Pet Portrait Artist Commissions by Melanie & Nicholas

A Very Warm Welcome! My name is Melanie and I work alongside my husband Nicholas in our beautiful Art Studio nestled in our woodland garden in the UK. We are professionally trained pet portrait artists with 24 years of experience. We provide high end pet portraits of dogs, cats and horses based on clients' own photographs in Oils and Pencil. Our work is traditionally hand painted and drawn for clients worldwide. You can be confident that we can provide a portrait and level of service both you and your pet deserve.

Hello Melanie and Nicholas!!!
It would be impossible to convey to you my complete happiness, awe and gratitude for the truly magnificent oil painting my husband, Kevin, gave me for my 50th birthday. It not only captures my beloved dachshunds perfectly, but our home as well. Now I know that my dogs will live forever and this time in my life has been captured so beautifully.

It's SO beautiful!! I am truly in awe of your talent, Nicholas, and so incredibly grateful to you for doing this work of art for me. I still can't believe it's mine and was made for me. It will be an heirloom for our children as it portrays our home and precious pets so perfectly.
Thank you!!!
Kris Fitzpatrick
