Custom Animal Portraits

I can honestly say that creating a Custom Pet Portrait that will be an ever lasting momento for a family is a real honour for me. My family history with horse and dog training runs deep as we are fifth generation farmers here in Australia. Because of that I feel a strong connection and understanding of animals and have spent my artistic life observing their eyes, movements, body language,  interactions and form. I started sketching horses as a very young girl because back then that was my most favourite thing to do. Over the years I have learnt not only to mirror their image but to include their individual personalities within my work. With all my animal portraits, I strive to honour their special place in their families lives by creating an emotive and life-like custom portrait.

Custom Book Covers & Illustrations

It was such a wonderful experience to work with Author Ken Vincent on his book covers of novels and novella, published by Ginninderra Press.  During this process I read his draft copies and then met with him to discuss my interpretation of the characters.  Ken’s descriptions were so detailed that I was able to find models with an uncanny resemblance to help bring his subjects to life.   From there we created photo shoots with the models and I was then able to begin creating some really beautiful custom paintings for his covers that you can see below:

 – No Shoes And The Day Was Freezing
