FergieFergie – oil on Canvas Board

Taken from a beautiful photograph supplied by the owners.  No need for any tweaking on this one, I didn’t have to change a thing.

this group of paintings were the final pieces I had to submit for my Pet Portraiture Diploma.  A big thanks you to Mary Gray for the loan of her fantastic photos.  You be pleased to know I passed with Distinctions.


BertBert – Soft Pastel on Velour Paper


BarneyBarney – Coloured Pencil on white Cartridge Paper

Barney holds a special place in my heart and is still one of my favourite pictures.  He has pride of place on my business cards.  A reminder of days gone by when my children were small and played ball with him in a friends garden.

Cleo and Jay


Cleo and Jay – Oil on Canvas Board

This painting almost never happened.  It was painted as a gift for a special landmark birthday.  Unfortunately Cleo, on the left, passed away a few days after the photographs for this picture were taken.  RIP old girl.
