Karen is a full-time coloured pencil artist living and working in UK.  Creating highly detailed and carefully drawn coloured pencil portraits of both wild and domestic pets and horses.

Working with only the highest quality professional coloured pencils and archival papers, she carefully illustrates the character and beauty of her subjects. 


She also creates pet portraits from good quality (wherever possible) digital photographs, although if asked to draw a memorial portrait of a beloved pet, print copies are usually acceptable, but some detail may be lost due to poorer quality reproductions. A portrait can only be as good as the reference material.


Her coloured pencil portrait of the Snow Leopard, entitled 'Snow Queen' has been published in Colored Pencil Magazine and is available as a Limited Edition print. Please contact me for details.

Please take a wander through my gallery for examples of her work, and if you would like to commission a pet portrait, or a picture of a favourite wild animal, please do get in touch. Her work covers a broad range of animals from pets to big cats and many are offered as Limited Edition prints or Greetings Cards.

I am delighted to have received my print copies of Ann Kulberg's Color Pencil Magazine from the USA, in which Snow Queen here, is featured in the Pencil Box section of the magazine. 

If you copy and paste the link below into your browser it should take you to the blog which features all the artists (including myself) who have been chosen to have our drawings highlighted.

Needless to say I am honoured to have  my drawing chosen to appear in the November issue. It took many weeks to complete this portrait and this is an unexpected and thrilling recognition of all those hours bent over the drawing board. 

Thank you.


Limited Edition prints of Snow Queen are now available.  Please contact me for details.
