I love pillows and am always searching for the next unique one, especially if it has animals. That’s when I came across Viet Tran’s Etsy shop Draw Your Portrait. She creates amazing, customized home décor using the picture you send in. Her custom pet pillows are beautiful. They are perfect to spice up your house, to give as a gift or create as a precious pet memorial.
Viet studied graphic design from her father when she was in high school. “In college, while I was studying economics, my real passion was fine art. During this time, I taught myself graphic design and fine art and became a freelance designer/ artist.”
After some research, Viet found that the global, online marketplace Etsy was a good place to offer her unique art style to more people. First, she mostly painted people but found that some wanted her to draw their pets. “As I have drawn more pets over time, my love for these fluffy animals has grown stronger!”
Viet does much more than pillows. You’ll find custom portrait paintings and drawings from photos in her shop plus products with custom portraits like pillows, mugs, blankets, phone cases and tote bags. Look for future products like custom pet portraits on T-shirts or pet mats.
