My name is Lauren. I started Potato Art Studios in 2017. I specialize in creating 100% hand-drawn portraits of pets from my home studio in San Jose, California. A portrait is a unique and one-of-a-kind gift that will be treasured for years to come. They are also a wonderful way to memorialize the loss of a family pet. I work from photos to create your custom art piece. Take a look at my Portfolio gallery to see my work for past customers.

I use only professional-grade light-resistant colored pencils and pastels. I take pride in providing great customer service and delivering portraits that exceed expectations. Over a hundred of my custom portraits are displayed in homes across the U.S. and overseas. For holidays such as Christmas, I recommend getting in touch as early as possible. Portraits are completed in the order that I receive them.
