My DIGITAL Portfolio
CALLING ALL DOG MUMS AND DADS
PRISSY TANG CREATES STYLISH PET AND PET & OWNER PORTRAITS WHILE ESTABLISHING STRONG BONDS BETWEEN YOU AND YOUR DOGS.
My Pet Composite Portraits soften your memories, allow your persona to shine forth, and burnish that bond between you and your pet. Yes I do Pets too.
In my high-end fashionista Pet Owner Portraits, done in watercolor, I bring to you all that I have gained and gleaned from my 20 years as a Fashion Illustrator for a US-based Fashion resource magazine.
Here I bring my unique, playful, illustrative style to painting beautiful watercolour pet portraits and pet and owner portraits.
My Portrait Artwork encompasses stylish fashion treatments for my Dog Parent Clients while the dogs maintain their adorable quirkiness with maybe a bandana or a bow tie thrown in for good measure.
Pets are part of the family
Pet Portraits act as updates to generations of pets within a family. They can last a long time and when people see a portrait of their pet, they invariably feel a deep love within them that triggers an exceptionally positive emotional response and attachment for their pets
The end result will be an alluring and stylish portrait of you and your dog that will stir up as a great conversation piece among your most appreciative viewers.
Each of my custom Pet Portraits Commissions is a homage to our amazing Dog Mum and Dad
Dedication and homage are due to the diligent and deserving dog mums and dads who despite knowing the shorter life spans of the wards under their care and their inevitable heartbreak, keep on to the tireless task of rescuing, fostering, and sheltering vulnerable animals everywhere.
To these, I salute because of my avid love for my past dogs ( I think there had been at least 12 of these, from my childhood till I began to live overseas) and knowledge of the immense amount of love AND work that go into the making of our happy, healthy, snuggle-loving pets.
Dog charity organizations in the UK and the US and Tributes to Dog Mums and Dads
I collaborate and support meaningful animal causes, like those in dog charity organizations (Feeding the Pets of Homeless Nevada, being a full member of The Dog Writers Association of America DWAA_US, offering my Pro Bono service to PetSmart Charities….etc), as well as my endeavor to honor and pay tribute to dog mums everywhere through my fashionista Pet & Owner Portraits.
For examples of dog rescue charity uk, I did on 2 separate fundraising events in Sept 2021: “BARK AID UK” and “Charity Trail Day UK”. I was the Head Judge of one category and I painted dog portraits for both pet charities on a Pro Bono basis.
Your story with each of your pets is special
Every one of your dog stories is riveting and unique. I do feel for them. Share them with me as these endear me to your pets and make my painting meaningful and a personal endeavor and give the portraits an added zing.

A delightful Q&A Interview of My work and I. Do check it out:
RECENT COMMISSIONS : Pet Portraits of my Clients
A Fashion-Fusion Pet Portrait of 18 year old Kayla E Adams with her sheltie, Flash, South Carolina. “Prissy Tang was so nice and patient with me. This was my first paid portrait and I was a bit nervous and not sure of what what was required of me. Prissy must have sensed that and quickly put me at ease and was so funny and engaging with the rest of my family – I just found the experience of the making of the portrait delightful and not the least intimidating. Prissy is not only an awesome artist, she is the nicest person to have as a friend. In the end I got a beautiful piece of art work from a talented artist and friend that will give me memories forever of my handsome old boy Flash and I am so thankful for it!” – Love, Kayla
I do some awesome doggo portraits too!
Who are the Dog Mums who are My Clients?
Prissy Tang paints alluring Pet Portraits for the Dog Mum who appreciates good tastes, and is fond of fashion and aesthetics. She would love to have the bond between her, her loved ones and her family pets immortalized in beautiful joy-filled gifts such as these.
Dog mum keeps herself up to date with the latest magazines like Psychology Magazine UK, GQ, Harpers and is enterprising enough to delve into blogs and books by thought leaders like Seth Godin and Marty Neumeier.
She has everything that keeps her happy but a high-end fashion portrait of her with a delightful makeover that compliments her age and her natural attributes will be something that she will treasure for a lifetime.
And graciously gives her bragging rights to the remarkable bond between her and her doggo that is nuanced and irrevocable as portrayed in the delightful painting.
