Welcome to the website of artist Karen Hartnell

I am a Wildlife and Pet Portrait artist based in beautiful southern Perthshire, Scotland.  I undertake commissions from photographs of pets, horses and wildlife.

Commission Waiting List Information - Update September 2017

I'm provisionally closing my waiting list for Christmas commissions this year.
Depending on how long current bookings take to complete as I progress through my Waiting List, space may become available and I will update here if this is the case.
Limited space January - April 2018.

A deposit of 50% is payable to secure bookings - see Commission Information pages for details.
Sea Eagle Festival, Tayport, Fife - Saturday 26th August, 2017
I raised £25.50 from my card sales for the RSPB's East Scotland Sea Eagle Project.
Thank you to everyone who purchased cards, and it was lovely to meet and chat to people about my work and the eagles.

If you are interested in commissioning a pet portrait, you can find more detailed information on the Commission Information pages or by downloading my Commission Information & Price Guide, PDF format.

My commissioned work has primarily been watercolour or graphite pencil. I have been increasingly using acrylics for my non-commission work and I'm now offering this medium for commissions.

Hand-painted Dog Breed Plaques are available from my online Store, where you can find more information. Each plaque is hand-painted and finished ready to hang. Commissioned options are now available for bespoke hand-painted plaques. They make a great gift for dog lovers.
