Hello from the Artist!
My name is CC and I'm an artist with a passion for dogs and fine art. Scottie and Casie are my two very precious furbabies (aka my two little weasels). It's amazing how much they've changed my life in ways unimaginable.
One day, they really spoke to me with those big puppy dog eyes. I became so deeply inspired by them that I decided to combine my love for dogs and fine art and founded scottieandcasie.com in 2016.
I truly believe that fine art and dogs make people very very very happy. Seeing a commissioned scottieandcasie painting in person can be very moving - feelings of love, sentiments, memories, and emotions that you cannot describe.
You'll feel emotions of pleasure and joy you won't get from our day-to-day pixelated world, you'll be momentarily removed from reality and be in a place of calmness and relaxation, and (eventually) you'll come back refreshed and appreciating all the little things in life again.
I love how art positively impacts our society, our communities and our homes. It is incredibly rewarding for me to bring great happiness to pet owners around the world through the works of my art.
Precision, Details, and Quality that Impress
I paint in the style of contemporary realism and love to focus on details and colours in the eyes. My pet portrait paintings are done with a combination of watercolour paints and coloured pencils.
I take great pride in using the highest artist-grade quality media. This is very important because just like our love for our pets, I want my paintings to last for a lifetime and more.
Regular paints have a tendency to fade over time. The pigments in the artist-quality paints I use have superior lightfastness ratings that resist change in appearance over time and light exposure.
To make sure your paintings last forever, I paint on artist-grade paper that is chlorine and acid-free; this is essentially the equivalent of museum archival grade paper.
Pet Portrait Paintings
We understand that pets are truly our best friends, holding a very very special place in our hearts. From the time they join our families as puppies to the time when they've moved on and crossed the rainbow bridge, their little souls are with us furever.
Using your favourite photos as references, we put a lot of love, care and attention into each unique hand-painted portrait.
Because our portraits are customized to you, they will bring life to any room in your home, become conversation pieces, and make memorable gifts for your loved ones. We know that you'll love it!
Certificate of Authenticity
Each original scottieandcasie painting comes with a signed Certificate of Authenticity verifying the authenticity and details of the original artwork. Included are also tips to ensure the longevity of the artwork.
Scottie, Casie, and I are super excited to learn about you and your pet to create a beautiful painting for you and your loved ones.
