About

When I have a Commission for a Pet Portrait it is usually requested through the love of the subject. It may be they are no longer with us, I am asked to paint puppies/ kittens which is to capture that piece of time. Mostly it is a keepsake, a thank you gift or just a lovely present.

When creating the artwork for pet portraits I use the eyes, I like to find the spirit of the subject my hope then is that this is reflected back when the picture is seen, the reaction when I hand over the art work is all I need to see to know if I have done a good job.

I paint in multi media and on a variety of textures from canvas, card and wood, I can adapt most surfaces to use so its always nice to paint something a little diferent.

This beautiful horse was painted for a Christmas present, 12 x 16 Acrylic and framed with a mount quite a large portrait.

All I need is a selection of photographs to use to be able to capture the spirit of the subject, a few pictures can help me create something more unique than just a copy piece, experience has taught me if I feel the spirit of the subject then the spirit comes through into the painting. Contact me direct by message, email or through facebook, twitter or instagram to discuss your commission.
