Commission Hand Drawn Portraits

With over 30 years of Art Experience, I have been trained extensively as a Fine Artistic. It is my absolute passion to capture the essence of the energy and personality of my subject when I am tasked to create a beautiful masterpiece of them.


I am able to work from photos and detailed descriptions; however, my preference is to meet the animal or person first. This allows me to truly understand them, capture their personality and temperature, which I can then portray in their life like painting.  I believe that the eyes are the window to the soul and the main focal point of my work.


I am trained in oils, acrylics and have more recently worked successfully with soft pastels.   I have also worked as a freelance artist with Authors on self published book covers and illustrations for children’s novels.


Examples of my work including Custom Animal Portraits and Book Covers can be found on my Portfolio Page here. For more information feel free to contact me on 0412 980 292 or email


I welcome any new enquiries for custom paintings for beloved family members or pets, and freelance work.
