About The Artist
Animals are a great love of mine and I feel they are the best subject to be entrusted to capture. To me, there is no better feeling than giving someone a piece of art that moves them. Whether cherished pets that are still with you, or have sadly passed, I feel privileged to be able to capture them for you in a forever piece of artwork.
I work solely with coloured pencils because they produce beautifully soft, yet vibrant pieces as well as providing scope for fine details. I work hard to capture every single ounce of character I can see in a subject, giving the client a gift of a moment in time. I take pride in providing quality art at affordable prices, allowing everyone to be able to commemorate the animals that have shaped their lives.
When I’m not drawing, I enjoy taking my dogs on long walks in the beautiful New Forest where I live, which provides me with enormous creative inspiration as well as my daily wildlife fix. I’m also studying graphic design, fashion and textiles which fuels my love of creating and making.
I have been blown away by the attention my artwork has received and I am excited for all my future commissions. My portrait service is not limited to featured breeds and species, so whether it’s your beloved dog you’d like captured in coloured pencil, a guinea pig, snail or your adopted lemur, I’d love to hear from you!
Paper sizes range from 5" x7" to 8" x 10" giving you the choice of a range of sizes that best suits your needs and budget. If you would like a specific size however, please get in touch.
It’s not just pets and pencils here! I can also offer watercolour replicas of baby scans / ultrasounds. They make a perfect gift for new parents, grand parents, as a baby shower present or as a memorial for a baby sadly lost. Prices start from just £15 and I can recreate the scan in any colour you wish! Thank you for visiting.
