I love animals and I also love doing portraits, so these artworks are a firm favourite for me. I especially love to try and capture the personality of the animal. I find that the eyes often set the expression and tone for the whole artwork, as well as the provide insight into an individual’s personality and character, and so I will often create many (many!) different eyes until I can feel the animal coming to life.

I have done a range of portraits, from pets to birds and wild animals (please also see the wildlife gallery), and I’m always up for a new challenge…. So please let me know if you’d like to commission a portrait.
