Haute Dauge Portraits
Mooresville, NC 28117
Custom hand-painted acrylic pet portraits of beloved dogs, cats and horses. I only use 100% archival quality, organic cotton linen canvases, and only water-based paints. My brushes are 100% synthetic hair -no animal products.
I capture the unique spirit of each pet on canvas through extensive conversations with the pet's parents. I work from photos that you would provide, and together we'll choose the one that best captures your pet. If you are in the Charlotte metro area, I would love to meet your pet as well.
If your pet has crossed the Rainbow Bridge, I can include the pet's cremated ashes in the painting. My paintings become treasured heirlooms and unforgettable gifts.
