Tristan’s Petcature Portrait by Kim Niles

You can commission a portrait of your pet on paper, canvas, or a digital portrait (new!). My unique KiniArt style has been 20 years in the making. My portraits are not an exact ‘photocopy’ of your pet, but are unique KiniArt PetCatures™, subject to my own interpretation and unique style.

For best results, send at least 2 photos of your pet, including a good face shot, (send more if you have them!) If the good face photo is not the same photo as that of your favorite pose, toy, etc. please send those as well and include a note if you want those things included in your portrait. Photos can be emailed and mailed printed photos are returned with the completed artwork. You may also include a note with your pet’s name, gender, and something about their personality traits, behaviors, favorites, etc. that make them stand out from your other pets, (It helps me to capture their personality!).

You’re buying the original artwork – not copyright to the image. All copyright remains with the artist. If you choose a digital portrait, or a portrait on paper, I can make it available to you on items such as KiniArt stickers, greeting cards, drink ware, apparel, home decor, phone cases, & more. If you choose a canvas painting, I’m only able to offer it to you on limited products, due to the texture and painted background. If you know you want a canvas painting but also want to be able to purchase KiniArt printed products featuring the portrait, please let me know prior to placing your portrait order so we can discuss your options for the creation of a scanned image of an inked & colored version of the portrait’s composition on paper to be uploaded to products you desire from my KiniArt shop(s).

All artwork is the property of Kim Niles. I do not sell the rights to my images, whether commissioned or otherwise. You are simply purchasing the painting or drawing to display in a decorative manner, not copyrights. Portraits: Although I retain full copyright to KiniArt Portrait artworks, I do not reproduce portraits for KiniArt products without your explicit permission.


Placing your order is what pencils your portrait in on the next available opening on my schedule. Your start date is then confirmed once I’ve received your reference photos. To get started, find the portrait option listings >here<. Next, choose your portrait type, select the size you wish to order, and, then complete the checkout process.

When you order a digital portrait or portrait on paper 9×12″ or smaller, you also have the option of getting your portrait art on virtually any product offered through my KiniArt shops! (Apparel, fabric, phone cases, greeting cards, and so much more). There is no additional fee for this service.
