PERSONALIZED PAINTINGS of your favorite ANIMAL, TREE or MOUNTAIN.
Personalized paintings of your favorite animal, tree or mountain.
Welcome! My name is Blanca Gálvez, and I’m the artist behind this art shop. I specialize in creating personalized paintings of your favorite animal, tree or mountain that hold a special place in your heart.
Whether it’s a beloved pet, a memorable tree from your childhood or a mountain that takes your breath away, I will work with you to create a unique and meaningful painting.
This is not just an image, but a creative collaboration in which you will also participate, sharing your stories and emotions.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
1· How do you work? How do we collaborate?
The idea is to go deeper than just having me reproduce the images you send me. Apart from photos, you could also provide me with a video to help me to get to know your particular pet, mountain or tree better. Or you could tell me your story, why they´re important to you, or how they appeared in your life.
I want you to be part of the creation of this painting and experience the magic of art.
2· Can the commissioned painting be about anything other than an animal, mountain or tree?
Absolutely! What is important is that it has a connection to nature, such as a plant, a river, a flower or anything that inspires you.
If you´re still unsure, I would encourage you to write to me and we’ll see what we can do.
3· Can you give me some examples?
There are many possibilities, but here are some examples that may inspire you:
- A portrait of your special pet who shares their life with you.
- A portrait of that special animal from your past whose memory you would like to preserve in the form of a painting.
- A portrait of a magical animal that has always accompanied you symbolically and/or appears recurrently in your dreams.
- A painting of something from nature that evokes special memories.
- A painting of something from nature that evokes special emotions. They could be related to your place of refuge, walks in the countryside or hikes in the mountain.
- The commission can be for you or for someone else, for a birthday, a wedding, a special gift or simply a way of showing your love for that person.
4· What will my painting or print look like? Are there different styles to choose from?
If after looking at the different options, you´re not sure which one you prefer, don’t hesitate to contact me, I’ll be very happy to help you choose. On the other hand, if you have something else in mind, do contact me, you never know the potential your idea could inspire in us!
Alternatively, if you prefer not to choose a particular style at the outset, we can start working on your project and we´ll find the most appropriate style as we go along.
- Chinese ink paintings: I use free brushstrokes to create poetic and delicate images in watercolor.
- Graphite Pencil Sketches: With precise lines and subtle shading, I capture the essence and emotion in each piece, creating compositions that speak with elegance and depth.
- Intaglio engraving: Using metal-plate printmaking techniques, I create intricate and meticulous images.
I know it can be difficult to decide which technique to choose. That’s why I invite you to read some of my clients´reviews and discover how they enjoyed working with me, no matter which technique they chose. You can find my clients’ reviews at the bottom of this page:

With Blanca Gálvez you live the process. A process based on her lovingly meticulous work, which you feel from your first contact with her until the work is with you. You feel that you are part of the gestation of the work and its meaning, to the extent that she accompanies you and invites you to get to know it and understand it.
The delicacy and temperance that her art inspires will be part of your space. It will provide a story with a beginning and an unfinished end which you will build yourself, because you feel that the canvas tells your own story.
We, at the NGO “Acciónenred”, were looking for a present to give to the people who altruistically collaborate with us in the project “Aula de Pensamiento Crítico” (Critical Thinking Space). It´s a space for talks, debates and reflections, in which we try to consider the social reality that surrounds us in a critical and realistic way. So we wanted something which represented that observant and sincere approach.
We met with Blanca Gálvez to explain what we wanted, and she came up with the idea which blossomed into the wonderful “Wise Owl” prints. Both the creative process and the final result were a great success and most enjoyable. We recommend the experience unreservedly!!!

I knew Blanca’s work well, and that’s why I put myself in her hands, literally, so that we could design the customized painting that will hopefully remain on my body for a very long time.
Although at the beginning of the project, she didn’t consider the possibility of designing tattoos, together we sketched a wonderful motif of nature and mountains that went beyond the obvious and combined originality and simplicity with affection and professionalism. The special thing about working in this way is that the dialogue with the artist makes you feel like the work is truly your own. An unbeatable experience!
Blanca Gálvez’s work is, for me, pure beauty, fineness, elegance and a sensorial experience of movement, color and emotions.
Dealing with this artist is like a reflection of her work. There is care in the whole process, from your initial choice, trough the purchase, to the moment you receive her art. Everything is wrapped in her gentle touch. Thank you, Blanca!
What I liked the most when I commissioned a series of prints from Blanca was the way she made me feel like a partner in the creative process as if I were accompanying the birth of the artwork in all its richness and many nuances. Plus, she managed to do this without spoiling the final surprise.The experience culminated in the prints that I now enjoy looking at every day. Thank you Blanca for taking so much care and for all your attention and creativity.
