paintings

I paint for enjoyment and relaxation. I am happy to take commissions, though, for which I do not charge a great deal. Please enquire using the contact form on this site if you are interested in me painting a subject for you. Commissions came about from people asking if I would paint their pets, often to memorialise much-loved birds, dogs and cats. The owls are not pets. I just love owls. There is also a painting included of Stitch from Disney’s Lilo and Stitch, not done for any financial gain but as fan art, which a friend of mine then chose to have made into a tattoo.

All the paintings you see in this gallery were crafted on a 12.9-inch iPad Pro using Apple Pencil and Procreate. Although created digitally, paintings like these can easily be printed to canvas using one of the many online companies offering the service. There are many advantages. If you damage a canvas print, you can order another from your preferred provider. You get to keep the digital version as well, which can be printed not only to canvas but also t-shirts, mugs, and other items. I provide a high resolution image for such purposes, along with a low resolution picture you can easily share on social media and send to someone in an email.

I prefer to paint animals and only rarely paint human subjects. The two portraits of people you see in this gallery are my late mother and father. If you would like me to paint a pet for you, I will ask for several photos as inspiration and reference points. Enjoy the gallery!
