Whether you’re a cat lover or a dog person, we can all agree that our pets are part of the family. And what better way to celebrate your beloved furry friend than with a handpainted portrait?
That’s where Lorraine Skelsky Chapin comes in. The award-winning New England artist is creating custom pet portraits for Frontgate.
Chapin’s art focuses on natural beauty – landscapes to still lifes, gardens and animals. Her work is saturated with light and color, reflecting the energy, atmosphere and unique personality of her subjects.
“My goal is to capture the essence of my subject, working in acrylic and oil and painting with feeling,” she says.
Pets certainly have a persona all their own. Chapin takes great care to capture your pet’s character in every brushstroke.
Chapin’s personalized portraits are a beautiful celebration of the love, service and kinship we receive from our pets. They make wonderful, unexpected gifts for any animal lover on your list. Your personalized pet portrait arrives beautifully framed.
Chapin is an exhibiting artist at the PS Gallery in Litchfield, Connecticut, and the Barn Gallery in nearby New Fairfield. She serves on the Board of Directors for the Fine Line Art Gallery in Woodbury, Connecticut.
