Pet Portraits in oil by Marcelo Rochá

The Artist

Hi, my name is Marcelo Rochá and I’m a professional Oil Painter. I have been working with pet portraits in oil painting for over 10 years. I have painted over 200 commissions which are mainly in the US, UK, Australia and Canada. My painting style is heavily influenced by The Art Students League of New York where I studied for years.

I have commissioned Marcelo twice for dog portraits and he never fails to deliver something that will touch your heart and you will cherish forever. He absolutely captured the soul of both of my pups and I will never be able to thank him enough.

You get more than a breath taking piece of art. Marcelo’s communication and professionalism is as amazing as his art. My fiancé and I were blown away at the quality of everything. Even the box that it comes in is top notch.

Marcelo did the most incredible oil painting of our dog Maya. The likeness to the original photo is unbelievable. It is a beautiful tribute to our beloved girl who we lost in June. Thank you Marcelo, for this wonderful addition to our home.
