About Me

One of my first memories is my grandmother’s old English sheepdog, Tramp, sitting by the fire at her house in Lower Slaughter. I thought he was enormous and beautiful. I love dogs and I love drawing them.

I am very happy to have the portraits mounted and framed for you, please ask for a quote.

Please get in touch if you would like to discuss a commission or have any questions. Discussing dogs is one of my favourite things.

“My mother is over the moon, she said you have brought Bella back to life again, she is so happy, thank you”.

— Stephanie H-B

“A huge thank you to Radio H-P for introducing Mouse. She is the most brilliant portrait painter of dogs I commissioned her to draw my husband’s black Labrador for a Christmas present and he was over the moon. She gets into the soul of the animal and completely captures the dog’s character.”

— Fiona

Dog Portraits

I use coloured charcoals and pastels on coloured paper, generally a neutral tone or pale grey depending on the hair colour of the subject.

To capture the quiddity and character of the dog nothing is better than meeting nose to nose. A dog is as individual as a person, with a distinct personality that would be harder (but not impossible) to transfer to paper without first hand experience. It is the difference between a picture of a dog and a portrait of the person under the fur.

We spend some of the year with family abroad; lots of high quality photographs are essential so that I can draw wherever we are. I prefer to take the photographs myself (where possible, I live in Wiltshire) but if this isn’t possible, videos of the dog in his/her element are also very helpful in addition to photos.
