Lois is a self-taught artist, who specializes in painting people’s pets using her own techniques. In all of her paintings, her love for animals shines through, as she brings pets to life on canvas. She actually feels the pets as she paints them.

When you commission Lois, she will paint your pet from a photo you provide. You have the option of watching your painting come to life, as Lois will send you updates as it’s being created. 

The paintings are done on a 16″ X 20″ size canvas. She charges $200.00, plus shipping and tax, for her one-of-a-kind works of art. She donates a portion of her proceeds to help the animals.

To commission a pet portrait, contact Lois at or text her at 727-656-4008. Please tell her you found out about her on the Tail Life web-site.
