Hello and thank you for visiting my website

I am a pet and wildlife artist working from my home studio in West Yorkshire.

Since childhood, animals and nature have been my biggest source of enjoyment and inspiration.  I've loved drawing for as long as I can remember so animals and horses in particular, have always been my subject of choice. 

I strongly feel that a house isn't a home without a pet and know just how significant a part of the family they become.


I specialise in creating bespoke, lifelike hand drawn coloured pencil pet and equine portraits, using only the highest quality materials to ensure your portrait stays looking perfect for a lifetime.

When time allows I also enjoy producing wildlife pieces and am happy to take commissions of this nature if required. 


For examples of my work please visit my gallery pages.


I am currently taking bookings for 2020 completion dates.

Left it too late to arrange a present for that special occasion? A gift certificate could be the ideal solution. 




Follow me on Instagram and Facebook for regular 

updates on my current projects. 


Please take a look at the miniatures section of my gallery - new for 2020 and ideal if space or budget is limited. Wildlife pieces being added all the time or commission your own tiny piece.
