Let me help you capture that beautiful
moment forever...


I use the very best high quality artist paints, with high
pigment and inks together with superior quality exquisite
watercolour paper so that it won't fade but instead will
last a life time.

My style is unique in that I do my very best to capture the
spirit and character of your pet, rather than an exact
photographic likeness.

Working from a clear photograph of your pet or animal,
every piece is lovingly and carefully hand created.

The richness of each piece is built up layer upon layer,
creating a unique quality to the overall image.


Commissioning A Pet Portrait


It begins with a complimentary bespoke consultation, where we can discuss your ideas and I can learn how best to help you.

The most important step is having good clear photographs in focus which is absolutely key.

If you are local, then perhaps I can take the photos, meet your pet and learn about their personality.

In addition, if the commission is of a particular animal, I can offer you a choice of freely-usable images that are licensed free.

I only do a very limited amounts of commissions each year, and booking starts in January and once places are filled the next release dates are around March /April and then August if you wish to receive it for Christmas.

If you are happy to go ahead a non refundable booking fee of 50% of full costs towards art materials and to schedule in to your slot is required.

There is usually a considerable waiting time so it is advisable to book early to schedule in. Time frames would be discussed at time of booking. Once painting is completed, the balance is required prior to despatch.
