Our pets are an important part of our families and hold a special place in our hearts. Whilst they may not be with us forever, a unique artwork, drawn from your photos will live on, helping you celebrate your connection and remind you of your cherished times together.
I strive to capture a sense of your loved ones character and soul, using artist quality, archival materials. I specialise in highly detailed and hand drawn portraits, based on your photos. Portraits make a thoughtful and special gift for your family and friends.
Sizes and Options
Portraits are available in Black and White, or full colour options. Portraits can be individual or multiple pets on one page. Drawings come on A4 and A3 sized paper, making it easy to purchase a frame. Alternatively, I provide a professional framing service at an additional cost.
I require a 50% non refundable deposit upon ordering to confirm your booking. This is payable via direct debit, paypal, credit card. The remainder is paid upon completion of your artwork.
Please be aware that there is generally a 6-8 week wait on orders.
You are welcome to pick up your drawing from my studio or please advise if you require postage and I can provide you an accurate price for this service.

Working so closely from your photographs, it is essential to have a good quality image to ensure that you are happy with your drawing. The better the photo, the better the drawing. The following are some tips to help with capturing the right image.
Try and take photos outside. Natural light is so much better!
If the photo is inside, try to make sure that the image isn't too dark,
Try and fill the image with as much as the animals face as you can. A small photo of your pet in the distance will not have sufficient detail when i zoom in to draw from.
When possible try to take the photo at the same level as your pet rather than looking down at them.
The eyes are key!
Whilst digital cameras are wonderful, they are not necessary. Our phones take excellent photographs if the lighting is right.
Do what you need to do... take 100 photos, and use BRIBES... i mean treats...
