Welcome to the website of artist Karen Hartnell

Karen Hartnell is a professional Pet Portrait and Wildlife Artist, based in beautiful Kinross-shire, Scotland. 

A dog owner herself, she can relate to wanting to capture the personality of those special pets within their portraits. Wildlife is also a big passion of hers, and this is reflected in the subject matters she paints.

Karen has been painting peoples’ pets and all manner of wildlife as a career for over 15 years, working in watercolours, acrylics and graphite pencil.

Contact Karen if you are interested in commissioning a Pet Portrait or any other enquiries about her work.
