by award winning artist Joanne Simpson

“You bring movement as well as softness to your portraits which brings out the character of the animal and that is truly remarkable”


Aristopaws are proud to work alongside Joanne Simpson who is an award winning pet portrait artist and is a member of the Pastel Guild of Europe. She works from your detailed photographs to produce a true likeness of your beloved pet. All portraits are unique and hand drawn using only the finest quality pastels and pastel paper. PLEASE NOTE THAT THE PORTRAITS ARE NOT FRAMED.

Joanne was voted Pet Paw-Trait artist of the year 2008 by the readers of Dogs Today magazine.

Send Joanne your photos which can be done either by uploading and emailing or sending the originals which will be returned (A selection is preferable - please see “Photography Tips”). A 25% deposit is required to secure a space on Joanne’s work schedule. Once Joanne has started your portrait you will be sent regular updates so that you can see the portraits progression.
