The Summer Art Festival Schedule is now up! Check out all of the fun places we’ll be participating throughout Northern California in the link below

At every event Potato Art Studios will be hosting live drawing demos and a giveaway! All events are free to attend and feature live music, food trucks, and lovely local artists.

For commissioned work, I am currently booked until mid-September 2022. My next availability will be updated at the top of the Price List page and online Etsy store. If there is an upcoming birthday or anniversary, and you are interested in gifting a custom portrait, please keep in mind that I complete artwork in the order I receive a deposit. I ship artwork unframed with tracking and insurance from my home studio in San Jose. A custom frame from your local frame shop may take an additional 4-8 weeks.


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 gallery to see my work for past customers.

I use only professional-grade light-resistant pastels on specialty French paper. I take pride in providing great customer service and delivering portraits that exceed expectations. Over two hundred of my handmade 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.
