Dog Portraits by Jessika Cardinahl

Artist Jessika Cardinahl offers commissioned fine art pet portraits that are painted using your favorite photographs. An avid animal lover, she uses birds, wildlife and domestic animals as subjects in many of her fine art paintings. She embraces the exceptional connection between pet owners and their pooches and captures each subject’s spirit in endearing portraits.



Following her early educational pursuits in graphic design at the Fachoberschule für Graphik und Gestaltung in Hamburg, Jessika Cardinahl continued her studies at the Parson School of Design and at the U.C.L.A. School of Fine Art.

Jessika’s artistic emphasis is in the application with large scale canvas and linen. She also employs the use of craft packing paper, large cardboard mattes and clear, unfinished wood veneer as the foundation for her artwork. Among her favorite mediums are oil colors, oil sticks, Kremer powder color pigments, charcoal and aquarelles.



” I look at the connection between pet and owner and the beauty of each animal…an incredibly rewarding experience,” Jessika states.

Pet Portrait commission prices range from $500.00 to $2,800.00.
