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 pets and all manner of wildlife for over 10 years. Watercolours, acrylics and graphite pencil are her main mediums for commissions.

Contact Karen if you are interested in commissioning a Pet Portrait or have any other enquiries about her work. See below for current waiting list times.

Browse past work of dogs, cats, horses, rabbits and wildlife in the online galleries section.