Who are the Dog Dads?
These are the big-hearted dog lovers who happen to be men.
My men clients are business -owners, professionals, or heads of families who treasure a lovingly crafted pet portrait of their wards and are just as fond of showing off the sweetness of both pets and art to viewers who are awed by them. Whether their dogs are Spanish Water Dogs, or African Ridgebacks…..
Generous and expansive of heart, these Dog Dads rapturously tell of their story to those who’d listen. Often the stories of their remarkable bond between dog and owner are riveting and unique.
More of than than not, both these Dog Mums and Dog Dads are involved in fostering rescues, dog shelters or personally involved in dog welfare organizations. Or they are heads of families where everyone treats their pets as part of the family.

1. STRIKE A PAWS – THE HIGH-END MAKEOVERS A FASHIONISTA ILLUSTRATOR
CAN CREATE FROM YOUR PET PICS.
A fashion illustrator is using her styling skills to give dog owners a glamorous make-over
in a unique portrait with their pampered pooch.
Priscilla Tang, 70, has combined her passion for fashion and her love of animals to
create a portrait business with clients worldwide.
All she needs from her customers is a basic image of both the pet and their owner – not
necessarily together – and some background information to create a chic and stylish
piece of art.
Priscilla takes great care to focus on the personality of the dog owner and really tries to
capture their love and connection to their pet.
Then she has fun with chic embellishments and accessories to create an imaginative
and glamorous final portrait.
Priscilla said: “I do up their nails, their hair and add jewels and glamour to each portrait.
“I am on a quest to honour the hardworking dog mums out there who deserve to feel
chic and valued.
“It is my mission to show these women an image of themselves as the absolute queen
that they are in their dog’s eyes.
“I want my art to show the dedication, love and devotion in the relationship between a
beloved pet and their owner.”
Priscilla, who grew up in Malaysia and now lives in Hong Kong, started her pet portrait
business in 2019 after a long and varied career in design.
She originally undertook an architecture degree at The National University of Singapore
and then later turned her hand to fashion illustrations.
Priscilla moved to New York in the 1980s to attend the Fashion Institute of Technology
where she graduated with the highest distinction, a summa-cum-laude award.
After graduation she gained employment with Madison Avenue and Broadway Street
fashion giants as a lingerie garment sketcher.
Priscilla said: “I am elated after finding some of my work dull and dry to finally be doing
something that deeply satisfies me and uses my skills as well as my passion for
“I grew up with a deep love and appreciation for dogs and their companionship. I had a
beautiful mongrel called Bobby who came into my life when I was four or five. He was
everything to me and started my love for animals. He was a close friend, my patient
drawing muse and my playmate. I used to spend hours sketching and drawing him.”
Bobby sparked a life-long love of four legged furries for Priscilla but unfortunately she
says there isn’t the room in her apartment in Hong Kong for a dog right now.
She said: “I haven’t kept any pets for years because of the small sized flats that we
have in Hong Kong.
“Instead I cherish the time I have with friends and family who have dogs and allow me
some playtime. Or I enjoy the dogs kept by my family back home in Malaysia.
“I also like to contribute to dog shelters and charities to help them in their funding by
donating my art.
“I am also a full member of the Dog Writers of America Association.”
After an initial consultation and sharing of images Priscilla can paint a completely
unique and bespoke portrait in 12- 14 days which will ship internationally within four
Portrait prices start at $200 for a pet painting and increase with additional subjects.
Clients can choose whether they would like their completely original portrait painted in
watercolour or as a mixed media digital print.
Priscilla’s imaginative custom accessorizing and alluring make-over are included in the commission.
Go to PetPrissy.com to book.
Priscilla said: “My work has often given my customers double-takes, made them
teary-eyed and made them smile.
“My art can mend the broken heart of an owner grieving the loss of their pet.
“The short time we have with our pets on this earth really inspires me. Because owners
give their hearts over so openly knowing that they will most likely outlive their pet. It is a
beautiful, painful thing to love an animal so deeply.
“For me the objective of my work is to give this gift of joy to pet owners and dog mums
especially who are out in all weathers walking their pampered pooches and to give them
some special attention too.”
