Animal Portrait Artist
A childhood dream to become an animal portrait artist is now reality. Everyday I think how privileged I am to create these portraits which show the love felt for someone special in our lives.
I graduated from Loughborough College of Art where I first started using gouache, and ever since have been developing techniques in gouache and acrylic which help bring out the layers of colour and textures in all kinds of animals. After graduation I designed for over 10 years within the textiles industry where I always steered towards designs which included birds and animals. It was no surprise to everyone around me that I eventually switched to painting portraits and taking on commissions for both people portraits and animal portraits.
Today, I welcome commissions of all animals, and specialise in dog and horse portraiture. My work has been sold across Europe and America, and I have illustrations used by Liberty’s, The Medici Society and Buckingham Fine Art.
