Pet Portraits by Denise
To introduce myself, my name is Denise, I live in the North of England where I love taking long walks with my dog and enjoy gathering inspiration for paintings from the incredible array of wildlife, colours and landscapes which surround me.
I have always had a desire to paint and create. I have always loved to draw and paint for myself and others and I completed my first commission when I was just fifteen. Since then I have painted for many people around the world and have commissions hanging in Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Greece, USA, Australia, Scotland, Ireland and around the UK.
My paintings are mostly mixed media which is achieved by combining acrylic paint, glue, papers, sometimes oil paints and watercolour pencil on a prepared collage of newsprint, stretched paper or canvas.
Commissions are all very personal requests for bespoke paintings. I often paint pets which include special landscapes ( memorable places), or objects of importance in the paintings. I have painted owners with their pets, children with pets and multiple assorted animals.
I love what I do and love to paint for people. I take pride in what I do, never being satisfied until I have captured the character and personality of every pet I am painting.
Over the years I have painted many memorials for people. In some cases, clear close up digital photos are not available, but I will work closely with my customer to produce my very best for them. In this technological world it is wonderful to create something totally unique to keep special memories alive and bring lasting pleasure to last a life time.
All of my paintings are varnished, professionally card mounted and are available in variety of sizes. I hope you enjoy looking at my work
