Pet Portrait Commissions

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, with an impressionistic touch as I like expressive brushstrokes. In this page you will find;

Gift Box

What a great gift idea is a custom pet portrait in oil painting. For this reason I have developed this gift box, which is included in all commissions. Gift Box Video

Stretched Canvas

All paintings are made on the most traditional surface used in oil painting, stretched canvas. (Exception for 9×12 which is made on wood panel)


Painted Edges

All paintings 12×16 or larger have painted edges and arrive ready to hang on the wall. No frame required (Image: Stretched canvas vs Wooden Panel)


Pay when it's done

Partial payment is not required. When the painting is finished I send photos. If approved I will forward the Invoice with the total amount. Credit or Debit.

Free Shipping

Free Shipping to North America and Europe. For other regions it is necessary to consult me. The free shipping will depend on the size of the painting.

Painted from a photo

Send me as many photos as you have. I’ll help you choose the best photo to paint. I can change the background and remove collars and harnesses.

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.

🇺🇸 OH Jacob

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.
