I am a pet and wildlife artist based in Frome, England with my husband and children, two rescue dogs: Rua the Hungarian Vizsla and Ogie the blind terrier, and Jet the cat.
I have been working as a full time artist since 2013, and have fulfilled hundreds of pet portrait commissions. My client base is international, and I ship worldwide for free. My work has been featured in publications such as Dogs Today Magazine, Dogs Monthly, The Guardian, Talented Ladies Club and Country Living Magazine.
I support animal charities whenever I can, by regularly donating art to various rescue group fundraisers, donating 20% of income from prints to various breed specific rescues and providing wildlife rescues and rehabilitations centres with original art to fundraise and create merchandise.
Pastel is the most popular and most commonly ordered medium. It can offer the same level of realism and character as an oil portrait, but takes far less time to complete making it more affordable. When framed safely behind glass or perspex, pastel artwork will last for generations.
Pastel is especially suited to pet portraits, being delicate enough to capture the finest whips of hair, yet possessing enough depth to portray depth of expression in eyes.
Pencil is a beautiful and simple medium to realistically capture a pet’s unique character. Pricing is based on size, but please note the smallest size 6" x 4" is unsuitable for more than one pet.
