The Pet Shop

We’ll be debuting an updated Pet Shop in June! With our new virtual digs will come three fundamental tweaks: 1) collaborating alongside animal rescue nonprofits, 2) the introduction of a larger stock size, and 3) an increase in our pricing structure. See more information right here, but until then, we’re happily accepting orders as usual.

Just who the heck we are.

In a nutshell, the Pet Shop (a tiny division of our Yellow Brick Home) provides affordable, custom pet portraiture in a mini, modern way. Our goal is easy: we want to bring simple, cheerful art into your home. By keeping each piece small (and darn cute), we’re able to offer a friendly price point while providing fun, conversational art of your pet; that is, art that you’ve personally commissioned. What began as an offbeat gift giving solution for the animal lovers in our lives has evolved into creating one-of-a-kind orders for all. As the proud parents of two spoiled cats and one pampered pup, we feel honored and lucky to live what we love.

And how ’bout those details?

Each custom work of art is painted with acrylics on your choice of a 4″x4″ or 6″x6″ canvas and wood panel with a 3/4 inch profile. A thin layer of matte varnish acts as a protectant from dust and scratches while allowing for gentle cleaning (as needed). Your personal piece is discreetly initialed, our trademark is hidden on the back, and it comes ready to hang. Paintings are wrapped, sealed, and protected for transit and delivered via USPS Priority mail for fast, efficient shipping.

How we work.

We start with a photo. Because we base our work around the images you send us, more is always better. Open communication is key, therefore, your input is invaluable. Within 24 hours of placing your order, we’ll contact you with further instructions and get that proverbial ball rolling.

In addition, we ask that you allow an average of up to 6 weeks for the finished product, which allows for a cushion of dialogue and careful consideration. From payment to mailbox, we’ll work with you to create a piece that meets your vision.

The investment.

Each unique piece is priced to start at $49, with the option of up to 2 pets per canvas. Some special rates may apply, such as these:

Custom orders of $100+ ship for free.* Discount will be automatically applied at checkout.

Alternately, rush orders may be charged an additional fee. Contact us with your time line, and we’ll work with you until the price is right.

Bulk order discounts are available. Contact us with your quantity, and we’ll be happy to provide a quote.

*Free shipping applies to United States only. Not valid on gift certificates. International shipping is available and can be selected during the checkout process.

Ready to get started?

Shoot, so are we. Simply select your size(s) and pets per canvas, then submit your payment via PayPal below. Once payment has been received, we’ll be knocking on that inbox of yours in no time – within 24 hours, actually. We’ll provide you with everything you need to stay fully informed of the process from step one. Of course if you have any questions before committing, you can always reach us at team@yellowbrickhome.com.

Or, maybe, you’re looking to give a portrait as a gift?

We’d love to do that, too. The gift of custom pet portraiture is a unique and cheerful way to show off your sweet side, you thoughtful friend, you. Our gift certificates allow the recipient to take part in the fun creation process, earning you cool points – while taking away the fuss and muss.

Just like the portrait itself, the certificate requires your custom touch by using fun and quirky ad-lib style text. Inside, you’ll find samples of our work and simple steps to redeem. A unique code is given to each one and portrait size and expiration is filled in by us. The rest, however, is up to you to write as you wish. (Yes, feel free to call ’em sweetums.) Gift certificates are printed on 5″x5″ beautiful matte, art recycled paper and come with a petal envelope and sticker enclosure. There are a few other things to mention, such as these:

Price of certificate includes pre-paid postage for the finished portrait(s) and has already been applied below.

Certificates expire within one year of purchase month.

If you have multiple certificates being gifted to one person, please contact us for a quote. This will save you on shipping costs and bring that total down.

Certificates can be sent to you or directly to the giftee and will be mailed within 48 hours of cleared payment – often sooner. To provide special shipping instructions, click “add” Note to Yellow Brick Home during checkout.

To get started, please select your gifted size of choice from your country of origin.

And because we get the warm fuzzies with every creation, we want to thank you.

