About The Artist

I have always been a creative person but it wasn’t until a pandemic thrust me into lockdown that I decided to hone in on my love for art. I picked up my pencils in 2020 and I haven’t looked back.

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.

About The Artist

Jean M. Baylis (née Hearsey) born 1950 and educated in London, thoroughly enjoyed painting, with pictures exhibited whilst at school.

Although her heart was always in the countryside and painting, life took her away from that path for many years until fate took a hand. A move to Berkshire, where Jean found two wonderful horses and started long distance riding. A later move to the New Forest / East Dorset border with her family and horses, offered Jean many long hours out in all weathers, riding in the hidden depths of the countryside and over the spectacular Dorset coastline.

In such a natural environment, the artist in her suppressed all those years before, rose to the surface. She saw pictures everywhere she looked, in the dark skies over the sea, in the depths of the forest and in wonderful landscapes. The urge to paint could no longer be ignored. She studied Mixed Media & Visual Techniques City & Guilds at adult education and was referred to study Art & Design at the Art Institute, Bournemouth University, followed by traditional painting methods and life studies at The Prince’s Drawing School, Kensington Palace, London.

Landscape and marine subjects using oil or acrylic media are Jean’s favourite, but occasionally the use of mixed media comes to hand, or pastel, particularly for equestrian subjects. Jean enjoys the spontaneity of working en-plein air, painting what the landscape and weather offer and allowing the atmosphere and paint to create. Her journey of discovery in oil, acrylic, watercolour or pastel are also created at home in her farm studio overlooking grazing fields, on the border of the New Forest.

Art, like life, is a continual learning curve, over which we have no real control. Each mark, thought, word or line adds to, or deviates from the experience on the journey.

About The Artist

Art has been part of my life for as long as I can remember, however it is only in recent years that I have specialised in Animal Art, after retiring from teaching, where I held the position of Art co-ordinator.

My main work is creating pastel portraits from photographs of people’s cats, dogs and horses (or any other pet)! The aim of each portrait is to capture the true character, personality and expression of the pet, enabling people to enjoy and cherish them for a lifetime. The key to capturing your pet is through the eyes. When this is right, the rest follows.

I had the opportunity to go on Safari to Botswana and see the most magnificent animals, first hand, in their natural habitat; such a privilege! Since then I have developed a portfolio of wildlife Animal Art. For this I use Pastels and Graphite pencils, where very fine detail can be achieved.

Art Groups / Exhibitions

I am a member of the Ringwood Art Society, the Society of All Artists and the Society of Equestrian Artists. I have exhibited work locally, in London and in New York. I am also linked to the Worldwide Veterinary Service (WVS). 20% goes to the WVS, when I sell a painting through their organisation.

I accept commissions and am happy to paint any animal. I feel very fortunate to finally be doing what I love.
