I am a self taught pastel artist and paint portraits of all domestic pets large and small in portrait form or full body paintings. I also love to paint wildlife and I have won an award at the SAA. Recently I had a three page article written by me on how to paint a cat - step by step - in a national art magazine. I love animals and love painting - I support an animal rescue centre by fostering abandoned cats and kittens and raise funds for them through my art. I am also successfully teaching budding artists to paint portraits of their pets in pastel. This is generally at my home but sometimes at the students home. I have just started doing tuition by e-mail and by post and it seems to be quite successful.
