Custom Toy Portrait

My son Jett has a little stuffed dog that he adores. He calls it his “pup-pup” and he can’t sleep without it. 
When I came across Jennifer Maher’s work I knew I needed to commission her to paint this little guy. Jennifer does custom toy portraits and her work is incredible. 
Here is the painting she sent me of “pup-pup”
Isn’t it precious! 
Here they are side-by-side for comparison. I love that no matter what happens to “pup-pup” we’ll always have this painting to remember him. It will be a lifelong treasure of ours. 
Contact Jennifer to have her create a custom painting of your child’s favorite toy. These would make the perfect gift for a birthday party or christmas!

    Fantastic idea! I love the way the painting is framed – which allows it to sit upright on the table as you've shown it! It's the perfect size too. Thank you for sharing!

    Such a wonderful idea that I would never have thought of doing in a million years (although I do take pictures of all the toys/books/animals we pass on to others). Cannot wait to capture Qak Qak the duck lovey in all her dirty glory.

    Thanks!!

    Absolutely brilliant idea!!! Why didn't they have someone doing this while I was little??? (c: The way that painting turned out is just so spot on, definitely a treasure!
