Hello! I'm a professional artist based in Edinburgh, specialising in highly detailed pencil pet portraits. Based on your photographs, I create realistic portraits of dogs, cats, and horses using high quality coloured pencils. Dog portraits are always very popular, but if you have a different type of pet - a rabbit or bird, for example - don't worry, as I am happy to draw any animal! A hand drawn portrait is a wonderful way to create a lasting memory of your pet, and can also make a unique and personal gift. See a list of available sizes and prizes here.

Coloured pencil is fantastic for capturing  extremely fine details and achieving great likeness of your pet.

I also offer watercolour pet portraits, which are ideal for capturing more expression and style.

Feel free to browse examples of past pet portraits here in my gallery. I aim to produce realistic and lifelike portraits with great attention to detail, to capture your companion's personality. 

I am based in the UK, although I happily accept commissions worldwide. If you are interested in commissioning a portrait of your beloved pet, all the information on placing an order can be found by visiting the commissions page. To place an order you can get in contact with me by emailing info@sashamalikart.co.uk along with photos.
