The Artist

Specialising In Fine Art Animal Paintings And Commissioned Portraits

Janet is a professional fine art animal artist, based in Hove, East Sussex.  In addition to selling original artwork  and prints, she also accepts a limited number of animal portrait commissions.  She has undertaken commissions for clients both in the UK and internationally, and is known for her unique technique of layering colour to capture a striking image full of depth and detail.

She has been taking commissions for animal portraits for over 25 years - specialising in creating beautiful paintings of horses, dogs and cats resulting in a stunning portrait to cherish forever.  Janet can create an inspired gift that will be enjoyed for years to come.

Her love of art and animals were combined at a young age and she has been fortunate to have owned many beautiful horses, dogs and cats throughout her life - an endless supply of models for her to develop and hone her portraiture skills.

Using photographs provided by her clients, she produces a lifelike image using the mixed medium of oil pastels and pencils.  She uses her skills to capture the essence and individual characteristics of her subject.

A selection of commissioned pastel and pencil portraits from her portfolio are shown in the gallery section.
