The first step to order is to contact me via email with your portrait request. We can discuss what you have in mind for your pet portrait and come to an agreement of what will work best. I can then give you an accurate quote. My main mediums are watercolour pencils and graphic pen however I can also work in mediums such as graphite, acrylic and pastel as well so please don't hesitate to ask!
I will ask you to send some high quality pictures of your pet and I also like to hear about their personality and stories that you have to tell about them. I find this really helps to bring their character out in the painting!
I ask for a 50% nonreundable deposit before I begin the artwork and the rest of payment on completion. I will send you an invoice using PayPal.

Hi and welcome to my website! My name is Helen and I am a pet portrait and wildlife artist based in Cambridgeshire.
I have always loved painting and drawing. My grandma was a watercolour artist and I definitely think I get my creativity from her and I would like to think that starting this business would make her proud. I went to university to study art but left in my second year as the contemporary style didn't suit me and just took all of the enjoyment away for me. It took a while to be able to start painting and drawing again but eventually started to and I fell in love again. It is what I am happiest doing.
As well as art, I have a huge passion for animals. I have a part time job working as a dog groomer and I have lots of pets myself. I have a dog called Shelby, a cat called Selina and a rabbit called Hurley. They are my inspiration for my business. I took my love of painting and drawing them and decided to put that love into painting other peoples pets. Now I have a pet portrait business which marries my two passions together. I put the same amount of passion and love into your pets portrait as if it were my own pet.
I mainly work in watercolour creating soft flowing paintings. I love the depth of colours and textures that can be created. I also create striking pen and ink drawings Which can really show a pets character.
Having a unique painting of your pet is a wonderful thing to have in your home. It is such a personal item to be treasured, perfect for yourself or as a gift for any animal lover.
