Penny has been painting pet portraits professionally since leaving Loughborough Art College in 1984. Penny was born in Harrogate in Yorkshire and started her career as a Leicestershire Artist at Northfield Farm, Cold Overton, near Melton Mowbray.

All these mediums enable fine detail and a rich use of colour giving a tremendous amount of realism.

Horse Portrait - Jim from Towcester

Hi Penny,

on first glance that looks amazing!
I need to have a good look over the weekend.

I have just realised that Jim’s tack is havana, a very dark brown, not black – I rode him yesterday. Could you therefore please amend the colour, I think it looks really good other than that.

Hi Penny,

I hope you are well. Adam loved the painting, thank you.



Collies Portrait - Bill and George from Birmingham

Hi Penny,

Just a quick note to say that I presented the painting to my partner during the surprise party held over the weekend and we are both absolutely thrilled with it as were all of the 40+ family and friends also gathered.

Thanks for all your help.

I just wanted to thank you for the fabulous painting you did of my cat Tootsie, commissioned by my mum.

I was blown away (i.e in tears!) at how beautifully you had captured her and how life like it was. It truely is lovely.

Thank You
