❤️ Happy international dog day ❤️ I absolutely love dogs, I’ve shared my life with so many - Scooter, Jack, Ollie, Pepper, Sky, Poppy and now my darling Henry ❤️ Each one an individual that holds a special place in my heart. I also had the privilege of caring for hundreds of dogs during my years working as a veterinary nurse ❤️ and now I get to paint them 🥰🥰
Happy dog day all you lovely canine companions, you make us better humans ❤️ xx

I have had lots of doggy commissions recently 🥰 and I have loved painting them all. But I know we all love a variety of animals from little frogs to roaring tigers. I accept commissions for all animals and here are a few I’ve done in the past 😊 hope you like them ❤️

Hi everyone 👋 I thought I’d share some photos of my boy, I’ve painted him a few times but never any of these poses 😂 Here’s my crazy canine Henry ❤️ he is a very busy little Sprocker spaniel and turns 4 very soon 😮 not sure how this is possible!
I’d love to see yours, the crazier the better 🥰😍 x

Two gorgeous spaniels painted two years apart. I have painted nearly every day since I picked my brushes back up and never plan on stopping. It is my very special interest and brings me so much joy ❤️

They all fill a space in our hearts xx

Felis catus ❤️
Better known as the cat, loving, loyal yet independent, comfort and company and the most adoring noise emits from them when you rub them the right way 🥰 xx

Canis familiaris ❤️
Known more commonly as dog, best friend, comfort, company, playmate, heart mender and joy giver ❤️ They come in so many forms I will probably never get to paint them all, who holds your heart? Let me see them the little beauties 🥰 x


All complete and ready ❤️ gorgeous boy 🥰 x

My current work in progress ❤️ cute little spaniel pops 🥰 xx


Here she is whiskers and all ❤️❤️❤️ xx


My current work in progress; she won’t be complete until all of her beautiful whiskers are very carefully painted! ❤️ x


Hi everyone ❤️, things are a bit quiet with my pet portrait requests at the moment. I know the cost of living crisis is hitting all of us hard, my main struggle is getting my artwork seen, I’ve mainly received custom through word of mouth up to this point, so I thought I’d do an offer………
If I receive a commission as a result of this post then I’ll give a third off the price of the portrait, all you need to do is recommend me and if you have the time please share and make sure your friends mention you so they can receive the discount ❤️ if you yourselves would like a portrait then the discount will also apply. As always thank you so much for your continued support # #

🥳 CHALLENGE! Hi everyone, as you know I’m working on my new series titled ’Random Acts of Kindess’ I love the ethos, how creative I can be with my ideas and the possibilty of turning the paintings into cards, coasters and possibly mugs and poster art. I have lots of ideas but would love feedback and any suggestions. Who would you like to see performing a random act of kindness? no idea is a bad one! Please share so I can get as many ideas as possible ❤️ If your idea is realised I will gift you a product of your choice! Many thanks ☺️ Please get involved 🥳❤️ xx


On this somewhat cold and damp Tuesday ❤️
This is my second piece in the ‘Random Acts of Kindness’ series titled ’Thank you my deer’. This little fledgling has found his way back to his Mum thanks to this very friendly stag ❤️❤️ xx
