I create beautiful Pet Portraits from photos hand painted of your favourite pets and animals.
I works in a variety of painting mediums that include gouache watercolour, soft pastel, acrylic and oil.
These enable me to capture pet portraits in fine detail with a rich use of colour, giving a tremendous amount of realism.

I have been a Pet Artist painting quality pet portraits for over 30 years. Along with my husband John we also have a Bespoke Picture Framing Service in Exton in Rutland, the smallest county in the United Kingdom.
I was born in Harrogate in North Yorkshire and started my career as a Pet Artist painting Pet Portraits on my father's Farm, at Cold Overton near Melton Mowbray, Leicestershire, after leaving Loughborough Art College in 1984.
I have a long history of artists in my family line. My mother studied at the Harrogate School of Art. In the second World War she was a red cross nurse and she sketched and painted many scenes from that era and time depicting the life and activities of ordinary people at their workplace i.e. nursing, fire service, trams and dockyard scenes etc.
I love painting pet portraits & I am very passionate about my work. My aim is to achieve the best quality pet portraits that have a realistic likeness to your animal. I have been commissioned from all over the UK and many commissions abroad. I am very happy to take on international commissions and have recently shipped four paintings paintings to Alaska..
I was once commissioned by Sir Henry Tate to paint the Cottesmore Hunt opening meet at Preston Lodge. I am also an accomplished architectural, landscape and floral painter.
If you like my style of work and would be interested in a commission, please contact me on 07884 198748, or via the online contact form.
