Pet Reflections

Pet Portraits and Wildlife in Pencil and Pyrography


   I have met some very special and caring people over the years that have become clients and friends.  Here are some comments and testimonials that I have received over the years about my work.        


Luke and Kelly Seggelink,   Oshkosh Wisconsin

Marina, Your portrait of "Jake" is exactly what we have been searching for.  In your drawing, you have captured the personality of our Jake in a lifetime portrait.  Thank you.                                                      " My sunshine doesn't come from the skies.  It comes from the Love in Jakes' eyes."



Barb Belair,  Bracebridge Ontario




 Marina captures the pure essence of our beloved pets in every drawing she does. My sweet katy will be with me forever.  Thank you Marina!


Jeri Kaplon      Wood Dale, Illinois U.S.A

   Marina your work is absolutely beautiful! You were able to capture my boys personality perfectly.  You took the time to show me the progress of each drawing. Your first priority was to make sure we were satisfied.  You made us all very happy being able to enjoy our furkids in a unique way.  Thank you so much for sharing your talent.


Gregg Weatherill,  Cameron Ontario

   A couple of years ago I saw Marina's work displayed in a Pet shop. I asked for her contact information. Since then I have had 4 portraits done of my pets.  I found that Marina was able to not only capture the look of my pets but more importantly their personality.  It was the small details of each portrait that did it for me!  People who see the drawings for the first time instantly recognize them as "my pets".   As with all living things they will pass in time, but I will forever be with them each time I look at Marina's drawings. Thank you Marina.

  Marina it has been so nice knowing you "a fellow dog lover". The work you do is just amazing!  Casey's picture couldn't be any nicer! It's perfect.  I for one will spread the word about the excellent work you do. Thank you so much!


Michelle Hehir ,     Bracebridge Ontario



Thank you so sincerely Marina for the beautiful portrait you drew of our beloved pets, Twiggy, Shadow and Banks. Your attention to detail is incredible and you really captured their true essence. You have a natural talent. I will certainly spread the word. Thank you again!

Dear Marina, Frankies' birthday present couldn't have been better.  Thank you for the Portrait of Mia. It shows distinctively that you are no less than a master at what you do. It will be treasured in our family forever.

 Sincerely the Poretta Family
