Pet portraits

We love our pets. In fact, we are rather obsessed with our furry friends. Pets become much loved members of the family. They are pampered with every luxury. We take countless photos of them and the hashtags #pets #dogs #cats  #puppies #kittens are perhaps the most prolifically used on social media. 

I love painting portraits of pets so I was delighted to receive a commission in December to paint a few favourites as Christmas gifts. These portraits are all painted in watercolour on cold press watercolour paper. They were ideally sized to fit into the matt of a ready made 6” x 6” frame, a creating the perfect gift. 

Pet portraits have been commissioned frequently - you can view a few here


I am happy to customise the size and medium to suit, watercolour, watercolour and ink on paper or oils on canvas 
Sometimes the proud owner has been included. One client loved the portrait so much he requested a second one as a gift for the vet who looks after the pet. 

Allow me to introduce Lulu, Sophie, Primrose and Willow.
