Portraits by Aleks
Colored Pencil Pet and Wildlife Portraits
Aleks drew a beautiful picture of my husband’s heart dog, Belgium. When I presented Aleks’s work to him, his eyes teared up. It’s like we had a little piece of Belgium back!
Aleks not only captures the technical aspects of pets but somehow she taps into their personality, as well. Thank you for creating such a beautiful piece of art for us so we will always remember our boxer as the exquisite, gentle, sweet, tolerant creature she was.
Aleks is a magician in addition to being an artist. She created a wonderful surprise gift for my husband. Bringing our two beloved but passed kitties together with our two current loves into a beautiful portrait that will always make it feel as if they are all right there with us. The detail is incredible and leaves everyone who sees it in awe. Thank you so much for creating such a beautiful portrait.
When it was time to memorialize my beloved “Guiness” there was absolutely no one else I would have chosen to draw his portrait. Guiness was a huge Australian Shepherd that was blue Merle (white gray and black) Aleks’ fine pencil detailing picked up every fur on his fluffy body. I look at his portrait daily as it hangs in my living room. His portrait is so lifelike!! I’m extremely lucky to have found Aleks to create such a beautiful keepsake!
Aleks did two stunning pictures for us. One of our three children which was a Christmas gift for their grandmother. The other of our daughter sitting on the horse that stole her heart and had to be put down that day. Aleks' work captured beautiful moments in time that we will cherish forever.
Aleks drew the greatest picture of my cat, Gloves, after he tragically passed away. Aleks was able to capture the very essence of this very special cat. It was actually a perfect drawing of him, as if he was looking at me right through the picture. Thank you so very much, Aleks. You're remarkable and quite talented.
My precious Dals have been gone for many years now, but they live on every single day in my heart and mind, thanks to this gorgeous gift my Son commissioned Aleks to create for me from viewing TWO different photos. The likeness, even down to the colored collars they wore, is extraordinary perfection! Absolutely recommend Alek’s work, she is most talented and professional.
