I have been creating pet portraits from photographs since 2002. I take commissions for birthdays and Christmas gifts or for owners to remember their much loved animals. Dogs, cats, horses, birds and other beloved pets have been immortalised on canvas in oil paint, acrylics, pastel or pencil. Portraits of pets can be full body or head and shoulders with plain backgrounds or posing in their favourite spot. My aim is to capture the character of each animal as they all have their own unique and wonderful personalities. Collars, cushions and favourite toys can be included too. These paintings make excellent presents as they are unique, personal gifts. Gift vouchers are available in any amount and prices start from £150 for a small pastel. For sizes and prices see below and for more information on how to start the process, click here...

I always knew it would be beautiful, but it is not until you see it finished that you realise just how much work and care you put into it. You have put your heart and soul into this and it has not gone unnoticed. ‘Thank you’ doesn’t seem to say enough.
— Lesley Suter, Eastergate, West Sussex
A superb picture of Jazy!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!
— Colette & Roger B, Alton, Hampshire
The portrait sits proudly in our kitchen on the main wall and everybody loves it and friends comment on how realistic it is. I am going to ask for a portrait of my daughter’s horse at some point.

Just to let you know Rosie arrived safely and what can I say other than I am absolutely delighted - you captured her perfectly! Quite a number of my colleagues saw it, including a few of the doctors - they all know Rosie and were very impressed indeed how you captured her, so let’s hope you get a few orders!! My husband will absolutely LOVE it!! Thank you so much again - I will certainly recommend you to anyone thinking of having a portrait done.

Animal & Pet Portraits in Pencil, Charcoal or Pastel

Prices start from £150 (see price table below).

Click here for more information on how to commission a portrait.

I use artists' quality pastels on high quality acid free pastel paper which can be cut to any size. The price table indicates a few standard sizes so please contact me to discuss other shapes and sizes. Finished pastel portraits need to be protected behind glass with a spacer between the mount and the portrait. They can either be posted unframed or I can arrange a full framing service.

Oh my goodness! It is amazing, brought a tear to my eye! Thank you so much, I am thrilled.

He’s so lifelike it made me cry. It’s my Titus to a “T” - his soulful eyes follow me round the room, I love it!

Animal & Pet Portraits in Watercolour or Acrylic Paints

Prices start from £225 (see price table below).

Click here for more information on how to commission a portrait.

I only use artists' quality paints on high quality acid free watercolour paper, stretched box canvases or canvas panels. Finished watercolour paintings are traditionally framed with a mount behind glass. Acrylics can be framed glazed or unglazed, usually without a mount. Box canvases can be hung straight on the wall and cost more initially, depending on the size, but you save on framing. The price table indicates a few standard sizes so please contact me for other shapes, sizes and costs you may prefer. I post finished portraits for you to frame or can arrange for a full framing service.

Wow, wow, wow, we love her :-) thank you so much. You really are lucky to have such an amazing talent which makes people like us so so happy. It really is like having part of Jess back again.
— Wendy & Allen D, Stevenage, Hertfordshire
The portrait looks fantastic - Poppy already loves looking at it on the computer! Thank you so much.
— Laura D, Brighton, Sussex
