"I love, love, looooove my portrait of my dog! She was able to capture his personality so well! There was always really good communication when it came to asking what I wanted done, picking the colors, and was neat to see all the stages of the portrait! Would definitely recommend to anyone!"
-Amanda W. Owner of original painting Reggie
"You have given me back a treasured memory of my beloved bunnies, some long gone, some more recently passed. I loved them so, and having their sweet faces now with me again brought tears to my eyes.
The painting is so beautiful and much more gorgeous in person than in the pics you sent along the way. I thank you, thank you, thank you. "
-Susan A. Owner of original painting Bunny Memorial
"Chris is an extremely talented artist who captured my cats' personalities perfectly, even though she never met them! Her attention to detail regarding my descriptions of their quirks, and her translation of these unique features into portrayals on canvas far exceeded my expectations. She provided many opportunities for review/feedback sessions along the way, to make sure that I would be satisfied with the end result, which I absolutely am! On top of this, she is very speedy, efficient and affordable. My pets are like my children and Chris has helped me memorialize them in a unique and precious way. I highly recommend working with her if you have the chance!"

Waldo's annual fall festival is going semi-virtual this year! For $10 you can register on the Racery app and qualify for deals and specials all week long from your favorite Waldo businesses! Walk in person around Waldo, along our iconic Trolley Trail, from coffee shop to lunch spot, or log your steps from the safety of your home workouts.
I'm excited to announce I'll be partnering with the Collar Club, a new dog boarding, grooming, and day play in Waldo. I toured their beautifully renovated building and grounds to discover these fine folks are definitely dog people!
I'll be popping my tent on their grounds for the kickoff weekend of Waldo Week, Sept. 19th and 20th. And the two of us are developing some awesome partner deals and special offerings for you! In addition, look for me inside the Collar Club's lobby, later in the week, as I paint portraits LIVE on site!
More details are coming and you can stay on top of it all via our social media. Alan, Connor, Nate, and I are all waggin' our tails for the opportunity to show our Waldo pride and give you the best we have to offer!

The PeaceWorks KC Art Fair is going virtual this year and will feature dozens of artists working in all media. Join us for your art fair fix hosted on the Booth Central platform geared to help you experience the event as closely to "real life" as possible. Browse artist profiles, videos, links to online shops, and even chat with artists live on a video chat function! Each artist will have their "booth environment" set up behind them (in their garage, studio, or on the lawn) just as they would at an art fair in real life. So you can point out items, ask to see them better on camera, see all angles and up close, ask the artist directly about technique, chat about shipping or pick up, and more. All this without the sore feet, parking issues, and unpredictable weather!
I'm excited to be included and will likely be joining from my tent in the driveway...see you online!
You can hire me (Chris Bohannon/Artist KC) to create a custom portrait of a pet!
I'll consult with you to develop your custom painting to be meaningful and unique. Whether a keepsake for yourself or a one-of-a-kind gift for someone special, I will strive to exceed your expectations.

Although born and raised in the gateway city of St. Louis, Kansas City is what I call home. Creating has always been an integral part of how I perceive life and my journey through it.
I found my passion with a lengthy teaching career in Gardner, Kansas. In the spring of 2017, however, I ultimately discovered I could no longer treat my competing passion for Art as a hobby.
My career now is to create acrylic paintings that may bring joy to you and others. I have a great love of animals and enjoy creating animal portraits by commission.
When not painting, I serve as a volunteer member of the Board of Directors for my local non-profit cat rescue, Another Chance Cat Rescue.
I’m a good listener whose only agenda is to create a painting you and your loved ones can cherish through the years to come. I work from photographs and am in regular communication with my clients in pursuit of their satisfaction. I hope you enjoy my work and consider it for your home.
