Animal Illustrator: Capturing creatures large and small


I’m an animal illustrator with a difference!

I am so passionate about animals… I’m just mad for them that I love nothing better than doing a quick sketch or a six-hour masterpiece! Give me a pencil and a cute puppy and I’m away!

I am a leading animal illustrator and love nothing better than getting funny images of your furry friends to draw, whether it’s a birthday present or just a small way of keeping a memory, I’m the animal illustrator that can help!


I just love animals!

Having lots of pets of my own I know what each of them are like, their characteristics and the way they behave; it is all part of them being themselves! I know how important it is to capture all their cheeky charms in a cartoon, watercolour painting or maybe just a sketch!

Also I can cater for ANY budget, making me the UK’s most affordable animal illustrator! I also offer discounted rates for multiple pictures!

It doesn’t matter if it’s your dog, hamster or stick insect. As your animal illustrator, I could draw anything you wish, it could be painted in any style or to any size.

So if you fancy a massive canvas of your dog Rufus or a tiny portrait of your goldfish, I can help!

Being around animals daily allows me to study shapes and sizes, and this helps to make sure that your picture is the best.

So why choose me as your illustrator?

When picking an animal illustrator its important that you trust them… As I know, I would not just trust any person with my lovelies! I work with you to ensure I capture the true identity, and look of your animal.
