Megan Elizabeth - Portrait Artist
Growing up in rural Derbyshire I have always had a love of nature, the countryside and animals. As a child we had farm animals, horses and many, many dogs - but horses were always my life. I could always be found at the stables or out and about on a pony!
My family were very creative and I was always encouraged to spend my time drawing and crafting (clearly I never lost that habit!). I would take my pencils and paper everywhere I went and would fill sketchbook after sketchbook of animals, plants and countryside drawings and paintings.
I now live in a beautiful part of Yorkshire with my boyfriend and our dog, Jess. We are lucky to live right on the edge of a huge expanse of moorland and countryside and I love to explore and find beautiful places to get out into nature.
I love to take inspiration from the wild places and the wildlife around me for my drawings. I adore capturing farm animals and horses as well as people's beloved pets. Capturing the animal's personality and heart is so important to me.
I mostly work in coloured pencils and pastels but I also enjoy trying other mediums from time to time.
Thank you for taking the time to look at my site - have a look around and please get in touch!
Pet Portrait Commissions
Commissioning a pet portrait couldn't be easier! All you need to do is contact me via my contact form below, email or facebook messenger and let me know your requirements. I require a 30% non-refundable booking fee on booking your portrait, with the balance due on completion (Deposits are non refundable except in the unfortunate case where I have to cancel your portrait, whereby I will refund your deposit in full). Timescale to complete each piece depends on the size and complexity but is generally 2 to 3 weeks.
I ask for good quality, clear photographs (digital preferred but happy to work with hard copies). I ask for a few photos of each pet to allow me to get a good feel for their personality, colours and markings. I’m happy to work with poorer quality images if absolutely necessary, but please be aware that I won’t be able to create highly detailed portraits from unclear photos.
