People portraits, pet portraits and equestrian portraits from your photographs by True Image Fine Art

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 pet and people 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 the perfect pet or family portrait for them.
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.

Recent Testimonials

"Hi Ivana,
What a wonderful surprise to open this email this evening.
I will be honest - I got very emotional when I opened the image and seen the painting. I probably looked at it for about 5 or 6 minutes without stopping.
It's really beautiful. There are so many things I really like about the painting: their eyes and ears, the beautiful scenery of the background, how both Tara and Toby are looking off into the distance, the serenity of the scene, etc. Most of all I love how they look so much like themselves.
I knew, from the work that I had seen on your website, that the final output would be excellent. But I think now seeing it this has even exceeded those expectations."

Peter, Navan, county Meath, Ireland (commissioned a painting of two terrier and Irish wolfhound cross dogs Toby and Tara at Ballyboggan Abbey for his friend's birthday in 2021)
