Choose a light grey or dark grey background, or add a simple scene here. Professionally mounted and framed, ready to display in your home or office.

The Artist

I get withdrawal symptoms when I can’t draw! I live in Cheshire and have always had Siamese cats. I work with charcoal and pastels and like to blend and create a real softness to the finished piece, which is perfect for fur. I use my fingers to blend which is good messy fun! I’m a total perfectionist with a passion for nature and animals.

The portrait is all the more poignant now he’s passed, as we look at it with happiness rather than heartbreak. I’m so glad we had this done while he was still so full of life. View this artist

There was a full discussion by email and I was able to ask, if they could draw Taffy’s ears a bit longer because the groomer had got a bit carried away. View this artist
