Welcome to my website, Pet Portraits UK. I am a pet portrait artist based in Scotland UK. On my site you can find a selection of some of the portraits, paintings and drawings of dogs, cats, horses, cars and houses I have been commissioned to produce in the last ten years or so, There are also six pages of illustrations in watercolour, gouache, pencil, pastel, coloured pencil and pen and ink, plus some designs from Paint, covering a range of subjects including boats, harbour scenes, sketches of Paris, wobbly New York skyscrapers and - well, take a look. You'll see what I mean...

Most of my portraits are commissioned from the UK but I also receive orders from Ireland, America and Australia. (I'm still waiting for one from New Zealand!). I work in watercolour, gouache, pencil, pen and ink and lately in pastel and coloured pencil. I feel lucky that I am able to combine my main interests - art and dogs. In my other website Scottish Pet Portraits you can see, in addition to dogs, pictures of cats, horses, wild animals, boats, cars and houses.

If you would like to commission a painting or drawing of your dog, cat, horse, or even your house or vintage car, just send me one or more photos by email or post. The better the photo the better the result will be. You're welcome to ring me on 01309 641556 to discuss a portrait commission. I can usually finish a painting in about two weeks. I'll need a deposit of 20% and you'll receive a proof to OK before you pay the balance. The artwork will arrive by guaranteed post the next morning.

Some of my paintings and drawings are available as limited edition A4 and A3 prints on Facebook. See Collins Prints
