Welcome to the website of Pet Portrait and Wildlife artist Karen Hartnell
I’m a professional artist based in Kinross-shire, Scotland. Although based in the UK, I send my art work all around the world. I am a dog owner and can relate to wanting to capture a special portrait of a beloved pet. Wildlife is also a big passion of mine. I’m lucky that I can combine my interests into my art.
I have been painting peoples’ dogs, cats, rabbits, horses, plus all manner of wildlife, as a career for over 15 years.
I work in watercolours, acrylics and graphite pencil.
