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. I work in watercolour, graphite pencil or acrylics. Examples are available to view in my online Galleries.

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. Email portraitspets@aol.com or karen@portraitsofpets.co.uk for a no-obligation quotation. I usually reply within 24 hours Mon-Fri.

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.

7th November 2004 - 25th December 2017

Sadly, on Christmas morning, my beloved Labrador and
artistic inspiration, Corbie, passed away. The following day it was
13 years to the day that we brought him home. We had many great adventures throughout Scotland. He was the reason I started
putting my artistic skills into creating pet portraits.
He will be much missed and forever in our hearts.
