Original Pet Portraits

No daggy caricatures here!

My watercolour pet portraits capture the personality of your faithful fluffy friend.

I use strong colours; adding exaggerated colours and highlights to add energy and spirit to your dogs natural colouring. The result is a modern painting that will show the true joy of your pet.

How does it work?

  • Fill out the form below to request a painting.

  • Once your booking has been accepted, you will be asked to email 5-10 photos of the animal. They must be in good lighting and in focus. I like to see all the angles of the animal’s face, and any markings that are important. If there’s a particular pose or expression you love, make sure you send a photo of it.

  • Want two pets on one painting? Add $100 to the fee*

  • Most paintings take between 2-4 weeks to complete. If you have a special event or date in mind that you need the painting for, you must let me know before booking.

  • I do not start the painting until full payment is received. If the finished portrait is not a good likeness, I’ll change it, repaint it or offer you a full refund. Because of this guarantee, please make sure you let me know if there’s anything in particular that you are expecting (eg. tongue out / left ear drooping / hint of blue / etc)

    Thank you! Lyndsey
