Pet portrait. A sleeping dog. By Louise Brook.

Pet Portraits

I have extensive experience in pet portraiture and these commissions remain one of the most rewarding parts of my job. I love working closely with clients to capture the character of their pet in gorgeous detail, creating a work of art which is an everlasting reminder of their precious pet.

I work in coloured pencil, using multiple layers, which gives incredible detail to the fur and features, as well as a fabulous depth of colour. Using one (or more) reference photos, we will work together to capture the perfect pose as well as all of the detail and character which makes your fur baby so unique.

Pet portrait examples and testimonials from my lovely customers are shown below. For full details of how to commission your pet portrait click here.


I also offer a Mini A5 Pet Portrait Option. For just £75 plus postage this is a highly affordable way to commission your own pet portrait or gift one to a friend and family member. For full details of this fabulous package, click here.


Commissions are currently open but slots are limited, so please get in touch to discuss your requirements and timescales.


I'm proud to share some lovely testimonials from my customers. A custom pet portrait is a truly special and unique piece and I'm honoured to have been trusted to draw so many beautiful pets.

Commissioning Your Pet Portrait

From first contact, to selecting the prefect reference photo, right through to completion, I am here to help you every step of the way and ensure that we create the perfect pet portrait. The process is explained in a bit more detail below...

I can't wait to hear your ideas and "meet" your special pets... get in touch here.

Get In Touch!

Let's talk!

I love hearing about your pet, what makes them special, why you are thinking of a pet portrait and your vision for the final piece.

The easiest way to get started is to drop me a message or give me a call! I will talk you through the process and give you complete guidance, as well as a quote, without any obligation to purchase.

Choose Your Photo

Strike a pose!

Or not... you may have the perfect picture of your pet for me to work from, a few photos you can't decide between or lots of photos that aren't quite right. I have extensive experience in working from all kinds of photos and can provide advice and guidance on what will (and will not) work. If necessary I can work from more than one image to get the best possible picture.

Agree specifics

Collaboration time!

One of the most rewarding parts of the process is working closely with you as the customer to design the perfect piece. Together we can agree the size, orientation, paper colour and surface to suit both the piece and your home decor. 

We will also agree timescales... Note that commission slots are always limited and in demand. I anticipate a minimum 6 to 8 week turnaround. 

Progress & Completion

The exciting bit!

As I work on your pet portrait I will send through (a minimum of three) high resolution scans of my work in progress. This will ensure that you are kept updated on progress and can provide feedback throughout. If you have any adjustments to make these can be incorporated (within reason) as I draw. Once the piece is complete a final scan will be provided and final tweaks can be made if necessary.
