Sarah Perkins

I am a professional freelance artist & a member of the Association of Animal Artists. I work from my bright studio on the 1st floor of Banks Mill Studios in the heart of Derby, UK. I divide my time between pet portrait commissions and my own creative works.
My paintings are lively with layers of colour using the preferred medium of acrylic paint on canvas. My techniques are self- developed, using the paint with a mixture of dense layers, dry dragging & layered washes of colour. I have always admired impressionist painters & the pointillism styles of painting and I believe this reflected in my work.
When producing a portrait commission, it is important for me to succeed in portraying the character of the subject. It gives me great pleasure to know that my customers love my style. They like the fact that their beloved pet is transformed into a creative piece of art.
My animal artworks are my own creations inspired by the variety & detail in nature itself.
The Original artworks, Prints, Greeting Cards and Homewares can be purchased from my website online shop –
I genuinely feel blessed to be doing a job that I love. It feeds the soul to know that customers love the art I create!
