A unique gift

An original watercolour painting pet portrait.

We all know pets very quickly become part of the family. What a better way to capture them than in a pet portrait as a unique watercolour painting to hang up with pride.

All I need is a good quality photo of your beloved pet (or pets!) and I will take time to capture them in a beautiful watercolour painting that you can treasure and hang up in pride of place be it in your home, at work or somewhere else special to you. Your pet portrait will be completely bespoke to you and I can include your pet’s name as well if you’d like.

From small pets such as rabbits and hamsters through to cats and dogs, I will capture those beloved faces for you to treasure!

Why not give a pet portrait to a loved one as a gift? Whether their pet is still with us or has recently passed, this could be a gift that will make them smile every time they see it.

What you need to provide

All I need from your good self is…

  • A good quality photo of the pet you would like me to paint I will take time to capture them in a beautiful painting to be treasured and hung in pride of place, be it in the home, at work…Please bear in mind that the better the photo, the better the portrait! I can draw from a selection photos to create a group of pets, no problem.
  • Your text (if you’d like any!)
    The portrait will be completely bespoke to you and I can include a name or a mini message as well if you’d like.

    • When you checkout, please add any text you’d like included in the notes section. If you forget, just send me an email at with your order number and your name with the details. Short and sweet is best!


Choosing a photo(s) to draw from is the foundation for your portrait. Choose photos that really look like the pet you want to capture and that show their personality! The more sharp and clear the photos, the better likeness I will be able to capture for you. Blurry photos are difficult to draw details from.

Perfect for anniversaries, housewarming gifts, birthday gifts, Christmas presents and more! If you are looking for portrait of a person or people, take a look at my other portraits.
