The portrait arrived yesterday and I just wanted to say thank you so much. It is absolutely incredible! You have brought many happy tears to the family who recently lost Tia.
Thank you so much for your beautiful, touching portrait of Maddy. It was sad to think we had so few photos of her, but thanks to you we will now have something wonderful to remember her by.
We have received the portrait of Rino and we framed it immediately, we are delighted with it and it is getting pride of place in the living room. It looks so like him, we're all amazed at how good it is. Thank you very much for giving us the perfect reminder of our boy.
T.V. commissioned artist Julie Palmer has been creating beautiful animal portraits for over 20 years, for customers both here in the UK and internationally. With each work she seeks to bring out the life and grace of each dog, horse or cat that she paints. If you live in the Birmingham area, Julie can receive your photos via email and then complete and send the finished portrait to you, usually within about 3 to for 4 weeks of ordering.
Hi – it’s great to welcome you to my site. Here you can explore previous commissions of dogs, horses and other animals that I have undertaken over the years. It’s also possible to order a portrait online, check the FAQ’s I often get asked, and contact me with any questions you might have. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch!
I offer dog portraits in a range of different sizes and options, beginning with head and shoulders studies at 12” by 9” and going as large as 24” by 18” for full body works. It’s also possible to add additional features such as collars and favourite toys to your portrait. By following this link, you can check out examples of different breeds of dogs I have undertaken over the years, such as Spaniels, Boxers, German Shepherds and Collies.
Over the years, I’ve created portraits of several other animals including cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, parrots, and even hamsters! As can be seen in this guinea pig portrait, owners often ask for a special feature to be including, such as favourite feeding bowl or cushion. As the size of each animal can vary hugely, it’s usually best to contact me first and then I can advise on the appropriate dimensions for the work. You can see some more of my animal portraits here.
Like my other portrait commissions, I work on horse portraits from photos sent in by the owner. Sometimes the customer will indicate a preferred one for me to work on, and I can advise whether this will be possible. In this example, I created the work by piecing together several reference photos of the different horses and then arranged them together in the one portrait.
