About L. Forgiel Studio
Lora Forgiel

Clinton Middle School Art Teacher and Pet Portrait Artist

Adrian College, 2010 Bachelors in Fine Arts.

Whether I’m in the classroom teaching or at home with the family I will always keep my hands busy with art.  Creating art calms, focuses, and makes me happy when I share my artwork with others.  One of my favorite things to do is observe my surroundings, soaking in the arrangement of people, animals and plants interacting with colors, textures, line, and space.

Come visit my Facebook page to see my previous journeys at www.facebook.com/lora.forgiel.S

And, inspire me for my next journey with a custom portrait of your precious someone.

Personalized pet portraits from a photo of your pet.

Great gift for Christmas or any holiday for a pet lover in your life, or an excellent way to always remember a beloved pet that has passed. Send a photo of your furry friend and we will create a wonderful work of art by hand.

Each order is hand drawn by Lora Forgiel with Prisma colored pencils on Strathmore Bristol Vellum paper. These high-quality products are used to ensure that your drawing will last a lifetime. All drawings feature a white background and are unframed unless otherwise specified. 

For a single pet portrait, I have options in 5x7, 8x10, 11x14, and 16x20. Do you have multiple pet you want in one drawing? I can create a double portrait in a 11x14, or 16x20. If you would like three pets in a single drawing, we only offer a 16x20 size at this time.

The photo used must high resolution and with good detail and lighting. The higher quality and detailed photo, the better the drawing will be. Not sure if you have a good photo? Contact me and I can help you with deciding, with no obligation of buying. To get started, send me a message with the photo and I will answer any questions you have and provide recommendations so that you are confident with my product, and an agreed upon timeline. 

When you complete your purchase, I will begin working on your custom portrait. The process will take 1-5 weeks, depending on the size and complexity of the work. When the portrait is finished, I will send you a photo to ensure that you are happy with the final product before it is shipped. If needed by a certain date, please let me know.

If you would like to find out more information about the artwork please feel free to contact us.
