artists who paint dogs

Welcome! We are a group of 8 pet artists who paint dogs and only dogs, all of which are based on your favourite dog photos. Our company as you can see is called Dog Artists and we’ve been running now for 8 years. That’s 56 years in dog years and we know a lot about painting different breeds of dogs. Do you have a Bichon Frise, Labrador, Puggles, Golden Retriever, German Shepherd, Jack Russell, I could name hundreds of different breeds and crossbreeds that we’ve painted for clients. If you ever want to see dog portrait examples of a particular breed please just ask.

What style of dog portrait are you looking for?

As a group of 8 pet artists who paint dogs, we all have different specialities. For example Sam Banks and Richard Hall specialise in painting dogs in uniform. Extremely popular and unique having your dog painted in uniform or period dress allows you to choose the attire of how you would like your dog to look. Dog owners sometimes choose this for sentimental reasons or for a bit of fun. For example some owners have chosen to have their dog painted in military uniform because their dog is bossy and they feel it suits their character, whilst others have had loved ones fight in a war and want to have their dog painted in their loved one’s uniform for sentimental reasons. Whatever your reason, please email us – with your idea and we’ll get back to you with some quotes and advice.

Maybe you’re looking for artists who paint dogs with a studio background. Now I’m not talking about those awful studio backgrounds that we were made to have when having a school photo, I’m talking about having a background like Tyson the Jack Russell. Lots of similar tones and hues that enhance your dog’s portrait. We will pick shades and complementary hues that will show off your dog’s colouring.
