  • "I first came across Ama's art at the Doggie Event in dtk and I was instantly in love. I purchased a couple of prints and got her business card and connected immediately! 2023 was a tough year for me. I had to say goodbye to my furbaby of 16 years and I was doing everything I could to memorialize her. I decided to have a custom piece done and WOW I was blown away. It brought me to tears. Ama was so easy to talk to throughout the whole process and asked me to send a moodboard, ideas and pictures. She not only created my vision, she went above and beyond with little details that I wouldn't have even thought of. I can not tell you how much this piece means to me. I will treasure it forever. I loved it so much that after a week or so of picking it up, I decided that I needed another one. This one is being created now, but I already know that I will be in awe over it. Ama is such a talented artist. Her work is stunning and whimsical and she truly captures the essence of nature, connection and love. I am so grateful for her and her creations."

Everyone who sees the painting are in awe of the details and how well Ama got our dogs features. Can’t wait to commission another painting in the future. Highly highly recommend Ama to everyone. Pure, genuine talent."

  • "Ama painted two pet portraits for me, one of a single cat in a ballet outfit and one of three together with a Matisse-style setting. The portraits were beautifully done, and Ama worked hard to make sure she understood what I wanted. Ama had creative and fun ideas about possible backgrounds and outfits for my pets. I highly recommend Ama to others for fun and personalized pet portraits! "

  • "Over the last months, Ama did four different pet portraits for me to give as gifts to friends! Every single one was beautiful and special, captured a piece of the pawed childs soul. My friends were very touched, to receive so extraordinarily awesome paintings. At the next opportunity,I'll order another picture."
