Agnes Valentovics 

Agnes Valentovics is a Hungarian artist living with her fiancé, daughter and pets in Beachmere, Queensland.

She started drawing at a very young age but it was just a hobby for her. As an ex- equestrian she used to draw mostly horses. She came to Australia 3 years ago to study animal technology.

After a little work in this field she became a stay at home Mum and picked up the pencils again after a very long time.

Agnes is a huge animal lover and she specialises in photo-realistic coloured pencil or graphite animal portraits using the most high-quality materials. She loves the process of bringing your beautiful pets to life on paper and offers a variety of sizes and even multiple pets in one portrait. Agnes makes sure the artwork captures perfectly the personality of your pet and is very excited to draw your beloved family member!

Mahnie Amato

Mahnie Amato is a stippling artist based in the South-Eastern suburbs of Melbourne. She is employed full time in the mental health field and creates pet portraits in her spare time. Mahnie used to primarily draw as a hobby, but decided to open to commission in mid-2020.

Mahnie's stippling technique is extremely unique and can create incredible pieces of art that are a beautiful addition to any home. Each piece that Mahnie creates can take up to 20 hours to draw, as it is made entirely out of tiny dots from a fine pen. 

Mahnie pours her heart into her pet portraits, whether the artwork is to be a gift for a client’s friend or a memoriam piece for a passed beloved pet. Every pet portrait is special and Mahnie will take great love and care with your artwork.
