Hello, welcome to my website. My name is Berna Lamers, I am a versatile artist. Drawing, painting and animals have been my greatest passion since childhood. As a draftsman and fine painter I am specialized in portraying humans and animals. I have been doing this for over 15 years with great pleasure and dedication.
I make the realistic portraits based on a photo. I strive to capture the unique personality of the person or the pet in a realistic style that conveys more emotion than a photo. Many of my portraits have a simple background, so that all the focus is on the portrait.
The choice of technique, the background and the format determine the creation of an attractive portrait. I make the portraits in pastel as well as in oil paint. Besides making portraits I paint Christmas balls with portraits of pets, dogs, cats, and people on commission. Furthermore, on request I make any desired subject of, for example, landscapes, birds, abstract and vehicles. The materials I use for this are oil paint, acrylic paint, pastel chalk and colored pencil.
Would you like to have a portrait made or do you have any questions about the website?

I gave the birthday present and it has been super well received.
Nice to see the portrait on your site.
Thank you again for the great drawing. Great how beautifully you draw portraits in pastel.
My husband received a present for his 60th birthday that he still looks at every day with great pleasure and that are 3 beautiful portraits of our treasures of grandchildren drawn by you ...
Thank you again for your wonderful work.
A while ago I received this special assignment. The client wanted a nice memory for the wall of her cat who recently passed away. She wanted to have a pastel drawing made on a big size of 70x90cm. The photo shows the sofa with cushions, but she preferred not to have them added. I omitted in the drawing. The background has been kept neutral, which you also see a lot in my portrait works. The drawing is framed with a nice wooden frame.
Work in progress
The photo above gives a better idea of how large the portraits are drawn
A few weeks ago I showed some painted Christmas balls with cat portraits in my blog. Each animal portrait is hand painted on a ball. For this I only need a clear photo of the pet. Meanwhile, the dogs Borra and Estelle have also been immortalized on a Christmas ball.
