Purely Pet Portraits

Welcome to purely pet portraits


Christmas is slowly approaching!

If you would like to order a portrait as a gift for someone dear to you, please contact me via email or contact form. I am still accepting charcoal drawing commissions. For oil paintings please inquire separately, whether I can accept a commission will depend on the size of the painting and the number of commissions I’ve already accepted. You may also decide to order a gift voucher. These are available at any time.


The love of pet portraits in all forms is the driving force behind Kent based Purely Pet Portraits. With an energetic personality and a skill for capturing animals characters this highly skilled Pet Artist strives to create a story with her work. Whatever the occasion, Kate is there to catch the magical moments on paper or board. Feel free to get in touch if you’d like to learn more. Visit the oil painting and charcoal drawing galleries or learn about the prices.

Commissioning a portrait is easy:

  • contact Kate to discuss what you would like her to paint/draw

  • alternatively you can send over photos to purelypetportraits@gmail.com so you 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 Kate will send you a quick mock-up sketch showing how she's 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!


Oil Paintings & Charcoal Drawings


On Purely Pet Portraits you can find both oil paintings 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). Charcoal drawings are created with black and white charcoal pencils on grey toned Canson paper. They are sealed with fixative and shipped securely packed in reinforced tubes. Like oil paintings these are also insured and sent with one day guaranteed delivery within the UK ( overseas takes longer).

If you would like to learn more about the prices or commission process please visit the relevant pages.

"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 :)"
