I am an internationally sought after pastel artist, specializing in pet portraits of animals and wildlife which can be viewed at my other website ‘Sarah Leigh Fine Art’. An original piece of art is a highly precious item to own and will be timeless in you home. This website designed to help you obtain a wonderful tribute to your pet. Pet portraits are my particular specialty and you can find an assortment of dog portraits, cat portraits and horse portraits in my portfolio. If you have a different pet – perhaps a rabbit, a hawk or even a chicken – then don’t worry – I have painted all kinds of pets in the past.
My clients includes customers from abroad as well as those from all corners of the UK and you will find testimonials of my previous pet portrait work on this site. A pet portrait is perhaps the most fitting way to celebrate the influence that the special animal in your life has on everything you do. You may wish to have a pet portrait produced as an original piece of art for your home, or you may prefer to give a portrait as gift to a loved one.
NEW – And if you’re looking for something a bit quirky I’ve recently diversified and produced a series of rainbow watercolour animals which you can view on my Facebook page. This brand new range of work is available as original work, prints, coffee mugs and gift cards. If you are interested in buying an original contact me and the card and mug range can be purchased through my Etsy shop window.
My experience as a pet portrait artist has taught me that pastel is the most appropriate medium for capturing the detail of your pet in a vibrant pet portrait. I work in an assortment of styles in order to suit your personal preferences. The information on this website will help you to choose the best style for your pet portrait as well as providing guidance on the ordering process.
When it comes to my pet portraits, UK customers and those from abroad can be confident that many hours of work have gone into their commission. In order to produce something you are truly delighted with, I aim to keep you involved in the creative process if you wish. If you prefer to wait and see a photograph of the finished product rather than receiving regular updates, this is something I am happy to cater for.
It is common for there to be 6-8 week waiting list for portraits to be completed because they involve many hours of work. Pet portrait artists, UK based or otherwise, tend to be busier around the Christmas period so it is vital that you register your order early in order to avoid disappointment. It is also possible to obtain gift vouchers for a pet portrait as a gift if a last minute commission is not possible.
In order to keep abreast of all news, exclusive offers, competitions and latest additions to my portfolio, visit my dedicated Facebook page, where you may also get the chance to win gift vouchers or even the odd free portrait!
