Custom Pet Portraits

by Kate


My name is Kate Freitas

I am a commission-based watercolor artist located in Central California and specialize in animal portraiture. Each portrait is created with quality paints and paper using photographs provided to me for reference.

I greatly enjoy painting each individual portrait and strive to capture the unique qualities of each pet by interpreting the photos and stories of my clients. My clients' joy is what drives me.

Whether you are looking for a heartwarming decoration, memorial or special gift, it would be my pleasure to create a one-of-a-kind piece just for you.

My Muses

I am also a pet parent of dogs, cats, horses, chickens, goats and mini donkeys. As I have always been passionate when it comes to animals and art, mixing the two seemed like the perfect fit. I am an ardent supporter of animal rescues and donate a percentage of all revenue to rescues in my area. In fact, every horse, dog and cat in my family came from rescue situations, some abuse cases. I have had pets all of my life and I remember each and every one. None was like the other and their memories never fade from my mind or heart.
