Artist, Designer and Part-Time Ninja
I am an animal portrait artist creating commission-based works from your photos.
I work predominantly in artist quality coloured pencils on archival papers.
As well as creating beautiful portraits of your amazing pets, I work as a lighting technician for theatre and TV (hence the ninja reference since I’m always wearing black and running around unseen). I hold a degree in Graphic Design, run a sculpture restoration business, paint miniature gaming models, knit and sew. I hate being bored and I am driven by learning new creative skills so I constantly have multiple diverse projects on the go at any given moment.
As a huge animal lover myself, I love to hear stories about your pets as it helps me to see and better represent their personalities when I am drawing. My favourite pieces to work on are memorial portraits, I know only too well how difficult it is to say goodbye to our animal companions. Having a portrait of them helps to lessen the sense of loss and serves as a reminder of wonderful memories.
Please get in touch as I’d love to hear about your pets and the stories of their antics.
