As a cat lover and an artwork lover, I used to be intrigued once I heard about artist Gretchen Kish Serrano and her customized puppy portraits. Her items mix her creativity with inspirations from vintage artists. Those colourful artistic endeavors don’t seem to be most effective stunning, however they honor the bond her purchasers proportion with their pets. She focuses on cats and canines, however she’s at all times open to commissioning different pets.

Kish Serrano Puppy Portraits.

Gretchen makes a speciality of 3 distinct kinds: brush (impressed through the thick brush strokes and ambitious colour palettes of Vincent Van Gogh); drip (impressed through the expressionistic drips and splatters with daring, over- lapping colours and thick floor texture of Jackson Pollock); and gild (impressed through the gilded works of Gustav Klimt — to reflect this taste, she gilds the usage of 23 kt gold).

For over 10 years, Gretchen has been making a puppy choice of cats and canines known as Paw Palettes, for all puppy fans, furthering her research of grasp artists and their ways, whilst honing her personal abilities and keenness for artwork. She loves how non violent cats make her really feel, together with their adventurous spirits. She as soon as had a black cat named Siris, who would nap on her solar porch, having a look so non violent and content material. “Petting him at all times at ease me,” she says.
