About my Pet Portraits

I aim to capture the individuality and personality of your pet.  I use traditional painting skills to create a realistic likeness. As an animal lover myself, it gives me huge satisfaction to be able to create a lasting memory of a much-loved pet.

Whether you would like a painting of your own dog, cat or horse, etc. or are interested in commissioning a pet portrait as a gift, I paint affordable pet portraits or bespoke illustrations from good quality photographs for your total convenience. I also accept international orders. I will advise you on what sort of reference photographs I need and have provided a guide on how to take and submit these. 

I have been drawing for most of my life and have over fifteen years professional experience in painting custom pet portraits and a BTEC diploma in Fine Art.  It was a fascination with animals that first inspired me to draw as a child, sketching my pet rabbits and dogs and horse from life. Animals continue to be my main inspiration.

I have worked commercially and provided illustrations for Hudson and Middleton’s fine bone china animal mugs.

I paint animals of all shapes, breeds and sizes! Whether you are looking to commission a dog portrait, or a horse portrait, or a prize sheep (it has been known), my pet portraits are available in different sizes and styles, including watercolour illustrations, pen sketches, acrylic, to give you plenty of choice. 

There are so many pet portrait artists to choose from in the UK.  We each have our own style and unique skills. My animal portraits are completely hand drawn or hand painted with great care and observation. I do not use projectors or tracing methods to create the drawing but use careful observation. I work in various media using traditional drawing and painting methods. I take a pride in my work and with conservation in mind, I use only quality materials. You can be sure you are commissioning a unique, lasting, hand drawn piece of animal art if you commission custom animal paintings from me.
