As any pet lover knows, our furry friends are not just animals - they're family. 
So why not capture their personality and individuality in a bespoke
piece of art?

That's where my pet portraits come in!

Today pet portrait paintings are more popular than ever. 
Whether it is to remember a pet that has passed away or to celebrate a current pet, 
pet paintings make a beautiful and personal addition to any home.

By purchasing a custom pet artwork direct from the artist, 
you can get a one-of-a-kind piece that you will cherish forever.

While some people may think that all pet paintings are created equal, this is simply
not the case.

When people purchase pet paintings from photos they are usually doing so because
they want to capture their pet in its best light. This means that the artist needs to be able to translate
the photo into a work of art that does the pet justice.

Not all artists are able to do this. Some artists may be able to create a technically accurate pet oil painting
but it will lack the soul that is needed to make a truly special piece. Other artists may be able to
capture the essence of the pet but the painting will be far from perfect.

When looking for a pet artist to create a painting you should look for someone who has lots of 
experience with painting animals using traditional materials.

I have many years experience working from photos of pets and you can view a gallery of 
my work here on this website. You can view sample pet portraits and dog portraits that I have created

and get an idea of the realistic style I create for my pet owning  clients .
Once you are confident you like my work, you can go to my contact page and  upload the photo you would 
like painted.
I can then review your photo and let you know if it is suitable to work from.

I will then work my artistic magic and create an authentic oil  painting on canvas by hand you will cherish forever.

you can have portraits of many different pet animals including dogs, cats, birds, rabbits, hamsters, horses, ponies, turtles, tortoises 


Looking for the perfect unique gift for an animal lover in your life ?.

Why not commission me to create a genuine b&w pet drawing from a photo ?

There are many reasons why an artist pet drawing makes a great gift. 
First, it is a highly personalised present that captures the unique likeness 
and personality of a beloved pet.
Second, it is a gift that can be cherished for  years to come.
And third it helps support the artist.

you can find a pencil sample gallery here

When commissioning an artist pencil pet drawing , the first step is to choose a photo that you love. 
This can be a recent photo or an older one  - the important thing is that
it captures the essence of your pet and it contains the detail needed for me to copy.

Once you have selected a photo and I have ok`d it as suitable to work from,
I can then get to work creating your custom drawing. 
This process can take anywhere from a few days to a few weeks, depending on 
the complexity of the piece of artwork.

Once I have completed your drawing on white textured heavy art paper , you will have a uniquely 
personal work of  pencil art portrayed by hand that captures the likeness of your pet photo perfectly.

Hi David,

Just wanted to say how pleased I am with the portrait you did of our dog Charlie.
