Horse, Dogs and Cat Portraits in pastel

 A portrait of your pet is a very special way of honouring your furry or feathery friend.
My name is Sandra Palme – I’m a professional equine and pet portrait artist based in the UK, specialising in handmade custom portraits of pets in pastels and charcoal. Since 2006, I have accepted hundreds of commissions worldwide and would be happy to create a lasting memory of your dog, horse, pony, cat or any pet from your favourite photos. It is my goal to capture your pet’s personality and essence as well as their looks. I know how special your companion animal is to you!

Custom Portrait from Your Pet Photo

Your custom portrait will be drawn from your photos. The better the photo, the better the artwork. All that is required is at least one good reference picture of your pet that you can e-mail or post.

Ordering a Portrait

If you are thinking about ordering a pet portrait, have a look at my information page and my price list and then contact me by filling in the contact form or by sending an e-mail. I will reply within 24 hours. Once your portrait is completed, a scan will be e-mailed to you for approval. I only require a small deposit; the balance is not due until you are 100% happy with the artwork.

Portraits Drawn from Reference Photo of Your Pet

I pride myself in producing quality artwork and guarantee a very good likeness of your pet. You can compare some of my drawings of pets to the reference photos they were drawn from on my photo to pet portrait page, read customer comments or see photos of happy customers.
