Our story

Humble beginnings

A year and a half ago, I started painting pet portraits for close friends and family. A year ago, I started posting and selling those pet portraits on Instagram/Etsy and became more involved with the dog community in Chicago. 


In June 2017, I started teaching Paint Your Pet classes at several bars/venues all over Chicago. We now host classes all over and inspire fur-baby moms and dads to get creative with their little ones. As an artist and dog-mom, my goal is to spread the love of art & dogs through our fun and open classes.

Painting with a Cause

We are all about helping the community. In fact, we've worked with several Chicago rescues/organizations like The Blum Animal Hospital, The Real Dog Moms of Chicago (with the Animal Trio Foundation), Live Like Roo, Peace for Pits, Chicago Canine Rescue, CBBR, Pittie Please Rescue, Felines & Canines, and Be Fido's Friend. 

If you'd like us to host a class for your next fundraiser or would like us to donate a custom-made Pet Portrait to your next raffle- email us at trina@paintyourpetandsip.com to get started!
