Jeanelle Demers

Medium / genre: Acrylic paint on canvas, animal and human portraits, other subjects.
Tell us about your work: I create custom portraits by commission, to immortalize memories of special people and animals. Working with a reference photo and acrylic paint on canvas, I use vivid colors and a high level of detail to create vibrant and realistic paintings, evoking the essence of each subject and capturing the twinkle in their eyes. I love seeing my finished paintings given as meaningful gifts or used as a way to memorialize those who have passed on, and I truly value the connections that I make and the stories that I experience through sharing my art in this way.
