My name is Jenifer Helyar and I have been painting all my life.  I paint in oils, pastel and watercolour and subjects include landscapes, abstracts and pet portraits, all produced from my studio at home.  Over the years I have been commissioned to paint many animals, mainly cats and dogs and have several returning customers.  I also belong to a local art group, which I initially set up, and within the group, have sold many paintings at exhibitions in museums and other galleries.

Reproducing the character and personality of the animals is central to my approach, please see my gallery for examples of previous commissions

I can paint your furry friend in either Pastel or Oil paint, all I need is a photo or two to show the character of your pet, just a head study or a full length portrait.

Paintings can be framed or not, your choice, but all pastel paintings have mount surrounds.

If you are interested in having your pet (current or maybe a loved former pet) please fill in the enquiry form below and I will be in touch shortly. Alternatively if you would like further information including my scale of charges please email me direct at: furryfriendsinpaint@yahoo.com

Prices depending on size and framing requirements start at £60. (excl. p & p)
