and sharing my work with others and have been doing so for over 29 years!  You can be assured that your portrait will come out spectacular!    I also love teaching art and offer numerous art classes throughout the year!  Please feel free to drop me an email to ask any questions that you may have.   Thank you!
The painting above is of the adorable “Molly” shown here with her very own Oil Painting!  The background shows a subtle Christmas tree with berries.  I met Molly at the Danbury Animal Welfare Society dog walk along with her “fur-sibling”  “Frodo” shown below!
My work is entirely done by hand from your references combined with your shared insights of your pet.  I use authentic artist materials and share the process with you on my artist facebook page – unless, of course, it will ruin the surprise you are planning!  Visit Portraits by ShawnaLee to see how my portraits are created!   Send me your photos today! artist@shawnalee.com
