Pet Portraits

Dog, horse, guinea pig, parrot… whatever pet you have and love, I can draw!

The only thing you need to do is email me a good quality clear picture, with all features visible and preferably with a digital camera as I like to zoom in on detail. It is best to take pictures without a flash to avoid eye reflection and to get down to their level. You are welcome to bring your pet to my home for a photo shoot, or if you live locally I can come and visit your pet in its usual environment. Please email me your pictures and I will sketch up a simple example of the design of portrait for you, then if you are happy I will get to work on your picture!

Portraits are in graphite and charcoal as this is my preferred medium to capture tone and detail. However, I can use coloured pencil and pastel on request.

Wildlife Portraits

Hare, Fox, Rabbit, Owl, Pheasant… whatever you want, I can draw!

The wildlife found in Highland Perthshire has been an inspiration to my work. There is nothing I enjoy more than stepping out with my camera to see what amazing creatures I encounter. The nature and rich abundance of wildlife I am lucky enough to live amongst has presented some unique and often unusual artistic challenges.

Portraits are in graphite and charcoal as this is my preferred medium to capture tone and detail. However, I can use coloured pencil and pastel on request.
