Artist: Alice Ladkin
My name is Alice Ladkin and I am a full-time artist specialising in pet and animal portraits.I grew up in Hampshire, but currently live and work in the heart of Bath, Somerset. All of my portraits and artwork are produced lovingly in my home studio.
My passion for drawing and painting began at a young age. I was always fascinated by the beauty of nature and animals, and loved seeing and capturing the world around me in my own way. Exploring colour in particular became almost like an obsession for me; knowing that there are so many colours in things motivates me to extract and exhibit them through art. After studying Fine Art at college and subsequently moving to Bath, I decided to follow my dream of becoming a full-time artist. Combining my love of animals and art seemed like a perfect choice, which is why I specialise in pet and animal portraits.
