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 all I need is 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. 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!

This idiot 🙄💕....
I'm glutton for punishment because I take this hooligan to work with me. Today I could hear her howling somewhere in the garden. She normally does this when she's shut the wrong side of a gate. Today she got herself stuck inside the compost heap! 😂 😂 😂

Little Jessie is complete
This was a really challenging portrait. Working from 4 reference photos to bring the composition together completely hand drawn from my imagination. These sort of portraits always take so much concentration and a lot more time.
I really enjoyed all the textures in the back ground and although it was daunting I'm really pleased with how she turned out.

🌟Portrait🌟

OK so I missed a couple of days of #marchmeetthemaker2021

Searched my phone to find a photo of me. This was early one morning up on the South Downs this winter with Nellie.

I'm a country girl who grew up on a mixed farm in Sussex.

I've never wanted kids and finally now I'm 40 people have stopped asking me when I'm having them 🤣

I've been a stable girl, laundry worker, herds woman, gardener and cleaner but now I'm proud to call myself an artist at last

I'm currently addicted to Sounds of the 90's with Fearne Cotton on radio 2 on a Friday night. But I find it very hard to draw whilst I'm jiggling away to the music 🤣
