Ordering your portrait


Pet Portraits for 2020 are open. Please get in contact as I am only accepting a limited number. 

My ambition is for my drawings to project the love and warmth you have for your pet. I create this work for you to fall in love again. My eye for detail, focus, and dedication are all centred around my core belief of customer satisfaction. It is my aim to provide you with a piece of artwork that makes you feel all of the same beautiful feelings that your pet brings you.

I use white acid free 300gsm water colour paper and professional grade colour pencil (Faber Castell, Prismacolor & Derwent). Materials that ensure your drawing lasts for years of enjoyment.

Turn around time is between 4  - 8 weeks
