Each pet picture is carefully crafted by hand from high quality professional artists materials for best results that will last many generations.


all pet art captures your pets photo showing the likeness and character of your pal in stunning detail from eyes  (which it is said are the windows to the soul ) to nose and mouth giving your pets the unique expressions you love.
your pets coat is drawn or painted as in your picture copying the detailed texture of shadow and highlights and colour that make  your pet unique.


 Great care is taken to ensure accuracy to photo is maintained throughout but please remember that it will look lifeless unless it has the magic of artistic expression given by the artist in every pet portrait work.
  I can create images in three artist medium styles by hand, oil colour on canvas,  colour artists pastels drawings on pastel paper or board, or black and white pencil drawings on textured art paper.


Each of my portraits styles of fine professional pet artwork from an artist with many years experience working to high standards on a tight deadline from clients loved  photographs.


Every animal  painting or drawing is unique and created by hand so you need to provide a good clear photograph that shows all the detail you wish in your special  artwork. 
I need to be able to see all the detail clearly to paint or draw it properly, so fuzzy out of focus pictures will not give the good results you would be expecting and I need to see all photos to ensure they are suitable to produce an artwork of high standard that you will love in your home.
