Custom Pet Sculptures by request with their real life photo models
Scroll down to view examples of sculptures modeled after specific pets using photos of the model. I am available for special orders, animal requests, custom orders of your pet, 3D pet portraits or any commissioned sculpture of any critter you'd like to buy. Use the contact page form to send a request for a likeness of your pet or any other needle felted mini custom sculpture.
Commisioned requests: I take requests for mini needle felted sculptures for 3 dimensional likenesses of your pet, or any other animal. Request a custom pet portrait of any breed of dog, cat, or other species of animal you'd like, wild or domestic, as a 3-D soft sculpture. I work from photos and am willing to create any kind of pet or species specific request. I've done custom request birds, guinea pigs, sloths, & more. Scroll down to see some testimonials from previous customers and the pictures below which show examples of my previous needle felted pet sculptures working from photos. These soft sculpture pet portraits are made with the dry felting wool fiber craft to create soft, handmade, three dimensional sculptures of pets. Would you like to see your pet used as a model for a miniature needle felted art sculpture? Use the Contact page to send your request.
Special Request: An animal art sculpture can help bring more interest to an adoption group or animal shelter. If there's a certain special pet available for adoption that you'd like to see as a mini soft sculpture, by request, I can post a pic of these special animals in an auction along with their hand sculpted likeness. While eBay limits links within auctions, I can post a link to your adoption site or rescue group on my link page and my eBay "me" page. Note: The current animals on this page are not in need of adoption, but there may be some in the future as there are an endless number of animals currently without homes. Many of the pets below were adopted and some include a link to an animal shelter or rescue group in the text description.
Animals in shelters including dogs, cats, guinea pigs, & more, Homeless animals are often the inspiration for my other handmade sculptures. To find a friend or a list of rescue groups in your area please visit
You can read a few testimonials below, more are on my  eBay feedback page :)
Even if you don't see any auctions, I am still taking requests for custom animal sculptures.
