Thanks for stopping by my website!
I'm primarily a commission-based portrait artist, although when time allows, I like to create other pieces of art. You'll find some of my non-commissioned work in my shop.
Drawing has always been a real passion. I work from photographs and find the key to producing a good portrait is always having the best source pictures to work from.
I'm based in the Midlands area of the UK but accept commissions internationally. If you would like me to produce a portrait for you, please see my commissions page.
I've been really busy with commissions alongside producing some practice sketches and some new pieces of artwork for my shop. My newest available prints include a kingfisher, and a new bee and a new styled picture of a poppy and bee together. I do love a bee!
All three original pieces sold within a few hours of posting them on social media. I post new work on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter first, so do follow me if you'd like an original picture.
My drawing board currently has a hare in residence and I'm also working on a really exciting commission that's a little bit different to the norm. I can't wait to show you later in the year!

"We asked Jane to create a portrait of two much loved greyhounds as a special birthday present. We are absolutely delighted with the result! Jane has captured both dogs so realistically, we are amazed at the resemblance! Jane was very helpful throughout the whole process and we highly recommend her if you are looking for a portrait! Jane, we can’t thank you enough!"

Jane did a portrait for me of my friends dog Bailey... she is an amazing artist who did an amazing job of the late beautiful Bailey, I recommend her work very highly.

We asked her to do a picture of our three stages of life. She did a fantastic job of sketches of us young as adults and as our current grey state!! Really a fantastic piece that our children and grandchildren love already.

Jane is a very talented artist who manages to capture every detail perfectly.

Jane was recommended to me to draw my beautiful Tibetan Mastiffs Teya & Sashi for a special birthday present from my family. The detail in her pictures is incredible and yet the softness of the pencil lends a timeless appeal. My girls have been forever immortalised.
Jane also drew my friend’s spaniel Millie as a present and she was blown away-I would not hesitate to recommend her she is so talented.

"I was fortunate enough to receive a drawing as a gift done by Jane. It was incredible and beautiful and is the double of my dog Lexi. Jane is someone I will be using myself in the future just as soon as I can find a deserved person to receive it!"
