We came across Berna through a search on the internet. After very clear email contact, Berna sent us a draft. We agreed and we were very surprised with the beautiful end result. Really very bizarre, how beautiful the pastel drawing of our dog has become! Hugely happy! And also delivered quickly.

Hi Berna,
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.

Regards, Rick 



Hello Berna,
When my husband received his present he was speechless, he found it so beautiful.
Our grandsons, 2 and 3 years old, also said oh that's Indy right away.
So thank you again, it will get a special place in our living room.

Kind regards Anice (and Frank)



I am so very happy with this drawing in pastel. It was my last trip with Girly and Pablo to Austria together. It is really amazing how you have drawn every detail, no matter how small. Thanks Berna for another beautiful painting.




Berna has portrayed our 3 cats. And what a fantastic result! Like looking at a picture. Beautifully detailed and especially the eyes are very expressive and bring the drawing to life.
We have a beautiful work of art hanging on the wall that we enjoy every day. Berna is a real ART artist, a sweet, caring and passionate woman!

Hello Berna,
I received the painting of our Sam for my birthday through my sister-in-law, Linda.
We had to put our Sam to sleep on Christmas Day and that is why the painting you made of him is very special to us.
You have put it in a striking way and we recognize it out of thousands.
Thank you very much for making this special portrait of Sam.




Dear Berna,
We have now received the Christmas ball with Gino on it. My girlfriend was moved to tears. He has become really beautiful.
Thanks for everything and maybe see you soon!



Hello Mrs. Lamers,
What a very beautiful drawing! Incredibly beautifully detailed and I recognized him immediately. Thank you for the time and effort you have put into this. I am very happy with it.




Dear Berna
As soon as we met you, we knew you have great capabilities.
We admired your work during one of your exhibitions and everything showed your excellent sense of detail, which is especially appealing in the images of loved ones.
We did not hesitate for a moment and immediately asked you to make a pastel drawing of our deceased dog Witchie.
The result is beautiful and therefore has a place of honor as shown in the accompanying photo.
All credit to Berna.

Herman and Linda Lucas



Dear Berna,
I received the christmas ball! Wow wow wow fantastic! I am absolutely baffled!!!
Thank you.

Kind regards,
Vanessa (Switzerland)



Dear Berna,
May I thank you again very much, also on behalf of my husband, for the beautiful Christmas bauble with our grandson on it, Denzel. Beautifully done.
Also 2 very happy parents, they were very wise with it. Highly recommended for anyone who has grandchildren. I also saw the pets you painted, very beautiful.

Margriet Giel.



Hi Berna,
My brother and sister-in-law were super enthusiastic and very happy with the painting.

Greetings Gerda



Hi Berna,
We have received the drawing, wonderful.
My husband is happy with it and that on Animals Day!
Thank you.

Regards, Carin



Made in 2016.
From our sweet cats by Berna.
Very nicely made we are very happy with it.

Gr Eef and Anita



Every week when the Rembrand program is on television I think of you! Why don't you participate? In the meantime I have already had five “Lamers” paintings drawn. Panther, Loes, Moor, Droppie, Winnie, Vlekkie and Snuitje look at me every day. No photo can beat that. You can draw them so aptly in character. Class.

Dear greetings Ellie


I came into contact with Berna Lamers through Facebook. As a gift I wanted to have my 4 dogs (of which 2 have died) on a Christmas ball. Berna did this amazingly well. The individual characters of each dog are captured on each of the baubeles. A wonderful result!

Conny Hendriks



Years ago, Berna already drew my dog ​​Lucky, a fond and lasting memory of my first dog.

This drawing is still so beautiful and striking that I did not hesitate for a moment to have my 2 current dogs Zoë and Timmie portrayed as well. And yes, they are striking again!And now I also have Zoë on a Christmas ball…. And again she seems to speak!!!
If I manage to take a nice picture of Timmie (he doesn't want to be in the picture so nice haha) he will also go on a Christmas ball….

I can really recommend you wholeheartedly, what beautiful portraits you make ?

Greetings, Alexandra



What a surprise. Received the beautiful drawing today. And made so super fast too.
I am going to give this drawing to my caregiver. Just a nice frame around it, so she can hang it on the wall.



Hi Berna,
Here the promised message!
My husband is very happy with it, he loves it!!
And it also looks very nice in the room.
Thank you again!!

Kind regards, fam. De Rooij



Hi Berna,
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.

Greetings, Claudia


I came across Berna's beautiful work a few years ago..
I asked her to make 2 portrait drawings of my dachshunds.
In one word beautiful!! 2 years ago she also painted my dachshunds on Christmas balls for me. They shine on the table at Christmas!
She has now also drawn a portrait of my father on paper for me.
I find her work great, what a talent!




I found you by chance and when I looked at your work I was immediately convinced. You had to draw my Max. How special how similar you have drawn it in pastel! Really Max. I still enjoy looking at this painting every day.



How does it work?

Submite photos
I make the portrait on basis of a clear photo. It is very important that the photo is sharp and has the highest possible resolution. When your pet or loved one has passed away and you do not have nice clear photos, I will see if it is possible to make a nice similar portrait. Please send one or preferably several photos so that I have a good image of the pet or person.

Before I start on your portrait, we discuss your wishes for the portrait, such as choice of material, size and background color. During the process I will regularly send you photos.

Payment and delivery
Your assignment will be placed after a deposit of 10%. If you want the portrait for a specific date, please contact me in time. The average delivery time is 3 to 5 weeks. 

The remaining amount will be paid if you are completely satisfied with the portrait.  After receipt of payment, it will be carefully packaged and shipped by registered and insured.



A portrait drawing or painting


I work exclusively with professional drawing and painting materials. You can order a portrait in pastel, oil or acrylic paint. With each technique the portrait is built up in layers, which gives it more depth. The end result is a beautiful realistic portrait.



Pastel portraits will be made on special pastel paper with pastel chalk, pencils and conté. I draw portraits in colour, black and white and sepia (brown tones).When the portrait is ready, it is fixed with pastel spray. Because a pastel drawing is very fragile, it should be framed behind glass.


Oil portraits will be made exclusively with oil paint on a linen canvas. Each layer of oil paint needs a few days to dry. The delivery time is on average 2 to 3 months including varnish.



Acrylic portraits are painted with acrylic paint. You can have an acrylic portrait painted on a canvas or on 300 grams of prepared paper. A portrait painted on canvas is provided with a varnish layer upon delivery. A portrait painted on paper needs to be framed behind glass. 



Hand-painted Christmas balls are made of high-quality plastic with a diameter of 15 cm.
The portrait is carefully painted on a Christmas bauble with acrylic paint.

Realistic Portraits

Hello, my name is Berna Lamers. Drawing, painting and animals have been my greatest passion since childhood. I started in 2004 with portraying people and pets. I work with different techniques in a realistic style. It is always a beautiful moment when I have been able to capture the soul of the person or pet in the portrait. Details like the look in the eyes and the attitude say so much about the character. Every portrait has a story and I am very grateful to be able to make it.

All my portraits are hand drawn or painted from photos using only the best materials. You can have a portrait drawn with pastel chalk or painted in oil or acrylic paint in any desired format. I also paint Christmas balls with a portrait or any other desired subject. In addition to commissioned portraits, I also make free work.

Would you like to have a portrait made or do you have any questions? You can then send an email. Together we can discuss your exact wishes and details of the work to be done.
