“Digital Pet Portraits are quite popular, and despite being technologically created, they are each very unique,” says Vicky Boatright aka BZTAT. “I use a variety of ipad apps and filters with each image to layer in a depth of color and texture. these add to the personality of the animal to create a very special artwork. They are also more economical for people who are budget conscious. I am also offering an option where I will send you the digital file where you can do the printing yourself!”

Artist Vicki Boatright, known as “BZTAT” (pronounced bee-zee-tat), is the preeminent pet portrait artist for the  Contemporary Pet Lover. Animal loving art collectors worldwide have commissioned artworks by BZTAT to celebrate their relationships with their beloved pets. Vicki specializes in whimsical drawings, paintings and prints of cats, dogs and other companion animals. She creates colorful customized pet portraits, which are unique in their original contemporary style.

Vicky has been a part of the BlogPaws Community and the yearly conferences since early on, and we adore this mural she created for us. In fact, the year we did this mural, Vicky asked attendees to add a favorite pet quote or saying to the mural. I happened to write “My heart beats dog” off the top of my head. Well, that is now my trademarked quote and I am so grateful she did that mural. I was really inspired by her work and continue to be. Here is that very mural when it was showcased in Denver:
