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!

To start the process of ordering your own portrait you can contact me through 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. A guideline to prices can be found below but if you require a different size, multiple subjects or a larger portrait I can provide you with a personalised quote. Prices are for a plain background. Please ask for a quote if you require a detailed background.

Portraits will be delivered either by hand locally or very well packaged and sent recorded delivery. As an extra service you can chose to have your artwork professionally mounted and framed so it can arrive ready to hang. I can provide photos of suggested framing options for you to choose from.

Here's the finished portrait of the very handsome Sh Ch Belatarr Hercules. Jenny was fortunate enough to win a portait voucher donated by Sheila who is @tobieandtomaz 's mum and myself. It was part of the HWVCGB raffle raising funds for Wire Vizsla rescue. I was delighted to be asked to contribute as I can't bear to think of a single one of this sweet breed being without a happy home. I like to try to fit in at least one charity portrait a year so any nominations for this year's charity would be great!

Really could do with a better phone as it makes it look a bit murky dvd struggles to focus but I hope you like how the Tawny is coming along. Going to try to get the background done today

My current work in progress. This is Jack the cocker who is sadly no longer with us.
Treated myself to the Derwent Drawing pencil set with some of my birthday money. Why did I not know about these pencils before?!! So soft and creamy that they lay over my polychromos when I think I've got no tooth left. And the range of colours is just perfect for any natural subject. Bargain pencils! Love them 😍

I am a complete plonker! I was in such a hurry to get this portrait up to Melton Mowbray in time for Christmas that I completely forgot to scan the final image. So this is just a quick snap on my phone which really doesn't do it justice. There were tears of joy and a booking for a third portrait in the new year.