Truly. It’s you, our clients, that have made this little shop possible. Here’s what you’ve had to say:

“I adore my painting. It is so fabulous and captures him in the most perfect way. I will treasure it forever – just like my time with him. He’ll be with me for a long time but this will ensure he will be with me for my entire lifetime.” – Brian & Charlie

“Oh, Kim! My Fleury art came today and I just have to tell you that I never thought it was possible that anyone (not even a photo) could capture Fleury’s essence and I am shocked by how beautifully you captured my sweet, quirky kitty.” – Liz & Fleury

“Who knew you could fit something so, so huge on such a tiny canvas? […] It was an absolute joy to work with you, from moment one. You had many photos to sort through and mile long descriptions of our furry kids, but you waded through it all and produced such lovely portraits of them. I could go on and on…bottom line, we could not be happier!” – Michelle, Gonzo, Maggie & Monkey

“Thank you so much for making such heartfelt art – it’s wonderful to know that there are people out there who are interested in making quality things that make people happy.” – Amanda, Jesse & Blanche

PS: We’re also on Etsy.

Our four-legged kiddos have inspired us to create a line of mini, cheerful works of art that you’ll find in our Etsy shop. They’ve been created by us for no particular reason other than good ol’ fashioned fun. For more information, you can view our Etsy policies right here.

  1. You did a wonderful job capturing my sister’s beloved dog Reggie. I presented her with the painting and she is thrilled beyond words.
    -Ann & Dave

  2. Hey Kim, Congrats on your pet shop. I still absolutely adore my portrait of Gracie, and since her health is failing (she’s an OLD girl) it will bring me much happiness in the future once she’s gone. Best of luck to you! Alisa

  3. Your giveaway is just to the USA, so I was wondering, can Canadians get involved in the shop as well? I sure hope so, my kitty would look so cute as art!

  4. Amanda, great question!

    We’ve updated this page to reflect any potential changes in shipping charges, and I’ve emailed you as well. As a quick answer, we want anyone in the world to be able to get in on The Pet Shop!

    Many thanks,
    K&S

  5. Thank you so much for our portrait of Philip! I can’t believe how well you captured his likeness, and the bird that you placed is the perfect addition to his portrait! Your communication was outstanding and I rave about you every chance I get! It is hanging up nicely in our hallway with our frame wall and I know that when people come to visit they’re going to see your painting and have oodles of things to say!

    Thank you again so much, Kim! I can’t wait until we get our Norwegian Elkhound puppy Ally so we can get our other portrait done!

  6. We love, love, love our mini Manny! He was the sweetest boy and you captured him perfectly. Thank you so very much and we look forward to working with you on the rest of our furry family!

  7. My husband and I love, love, LOVE our YBH Pet Shop portrait! Kim did an excellent job capturing our cats’ personalities – the details and colors are just lovely. Perfection! Additionally, Kim was a pleasure to work with – the whole process was smooth and easy. Many thanks for the great addition to our home : )

  8. Thanks again for the great painting of Huey (our puggle)! It is perfect and I can’t wait to order some more as gifts.

  9. I decided to get pet portraits for my family for Christmas. I was able to sneak pictures of my sister’s dogs, my mom’s cat, and my own dog for my husband. Working with Kim on getting the right pictures was easy, she had great ideas for all the portraits and made sure I approved. The portraits turned out amazing and really capture the personality of the pets. It’s not just a cat that looks like my mom’s cat, it is her cat. They were more beautiful in person than I could have imagined and my family loved them to pieces and were so surprised by my thoughtful gift. All thanks to Kim and Scott, I gave the best presents at Christmas. They are the perfect size and so cheerful. I recommend this to anyone wanting to capture the personality of their loved pet. Thank you again.

  10. I got my sister and brother-in-law a portrait of their two cats last year for the holidays and this year I got my sister, and my Dad’s girlfriends portraits of their dogs. Kim did such a wonderful job on all 3 of the paintings and it’s a gift that they still love!!
