Unique Pet Portraits by Bztat Studios – A gift from BlogPaws

As a follow up from my post on low cost DIY pet portaits, I had the opportunity to meet with the artist behind Bztat Studios at the 2014 BlogPaws Conference in Lake Las Vegas. I even won a free digital pet portrait at the conference!

For those of you who aren’t so artistic or “do-it-yourselfers”, a Bztat pet portrait could be a great option if you’re looking for a contemporary style pet portrait and you don’t know where to start to look for an artist. I’ve met her, she’s a real deal artist and very passionate about her art; and great at what she does! Check out some of the Premiere portraits from her blog:

The Premiere style was my favorite style of portrait, though it is a considerable investment in a piece of artwork, costing several hundred dollars. She also offers digital portraits (which is what I received at BlogPaws – check it out below) at a much more affordable price for average pet owners who want to honor their pets and their memories through artwork.

Bztat currently offers two other types of portraits on the website: Folk Art paintings and Contemporary drawings.

What I really love about this artist can be summed up by this quote on her website:

“I love creating custom artwork for people who love their pets! If you decide to commission an artwork, I want you to know that the work will be the result of a very special creative process. I do want you to know in advance that there is some uncertainty in the process, however. I am a fine artist, not an illustrator, which means that I create from my own vision. Although I try to accommodate special requests, I am not an illustrator articulating YOUR idea. I am a fine artist who has been hired to express her own. Trusting my process leads to a creative adventure for both of us. Please view different examples of my work to ensure that my style and process will lead the type of artwork you desire.” ~ BZTAT

You can absolutely feel the passion and creativity behind these pieces of art, plus they are backed up by her words on the website. As an artist myself, I completely understand the creative process being a unique adventure. If you haven’t had the time or interest to experiment with any kind of art, I encourage you to do so!

I’m extremely happy with my digital portrait from Bztat that was so generously given away as a prize. BlogPaws was a wonderful experience and I can’t wait to see everyone again at BlogPaws 2015 in Nashville, TN!

Have a fantastic weekend in the sun, everyone! Have you had a portrait commissioned by an artist? I’d love to know how you felt about the process and the result, share a picture with us on our Facebook Page or Twitter, too!
