MEET THE ARTIST
Living in Lancashire with easy access to the coast and Lake District, I draw inspiration for my work from my lifelong love of animals and the great outdoors. I love long walks with my handsome Labrador "Boston".
I'm a UK based professional animal artist specialising in pet portraits, equine art and wildlife art in watercolour, acrylic, coloured pencil drawings, pastel drawings and mixed media paintings.
I'm inspired by my love of animals, nature and the great outdoors. I'm a big animal lover and was brought up with dogs, horses, cats, rabbits and gerbils!. I understand how important it is to capture the spirit and personality of your pet or favourite animal in my work.
I specialise in creating pet portraits and animal art portraits from photographs of a beloved pet or favourite animal. I pride myself in being able to produce a piece of art that you will treasure for decades to come.
I'm very proud to be a member of the Association of Animal Artists and a published contributor in The SAA Paint Magazine.
Whilst many artists prefer to use one medium for their work, I enjoy using different mediums and techniques. I believe this gives me the advantage of being able to choose what I consider to be the best medium for the subject.
My painting "Kung Foo Fighting" won The SAA Group Challenge in December 2021.
I have completed the Great Manchester Run on many occasions raising money for a local animal sanctuary. I'm happy to consider donating paintings to charitable causes for animals.
I hope you enjoy browsing through my work and would love to hear from you if you would like to commission your own painting.
