Theresa did a beautiful job on the painting of my beloved dog! She captured Teddy’s soul perfectly, and I’m so impressed by the depth of detail and care she put into him. My fiancé surprised my with the painting as a birthday present, and it’s the best gift I’ve ever received. I’ll cherish Teddy’s painting forever.
I cannot express the joy that Theresa’s art evokes from everyone who sees it. We commissioned a portrait of our dog Dakota, and she so exquisitely captured her sweet spirit! All who pass it comment on the happiness that shines through the brushstrokes. Whether painting pets or people, Theresa is a master at portraying each individual personality on paper. We are already planning our next commission!
Working with Theresa was so easy. She is a consummate professional, timely and communicative, engaging and interested, and she truly cares about her clients. We were so thrilled with the final product we immediately commissioned a second portrait as a gift. My sister-in-law was over the moon! Thank you, Theresa, for spreading such joy through your gifts!
When we commissioned drawings of our two dogs, we expected a lot from Theresa as she is very talented. Even so, we were very pleased and even surprised at how she was able to capture the spirit of each of the boys. We are thrilled with both of the drawings.

I first “met” Theresa in a Facebook group. It was there I first saw some portraits she had created. I happen to have a dog who has a very striking face and a huge personality. And I really love him. So I asked if Theresa would do a portrait of Frank. Frank Sinatra. Think of a Rottweiler face with ice blue eyes. Theresa and I agreed, and I began sending her photos of Frank. The pose she used for the portrait was from a photo taken the day I finally brought Frankie home from the rescue. She managed to capture Frank’s personality and spirit. I dearly, truly love this painting. It’s perfectly mounted, matted and framed. I am beyond pleased with Theresa’s work!
I just want to take a moment to recommend Theresa and her amazing artistic talent for any art commissions you may need. Theresa is professional, communicative, timely, and especially a ton of fun to work with. I might also add that she’s a perfectionist. There is something about a painting that speaks in a different way than photos, and while they’re both a great way to preserve memories, the right artist can sometimes capture things that don’t show up in the photograph. Theresa is that artist that does exactly that. Thanks Theresa! I look forward to more commissions!
My sister commissioned a work of art from Theresa to memorialize my dear cat that passed away. I am awestruck by how realistic and authentic the painting is and how it captures my pet’s essence. I look into my cat’s eyes and can see her, as I remember her, looking back at me. Thank you so much.

It is a joy to work with Theresa Jennings and to see my memories come alive in watercolor. She is so professional, patient and passionate about her work that I know I will commission more pieces. Her art touches my soul and keeps important memories alive.
My daughter and so many others, loved this sweet boy, an orphan in India and one of my daughter’s foster children she cared for. I wanted to do something to honor Harbaz’s far too short but impactful life. I knew Theresa was a master at capturing the soul of a person with her art, and so I could not think of a better way to honor this gentle soul and my daughter’s love for Harbaz than to have Theresa paint his portrait.
Let me just say, that as an amateur artist who has painted and crafted for years…that I don’t mess with watercolors. They are impossible to get a smooth shading or transition. They are difficult to control for exacting lines, and tend to bleed into areas you hadn’t intended with but the slightest mistake. Or even no mistake. If you want to leave some white space in the middle of your work, forget about it. Watercolors are wild, unpredictable, and mischievous.
But Theresa has managed to tame them. Everything I thought impossible in this medium, she has achieved, and done so in a way that captures the spirit, life, and perfect image of my children. Job very well done. Would buy again.
I’ve always thought of watercolors as being a medium for tranquil landscapes or a still life. To see my dynamic, energetic, and sparkly-eyed munchkins captured in watercolor is pleasantly startling! I didn’t know it was possible to create evocative portraits like this, especially at large scale – and it perfectly complements the watercolor decor of my kitchen. I enjoy looking at Theresa’s artistry every morning as I pack the same munchkins off to school. They’re certainly more tranquil caught on paper!
