Welcome to Portraits of Pets, the website of artist Karen Hartnell

I’m a professional artist based in Kinross-shire, Scotland. I specialise in pets, horses and wildlife, working in watercolours, acrylics or graphite pencil.

The Commission pages give details of the process, together with a handy price guide. Portraits are undertaken from your photographs. See below for current waiting list times.

Contact me for a no-obligation quotation, and I’m always happy to answer any questions and offer advice.

The Galleries showcase my work, which includes: Dogs in watercolouracrylics and pencilHorsesCatsWildlifeRabbits and Landscapes.

I also have an online shop which has an ever-growing selection of items, including hand-painted plaques and dog crafts.
