I just want to say thank you so very much for my portrait of Dantie is it so lovely and I can't wait to get it back from the framers and hang it in pride of place in my living room.
I received my portrait of Angel today. When I opened the tube with her picture in it, it was like she was still here with me. I looked at her and just cried. You really captured her beauty and spirit.
We are delighted with the portrait as you have managed to capture a true likeness of them… I will highly recommend you to any friends we have who love their dogs as much as we do.

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 Kingston upon Hull 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, and welcome! Creating portraits has been something of a passion of mine since childhood and I love to bring out the inner emotion and beauty of each animal I work on. If you are interested in commissioning me to create a portrait for you, please do not hesitate to get in touch – hopefully I can answer any questions you might have.
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.
For horse portraits, I create them as head and neck studies in a range of different sizes, the most popular being 16” by 12” and 18” by 14”. As in the example here, its also possible to bring a number of horses together into one portrait, perhaps even creating a work with different generations or horses you have owned over the years. You can view more horse portraits by clicking here.
I usually undertake cat portraits at 12” by 9” as head and shoulder studies, and 16” by 12” or 18” by 14” for full body works. There is also the option of creating group portraits of your cats, as can be seen in this example, and these are painted as larger works. Some owners also like me to add a background to work, with perhaps a view of their pet in the garden or favourite indoor spot. Click here to see more cat examples.
