  • Prices above are for an unframed single head and shoulders portrait. Please enquire if you would like to discuss a portrait with more than one subject.

  • Framing can be arranged (I will only post smaller size framed paintings due to potential of damage to the glass).

  • You are  welcome to collect larger sizes from Clacton-On-Sea or Witham Art and Framing Centre.

  • I work in Pastels because I love the effect I get from them, the way I can mix and layer the colours, no drying time and their velvety texture is perfect for animal fur.

  • Unfortunately I can currently only ship to the UK.

  • To commission a portrait I will need a  selection of good clear photograph of your pet, please visit my photography tips page, or if you are within a reasonable distance I can visit and take photographs.

  • Send your photographs by email and we can discuss your requirements. ​

  • I use quality artists materials - Daler Rowney soft pastels, and Pan Pastels on Canson Mi-Teintes Pastel Paper. 

  • Your unframed pastel portrait/painting it will be wrapped in archival glassine paper and shipped in sturdy board and a mailing bag. 

  • Please take your painting to a reputable framer who will mount and frame it accordingly to protect it. 

  • Please do not hang or store your painting in direct sunlight or damp conditions. 

  • Enjoy your painting for many years to come!

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 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.

I've painted single dog portraits, and up to 4 or dog portraits in one painting, but this requires careful planning, if I don't think I can work with your photos then I will say.

I can put 2 or more dogs, horses or cats together in a portrait from different photographs .

For commissioned portraits I always paint in pastels because they are more time efficient, there is no drying time and no varnish is needed but they do require framing with a mount and glass which I can arrange if required.

As with most pet portrait artists, I have a waiting list which varies depending on time of year and demand, but is usually no longer than approximately 10 weeks.
