Etsy is one of my favorite places for gift ideas. I love discovering unique handmade items, such as these portraits from artist Eline Niemi who runs the Etsy shop Tundrada.
She makes gorgeous custom pet portraits with a wood burner and a pine slab. Eline then adds acrylic paint to bring the pictures to life.
Her store is named in honor of this sled dog, Tundra, and the Latvian word “rada” which means “creates.”
Eline consults with the client several times during the portrait process to make sure he or she is happy with the final product.
There is still time to place an order and have a custom pet portrait delivered for the holidays.
You probably recognize Envy and Zain from Kelly Bove’s Instagram feed. If you aren’t already following these two Border Collies, you might want to!
Follow Tundrada on Instagram to see more of her creations.
Eline lives in Lapland, Finnland and uses items she finds in nature as the primary materials for her crafts. In addition to pet portraits, Eline makes jewelry and also sells antlers for dog chew toys.
