Welcome to the website of

Frances A. Chuba

If you are here, you realize a smartphone picture of your beloved pet isn't enough.  It just doesn't capture the significance of the love you feel when your pet looks up at you with affection and admiration in its heart.


Pet Portaits in Oils is your opportunity to display the love you and your pet feel for each other.  A beautiful oil painting portrait will memorialize your pet's heart and soul, providing smiles and memories for years to come. 


When I work with you, I will take the time to understand the bond between you and your pet to be sure the portrait captures your pet's personality and brings your pet to life.   


My goal is always to bring to the portrait an eternal expression of the beloved member of your family.


I look forward to getting to know you and your pet.  Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions.

"Until one has loved an animal, a part of one's soul remains unawakened."

           Anatole France

"The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated."

         Mahatma Gandhi

"I have found that when you are deeply troubled, there are things you get from the silent devoted companionship of a dog that you can get from no other source."

                  Doris Day

"Dogs are the closest we come to knowing the divine love of God on this side of eternity.  They love me all the time, no matter what.  Their love, companionship and loyalty are why I have such deep faith in God.  They are God's love in cute, chubby bodies.  Dogs are umbilical.  Dogs are first responders.  Dogs never betray you or hurt your feelings."
