My name is Ashley Schanz and I draw pet portraits for charity! All the photos are drawn using pencil and ink! So yes! They are really hand-drawn and not digitized... and you get the original copy!
You can have me draw a portrait by sending a photo to an account I created, “Schanz’s Sketchbook.” This account was created to help display examples as well as for a way for me to stay in touch with everyone and their fur babies!
You send me a photo! I draw the pup, kitty, or other fur babies! Once the portrait is completed, I send you a photo of the drawing and mail you the hard copy. Once I finish an entire sketchbook worth of drawings, I give the money raised to a selected organization. A portion of these proceeds goes to a shelter or organization across the US! These places are selected by people who have ordered a pet portrait in the past. You can also submit an organization or shelter to receive donations by just contacting me with their information! And, of course, you are more than welcome to donate more!
I’m trying to save the world, one portrait at a time! As Covid has rocked the volunteer industry, this is a fun and creative way for you to give back as well! Thank you from the bottom of my fur baby-loving heart!
