Sara Smith

I live in Wimbledon, London in the United Kingdom. I am a self taught artist.

I take commissions for pet portraits (mostly dogs and cats), but I also love drawing all sorts of wildlife.
I work in pencil (using Faber-Castell Polychromos).

I am inspired by the natural world, capturing the character of my subject, and working with my clients on commissions.

I recently gave up the 9-5 to become a full time artist. Currently the main focus of my work is my pet portrait commissions. My overall plan though is to move into original wildlife portraits and limited edition prints, while still maintaining my pet portrait business as I love working with clients! I feel very lucky tha I have had the opportunity to follow my dream, so I am already achieving some of my ambitions.

Examples of my work can be found at:

For commissions I can be contacted at or by phone on 07961293314
