If you are looking for a pet portrait service which is a little bit different, you might like what I do. My Pet Studies are sometimes reminiscent of storybook illustrations, or the raw and expressive sketches taken straight from an artists' sketchbook.

 

I work quickly and intuitively, and my aim is to capture expression, movement and texture. My drawings are "Pet Studies" rather than traditional pet portraits, which means they are an artist's impression and interpretation of the photo(s) you provide, focussing more on playfulness and suggestion than realistic detail.

My "Pet Studies" were originally designed to be commissioned as part of a beautiful collection of sketches rather than singular drawings.

 

I feel they are best appreciated like this because they offer a fully rounded exploration of a pet's character, with the potential to show them doing all the things they love - running, playing, sleeping etc.

 

The collection of sketches is also much more effective as a unique and highly personalised gift.

 

So before you settle on a single drawing, take a look at my art packages to see if there is something you might prefer..
