    both my husband and I love Rachael’s portrait of our five fur babies after having three dogs painted previously we knew the quality of her work she didn’t disappoint the portrait is beautiful and will take pride of place in our home once framed we definitely recommend Rachael if anyone is thinking of a pet portrait she is amazing from the initial contact right throughout the process I believe this is the first five dog portrait she has painted and we can’t praise it highly enough thanks Rachael you are so talented five stars is not enough for you

    A really 'pouncy' fox. We have foxes in our garden and see them doing exactly this, love it!

    Really lovely use of colour and texture with the brush strokes. Lovely, very 'hare-like' pose!

    Rachel's work is really lovely, rich but not over vibrant and great detail and texture. This piece looks great framed with a dark grey frame - striking but also restful.

About rachelstockham

Sales 414
On Etsy since 2011

How I got started

I Studied art at Winchester school of art in 1997 where I graduated with a BA honors degree in fine Art During which time I produced a varied body of work which spanned a diverse variety of mediums including installation.

Currently my prefered medium is Watercolor and ink as it enables me to experiment and create spontaneous effects, work loosely and keep my colors fresh and vibrant.

My work is inspired by my love of nature and animals. I recently began painting privately commissioned pet portraits which has been really rewarding and enjoyable,i've loved all the social interaction and feedback.

I often like to combine realism and fantasy and have been inspired by artists such as Fleur Cowles who created improbable landscapes with animals and floral elements. i also find inspiration in folk,primitive and Japanese art.

Welcome to my etsy shop. All my paintings and prints are from my own original work.
I am adding new items as I go so please revisit my site if you like what you see so far.
As well as paintings, prints, cards and handmade gifts, I also do commissions. So far I have done many pet portraits of cats and dogs but will try anything.
I use recyclable or biodegradable packaging as much as possible apart from bubble wrap which can be reused.
