Pet portrait commissions

Let me create a forever memory of your pet

Most of my work involves painting pet portraits for devoted owners. I create high quality original fine artworks using watercolour and gouache.

Pet portraits

I can create very life like portraits of your pets, with a background of your choice and in a variety of materials.

Greeting cards

Why not give your friends and relatives some of my artwork in the form of a greeting card? All are blank inside, include a plain white envelope and are sealed in a cellophane wrapper.

Artwork prints

All prints are signed and mounted. I also offer limited edition prints, which are signed, mounted and come with a certificate.

About me

I have a lifetime of dedicated study of all types of animals and this is very much in evidence in my superbly detailed watercolour wildlife paintings.

My other passion


In 2020 I became chair of Central Borders Red Squirrel Network - Under the umbrella of "Saving Scotland's Red Squirrels" (run by the Scottish Wildlife Trust), we are a group of volunteers working in the Central Borders area.


The project is working with local communities to ensure red squirrels will always be a part of Scotland’s special native wildlife. Together with partners, landowners and a network of local groups and volunteers, we are focused on the areas where red squirrels are most under threat from the spread of the invasive grey squirrel.


Our efforts are making a difference — in many places, red squirrels are already making a comeback. However, there is still a lot of work to do. With your help, we can continue to protect them.
