A Painting Lasts Forever….

Although I am mainly asked to do animal portraits, increasingly I am being asked to do other subjects such as children and landscapes, I  am only too happy to paint these subjects.

I take my time on portraits to ensure they are exactly what you want and I am about producing quality art rather than quantity, so do usually have a waiting period for commissions.  All my work is guaranteed.

Pet & Animal Portrait Prices  from 1 January 2020

Pastel Prices start at

  • $ 250     A4 (14cm x 21cm)
  • $ 350     A3 (30cm x 42cm)
  • $ 500+   A2  (60cm X42cm)
  • The price depends on background and details, so please discuss this with me. 
  • Extra Pets can be added, from $100 per animal.


Your artwork is supplied unframed. Pastels can easily be smudged, so care must be taken until they are framed. (You will be supplied with detailed instructions on care and framing .) Pastels are sent flat between sheets of board to protect them.

If you would like to request a commission, a booking fee of 50% (non-refundable) is required before work commences.

Watercolour and acrylic s on canvas are also available, price dependant on size and details of work.

I use various materials, but only the highest quality paper, to ensure artwork lasts a lifetime.

Postage, packaging and insurance are from $25 within AU (If local to Ballarat, can be delivered or collected.)

I find it an absolute privilege and honour to paint portraits of people who loved pets. 

Pets are an essential part of our lives. As a pet owner, I understand how important all animals are to their owners, and I take great pride in producing a portrait that is not just a copy of a photo but a unique artwork that captures the character, essence and personality of each individual I paint. I base my work of your photos but remember my work is a painting, so will have my own personal touch.

A keen photographer, I am happy to assist with taking photos for a portrait if necessary. The quality of a painting depends on the photographs used.  I have a separate page with helpful tips on suitable images.

My commissioned works can be found in homes in the USA, UK, NZ, and Australia.

Gift Vouchers

A painting is one of the most memorable and unique presents you can buy a loved one- one they will probably never guess they are getting. However, sometimes, it is not possible to find the perfect photo that encapsulates the subject without the owner knowing it, or there may not be enough time to have the portrait done for a specific occasion.

A Gift Voucher allows the person to choose the image painted, while still showing them how much you care. Vouchers to the nominated value come beautifully packaged with instructions for the recipient and Jane’s card.

Below are a few of the pet commissions I have recently done.

“ Obi”


“Ralph & Poppy”
