Coloured Pencil Pet Portraits and Wildlife Art

I bring coloured pencil to paper, to create lifelike animal portraits. My drawings are highly detailed, in which I strive to capture every single stroke of hair.


Living in an area of outstanding natural beauty, is my inspiration. I want to bring the outside in. Living with beautiful wildlife that contribute to the natural world, helps us reconnect with nature inside.

The sense of love and meaning animals bring to our everyday lives, is something I want to portray in my drawings. My ambition is to capture the personalities of your beloved pets and express this in my portraits, so that the connection is there, every time you see it.


I create unique and realistic portraits of animals, using lightfast coloured pencils of various brands on professional quality paper.
