The Pencil Portrait of Moo the Cocker Spaniel

Tracy, a returning client, commissioned me to draw her beautiful cocker spaniel called Moo. They are one of my favourite breeds to portray and i thoroughly enjoyed drawing her. Tracey had our local framer frame the drawing and visited our studio to collect the completed portrait. We took the opportunity to take some photos of myself, Tracey and Moo with the portrait.

Teasel's Portrait

In 2016 Paula commissioned me to draw Teasel, who had sadly passed away. She was just so beautiful and her eyes were wonderful to portray. Paula was thrilled with her portrait and said it felt it was like having Teasel back with her, which is just amazing. You can read a snippet from one of Paula's emails below.

The Portrait of Daisy

Pet Portraits

It is important to view the photo and compare it to the artwork to see that I am able to capture not just any pet - but the pet in the photograph - or your pet as an individual character. I have had many happy clients over the 20 years I have been a commissioning artist.View prices »


Tibetan Terrier Hollie

One of my first portraits of 2016 was of a gorgeous Tibetan Terrier called Hollie. I absolutely loved every minute of drawing Hollie as I also have a Tibetan Terrier and I could see so much identifiable character in Hollie, which was similar to my own dog Lily. Hollie was very well received and presented to the recipient as a surprise. I hope that it will be an ever lasting memory of their very best friend.
