"Working with Emily was truly one of the best experiences I’ve ever had working with someone. She was patient, thoughtful and took her time in making sure she understood my project. She listened, quickly responded, made adjustments and understood me at the deepest level when I didn’t know how to put what I wanted into words. I will continue to hire her for future projects. She gave me the greatest gift... preserving the memory of my fur family just as I always want to remember them. Her artistry is truly beyond talented. You won’t regret working with her on your most treasured project. She’s the best!"

"Emily was fantastic to work with. She really captured the personalities of my dogs (Elaine & Cosmo) in a beautiful portrait for my fiancés birthday that he adores. She was quick to respond, took into account what I wanted, and provided me with a timeline of when I should expect everything to be completed- which I really appreciated. I had such a great experience working with her on this beautiful piece of art that we will cherish forever. Her portraits make great gifts for your loved ones, as well as yourself!"

"After unexpectedly losing our sweet Bauer and seeing Emily's work, I knew I needed to have one of my boy. The process was extremely easy, and fast and the end result was more than I ever could've imagined. It is so beautifully crafted, and you can tell that Emily put so much heart and soul into each piece she creates. I am forever grateful for her talent that helps me heal, and remember each and everyday when I look at it."

"Emily couldn’t have done a better job capturing each one of babies personalities in her paintings! She was extremely kind and had my paintings done in no time."

"Emily was so easy to work with. She was extremely responsive to emails and brought some great ideas to the work of art. I felt like Emily really listened to what I wanted from the painting and incorporated it. She worked with me on carefully narrowing down our photo choices to one that would work well for the piece. 


The painting itself came out spectacular. It truly is a work of art! Emily is so talented and really captured Jojo’s personality. There is such life in the painting! We cannot wait to display our painting at our wedding to make it feel like our sweet cat will be present on our big day. And then we cannot wait to keep this special piece in our home for years to come!"

"Emily and NorthHouse Creative was so great to work with.  The quality of the portraits is amazing and she was able to capture the twinkle in our kittens eyes.  Emily was able to bring out the detail in Cheeto even though the photos we provided were pretty old and didn’t have a lot of detail.  I was so pleasantly surprised and happy with how the final paintings looked just like our little furry family members.

 In addition to the quality of the paintings Emily was so easy to work with.  This was my first experience with having paintings done from photos and wasn’t sure what I was getting into.  Emily made it painless and was so responsive!!   I have been recommending NorthHouse to everyone and showing off our AMAZING pieces of priceless artwork!"

"Emily was so wonderful to work with. She took the time to get to know a little about me and my pet, and truly made this experience very personal! Her attention to detail and her quick turnaround were so greatly appreciated! I can't wait to hang her work up in my house for everyone to see!"
