Welcome to Blue Giraffe Art Works!
...where I combine my passion for art and animals into creating beautiful, hand painted custom portraits of both pets and people. Here you will find many unique items that feature my art work, including handmade pillow covers, stationery sets, archival art prints and original art work. Each of the items I offer start with portraits I have painted on canvas, most of which were commissioned paintings. I find great joy in sketching and painting the furry loved ones in our lives, and hope to embrace the subject's personality through my painting, giving the gifts of good memories and smiles to those who receive my portrait paintings. Browse around- check out my new store front, consider commissioning a portrait for yourself, and let me know if you have any questions! I am continually adding new products to my store, so check back often and join my emailing list for updates!
Have a beautiful day and enjoy your handmade shopping experience! ~Micah
I am currently booked for Christmas 2016! Thank you!
I offer gift certificates for sale if you'd still like to give a custom portrait gift this Christmas.
Just check out my shop to find them, or contact me.
"I recently reached out to a few artists around the Nation whose artwork I felt was fantastic in the hopes that perhaps one might be willing to donate a painting that we could use for fundraising and selling products like T-shirts. Micah Jones from Blue Giraffe Art Works in Houston, TX very quickly answered my email with a resounding YES. After some discussions, I gave Micah a photo of a Border Collie belonging to the CenTex Search and Rescue Team that helps Dogs for Conservation regularly with dog training, and she blew us all out the water with a beautiful portrait that will benefit two organizations and great causes. Thank you so much Micah for volunteering your time and incredible talent to help us!!" - Rebecca
"Micah - I LOVE IT!!! I can't believe you are so fast - and captured him to his core! It is fabulous! Love, love, love! My husband couldn't believe how realistic it is. Thank you so, so, so much!"
"Thank you, thank you, thank you!! What a FUN keepsake for our family."
"I was so excited when it came in the mail – she takes so much care in wrapping it and providing care instructions and a cute little thank you note. I was even more excited for Jake to open it. We love our little guy so much and I’m very glad that we now have this artwork to cherish forever."
"This looks great! We love it! That's definitely our Auggie doggie! :) It looks so incredible in person! My husband and I absolutely love it!"
