Bespoke Pet Portraits


I am an artist creating bespoke pet and animal portraits, based in the Cotswolds. I specialise in watercolour painting, but also like to use gouache and pencil. Most of my pet and animal portraits are done using watercolours and aim to create a good likeness of the animal being painted. I have a variety of dog and cat portraits in my gallery but I am also interested in painting other pets so if your pet is not a dog or a cat I would still be interested in painting or drawing them for you!

Working in watercolours means I can use a variety of techniques to create the image of your pet, I currently work in a very lifelike style capturing the detail in your pets fur and facial features. I have built up good skills in watercolour and continue to improve with every portrait I paint. It is a medium I really enjoy using and exploring. If you want anymore information about pet and animal portraits just get in contact or have a look at the other pages on my site. I also post blogs about pet portraits occasionally, where you can find information on the painting process and tips for things like photographing your pet.

I am available to commission for pet and animal portraits and can post work (unframed) internationally. Just get in touch with any questions you have, I’m happy to answer them.
