Welcome to Portraits of Pets,
the website of artist Karen Hartnell

I am a Pet Portrait and Wildlife artist based in beautiful southern Perthshire, Scotland.  I undertake commissions from photographs of pets, horses and wildlife. I work in watercolour, graphite pencil or acrylics.

My work can be viewed in my online Galleries.

The Commission Information pages have detailed information about the process, together with price guides. I am happy to answer any questions and offer advice, for example on composition or photos, and provide quotes for your specific portrait requirements. See below for current waiting list information.

Email portraitspets@aol.com for a no-obligation quotation. I usually reply within 24 hours Mon-Fri.

Commission Waiting List Information
update January 2019
Bookings for 2019 available. I'm quite flexible on deadlines at the moment, although I'm busier towards mid-March/April time. If you are interested in a portrait I can confirm timescales with you to ensure portraits are completed by your required date.

A deposit of 50% is required to secure bookings.

See Commission Information pages for full details.

7th January:
I'm aiming to start redesigning this website in February, and during that time the site will be down. I'll aim to get the bulk of it up and running again as soon as possible, hopefully within a day or two, so that information isn't offline for too long.

I've added my latest works to the relevant galleries (shown in Updates on the right-hand side of this page).

Hand-painted Plaques

Dog Crafts

Available to commission and purchase in my new online store.

A great gift idea!
