About The Artist

Hi everyone!! My name is Mel and I'd love to welcome you to MC Animal Portraits!! 















I am a mum of two young children and 3 furry cats, Zampa, Taz and Tigger (you'll see them just below). 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 a day on drawing, mainly in the evening.

     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! For so many 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.
