About The Artist   

MC Animal Portraits Artist

Hi everyone!! My name is Mel, and I'd love to welcome you to MC Animal Portraits!! I'd like to take a moment to introduce myself to you briefly.

I am Mel, a mum of two young children and 3 furry cats! All of them like to keep me on my toes on a daily basis! As well as looking after them I also work part time and spend just 2-3 hours an evening on drawing.

   As a pet owner and animal lover, I fully understand the bond that comes with having a pet. The way they can make you smile, laugh or cry with just a look! Many consider their pets to be another member of the family, and therefore I consider it very important to capture the personality & character of each individual animal I have the pleasure of drawing.

   For this reason I started MC Animal Portraits back in 2011, and haven't looked back! To begin with I only used graphite, I started experimenting with colour pencil in 2013 but only started using them properly in 2015/16. I now offer both graphite and colour pencil drawings. I mainly draw custom pet portraits but will turn my hand to any animal. I have a selection of pet and wildlife prints available.

   I take a massive amount of pride in what I do. If I'm not happy with a piece for any reason, I will not take payment and will often start fresh. To me they are not just a picture that will hang on a wall, or stand on the side, they are a part of someones life, your life. They hold memories and feelings of the past, present and future.

   If you're interested in a commissioned portrait please contact me through the contact form on the contact page or email 

   Thanks for stopping by!!
