Doggy Inspired Illustrations

Hi and Welcome!
I love animals of all kinds, but I admit, dogs are my true love. I have two Old English Sheepdogs Borris 3 and Dougal our baby 12 weeks old. They literally go everywhere with me. They are my inspiration and get me outside every day rain, snow or shine. I am very privileged to live and work by the sea with more than 20 miles of unspoiled coastline at my back door. My home studio overlooks the sea and is idyllic for any artist, I am very lucky.

My doggy illustrations can be found on all kinds of gifts from greeting cards to tea towels, mugs, stationary and prints. Feel free to browse my selection of cards and gifts. If you require a custom doggy illustration just message me. I'm sure I can help.

I accept dog portrait commissions from all over the world. Nowhere is too far. For my hand drawn portraits I use professional artist grade coloured pencil, watercolour and Fabriano Fine Art Paper. I also offer an alternative quirky collage printed on Heavyweight 310gsm Textured Hahnemühle Fine Art Paper.

I work from photographs. If you place an order I will be in contact within 24 hours and provide you with tips on how to take photos of your pet. Photos can be taken with a smart phone once they are in high resolution so you don't need any fancy camera equipment. Just YOUR PET, SOME DAYLIGHT and probably a LARGE CHUNK OF CHEESE! ...both my Old English Sheepdogs, Borris and Dougal will do just about anything for a nice lump of mature cheddar !

Feel free to view some examples of my work and get in touch if you would like to commission a portrait of your lovely pet. Check out my website here

All artwork is original, created from my own drawings and paintings.
