Custom Dog Portraits

My mission is creating a portrait of your dog that captures the unique essence and character of your furry friend. Whether it be the centrepiece of your home or purchased as a gift, the timeless treasure will captivate viewers as the dog’s life like presence is immortalised in a portrait.


My name is Marina Haycroft and I’m a Brisbane-based pet portrait artist. I have enjoyed working with animals and drawing them for as long as I can remember.

I love connecting with other animal lovers and creating unique artworks that capture the character of their beloved furry family. It’s so rewarding to see photos of my client’s commissioned artworks hanging proudly in their homes.

“Hey Marina,

Thank you so much, it is perfect!”


“I received this beautiful artwork from my now husband, it is absolutely stunning and perfectly resembles both horses. My old mare (the bay) passed away only a couple months ago and this is the most special gift I could have ever hoped to receive. Thank you so much. I couldn’t love it any more! I cried when I opened it, it’s so special and something I will cherish forever.”
