Local artist turns pet photos into custom paintings

San Antonio pet owners are sending in their requests to a local artist

SAN ANTONIO – Mónica Zamarripa is a compliance officer by day and an artist at heart.

She uses inspiration from her late mother, Ofelia, to create Ofie’s Custom Art.

“I just posted a portrait and people started reaching out with their requests and it just went from there,” Zamarripa said.

Now, her business has turned into mostly pet portraits.

“Whether it’s a dog that has passed away or just a pet you love, I can turn it into art,” Zamarripa says.
