Who am I?
Hi, my name’s Amy and I paint pets. I inspire and bring joy to fellow animal lovers with my animal portraits.
I’ve loved drawing since early childhood, and at age 11 my grandad taught me to paint. I continued my study of painting, and discovered a fondness for acrylic while completing an A level in art. After school, I wanted to combine art and IT, so went on to complete a BA (Hons) in Computer Animation, but left university realising this wasn't what I wanted to do after all. I started working in IT to pay the bills and ten years later I was still there, not creating much art and feeling unhappy.
After finally listening to my inner artistic voice and leaving my job to pursue art full time, I've taken many commissions including several pet portraits, an in-house council publication, an album cover and a game character painting. I've won some art competitions, completed several illustration courses and participated in an art exhibition.
I paint and draw in my studio every day, surrounded by my past and current artwork to inspire me. But when I'm not working on an art piece, I’m indulging in my love of art, animals (particularly foxes), music, anime/manga and Disney. I live in Milton Keynes with my husband, baby daughter and
What do medium I use in my portraits?
I paint in a realistic style, using acrylic is versatile and gives a lovely effect. I also create finely detailed pencil portraits in graphite, coloured pencil and pastel.

who am i?
I'm an artist. I love art, animals (particularly foxes), music, anime/manga and disney - to name a few. I live with my husband and two cats in Milton Keynes.
I've always loved to draw, then my Grandad taught me to paint when I was 11. I continued studying art at school through to A Level and discovered a love for painting in acrylic. After school I got a BA (Hons) in Computer Animation at University as I wanted to combine art and IT but left University realizing that that wasn't what I wanted to do after all. I started working in IT to pay the bills and ten years later I was still there - not doing much art and not being happy.
After an interesting two years trying to 'find myself' and finally listening to the artistic voice in my head I decided to leave my job and pursue art full time. I'm now painting and drawing every day in my studio, surrounded by my past and current artwork to inspire me. When I'm not painting I'm working on my social media, website, building my business, practicing martial arts or fussing my cats.
I've done commissions including several pet portraits, an in-house council publication, an album cover and a game character painting. I've won some art competitions, completed several Illustration courses and participated in an art exhibition.

what do i use?
I love using acrylic, it's versatile and has a lovely effect. My acrylic painting has evolved from a bold abstract style to a more realistic style for pet portraits. I also create finely detailed pencil portraits in graphite, coloured pencil and pastel.
Client's draft copy
I am a local ambassador for Alzheimers society so wanted to raise money & awareness at our local food festival.
My Nan was sadly taken away from us after a long 9 year battle with Alzheimer’s. However she never failed to smile until the end✨
Each and everyone person who came to take part in the raffle draw had a story to tell, seeing the statistics in front of me was an eye opener.
So let’s raise awareness & raise money to help support those in need!
Put a 📚below if you know someone!
