Announcement   If you love animals, music and the arts then this shop is for you! You can commission a portrait of your pets, friends and family, and buy fine art prints. I also offer fun, unique and colourful custom pet portraits and work in several different styles. Licensing enquiries welcome.

I studied at Central St Martins College of Art, London and now work as a freelance artist from my studio in Manchester, UK. All my artwork is drawn by hand, and sometimes finished off with digital media (similar to placing a cherry on icing).

Let me know if there’s something you’d like that’s not in my shop, or if you have a question about licensing my designs. I aim to be as flexible as possible for you.

HOW TO COMMISSION A PORTRAIT
Simply purchase the listing you require and, using the messaging system on Etsy. Then send me some clear photos of your chosen subject(s). The best photos are taken at eye level in natural light, with soft shadows so there are no sharp lines or squinting eyes. If you would like me to add text or a caption (this is popular with pet portraits), or have a preference for background colour don't forget to tell me.

Your unique portrait commission will arrive in the post ASAP, securely packaged and sent by special delivery if this is the shipping method you select.

For licensing enquiries please get in touch.

Spread the joy!

About

Contemporary art, illustration and custom pet portraits

I'm and artist and designer, with a big passion for art, music and animals. This shop started life as an outlet for custom pet portraits. Ever since I began drawing at an early age my style has always been a bit quirky, vividly coloured, and with humour wherever possible (aged 4 I would endlessly draw winking giraffes with pink hair bows - no idea why). I studied in London at Central St Martin's and now live in Manchester, UK.

My other great love in life is music, and if I'm not making art I'll probably be on stage somewhere or recording in the studio. It felt only natural when in 2015 the "Composer" series was born. Both reflect the things I really love.

In between pet portrait commissions I like to experiment. Please check out my art prints, photography, gift voucher options and tea towels, which make great gifts too.

Licensing query? Commissions? Questions?
Please get in touch because I always like to hear from you.

Since I opened my etsy shop in 2014 I've had amazing feedback.
Here are some snippets:

"The portrait arrived this morning, and it is absolutely amazing, you have caught the look of both bunnies brilliantly. We cant thank you enough for such a gorgeous image of our babies, we have your business cards and will be more than happy to recommend you to all our family and friends. You are extremely talented.""Over the moon with my portrait which was a Christmas gift. Super fast delivery and it's such a great likeness of the dogs. Thanks so much."

"Fabulous. Completely blew me away."

"Wonderfully captured the essence of my dog, exceeded my expectations. Safely packaged and delivered surprisingly quickly for a bespoke illustration. Thank you!"

Returns and exchange details

Shipping
I try to send orders on the day of purchase, and custom orders within three days of purchase if I can, but on average it takes 1-2 weeks. If your commission is particularly urgent let me know!

International buyers should bear in mind that there may be customs charges applied at the border when an item enters your own country- customers are responsible for paying these, so it's worth checking beforehand to see what your country's customs policies are (for most countries this isn't an issue unless you are buying lots of items together). I send first class within the UK, and by standard Airmail to the rest of the world (please bear in mind this made take several weeks to arrive). If you'd like your order tracked either select the "shipping upgrade" option or let me know. Bear in mind it's more expensive.

Your artwork will arrive packaged in a cellophane bag with rigid backing for safe delivery.

Please note that prints are printed on very high quality paper using archival ink (i.e. it doesn't fade in the sun). Frames are not included.
