Pet Portraits, Wildlife Art & Mosaics

Hello, I'm Fiona, a Pet Portrait, Mosaic and Wildlife Artist based in Aberdeen, Scotland in the UK who just loves to draw and paint animals and make mosaics!

I specialise in creating pet portraits; realistic cat, dog and horse drawings and paintings from your favourite photographs. Each one is completely hand painted or drawn from start to finish. I studied at Gray's School of Art in Aberdeen, Scotland and love to combine what I learnt from my time there along with my lifelong love of our furry friends, to produce pet portrait art full of detail and character.

My main aim with every piece of art is to capture the true soul within the furry creature you want to immortalise with your pet portrait. Whether that's a regal, refined presence or a completely goofy, cheeky spirit - I just love for that to come off of the page every time you look at the painting. It's also a lovely way to remember and celebrate those furry friends that have trotted, padded, or prowled over the Rainbow Bridge.

My other passion is painting wildlife. To date this includes wildlife creatures such as owls, lions, tigers, butterflies and foxes. My absolute favourite to paint being the tiger. 

Also in my range of services is mosaic art. I love designing and making each piece totally by hand, using gorgeous shiny glass tiles, coloured glass, charms and pieces of reclaimed china. I've even managed to combine it along with my love of horses in my colourful stable name plates - a genuinely original piece of art especially for your horse!

Give me a shout if you're thinking about a pet portrait, or some wildlife or mosaic art. I'd be over the moon to assist so have a good browse and let me know how I can help.

 

Pet Portrait Commissions - UK & Abroad

I create my pet portraits to commission and can ship to clients all over the globe. Whether it's for yourself or it's a gift for a Birthday, Anniversary, Christmas or any other occasion, the portraits make a perfect and truly thoughtful present for animal lovers.


Pastel And Pencil Pet Portraits And Wildlife Art

You can choose from coloured pastel art - which will be bursting with colour, or, if you prefer you can opt for black and white pencil pet portraits. To own your very own pastel or pencil work of art that you can enjoy for many years to come, I'll work closely with you throughout the process, making sure you get regular updates with progress pictures to ensure you are happy with the work. I use high quality art materials and papers for the best results. Commissioning Pet Portraits should be an enjoyable experience and I'll do my best to make sure we have some fun along the way. I'll offer you help with the best photos to choose for your portrait if you are unsure. I have more details on this in the commission me section.

Is my colour work painting or drawing? Well, it's actually a bit of both. My preferred medium for the coloured pet portraits or wildlife art is pastels and I use them in all sorts of varieties. I'll start with layers of panpastels (blocks of colour in small, circular "pans") that are applied to the surface with brushes in a very similar fashion to painting. I then use pastel sticks and pencils for finer detail such as eyes, fur strands and detailed markings. I love the effects that pastels produce - especially when softly blended as they give such a realistic effect of animal fur. My black and white drawings are worked in graphite pencils.

The Perfect Gift For Animal Lovers

I know only too well the special bond that can exist between animals and their owners and it's precisely because I understand that emotional connection that I strive to make sure the pet portrait is full of the subject's true character. It's not unusual for the pet portraits to produce happy tears - especially if the subject has left this world to be in the one where we hope to meet them again :)
