fine art pet portraits by commission
A Very Warm Welcome to our pet portraits commissions in oil & pencil. 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 25 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. We have had many years of experience painting and drawing and you can be confident that we can provide a portrait and level of service both you and your pet deserve.
Visit our Pet Portraits in Oil Gallery to view previously commissioned pet portraits which have been hand painted by Nicholas just like the portrait of Lottie below. All we need is a good quality photo of your pet to work from and we will do the rest. Nicholas will bring your best friend to life on canvas, framed if required, for you to treasure for years to come.
Visit my Pencil Pet Portraits Drawing Gallery to see some of my (Melanie's) pencil drawings including the portrait below. I create original hand drawn portraits for clients all over the world based on your favoruite photos of your pet. I love chatting to my cleints so please feel free to message me via WhatsApp to chat about your requirements, whether its for a pencil drawing or an oil painting. I am here to help!

Melanie and Nicholas,
We’ve just put it up to keep it safe but we need to repair the holes from the other frames and will take some family photos next week when Natalia’s back home. Thanks for giving us such an amazing gift. I can’t stop looking at it. My baby is back with me. So glad I found you 💜❤️💜❤️💜❤️💜
Thanks Melanie! I will never forget your kindness, support and understanding 💜❤️💜
Commission a pet portrait from either myself, Melanie as a pencil drawing or Nicholas for an oil painting. All we need is your favourite photo and we will do the rest! We can provide you with everything you need. Clients are able to customize their commission down the the last detail and we have plenty of options to suit everyone's taste and budget. Visit our pet portraits prices and contact page and let us know your requirements. You can also WhatsApp us at anytime. The photo below shows five oil paintings Nicholas created for returning clients Harlan Crow and his family.
Our frames are tailor made whose methods combine the very best of traditional techniques and premium materials. This insures that the frames we provide match the quality of our paintings. We do not settle for second best. View a selection in our Pet Portraits Framing Gallery. We also provide Engraved Plaques which work beautifully along side our frames.
Pure genius, talent such as that possessed by Nick and yourself should be treasured. Chester and Minnie have been captured in a way that we could only have hoped for but perhaps never really expected. I wish that you both knew our dogs because only then could you really appreciate how accurately they have been portrayed .I could go on and on but it's easier to simply say 'we're delighted'. I shall be recommending you both to just about everyone with an animal. Perhaps somewhat oddly, I will continue to read your blog even though the pictures are finished. I'd really miss it if I didn't. Carl Cooper
We have a lovely old welsh cottage and studio set in an idyllic rural scene. Clients are always welcome to visit along with their pets to be photographed. The kettle is always on and I love baking, so there's usually some home made cake in the tin. Visit our about us page to find more about both Nicholas and myself, our welsh cottage and garden, along with our art studio and seeing it inside with our art materials too. We hope you enjoy your perusal around our little corner of the world.
We are able to capture, with accuracy, the essence and character of each individual pet and we believe that is what elevates our work above the crowd. I can assure you, you wont regret commissioning a portrait today.
Send us your favourite photo and we will create you a unique, one of a kind portrait, framed if you wish, to your specification...all delivered safely to your door. If you would like to commission a pet portrait from either myself or Nicholas, please drop us an email or message us via WhatsApp at anytime!
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.
