Welcome to the True Image Family Portrait and Pet Portrait Studio!

My name is Ivana and I am a professional portrait artist working from my studio in Kilcock, county Kildare in Ireland. I create hand painted and hand drawn people portraits and pet portraits from photographs. On this website you will find a gallery of my previous commissions and more information about the unique service I provide. I work closely with every client to create their pet or family portrait.
All artwork is completely hand created and you can choose between acrylic painting or graphite pencil drawing. Portraits are created from your photographs and you can adjust the composition yourself giving you control over you commission. You can use one photograph or combine a few to create you memorable pet portrait or family portrait. Contact me to order your own unique portrait today.
