About

I am a portrait and wildlife artist living and working in Bath, Somerset. I started painting and drawing fairly recently after a long career working in an office. I studied for an online diploma in Pet Portraiture through which I tried out different media and found I particularly enjoy working with pastel pencils. I am developing my skills with acrylic paints and I'm still learning and trying out new things.


I draw inspiration from the natural world, wildlife and pets. I started drawing as a child when I had a passion for everything to do with horses, and many years later I still love drawing horses! I use reference photographs to create my portraits, which can be a head study, a whole animal, or a composition of animals against a simple background. I enjoy the challenge of creating a satisfying likeness.


An animal portrait is the perfect way to capture your pet and makes a wonderful gift. I will work from your chosen photographs to capture your pet at their best, in your favourite pose.  Please do contact me to discuss any questions that you may have.
