While I wish that every pet could have a portrait session with a professional photographer, I know that isn’t always an option. Snapshots are okay, but most aren’t worthy of hanging on your wall. However, photographer and artist, Mandi Pratt from Greyboy Pet Prints can turn a snapshot into a fine art etching.
When I was in 7th grade, I snapped a photo of my dog that captured her personality perfectly. Sadly, I have no idea where that picture is. Like so many prints often did, it ended up in a drawer or a box and disappeared with time. While I carry the image in my heart, I wish I had the photo itself. It would be perfect to have turned into an etching from Greyboy Pet Prints.
Mandi believes in the beauty of art that lets you feel the texture. She uses traditional techniques from the art of printmaking to honor furry friends in an elegant piece of artwork that will compliment any decor.
I am in awe of crafters and artists, and I love these images of the etching process.
As a pet photographer, some of Mandi’s clients wanted a unique way to remember previous pets that had passed. Others had a particular image they’d like to get off their computer or smartphone and transform into fine art.
Mandi’s artist grandmother and two master printmakers taught her their methods. Her handmade etchings are a beautiful way to remember your special companion forever!
I’d love to learn how you display and store your favorite images.
