Purely Pet Portraits

Welcome to purely pet portraits

by artists Kate & Paul


Hi, we’re Kate and Paul. We are traditional artists working in oils, charcoal and pencil. We are very passionate about art and we love painting and drawing pets. We're always happy to help so if you have any questions or you'd like to commission us for a portrait email us at purelypetportraits@gmail.com or use one of the contact forms throughout the website.

We live in the UK but work with clients all around the world.


Commissioning a portrait is easy:

  • contact us to discuss what you would like us to paint/draw

  • alternatively you can send over photos to purelypetportraits@gmail.com so we can discuss which one is the best.

  • before the work begins you will be asked to transfer 50% of the fee.

  • once the fee has been transferred the commissioned artist will send you a quick composition mock-up showing how they’re planning to execute the drawing/painting

  • you will be notified when the portrait is ready so that you can transfer the remaining fee and shipping cost. You will also receive a photo of the finished piece

  • That's it! Now you can impatiently await the arrival of your new artwork!

On Purely Pet Portraits you can find both oil paintings, pencil and charcoal drawings. Oil paintings are painted with Daler Rowney oil paints onto gessoed board. They are shipped securely packed in acid free paper, bubble wrap and - depending on the size - either cardboard boxes or wooden crates. Each painting is insured and arrives within a day in the UK (longer if sent overseas). Pencil drawings are done on white paper. Charcoal drawings are created with black and white charcoal pencils on grey toned paper. Charcoals are sealed with fixative and shipped securely packed in reinforced tubes. Like oil paintings charcoal and pencil drawings are also insured and sent with one day guaranteed delivery within the UK ( overseas takes longer).

"Contacted Kate before Christmas to arrange a charcoal pet portrait for a Christmas gift. Couldn't believe the detail of the finished product when it got delivered. Absolutely brilliant! A real eye for detail and a very professional service indeed.
Totally recommend Kate's service to anyone looking for artwork. Thanks Kate :)"


"It's absolutely perfect!!! I feel I will still have Bentley here at home with me. It will be a pleasure to hang it on my wall! Thank you so so much!!!"
