Jen Manning Realistic Portrait Artist
I specialise in painting realistic portraits of your beloved pets. As a pet owner and animal lover myself, I recognise the deep love and bond we have with our pets of all varieties. My house bunnies inspire me every day and it is my passion to paint for other people. I paint in a variety of styles, with a variety of backgrounds. From my own bespoke 'mystical' style, to your more traditional portrait on a simple, plain background. I am mainly asked to paint dogs, cats, rabbits, horses, but I can paint any animal and I always welcome a challenge.
I work with the customer to design a portrait that is just right for them with a pre-arranged quote from the start. This can be anything from one animal in a portrait to 20 or more. I have been known to paint multiple pets in a setting of a clients' choice. I ship worldwide for the cost of the postage. I am based in the UK, so obviously if you are UK based postage will be cheaper. I can either paint on flat canvas that arrives rolled and needs a frame or on boxed canvas that is ready to hang. I would consider painting any size and subject. I also paint animals with their owners in bespoke montages. I have painted as many as 100 portraits in a year before now!
My work starts at around £60 for a single pet portrait. Each quote and painting are unique so I would give you a quote once I have received details of the sort of painting and number of subjects involved.
I work entirely from photographs including some really old photographs that are barely visible. This means I can create your portrait from my home without needing to disrupt your life. All I need are some photographs of your pet. The better the photograph, the better the portrait outcome will be.
