I currently live in a town near Bath called Bradford on Avon, renowned for its exceptional beauty, where I am daily inspired by the incredibly rich fauna and flora at my doorstep. I consider myself one of the lucky ones, to be able to live by doing what I love on a daily basis. I am also most grateful to my numerous animal loving clients, as it is they who have made this possible, and I sincerely hope that I have brought them all some moments of happiness, and souvenirs to treasure, in return!
Bear the Golden Retriever
Here is a portrait of Bear, a gorgeous old Golden Retriever who lives in Bradford-on-Avon. He can be spotted walking his owner Eileen all around town!
He's a gentle boy with a heart of gold but might take your fingers off if you're not quick at letting go of the treats! I learnt this photographing him, thus his nick name, "Snappy Croc".

Portrait ordering guide
Taking the photos
In order to create your portrait, I will need good quality photographs that clearly show the animals eyes and hair or fur, and any unique details that make them stand out from others. You'll need to make sure the lighting is good with good contrast showing as much detail as possible. If you would like me to do photography, all I ask is that my travel costs are covered to do so!
What you'll receive
As part of your commission, you'll receive the original artwork to your chosen size and a certificate of authenticity.
How long it takes
I am to complete all commissions within 2-3 weeks although please bear in mind busy periods (such as Christmas) and my availability. I can confirm timings once you have confirmed your requirements!
On confirmation of a commission I ask for a 50% deposit. This can be paid through bank transfer, PayPal or by cheque. Once the portrait is complete and delivered to you, the final 50% is then due.
My pricing starts at £275 for a single subject (e.g. one cat, one dog) and I can produce portraits in a variety of sizes.
For more subjects or for different sizes, please contact me and I'll be happy to give you a bespoke quote. Please note, prices exclude equine subjects. Please contact me for specific prices.
