Beverley Sweetman - Artist
I studied Art, Graphic Design and Illustration for 5 years at Dunstable College, Bedfordshire. The majority of my working life has been spent in Graphic Design and Marketing across a variety of industries.But my real love is the painting & photography of animals
- I am an artist specialising in watercolour and pencil portraits of animals
I produce the paintings in various sizes and work from a photograph.
Check out my website for more details. www.beverleysweetman.co.uk
My paintings take many hours to produce, I won’t rush them or cut corners as the finished painting is something I pride myself in. My aim is to produce the best possible portrait for you from the image(s) you send to me.
I need ideally a 6 week lead time to create a picture, this could be longer if I have a number of painting as already booked in around the period you request your painting for.
I am currently taking bookings Christmas, a deposit of £15 will secure the booking in my diary. Prices start from £100
Finally thank you for viewing my work, I am happy to answer your enquiries so please do get in touch or see 'how to commission a portrait'
“When I first stumbled upon Beverley’s stall at a crafts fair a few years ago, I had no idea just how much her artwork would come to mean to my family. Since losing our two beautiful labradors, the house had never felt the same. The commissions for Monty and Bernard are not only incredible, but they have also brought them back home to us. Every intricate detail that made them both so special was captured impeccably. Beverley’s work will always have pride of place in our home, where our boys can live on through her art. I am so pleased we were lucky enough to find someone as kind, considerate and incredibly talented as Beverley to commission such sentimental pieces. We would never look anywhere else. We have now built quite a collection and will continue to do so for many years to come. I could not recommend Beverley more highly. ”
“An amazing portrait of a friends dog that means so much to him. Bev has not only captured her likeness but her character. A special present that they will cherish always. I can't thank her enough for her help and updates working from my crude photographs too! Stunning work! ”

“When Sam died I wanted to have a portrait done. Beverley was understanding at an emotional time, easy to do business with but most importantly captured the essence of Sam our much loved border collie. I would recommend her and her work to anyone wanting a portrait of their much loved dog. ”
