ANIMALS AND NATURE

THE CURIOUS CALF



This acrylic painting of a curious calf is based on a photo I took of a calf that approached me during a walk to say hello!

PET PORTRAITS







Absolutely loved painting my fur baby, on a background of gold - my golden oldie! Ollie sits next to me while I do all my artwork, so it was just right that he had his portrait painted!


A pet portrait in A3 similar to this would be approx £60.

BLOSSOMS IN SPRING

Oil on canvas of an abstract blossom branch in spring. I painted this during the lockdown period, so to me it represents how we flourish despite facing adversity. A symbol of hope in the springtime.

WADDLING DUCK

A charcoal on paper, I captured the inquisitive nature of this little duck who came to get a closer look at my camera!

DAIRY COWS


Live life like someone left the gate open!


It would be hard to be an artist in Northern Ireland without acknowledging the influence of agriculture on our country. Any drive through the country, you will encounter cows, and this painting was based on a photo I took of some interested cows while we were out on a walk. Gorgeous and intelligent animals, our green fields would be very empty without them!

HOUDINI, THE CAT

This watercolour is of a customer's childhood pet, painted from a photograph. Sounds like Houdini was a real character.
