Pet Portrait Artist
Website: Pet Portrait Artist
"Melanie Phillips is not only a professional Pet Portrait Artist, she is an artist with true natural talent. A great site with lots of helpful tips for other artists." - Moggies
Melanie specialises in hand painted realistic, highly detailed portraits of cherished family pets. She has been painting animal portraits exclusively for just over 10 years (since leaving art college), and stresses that every picture you see on her website is 100 percent hand painted by herself. All of the portraits displayed on the website have been painted within the last 8 months (As of March 2004). Every portrait on the website is the result of the close relationship between the pet owner and the artist. Each portrait begins with a discussion of the clients needs and a painting is never complete until the client is thoroughly satisfied.
Three examples of Melanie's work are below, remember online pictures cannot do justice to the real artwork:
Posh - Coloured Pencil Cat Portrait
Sammy & Charlie - Oil Painting
