Ordering & About Us

Kathryn Nicholas, Sculpture Artist

Welcome to my site!

Each sculpture cost is listed according to size and can be found under “Our Products”:  small; medium; large and so on. To start your order or ask a question, please use the Contact Us page; I reply quickly to every email. Include an image if you’d like, and also your zip code. That way, I can provide you with a sculpture total as well as mailing fee.  Once you decide to order, multiple images can be sent to me at my personal email address. Just choose the size sculpture you prefer, shown to the left. Payment is by the pay pal invoice I send; a personal check is also accepted. Payment places your order as next.

I look forward to working with you; here is a  little about me~

I am committed to capturing the spirit and realistic likeness of each animal I sculpt. I am fascinated by animals, and welcome every order as a unique opportunity to get to know the true personality of each pet. Every piece I create is a one of a kind original of your pet, from your original photographs. I’ve been sculpting animals of all types and kinds since 2004 when a grouping of dogs that I had sculpted debuted to rave reviews in Richmond, VA.

Having had the great fortune to share my life with pets over the last 30 years, I fully understand how devastating the loss of one can be. Pets are family members; cherished, never forgotten. I welcome stories shared of any pet, and am happy to offer what I have learned over the years, in helping to heal after the pain of loss. To add an extra special touch to your work of art, I also offer beautifully engraved brass or nickel tone plaques, tacked prominently on the front or side of the wooden base. This provides a finished look that honors a pet whose life on earth has ended, but whose memory remains.

Invitations for Silent Auctions are always accepted, and My Pet Sculpture has donated sculpture services to the following causes and organizations: the Medical College of Virginia, the Maymont artist Kathryn Nicholas with sculptures of her own rescue petsFoundation, the SPCA’s annual “Fur Ball”, Fetch-A-Cure, Best Friends Animal Society, and Make-A-Wish radio-thon, where My Pet Sculpture gift certificates brought in almost $400 through the winning bid. Other contributions include: the Math Science Innovation Center for Advancing Educational Tools to students; Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in Utah, where I had the pleasure of sculpting a rescue from Michael Vick’s fighting ring dogs; this sculpture was created for a fund raiser, and also to Save Our Shelters (SOS) Pen Pal organization, which creates a unique opportunity for inmates in correctional facilities to care for and train shelter dogs, so that the pets can later be adopted as pets or service animals. My Pet Sculpture donates annually to numerous other shelters for adoptable pets.

Although mostly commissioned, My Pet Sculpture dogs are shown throughout Virginia in gift shops and several art galleries. In September 2007, My Pet Sculpture appeared in a local arts and news magazine and not long afterward, in a Texas-based publication, Network magazine. Most recently my work was featured on an Australian website, ‘Canine Collectible Courier”.

My Pet Sculpture provides an artistic, realistic replica of any pet and at the lowest cost available. I am dedicated to the love of pets, and to the precious souls I so enjoy capturing through sculpture .  After ten years, my fascination with this form of art continues to grow!
