Alexandra Cech is a painter who found the job of her dreams by combining her two biggest passions in the world – painting and animals. She’s a professional pet portrait artist and the owner of her own business called Painted Paws.
Back in 2011, while she was still a student in art school, Alexandra started painting dogs as a hobby. After graduation, she started receiving more and more commissions and very soon her hobby turned into a full-time job.
The artist is now lucky to say that she’s painted more than 150 pet paintings so far and all of her customers are more than happy with her work.
“I’ve been painting pets almost exclusively for a few years now, and one of my favorite things to see is the final painting side by side with its subject. Since I work from photographs, I rarely get to meet the pet that I’m painting, but seeing them with their portrait is definitely the next best thing,” Cech shared with Bored Panda.
