 Welcome to Pet Portraits

by Karen Herbert

Immortalize your pet with a beautiful life-like portrait, painted in pastels from photographs by professional artist specializing in animals.

Karen has been painting animal portraits professionally, as a business, for the past 28 years. Her paintings are created using pastels and a technique that gives the finished painting realistic and natural look. Pastels are a lovely soft medium, lending themselves to the texture of hair and fur, unlike paint, which has a harder finish.

Photograph sessions are provided free of charge in S.E. England and in your own home, which gives Karen the opportunity to get a good idea of the subject’s character etc. By doing this Karen can acheive the painting you want and really get a good feel for  your animal and their personality. An additional charge to cover travel costs will apply for distances greater than 30 miles.

Finished paintings are supplied mounted (not included in price).

Professional bespoke framing service available.

Perfect solution for that special gift.

Commissions normally completed within 10-12 weeks, although this does vary during the year. Please book early for Christmas to avoid any disappointment (by August)
