Animal Portraits By Lorraine Gray
I’m Lorraine Gray and I have been a professional animal portrait artist for over 20 years. I have been delighting clients worldwide with my pet portraits of their beloved cats, dogs and horses from their photos. In 2007 I appeared on BBC1 Television at Battersea Dogs Home. I am also an author of three books on how to paint pet portraits in oils.
Many of my commissioned pet portraits are from people who want a lifelike portrait to remember a recently passed, loved pet. With a good photo to work from and by talking to my client about their pet’s personality I aim to bring their furry friend to life in the pet portrait I produce. Having a painting of the pets we have loved can be very comforting when they have gone.
I also get lots of commissions from people wanting to give pet portraits as a gift. Pet paintings are great gifts, especially as Christmas gifts or birthday gifts. If you want to commission a custom pet portrait as a gift please book early. For those times where the decision is last minute you can always buy a gift certificate so that the owner can decide on the pose at a later date. Details of my gift cards can be found on my prices page.
Some examples of the pet portraits I have drawn appear on this website. There is also a blog section where you can read about my commissions and view work in progress, finished pet portraits and framed paintings. I’m also active on Facebook and Instagram where you can view my work.
My testimonials show that you can be confident that I will provide you with a animal portrait that is lifelike and will bring you many years of cherished memories of your pet or pets. A small selection of reviews relating to some previous pet portraits appear further down this page.
