Be inspired for your special gifts and keepsakes, from bespoke pet portraits from photographs to handmade jewellery from your horse’s hair or pet fur. My main aim is to capture the true personality of animals using a mixture of realism and unique art techniques.
Need some guidance in choosing the best reference photograph for your pet portrait? I would love to help you with this through my blog.
I am a self-taught animal artist based in Perthshire, Scotland, with a passion for horses and all other animals from feathery to furry. Growing up in the North East of England, I adored animals, begging my parents to buy a dog or a horse. We started with a goldfish; accidentally won at a country fair, followed by a Syrian hamster, then I never thought I would say it… a Cocker Spaniel puppy, my best friend! When career options came along, I left for the more rural life in Scotland to study Zoology. Now, a laboratory technician as my day job, I look forward to the weekends of using my artistic creativity as well as riding my dream horse, Rhia!
