Updates

Working hard on Christmas portraits!
Getting there, slowly but surely. sweat_smile
Now available are vitreous enamel brooches / pet portrait miniature pins, in colour! (If you’ve previously had a portrait painted by me, and I took good photos of it, it may be possible to have it miniaturised and fused forever into a piece of jewellery).
I forgot all about shop updates! I’m still here! Lots more examples coming soon as well as enamels smiley

Dog Portraits Uk

The Dog Portraits Uk Story

After leaving art college, at the age of nineteen, I went straight into a full time job as a textile designer, within a fabric converters, designing mattress tickings & duvet covers, where I stayed, very happily, for seventeen fabulous years, creating hundreds of original designs and thousands of colourways.

Then, with the addition of two young children, I decided to become an Arts & Design Technology Technician in a local secondary school.
I had always attended night classes throughout, drawing from life and painting people. But, when a colleague at the school asked me to paint his mother in law's dog, a whole new world opened up, snowballed from there, and became my life’s passion!

I now work just three days a week in the school, term time only, the rest of the time I draw and paint. I love being creative!
Let me paint for you!?

Alternatively, have a look at my recently reopened, other shop: 'EnamelUk'. (This shop fills time in the early evenings when the painting light has gone).
