My name is Elizabeth Mills and I paint animal portraits, mainly horses and dogs though I have painted and drawn everything from pigs to ferrets! I mainly work from clients own photos, though if you live locally I may be able to come and take the photos myself. To enable me to truly capture the spirit and personality of your pet I need good quality photos showing your pets markings and colouration and the pose you would like. I will email scans or photos of the portrait in progress to enable you to request any changes, especially crucial if high quality photos aren't available.
