Custom Gift Idea for the Holidays – Artist Interview

Looking for a unique and original Christmas gift this season? A friend of mine is a truly gifted artist, and she is offering a new piece of art for the holiday season. Quality glass ornaments handpainted to your request. You can have an ornament customized with a painting of someone’s cat, dog, or (obviously) their favorite horse! This makes a really special and unique gift… I am ordering a few for family members who I hope don’t read this blog! These are truly quality pieces and the first time that they have been offered by Kaitlyn McGarvey of McGarvey’s Custom Portraits.

In the video below, I sat down with Kaitlyn to talk about her artwork and how she is shaping her passion into a new business.


In the past, Kaitlyn has specialized in full size custom portraits of horses and dogs, and I can personally attest to Kaitlyn’s work as I ordered a full 11×14 portrait of my boyfriend’s hunting dog for last Christmas. It turned out beautifully, truly a perfect likeness of Belle. Take a look below.
