"The essence of all art is to have pleasure in giving pleasure."
Dale Carnegie

"The world is not a paradise, nor should we desire it to be. It is a world of beauty, but also of challenge and struggle. The essence of life is not perfection, but growth and change."

John James Audubon

"Nobody sees a flower really; it is so small. We haven't time, and to see takes time - like to have a friend takes time."

Pet Portraits

As a pet portrait artist living in Ireland, I strive to capture the unique personality and essence of each animal I paint. I believe that every pet has a story to tell, and I aim to convey that through my art.

My process begins with getting to know each pet through their owner. Through photographs, conversations, and sometimes even in-person meetings, I seek to understand what makes each animal special and what their relationship with their owner means to them.

From there, I use a combination of traditional and digital mediums to create a portrait that is both accurate and expressive. I pay close attention to details such as fur texture, eye color, and body language, while also incorporating artistic elements that bring the piece to life.

My ultimate goal is to create a piece of art that not only captures the likeness of the pet, but also evokes an emotional response from the viewer. Whether it's a sense of joy, nostalgia, or admiration, I want my art to connect people with the animals they love.

Thank you for considering my work, and I look forward to helping you commemorate the furry friend in your life.

Animal Portraits

My coloured pencil, pastel paintings and acrylic paintings capture the beauty and character of the animals that share our world, from the wild creatures that roam our forests to the domesticated animals that live on our farms. With a focus on detail and texture, I strive to bring each animal to life in a way that is both realistic and expressive. Through my art, I aim to highlight the unique personalities and characteristics of each animal, as well as their place in our shared ecosystem. Whether it's a curious farm goat, a majestic bison, or a playful fox, each subject is an opportunity to showcase the wonder and diversity of the natural world. By exploring the subtle nuances of each animal's form and expression, I hope to inspire a deeper appreciation for the beauty and complexity of our animal companions. Through my work, I hope to foster a connection with nature and a sense of responsibility for protecting and preserving these amazing creatures and their habitat


My pastel and graphite portraits capture the essence of the human form with a focus on realism and emotional depth. Through my art, I aim to reveal the unique character and spirit of each subject. With a keen eye for detail and an emphasis on capturing subtle nuances of expression and gesture, I strive to create portraits that are both lifelike and emotionally compelling. Whether it's the intense gaze of a young child, the weathered features of an elderly person, or the vulnerability of a figure in repose, each portrait is an opportunity to explore the complexity and beauty of the human experience. By focusing on the individuality of each subject, I hope to inspire a deeper appreciation for the diversity and richness of the human form. Through my work, I hope to create a connection between the viewer and the subject, evoking empathy, understanding, and a sense of shared humanity.
