Liz Pawley

I am a professional artist from the seaside town of Praa Sands in Cornwall. I specialise in Pet Portraits commissions working mainly with graphite pencil. 

There is nothing I like more than the bond we have with our beloved animals, and it always shows in every commission I complete. A portrait is a wonderful way to capture more than a likeness but turn a photo into a unique work of art to be treasured for a lifetime.
