Introduction: Hi, I'm Jenna! I'm an illustrator with most of my work centering around nature and animals. I do pet portraiture of all kinds (cats, dogs, birds, horses, lizards, you name it!), as well as family portraits. If you are thinking about hiring me, please provide a detailed description of the portrait or illustration that you would like - that will allow me to give you a good estimate up front. My pricing is based on the size of the piece, the number of subjects, any background details, and the medium. A 9x12" ink portrait of 1 subject, for example, is generally about $100, while a 16x20" painting of the same subject will be around $250, and a 16x20" painting of 2 or more subjects will be $300 or more. I'm somewhat flexible, but if these prices are dramatically out of your range, I may not be the artist for you. Aside from portraiture, I do a lot of work using speech balloons - either acrylic paintings on wood or copic marker drawings where the subject is telling the viewer something supportive or validating. Sometimes there are swears, because sometimes life calls for swears. Most of the work I do on my own time in my sketchbook is comic book inspired in style, and while I don't often get commissioned for it, it is probably my favorite way to draw! Give me your complicated backgrounds and OCs! I'm super down!

Jenna has done several illustrations for us. She is a talented artist and obviously loves her work. Her turnaround time is very reasonable!

Best gift in a long time! My brother in law and his wife love their dog more than anything. We asked to turn their favorite photo of the three of them into an illustration. Not only was is gorgeous, but the process was easy and fun. They were super surprised and I was delighted.

Thank you, Dina! That portrait is still one of my very favorites. I'm so glad you commissioned it and that you and the recipients liked how it came out.

Jenna created beautiful art from one of my favorite photos of my mom. She was consultative, was receptive to some light feedback on the first proof, and I’m thrilled with the final result. I ordered 5 prints, framed them, and they will be gifts for my family for the holidays.

Thank you, Emily! Yours has definitely been one of my more challenging pieces of late, and I've so appreciated your feedback and patience. I hope that everyone loves them!

Jenna is a fantastic artist, her work consistently blows me away. The first time I commissioned a portrait from Jenna was for a colleague's retirement party. The party planner thought it would be really meaningful if we presented our colleague with a portrait of her late father, who she lost when she was young and didn't have many pictures of him left. I sent Jenna one of those photos (a photo of a photo really, and not a very big one) and she came back promptly with this beautiful, poetic portrait that we framed and unveiled at the party. To say it was an emotional moment is the understatement of the year, and my colleague was really moved. She has it hanging up in her home now, and treasures it. (I sent Jenna a very rambling and emotional thank you message) The second time I commissioned Jenna was for an anniversary gift for my boyfriend. She drew a color portrait from a photo of the two of us early on in our relationship. It was perfect, she really captured every detail, and it makes me happy every time I see it. She's just great, okay? Hire her.

Aw, Maggie, thank you! That memorial portrait was one of my first as a working artist (if not the first), and while I know I've improved a lot since then, I'm still so proud of it, and the reaction from the recipient (as told to me by you) meant so much to me. I've also always been really happy with how the anniversary gift portrait came out - it's one of my favorites, and I'm so glad it makes you happy. <3

A phenomenal artist. I had her do pet portraits for my entire family. Not a dry eye in the house when I handed them out for holiday gifts last year. Worth every penny (and then some).

Thank you, Caitlin! It's always nice to get to do portraits of pets I know or knew. All your family's pups were so fun to work on.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Pricing depends on what you want! Size, number of people or animals in the picture, how complicated the background is, etc. My smallest portraits (5.5x8.5"), with simple or no background and one person or pet, are generally $40. My largest portraits (9x12"), with two people or animals, and a complicated background, would be $175. I'm always willing to go smaller or larger or do something different if what you're looking for is different from my usual!

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    When someone contacts me for a portrait or illustration, I will ask for details of what they want drawn/painted, and any reference pictures they can provide if there is a specific person, pet, home, or otherwise that they'd like me to draw. Then I get to work! I usually send a picture of my rough pencil sketch for the client's approval before I ink. Once it has been inked and/or colored, it is much more difficult to make changes, so I ask that clients let me know at this point if there is something they would like changed. Once the sketch has been approved, I get to work finishing it up, and contact the client when it is complete, or if there are any delays or other issues.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I actually am almost entirely self-taught as a visual artist!
