Pets bring an enormous amount of joy to our lives and are so much more than a furry, scaly or feathered friend – they’re a much-loved member of the family who we create and share memories with.  Which is why I take so much care to capture their spirit and character because when you get your painting I want you to see your pet looking out at you.

Why Commission a Portrait of Your Pet?

It’s the perfect way to capture your pet at their most loveable, loyal or engaging and a beautiful lasting reminder of all the great times you’ve shared together.

Getting a portrait of your special furry friend is a personal thing.  You want to be sure that the artist you have commissioned will capture what you see every day (personality, character and spirit), which is why I take extra care to ensure that happens. 

What Happens Next?

It’s really important that I understand who your pet is, which is why I spend time looking at photos and chatting to you about your furry friend.  I like to get to know them, to feel that your pet is my pet.  That way, I can capture who they really are.

Best birthday present ever

“When I heard Ruth speak about her portraits and saw some examples, I knew a portrait of our dog could be the best birthday present ever for my wife. I wasn’t wrong!
Ruth was brilliant from start to finish. Regularly keeping me updated and checking that I was happy with the progress, and that the finished portrait had the desired effect. My wife burst into tears when she opened the wrapping. I couldn’t recommend Ruth and her portrait service enough!”
