I have been establishing myself as an accomplished and successful pet portrait artist for several years. I create visually stunning and realistic art pieces of animals with the use of lightfast coloured pencils of various industry standard brands, on professional quality paper. My style and creativity has been honed with years of self-taught practice.

All of my pieces are drawn free-hand, where I use your treasured photographs in order to depict a detailed and vibrant representation of your furry friends - timeless classics that can take pride of place in your home. I have had experience of drawing pets that are still with us and pets that have sadly passed to the rainbow bridge. The utmost care and attention is taken in all commissions, I pride myself on giving a personal touch to all of my pieces, having consultations with the customer at every stage of the process to deliver the best in quality and value.

My portraits are based on a true likeness of your pets, incorporating a sense of their personality and spirit. I love to give my clients more than what a photo can provide by using my own style, this makes my work more personal and a treasured one of a kind portrait for you.

A gallery of my artwork that has been skillfully framed by my local framer.

Selecting framing for your piece of art is a very personal choice. I work very closely with my clients and Framer to ensure you will get the best combination that will bring out the best in the portrait I have created for you.

When you choose to order framing I will take your portrait to my framers and put together a selection of frames and mounts.

If you have an idea of what you would like please let me know, or if you're unsure my framer and I will put some ideas together like shown in the photos below. This way you can select which one you like best.
