My name is Ruth and I started my coloured pencil journey in January 2023, having dabbled in pastels previously. My love is for animals, in particular dogs. When I’m not drawing, I am a mobile dog groomer in Chichester, West Sussex, and have 2 small white dogs of my own (you might see their portrait in my gallery!). I undertook a Foundation Course in coloured pencils with Bonny Snowdon’s Academy and discovered a love for the medium for expressing the beauty of animals.

My artwork is done in coloured pencils which are lightfast, on Pastelmat paper or Drafting film – both of which are archival. This all means that your commission piece will not fade and will look beautiful for years to come (please frame under UV resistant glass to prolong the colours even further). The art is posted to you with a mount, backing board and cellophane wrap, via Royal Mail recorded delivery, ready to be framed. Each commision will be planned with you, to select a suitable photograph to work from (I prefer digital media in as high definition as possible)
