I aim to capture the 'essence' of every animal, with as much detail as possible. This is achieved by a careful layering of colour and structure. My paintings are displayed on here with the reference photograph, please click on each painting to view them side by side.

Every animal is different, even within the same breed. Each painting is a totally unique piece of original art. When I have seen your photograph I can make recommendations on size and price, before then I can only advise what you might be best choosing

Unless you choose black and white, paintings are full colour with a blurred background and unframed

I specialise in single animal head and shoulder portraits, devoting the whole portrait space to their lovely 'essence'.

It is, however, possible for me to combine photographs of different animals, in one portrait if preferred. Please bear in mind this will mean a much larger painting
