Thankyou for visiting my pet portrait website!
I hope you enjoy looking through my portfolio and if you have any queries please don't hesitate to get in touch! I will be more than happy to help.

My name is Jo Shepherd and I am a self-taught pet portrait artist based in the UK. I am a self confessed perfectionist which drives me to ensure that each portrait is completed to a high standard and I won't be happy until I have achieved a true likeness to your beloved pet!

I currently create my portraits part-time, alongside a full time job in retail. It is therefore important to give me plenty of notice if you wish to order a portrait (I advise a minimum of 4-6 weeks, as I will usually already be working on a commission and perhaps may have a waiting list).

My art history involves drawing and painting with my Dad from a young age, and studying GCSE and A-Level art. I have a keen eye for detail and love getting stuck in to intricate details, which is perfect for replicating your beautiful pets in artform.

I absolutely love animals and since I was born have always grown up with pets in my family. I therefore understand what a big impact they are on family life and how important their prescence and companionship can be.

All pets are different and unique, having their own individual characters which make them special. I aim to capture and portray this in my portraits and hope to create something that will be cherished and make you smile for years to come.
