Dog Portrait Painter

Hello!  

My name is Camille Benoit and I am a classically trained artist who just happens to love painting dogs.

I am a graduate of Saint Olaf College (B.A. Fine Art) and I have studied classical realism both at The Atelier and with artist Joe Paquet (St. Paul, MN.) for the last 15+ years.

Being a huge animal lover myself, I find myself drawn to animals as frequent subjects of my oil paintings. I think the best portraits  capture their personalities in their natural environments – whether that be around the home, with their favorite toy, or out in nature.

2018 is my year! I'm formally taking on building my portfolio of animal portraiture work, and I will begin accepting commissions!

Custom Pet Portraits in Oil

Working from your favorite photo, I will create an oil painting of your beloved family member to capture their true spirit and soul.

There's nothing that makes me happier than making you happy with a portrait of your dog that you'll forever cherish.
