Original Paintings


I was fortunate enough to win a pet portrait by Jacki in a raffle; I was amazed to see how perfectly Jacki was able to capture Fligh's (my parent's dog) character and personality from a few old photos; we loved it so much that my husband then asked Jacki to do one of our dachshund Belle for my birthday; again she managed to capture her perfectly getting the right mixture of inquisitive and cautious in her expression. Since then we have had another 2 portraits for friends and family, one of Grace the dachshund and another of my husband's 3 dogs waiting to go inside after a walk; a particularly precious one as one of the dogs is no longer with us. Again everyone who sees them is amazed by Jacki's talent skill - we won't be going anywhere else for portraits in the future!

Pet Portraits

Your beloved pet immortalized in vibrant pastel pencils

Have your portrait turned into greeting cards & prints


Cannot thank Jacki enough. My dad lost his beloved dog a month before my wedding, we didn't have a gift idea at all for him and I knew instantly that I would ask Jacki. We were all in awe of what we received and it was safe to say a few tears were shed. It really is a wonderful portrait.


I try to capture the character of each animal I paint, whether a much loved pet or an elusive wild creature. Using only the best archival materials.
