I am a Canadian pet portrait and wildlife artist living in Ontario. I was born in England spent many wonderful years there. When I was 15 my family moved to New Brunswick, Canada.

.

I have always been pulled to drawing animals ever since I was a little girl. I love the numerous types and breeds of animals and it never gets boring. For my animal paintings I like to create highly detailed artwork that I can put the life of the animal Iā€™m drawing into the piece of art. As I do many pet portraits for owners who have lost their loved one, its about bringing their pet back to life as a piece of artwork that will last for centuries if needed.

Wow!! I just received the drawing of my Duke in the mail. It is even more amazing in person!! I can hardly believe it is a drawing- it is incredibly realistic. She shipped it perfectly- and it made it safely all the way to the USA! Thank you so much, Gemma!! We will treasure it forever šŸ’•

I can't remember how I found Gemma but her portraits captured me immediately. It's the eyes. I don't know how she does it but she so captures the look. When I lost my German Shepherd recently, I knew I wanted Gemma to do her portrait for me. I am not disappointed, I love it."
