Welcome...I am an artist based in St Albans with a soft spot for dogs. I produce painted and drawn dog portraits specialising in acrylic on canvas and blacklead pencil. Working directly from your favourite pet photograph I can create a one off painting or drawing of your dog which is something special that can be treasured.
Acrylic on canvas dog portrait paintings
I grew up with two dogs and a cat and many members of my family have one or more. They soon become part of the family with their different personalities and individual quirks. When I'm working on a portrait I am very conscious of how much your pet means to you and how attached you can get, and although I work from a photograph I hope the way I use paint and pencil to create the original work of art brings out the character of your dog.

'Thanks so much for the wonderful painting of my dog, Milly. Not only have you captured Milly's personality (amazingly just from a photo) there has also been such care taken to the detail.' (Surrey)
'I have just received my painting of my Grans pet dog Charlie ( better known as Moonbeam!.....whom I was incredibly fond of!) When I opened up the package I was immediately struck by the clear likeness of the painting. Liz had captured his look so well.' (Manchester)
'The pictures are stunning and I'm absolutely thrilled.' (Cheshire)
