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!
Sparky the Border Terrier
Sparky is the shop dog at the cafe and grooming salon I work at part time.
He is now 14 and still as sparky as always! His owner Ruth still brings him into the shop on occasion where he makes sure the staff are all working hard and keeping him topped up with treats.
I truly loved painting this old man as he is a dog very close to my heart.

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.
