Pet Portraits beautifully Hand Painted
from Photos

Welcome to Sarah's Pet Portraits. A beautiful hand painted, or drawn portrait of your pet is the ultimate gift for pet lovers, including yourself!

This is the place where you can order a painting or a graphite drawing of your pet that you will be thrilled with. I promise.

If you would like to know about me and how I began painting and drawing pet portraits, please visit my about me page.

You can read letters from some of my happy customers on my Testimonials page and you can leave your comments there too, if you wish.

Would you like me to paint or draw a portrait of your pet?

If so, it is very easy to do. All you have to do is send me (usually by email),a clear, sharp photo of your pet. For more detailed information, please go to my order a pet portrait page.

You can rest assured I offer excellent personal, customer service (you may contact me at any time), with competitive, affordable prices.

My drawn pet portraits are all drawn in the traditional way using real pencils on to Bristol Board, a paper specifically designed for pencil art. 

My paintings are meticulously hand painted digitally on my computer, my aim, to give a realistic portrayal of your pet where his/her personality and character shines through.

When printed on to the best fine art papers, using the highest quality inks the results are stunning. It can be difficult to tell the difference from a traditionally painted portrait.

I have a page on this site showing the stages, step by step, of my technique for my digital paintings

There are also galleries for Cat Paintings, Dog Paintings, Horse Paintings and Small Animal Paintings

I have included a Breed Paintings page for those of you who may have a favourite breed of pet.

If you have a favourite breed of Dog, Cat or any other pet and you would like me to paint it it is very easy to do. Just click here and you will be taken to a simple form to fill out.

Why Have a Painting of Your Pet

What better way to celebrate your pet than having his picture painted, just as you would for any other member of your family.

  • It is a fantastic gift, either for yourself or for a special person in your life who loves their pet, just like you.
  • It is great for Birthdays, Christmas or an Anniversary Present.
  • It can help to fill an empty void in your heart, left when your pet has passed away
  • It serves as a reminder of the good times you shared together with your pet.
  • It will take pride of place in your home, for you to admire and take pleasure from for many years.
  • It's different and Personal.

It would be a real pleasure for me, to paint or draw your pet's portrait.  To see a variety of paintings please take a look at the galleries, where you will find pictures of many of the portraits that I have been commissioned to do. They have all been lovingly painted, or drawn, by me, for anyone whose pet is an important part of their life.

In addition to the gallery's, there are information pages too. Just click on the links below.

Graphite Pencil Pet and Wildlife Portraits


I love the painting that Sarah did of my cat Pony who is now in Rainbow Heaven. When I received it in the mail I broke down was like she was here again. Great Work.

Susan Meyer USA

Sarah does incredible work. The two portraits that she has done for me of my dogs are beautiful and so life like. The quality of her work is exceptional and I recommend her work highly.

Larisa Scharikin USA

Sarah has become an expert and perfectionist in her field lovingly producing beautiful  depictions of much loved pets.

Her eye for detail and painstaking attention to accuracy - right down to the last hair and whisker - combine to create wonderfully lifelike images which give endless pleasure.
