Welcome to my website I am a Pet Portrait Artist specialising in pastels, coloured and graphite pencil. I live just outside of York with my husband, three German Shepherds – Meg, Leo and Yogi, Ted a Golden Retriever and Pebbles a Tortoiseshell Cat. I have grown up twin daughters and North Yorkshire has been home since childhood. I was brought up on a farm surrounded by farm animals, cats, dogs and horses. I’ve always drawn from a young age and liked to paint and draw people, landscapes and animals. However, my favourite subject are animals which I am hugely passionate about.
