I am Mum to two children aged 10 and 7 and who I hope may follow in my footsteps in loving art, not sure they will become pet portrait artists though! I am also owned by my ginger and white cat Murray and my Jack Russell Terrier, Luke. I haven’t painted their portraits yet though. Maybe one day. All the work takes place in my studio in Kent. I am pretty much always in my studio so if you want to come down and see what pet portrait I am working on or you want to view any portraits in the flesh before you proceed with a commission I am more than happy for you to visit. The kettle is always on and I have plenty of biscuits in the cupboard!
I feel very lucky to be able to do my dream job, I have always loved animals and painting so it is pretty much the perfect combination for me being a pet artist. It isn’t only pet portraits I do. I often paint wildlife and have a more contemporary style in my watercolour range. I often attend local shows and fairs where I display these. Don’t forget I can be commissioned to paint any animal, I have even done the odd human portrait too, so don;t hestitate to ask if there is something specific you are looking for. I hope you enjoy browsing my website and portraits.
You can commission you pet portrait in a range of styles. My vibrant, contemporary watercolours are proving very popular and you can view them in this gallery, it is mainly wildlife as it is a new style for me, but I have two commissions in the style lined up so watch this space for the finished paintings.
