NEW - £20 Sketches available!!

New for this year, I will now be offering £20 personal, hand drawn sketches!

If you’re looking for a great gift idea then why not consider a personal hand drawn sketch of your dog. These portraits are a much looser style than my detailed pieces but still aim to capture the look and character of your pet.
These are a great Christmas present idea especially if you only have a low quality photo - for example - a photo saved from a friends Facebook page.
For £20 you get;
 A 4” x 6” original, hand drawn sketch of your pet,
Cream or Off white mount,
Frame of your choice (5 options to choose from),
AND postage is included (uk only) 

No need for a deposit either, you can now pay online using a secure paypal system (which also allows you to pay with cards). Please visit my website for more details!

Dog Drawing Timelapse - Pug

Have just uploaded a new timelapse video of Dolly the pug - a commission from earlier this year!
Please check it out and let me know what you
Visit to see more of my work.
This drawing took approximately 25+ hours not including prep time on the image. I normally only work in 45 minute increments as you begin to lose focus on the details and can start making mistakes. It means the drawing takes longer to create but it is worth it in the long run.
If you have any other questions please ask away!

All About Dogs - Norfolk Showground

For once, it was blanket sunshine over the August bank holiday weekend and we were back at the Norfolk showground for the All About Dogs show.
It was great to be able to return this year and with a much improved stall!
We saw lots of wonderful dogs (and their owners) and had a great time chatting about my portraits with lots of interest - especially for Christmas!

Our favourite visitor of the weekend though was definitely the lovely Dolly who you may recognise as she had her portrait done by me earlier in the year.

Here are just a few more photos that we took over the weekend. If you did come and see me and have any questions about commissioning a portrait please send me an email or use the contact page.

Wells Community Hospital Trust Dog Show

Another fantastic day to have a stall - this time we were up in South Creake at Creake Abbey for the Wells Community Hospital Trust Dog Show. We loved meeting all the gorgeous dogs (and their owners) especially our oldest and youngest visitor - pictured below! Gem is 14 years old and actually took Best In Show (well deserved!) And Peggy is only 6 months!!
