Your Pets Portrait

I am an animal lover and, happily, in my area the majority of people own a pet, so I can never resist an interaction, often sitting on the ground and chatting at an equal eye level.

I’ve been painting portraits for a while and am continually heart-warmed by the responses when I hand the painting to their mum or dad. It’s a privilege to be able to bring a loved soul to life on the canvas.

Creating portraits is a great way for me to be involved with the characters that are the animal members of our households. It’s also, always, an enjoyable challenge.

I look forward to meeting you and your pet.

Why a Painting?

There are folks who reckon they may as well get a professional photograph taken of their pet, however there is a marked difference between a painting and a photograph. Paintings are tactile, and incredibly life-like if painted well (like, by me). They also convey a warmth and feeling that you can’t experience from a photograph. My portraits and paintings you don’t just look ‘at’, you look ‘into’ them. There is a lot to see.
