We all love our pets and probably have dozens of photos. I can work from a selection of photos to capture the personality of your pet in a unique work of art. A tribute, a memory, a legacy, an investment.
Dogs, cats, horses, birds, fish, rabbits, cows and more – you name it, I can paint it! My most unusual animal requested was a Dodo for which I sketched the model at Horniman Museum and painted a family of Dodo’s.
Visit my website Pets by Josie for full details and examples.
In 2015 I created a wrap around room mural, in a penthouse in Manhattan. I have since then painted a logo on the wall of a restaurant at Cuckmere haven and worked on the external wall at Pickhams using a combination of paint and mosaic. Please contact me if you are interested in commissioning a mural.
I am always pleased when someone wants to discuss a bespoke artwork project as I really enjoy a challenge. My most challenging commissions to date have been a portrait of a Harley Davidson motorbike and a landscape with a tractor and herd of cows where the branded number on the rump of one cow was clearly visible.

I run occasional private classes and workshops. Please join my mailing list for updates or visit my BLOG page.
I also offer for one-to-one tutoring for individuals and for small groups. Prices start at £20 per hour per person and I can tutor in your own home or at Pickhams in the conservatory or garden. Additional costs would be travel expenses and materials if necessary.
If you find difficulty working in group situations, are unable to travel or simply need to build up your confidence before joining a class, please get in touch to discuss how I could help you with your art.
