Celebrate your Pet with Artwork you can treasure……

easel_1Pet Portraits are becoming more and more popular in the UK and we all become so very proud of our amazing pets and want to recognize their value as a family member by showing a portrait in their honour. My portraits are affordable for everyone and available in a variety of sizes for you (if you require a specific size that’s not shown then just email your requirements and I can quote for you).
The artwork is created from your photographs to a professional standard and hopefully will become a cherished item that will be enjoyed for many years.

When considering your pet portrait I have a choice of 3 different mediums to suit different tastes and budgets. Graphite pencil sketch, coloured pencil, detailed watercolour painting and oils. All of these techniques have their own individual attributes.

I work from good quality high res photographs of your pet which you can email or post to me. If you are local then I could come along and take some shots for you at no extra cost. Of course we will discuss preferred backgrounds and compositions prior to me starting so you are totally happy with how your artwork will appear.

Caricatures

GREETING-CARD_1A Caricature print can make a great occasional gift for birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, mothers/fathers day etc. All prints are pencil sketched but finished to a high standard you don’t receive just a linear drawing (coloured versions upon request).

I need as many photographs of the subjects to be used in the prints composition as you can provide. I shall ask questions to get a good understanding of the subjects to be drawn so their personality shines through within the composition. We can discuss what scenario will add the humour to the composition that will best suit them, what antics they get up to or anything amusing that I can focus on when drawing them.

Visit the creative caricatures gallery to view previous examples of caricature prints,
limited edition pen and ink sketches which will be available.

A great Birthday or Christmas PresentFramed-Pebbles_1

A guaranteed winner for a pet owner! A pet portrait for a friend or family member is a fantastic present which is personal and shows great thought. If you are ordering a portrait as a gift then please let me know and I could gift wrap the artwork and include a message card for you at no extra cost.

Also, although we hate to think of our pets passing away when they leave us it can be truly devastating. A portrait in memory of your special friend can provide great comfort to those left grieving, providing a memory that will last for many years.

Gift Certificates

Gift-Cert-Artwork_1If you do have someone with a birthday or special occasion coming up shortly and you can’t get photographs to me in time to complete a portrait for them then don’t worry a gift certificate could be the answer!
Pet Portrait gift certificates are personalised and sent out first class with a welcome pack giving your friend the freedom to contact me when ready to discuss their choice of portrait.
I can also send the certificate to you via email so you may print this off and slot into a greetings card, this enables you to add your own personal message.
