Frequently asked questions

Here are a few FAQ's but I am always happy to answer your questions, just pop a question here.

Do you only paint dogs?
I get asked this one a lot, and I have to say yes, I specialise in dogs (because I LOVE painting them!). But saying that I am always open to painting other pets, your best bet is to pop over and say hi, with your photographs and we can have a chat about it.

Do you work from photographs?

Yes I do.

As a dog lover I love nothing more than receiving your beautiful dog photos – the more the merrier.

It is imperative that I have high resolution photos to work from so I can create a really detailed portrait. I require high quality, close-up headshots preferably taken in natural light, where I can clearly see eye and nose detail.


If you need more help capturing or choosing the perfect photo, here's a Complete Guide to Dog Photography to help you send me a shot that perfectly reflects your dog's unique personality - it includes examples of images I love to work with, and the one's that I don't!

If you need a great dog photographer I can highly recommend Dotty Dog Art's friend Bridget from Bridget Davey Photography - she's ace!
