Professional  Animal Artist based in Clacton-On-Sea, Essex, UK

I specialise in Horse, Dog and Cat Pastel Portraits and Paintings. 

“Having a passion for horses since childhood, I have a compulsive desire to paint them. I'm inspired by the graceful shapes that they create and I see a whole variety of colours in their coats. Having owned several horses and competed in dressage I understand the conformation and movement which gives a horse its character and gracefulness”

I also paint dogs and cats and have created many commissioned pet portrait pieces for many satisfied clients. I pride myself on getting the best likeness and capturing the spirit of the animal. I have limited availability for commissioned pet portraits, please contact me for further details. 

Horse Paintings and Dog Paintings for sale. Pastel and oil paintings for sale. 

I have sold many horse dog and cat paintings over the years and have had work re-sold on through fine art galleries. I now usually sell through online galleries and you can purchase my work either through my galleries on Artfinder, Art2Arts or 

I've owned dogs in the past and several horses on and off over the years and specialised and competed in dressage, so I understand the anatomy and the importance of conformation of horses well, so I can portray the subject faithfully. 

There are many occasions where a pastel portrait of your dog, horse or cat would be a fabulous and unique purchase. I have painted dog portraits for Birthdays gifts, Christmas gifts, Weddings gifts, and as tribute to a dearly loved and lost pets, or just simply as a gift from loving pet owners to themselves! In fact you don't really even need a reason to have your best fur friend's handsome face immortalised in an artwork – just treat yourself! 


I have happy and satisfied clients who have come back again and again many times over the years for me to paint their recently passed away pet and/or their latest beloved dog. They have searched me down for dog, horse and cat portraits when I have moved house, and even when I got married and changed name! They know I pride myself on getting a very good likeness of the looks, character and spirit of their dog, horse or cat.
