Pet commissions are welcome.
 I have always had a fascination and love for animals and I currently share my home with a number of pets including Tessa my adorable Staffordshire bull terrier. Drawing animals has always been a passion of mine, taking inspiration from local wildlife Artists Pollyanna Pickering, Steven Townsend and Gary Hodges who all work with sensativity and fine detail. After working on all manner of subjects, turning to our faithful companions in the end was a natural choice. I delight in trying to create the texture of soft fur on a flat piece of paper and bring out an animal's true nature through their eyes, capturing a message they cannot say out load.

" My parents loved the picture, especially his eyes (which follow you round the room!) they say you captured him perfectly. Thankyou again" LB,Sheffield, 9-January-2012

"Dear Elizabeth
Your drawing of Pumpkin is wonderful. 
It was quite an emotional experience looking at it. Visually, he was a beautiful cat - everyone wanted to pick him up on sight and also usually mistook him for a female cat, the first we know annoyed him and the second we presumed earned his indignation because there was nothing feminine about him. Your drawing not only captures how handsome he was, but for us there is something about it that captures the private Pumpkin we knew, the affectionate, determined and decisive friend, the side of him he showed to us and not the rest of the world. I have to admit shedding a tear.
Thank you so much.
I rather hope to be in Derbyshire again sometime in the second half of this year and if you are in Grindleford at the time, it would be great to meet you." MP, Australia, 22-January-2012

"Hello Elizabeth, Thank you very much for the drawing. It has arrived safely and looks wonderful. Now to search for a frame!" MF, Hampshire, 18-August-2012

"Wow!!!!!!!!!This looks absolutely fantastic! Even better than I had envisaged. Thank you so much, I can't wait to give it to him!" LH, Scotland, 09-September-2012
