ART: Playful Digital Pet Portraits by Matilda Illustrations

Matilda Illustrations Custom Dog Portrait Sara Berrino

When Sara Berrino rescued an insecure little puppy from the streets of Buenos Aries, she had no idea that she would lead her to explore her creative talents. Now based in London, Sara is creating playful digital portraits of all sorts of pets via her online shop Matilda Illustrations.

“Matilda had some confidence problems so I took her to obedience classes. I always loved drawing and ended up illustrating all the dogs in the class to go on t-shirts for the annual talent show. Since then I have literally illustrated hundreds of pets, from dogs, cats, horses, bunnies and even fish,” says Sara.

Sara uses your pet’s best photos as a guide to create a one-of-a-kind pet artworks that will add a lot of heart to any home. Choose your background colour and you can even accessorise your pet, like the Chihuahua in the tutu below!
