Specialising in animal portraits

Ordering a commission is a wonderful way to celebrate a cherished pet or beloved equine, and will be something to treasure forever.

I am animal lover through and through and I think this is reflected in my artwork – my aim is always to work with you to create a truly special piece of art, that fits your style and most importantly, reflects your animal’s unique personality.

Portraits are mounted, but unframed, allowing you or the recipient to select a frame of your choice. I do require very good quality photos (digital if at all possible) to work from – please see the advice below on how to photograph your pet.


Equine/Pet Portraits

The average commission lead time is 6- 8 weeks but is subject to demand during my busiest periods. Please contact me to discuss dates if you are hoping to receive your art for a special day. 

Equine/Pet Baubles

Baubles are painted using professional quality acrylic paints and are treated with two coats of protective varnish.

All baubles are 10cm in diameter. You have a choice of acrylic (gold, silver or white) or premium ceramic (white only).

I do require a good quality photo to work from ideally.

Baubles arrive, ready to hang and with a storage box for safe keeping. 

*A £20 deposit is required for baubles. UK postage for each bauble is £5 (please contact me for overseas postage).


If you would like to purchase a gift voucher for someone special so they can choose their own portrait, or you’d like to share the gift giving with others gift vouchers are available in £25, £50 and £100.  Please contact me to order.


It is really worth taking the time to get the best photo of your pet that you can – the better the photo, the better the end result!

Here are a few tips;

  • You don’t need a professional camera, most mobile phone cameras these days will take a good enough quality photo.
  • Take the photo in good light (outside on a cloudy day, or inside a room with lots of natural daylight).
  • Avoid taking photos in direct sunlight or in a dark room.
  • Take the photo close up, so that the photo has lots of clear detail that I can include in the portrait.
  • Take the photo at pet eye level and make sure their eyes are open.
  • Make sure you don’t crop anything out by mistake (tops of ears etc!).
  • Take several photos and choose the angle or pose you like best (or I am happy to help you choose which will work best). I actually prefer to receive multiple photos as it really helps me to see the animal’s character!
  • Use a little treat, or a favourite toy to get your pet’s attention – it definitely helps!


I do a lot of memorial commissions, where sadly the pet is no longer around and I do appreciate that it might not always be possible to get hold of a really good quality photo. I am always happy to discuss and review the photos you do have available to see if they are suitable to use – there’s almost always a way to work with what you’ve got!
