A beautiful, detailed pastel drawing showing your pet in their favourite place. The artwork is created entirely by hand, using pastels, on quality pastel mat paper. Our artist uses colour to emphasise the warmth and beauty of your pet. We hope you’ll agree the end result is beautiful. These portraits are available with a simple scenic background, on light grey or dark grey pastel paper. Available in three sizes, up to three pets, as a full body or head only portrait. The finished portrait is very realistic in style. Pastel portrait drawings come signed and framed. You can choose a frame colour after viewing your online preview.

The Artist

I get withdrawal symptons when I can’t draw! I live in Cheshire and draw every day. I’ve always owned Siamese cats and love the variety of being a pet portrait artist as every animal is completely different to draw. 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.

  • Love the portrait of my two Lhasas. It’s captured their look and their personality exactly. How do they do that from just a still photo? I must also praise the customer service. There was a full discussion by email checking little details 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. Would I recommend Tilly & Blue. ABSOLUTELY! View this artist
