"Hey Nicki! I got the painting today and it is even More Beautiful in person......Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I love my girls so much and Ruby is home now. This means so much to me. I was in tears at first sight of the painting. XOXO
Nicki Bernacchi is not only a talented artist, she is generous as well. For many years she has donated pet portraits to Norsled, a sled dog rescue group, for their silent auction. My sister bid on it, and won, and decided to use it for me since she had already had Nicki capture her favorite dog in the past. A photograph was sent to Nicki and the portrait that followed could not have been a closer match! I was thrilled to see our cat so expertly put to canvas. Time and time again we bring the photograph out to show guests just how perfectly she captured him in the painting. He now hangs proudly over our fireplace.
We loved the painting so much that my sister once again bid on her generous donation and again won! We had a portrait done of our current cat, Allie. She has so many unusual markings, we sent Nicki many photographs of her to work with instead of just one. The portrait shows she is not only an extemely talented artist, she has a fabulous eye for color and detail. It is so realistic, and even in a pose our cat sits in quite often! We love both and have both placed proudly in our home.
I recommend her work to anyone that wants to capture their furry friends forever!
Thank you so much Nicki. Words can't describe completely how grateful I am for this beautiful painting. This has been on my heart for many years and you captured them beautifully. When I look at this painting, so many memories so many emotions and so many thoughts run through my mind. This painting represents the journey the girls and I have had and all that God has brought us. to. Thank you Nicki for painting from your heart.
Well......I got it and don't know what to say. It is SO AMAZING. You have captured Peppy perfectly. I was in tears and I know my Mom will be also. I keep looking at it. I am beyond impressed. My Mom is coming for a visit on Saturday-so this will be given to her and she has no clue about it. It's been hard for me not to tell her something special is coming for her but that will make it all that much more amazing for her. I cannot thank you enough. I truly believe you are an Angel. You are such a beautiful person. You make things so much more beautiful for us here on earth. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I can't wait to do Ruby and Chila
Oh Nicki, I am beyond words to describe this painting of my beautiful dog.....He was everything to me just the same as my children. He passed away last October and this beautiful artwork you have done, has brought him back to me. Every detail of him is SPOT on... I am in awe of your talent.... The only thing I can do is say Thank You over and over again, and thats not enough...I Just Love It !!! and to my wonderful and beautiful daughter, Thank You for having this Amazing Artist bring my Peppy back to me....He has come home.
I have commissioned Nicki a few times to do paintings of my dogs, and one as a gift to my cousin in Scotland of his dog. Nicki truly captures the dogs personality while also painting a remarkable likeness of the photos provided to her. Her work is truly amazing.

PERFECT CUSTOM PORTRAIT
We wanted a special portrait of our two fuzzy daughters. Nicki took the time to capture our dogs exactly like we wanted. It was real life as puppies and adult lives. Great art, it's our third piece for our home. 5 star rating and review. Thanks Nicki
