soft pastels
Passionate pastelist specializing in true to life animal paintings and pet portraits. Originals and prints available, commissions welcome.

Being a professional artist is not something I ever considered as a possibility. Yet here we are! Some time ago I answered the call to "pick up my pencils and walk" and the rest as they say is history.

My inspiration comes from the living world: shapes and patterns, colours and textures. I strive to capture personality by creating photorealistic animal paintings and pet portraits. Realistic drawing refreshes my love for nature, inspires a sense of awe and wonder in the world around. Concentrating on details helps me to connect deeply with my subjects - I always discover something unexpected!

You can find my original artwork at the links above. Please get in touch to make a purchase or to book a portrait.
