Hello and welcome to Animal Art by Carrie, I hope you like my artwork.
I am an animal artist focusing mainly on coloured pencil but I do use other mediums including oil, graphite pencil and charcoal.
I am based in the historic market town of Newport surrounded by the beautiful Shropshire countryside.
From a very early age I have been fascinated with the natural world and I have a deep love of nature. I have studied and worked with numerous animal species and I have been fortunate enough to have some truly magical experiences.
My second love in life is of course art, the two were always going to be combined.
Wherever I possibly can I like to take my own photographs to work from and I will often be out in the countryside looking for inspiration. I have traveled to some stunning far away places and photographed some magnificent animals which either have or will feature in my work.
The second part of my artwork and my bread and butter is pet portrait commissions. Pet portraits can mean a lot to the recipient and make a truly unique and personal gift.
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my site and again, I hope you like my work.
