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.

Here's the finished scan of Tahira aka Too Too Pops 😊. Isn't it funny the little nick names that we evolve for our pets?! My 3 are more often called Poohsters (Winnie), Sweet Pea or Bells (Nellie) and the most original Squirticles (Frida)!! 😂 What nick names do you have for your pets?

Selecting framing options for Tahira now that she's finished. I use my local professional framer Lee at Frameworks in Hailsham for customers portraits if they would like them to arrive framed. He's just the most helpful lovely guy with tonnes of experience...hence he's always really busy!

Nellies had her winter tidy up 🥰 Thanks to Sam @countrybarndoggrooming for another perfect job. It's so nice that Nellie was delighted to see her. Her groom has revealed a rather wider waist line though since she's been eating Fridas left overs! 😂 More canicross for the both of us as we have a 5k race to do at bedgebury at the end of the month 😱 ...

So Frida is not the baby of the family anymore already! My mum picked up the adorable little Rosie yesterday. She's a wire haired Vizsla x German short haired pointer. She was the result of a silent season apparently! I think they are going to be best buddies 😍

Had a lovely Sunday afternoon working on Tahira. The more I draw of this girl the more I love her. Unusual markings but great fun working out how to recreate them
