Animal portraits at home
I love painting animals in my London studio. I enjoy trying to capture their personalities, exploring the essence of the animal with paint and mixed media.
Over the last twenty years I have specialized in painting and illustrating animals in a number of different styles and forms, painting everything from family pets to wild animals in the jungles of Africa and Asia. My most recent work includes highly textured animal paintings, in which I aim to capture the sole and personality of each animal with emphasis on depth and character within their fur.
An animal portrait is designed just for you…
Each animal portrait is completely unique and can be designed in your chosen style, colour palette and size. Before starting a painting, I will need clear detailed photographs that display your animals characteristics and in what position you want them painted. If you live near to London, a visit can be arranged, so that I can gain greater insight into the appearance and personality of your much-loved animal.
Capturing the character and beauty of a much loved animal gives me a huge amount of pleasure. As an animal lover I am an avid supporter of the RSPCA and pets, especially cats and dogs play a very large part of my family life at home in London. You will often find them curled up next to me in my studio while I work or fast asleep on my desk!
Staging your Animal Portrait
There are so many ways to paint an animal. A close up of the face or a full body portrait. Perhaps you want a quirky piece where the animal hides at the bottom. The choice is yours. I can paint on any coloured ground so if your favourite is turquoise, then that’s what I will do.
