For as long as I can remember I have always had a passion for animals and drawing, so it was only natural that one day I would combine the two and I am now an animal and pet portrait artist.
I am a true lover of all creatures great and small, and everything about them sparks my interest and inspires me. Whether this is the texture of their fur, feathers or scales, to the way they move or interact with the environment around them. I love that each animal has its own unique personality from a cheeky Terrier, to the sweet and gentle nature of a Shire horse, and I hope my work reflects and celebrates their uniqueness.
The best thing about being a pet portrait artist is, not only do get the opportunity to see so many beautiful pets, but I also get to hear some amazing stories. I learn all about the love, and companionship these amazing animals bring to their owners. Each new portrait comes with a new tail (No pun intended).
If you would like more information on commissions, or about me and my work please feel free to contact me.
My ultimate dream is to keep doing what I am doing, and loving every minute of it. The more I create the more ideas I have. It's like a never ending circle of learning and passion.
Information on events, or exhibitions can be found on my events page.
You can also book an appointment to see me in my studio, by contacting me.
