Rochester, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/20/2015 -- Lisa Marie of Artistry by Lisa Marie has expanded her fine art portrait studio to include a beautiful new store on Etsy featuring dog and cat artwork. While there are many aspiring artists online, this Esty shop in conjunction with the beautiful pencil portraits will quickly become the go-to place for pet lovers and art followers.
"I've been drawing professionally for several years now and have to say, this is an exciting leap forward," exclaimed Lisa Marie. "The compelling dog and cat drawings alone will help attract new viewers. Then there are the custom pet portraits that bring the store to an entirely new level. I'm proud of this shop and the marvelous service it provides."
Typically portrait artists work only within their local community, with professional fine art pet portraits being few and far between. Then Artistry by Lisa Marie came along and changed everything, expanded beyond her Rochester, NY location and made her pencil drawings available everywhere.
"All it takes is a photo," said Lisa Marie. "If you send me a picture of your beloved pet, then I can draw their portrait for you in either black and white or in colored pencil. Or if you simply can't wait for a commission, the original pencil drawings in my store are ready to ship out right away! It really is making fine art portraiture of dogs and cats available at just the touch of a button."
The primary medium behind these beautiful drawings are pencils – the most basic and fundamental of art utensils. Each pet drawing starts with a quick preliminary sketch and then slowly develops as layers of shadow and color are added with meticulous detail work. Long hours of focus and precision formulate into striking dog and cat portraits…all expertly designed to make you pause and reflect on the beauty of our four-legged companions.
Every pencil drawing from Artistry by Lisa Marie comes matted and signed by the artist. Custom portraits are even vetted for final approval by the client before they are shipped out, ensuring customer satisfaction with each compelling drawing.
According to Lisa Marie every animal, whatever their breed or species, is a beautiful work of art just waiting to be drawn and commemorated.
