Watercolour & Coloured Pencil
Watercolour & ink
I create pet and wildlife portraits in a variety of mixed medias such as watercolour, ink, pencil and coloured pencil. All artwork is painted or drawn on high quality paper.
I love capturing the fantastic personalities of each pet through my
artwork. To do so I would like to know more about your pet, do they
have any funny traits, special markings? Do they guard the top of the
garden from the ducks? Or is that just mine? Haha, Whatever it is let
I don’t restrict myself to just cats and dogs so whatever your pet is, it
is more than welcome.

I know how difficult it is to get even a half decent photograph of your pet. They never sit still for long enough. So here are a few tips I’ve picked up for that perfect photo.
You need a good close up to make sure you get those all important
details, maybe even capturing that cheeky, mischievous look they
Natural lighting is perfect so take your pet outside with the sun behind
This is always a two man job so have one savvy camera person and
another person by their side with treats, a favourite toy anything that
will grab your pets attention.
If you don’t want the collar on the artwork make sure you take it off
for the photograph.
Take a few photos at slightly different angles of both sides of your pet.
So hopefully you will have a few photographs that would be suitable for the portrait. Make sure you choose a photograph that shows off their personality.
