      Zann is truly an extraordinary artist. Not only have we been absolutely blown away by her artistry, but all of our friends and family have lauded the realistic painting of our beloved dog. Zann’s penchant for detail clearly shows through in her artwork.

      The entire process was extremely simple and smooth. I was initially hesitant in commissioning a big art piece over e-mail, but Zann completely made it a breeze. It was always so easy to communicate my vision, and whenever I was unsure, she was very patient and would offer different suggestions that would most artistically fit with the painting. In addition to her communication skills, Zann’s attention to detail shines through every stage of the process. From her planning stage (i.e., computer mock-ups of your painting) to the actual painting, she would always send me updates and made sure that the painting was to my liking.

      If you’re looking for realistic, life-like pet/animal art, I wholeheartedly recommend Zann. She’s simply amazing – and for this reason, I am a repeat customer.

      I’m absolutely thrilled with our oil painting portrait of our dog. Zann is professional, responsive to emails and phone calls, receptive to suggestions, and most importantly – artistically talented!
