"My mom absolutely LOVES the beautiful portrait of Buster, her beloved cat, which I gave her as a gift. Many of the pictures we had of Buster were taken on Mom's old flip phone (think: terrible camera), so not all of them gave a clear picture of his appearance. Leela looked at all our images in detail, picking the ones that really captured his true look. From that, with her attention to detail and artistic skills, she created a portrait that captured him perfectly, right down to his notched ear and unusual colored eyes. I plan to get a portrait of one of my own pets in the future, and I highly recommend this artist to others who are looking for a truly masterful pet portrait."

"I recently had the opportunity to have a Dog Portrait done by Leela Hein of Riley Mica Designs.
We had only one picture left of our beautiful Black Lab, Lager – who passed away in 2002.
We contracted with Leela to do a pastels portrait and it turned out extremely well.
We all feel like it brought our dog back to life – the portrait was so realistic.
Got a lot of rave reviews from my friends on Facebook.
We liked the portrait we had Leela copy it in a smaller version (still an original) for my youngest daughter in New York. It’s at the framers now, and will hang in my office when it is finished.
And I could not have asked for better results. The bonus: Leela was did not have an inventory backup at the time and the whole thing took one week. She is very reasonably priced as well."

"Oh my gosh! I had seen one of Leela’s drawings on a facebook page and had to check out her work! She is an AMAZING artist! Leela turned a picture of my Lexi into the most beautiful piece of art!
Her attention to detail is unparalleled and she captures their personality perfectly! You can see the love she puts into her work!
When my portrait arrived I could not believe how beautiful it was (it actually made me cry)! Lexi looked so real, I felt I could pet her, and her eyes….simply stunning! I am in total AWE of Leela and her talents
and so very happy she is willing to share them with us!
I will definitely be getting my other two girls portraits done soon and
