Pencil Pet Portrait Commissions

Are you looking for an artist that ...

  • can draw a true likeness of your pet, so it is instantly recognisable
  • can create a picture that captures your pet's unique expression and character
  • offers a choice of full colour or black and white (graphite) artwork
  • is friendly and easy to work with
  • offers a swift service
  • produces artwork that will last a lifetime (and beyond)
  • and has had work included in prestigious art publications?

I pride myself on all of the above.

Why not check out my testimonials page for comments from past clients to see what they say about the work I have created?

Like you, I am a pet owner, and have been since I was 8 years old. Over the years I have enjoyed living with cats, dogs, rabbits, gerbils, hamsters, rats and even ferrets: many of which have featured in my artwork.

I don't limit my subjects to domesticated animals - British wildlife also finds its way onto my drawing board from time to time, along with creatures from further afield. As a keen wildlife photographer, I try to use my own photos as subjects for these drawings as often as possible. 

Pet photographs

Where possible I like to take my own photos of your pet(s) and am happy to travel within a 20 mile radius of PE28 5LJ (UK) to do this at no extra charge. If you live a little further away I would have to charge travel expenses plus a flat fee.

I may live too far away from you to be able to photograph your pet, but I am happy to work from your own photos to provide a lasting memory for you to hang on your wall.

If your photos include elements that you would rather were not there I can remove these distractions, leaving your pet as the star of the drawing.

I like to create detailed drawings but do remember, however, that I won't be able to do this if the photos you provide are unclear or taken from too far away.

If you have more than one pet it is possible to have two or more photos incorporated into one drawing.  If one of your pets has crossed the Rainbow Bridge but you have a photo that is clear and detailed enough to work from, all is not lost. 

The gallery pages show many previous pencil portraits to give you an idea of my style.
