Dugs (or "dogs" as they are known in some dialects) are my second great enduring passion after painting, and I'm reasonably certain that in our wee staffie cross, Nicky, we got just about the best one.

Sadly, you can't have Nicky, but I'm sure your dog (or equivalent scaled, feathered or furry friend) is pretty great too. If you'd like to commission a pet portrait please get in touch via my contact page or email me at: Commissioning a painting or drawing is a straightforward process and I'm happy to discuss your ideas and give you a quote. Prices start from £95, and you can pay in instalments for pieces over £500. Have a look at my guide to commissioning a painting to learn more,
