I use the highest quality archival papers and lightfast coloured pencils to create a fine art portrait that will last a lifetime. I really enjoy capturing a true likeness and the unique personality of each treasured pet that I draw. In order to do this I need a very clear, well lit photograph taken in natural light that displays an accurate representation of your pets coat colour and eyes. A good tip is to get down to your subjects eye level and get a helper to rustle a packet behind you! Please see the examples of good reference photos below. Additional photographs are very welcome to give a sense of your pets personality. The better the photograph the better your portrait can be!

To start the process of ordering your own portrait you can contact me through my email address on my contact page or message me via facebook or instagram. Then we can discuss what you would like from your portrait and you can chose a suitable size. Prices are for a plain background or coloured paper.  A guideline to prices can be found below but if you require a different size or a detailed background please get in touch for a personalised quote. If you have a specific date in mind please get in touch early to avoid disappointment as I am booked up months in advance.

We are wishing this week away because we will picking up this adorable little girl Frida on Friday. I'm afraid this account will be full of puppy spam from then on! We have waited a long time for her and are very grateful to @jordan_onthefarm for trusting us with one of Edith's wonderful pups ( I think there's still one girl left if anyone's interested and can offer a 5🌟 home)

All set up for my Pop up stall at the Black Shed. I'll be working on my current portrait while I'm here. Why not grab some refreshments from the lovely Rushlake Green Village Stores while you're here and enjoy watching the world go by on the green

Current #workinprogress. Back to labradors! Totally my comfort zone. I feel I could draw them with my eyes closed 😂

Lucky Nellie and I won an hours behaviour consultation with the lovely Hollie from @allthingsdog121. Well we had an awesome session that flew by as we were nattering about dogs! Hollie seriously knows her stuff and came up with some great little tweaks to help sharpen up Nellie's recall. I can see why she is recommended on every dog Facebook page in Sussex and so booked up! Thank you Hollie! 💕

Posted @withregram • @allthingsdog121 This afternoon we got to meet Nellie for some training.

Nellie's owner won our last competition and a free session was one of the prizes 🎉

It was a really fun and relaxed session and as Nellie doesn't really have any issues we just had a good chat about lots of dog stuff, went over getting a bit more intensity on recall and talked over some other minor stuff Nellie does.

Such a lovely dog with a great drive for training 🐾

Hopefully Roscoe is starting to make a bit more sense now. Mapping out base layers on his chest.

OK so my phone takes truly awful photos but this is the subject of all those colours in yesterday's post. I was delighted to get permission to use this photo of @roscoe.the.red Very challenging photo made even harder by my ridiculous choice to use pastelmat again. Please remind me to stick to Stonehenge paper! He's only about 2 inches square but he's taken hours 🙄😱
