I am a qualified Fine Art painter with 18 years of experience as an Animal Portrait Painter. Based in Monmouthshire, I teach art part time to adults and have exhibited at galleries in Wales. Over the years I have been commissioned to paint dogs, cats, horses, guinea pigs, rats, rabbits and cows, to name a few.
The aim of my work is to capture not just a likeness from a photograph but the character and essence of an animal: its personality!
My love of animals has gone further than just painting them. I have worked in a local vets and now own my own Border Collie, Jess, as well as two guinea pigs, Bill and Ben. I also go horse riding on a regular basis. All of which I find a brilliant help as reference when painting my portraits.
It is very important to me that customers are happy with the finished painting. Every picture is produced to a very high standard with love and care.
If you like my examples in the gallery and you can provide me with a good clear photograph of your pet, then there is no reason why you shouldn't be totally happy with the finished painting.
Please feel free to contact me and I will be happy to discuss all your requirements.
