Pet Portraits

As a pet owner and artist, it seemed only natural that I would paint my pets but it wasn’t until I lost my dog Molly to cancer that I turned to my art to help me get over the loss, but also to create something to remember her by.

I studied with Vivien Walters in the UK, learning how to draw animals in pastels and have been painting pet portraits ever since.

All my pet portraits are in pastel, often painted on velour, a very soft smooth textured paper which gives the painting a soft look.
