Ms Singleton's service and politeness was incredible. A very friendly and professional vendor. The guinea pig arrived ridiculously fast in very good condition and she even wrapped the little guy in a gift box for me! It was a Christmas gift for my partner as he loves guinea pigs. He was ecstatic! Thank you again for your amazing work :)

I loved my hand painted bauble! It will remain a very special part of my xmas tree for years to come to symbolize my precious dog munki! Thank you for doing such a goof job and putting in the extra time; it shows :)

Self taught artist and mad, crazy animal lover

I would love to start off my story by telling you all about graduating from art college and then having my work hanging in numerous galleries, but alas that is not the way it goes. I am a self taught artist, no diplomas or awards, just a great love of animals and painting them. I started drawing at a young age (a long, long time ago). As an only child I had a lot of spare time so I would lock myself away in my room with a pencil and piece of charcoal and draw on anything I could find. I still have a lion that I sketched on a big piece of brown wrapping paper that I salvaged from the bin!

I have been painting for many years now but only started painting river rocks a few years ago. I love the 3D effect you can get when you paint an animal on a rock - they seem to come to life. I buy all my rocks at a local landscaping supplier and can often be found climbing the mounds of rocks waiting for a guinea pig, turtle, penguin or some other critter to call out to me. I paint lots of different animals on rocks and do custom painting to turn pets into "Rock Stars". I also paint traditional pet portraits on acrylic board. Animals have so much soul and character and I try to depict that in my painting.

I enjoy many types of art and my latest project is 3D Resin Art. The technique has apparently been around for centuries and involves a long process of painting on layers of resin to build up art pieces with a perception of depth and realism. You can view my 3D resin artwork on my website

Thanks for taking the time to meet me. I hope you enjoy my work as much as I enjoy creating it.

    I love to paint animals, especially on river rocks - the 3D effect of the rock seems to bring them to life.
