Pet Portraits & Wildlife Art by Lucy Joyce

A piece of original art is a wonderful addition to any wall space, and even more so when it celebrates a beloved furry, or of course non-furry, companion. Using photographs I create highly detailed life-like drawings that aim to capture the true character of each and every one of my subjects, from pampered pooch to feathered friend.

For information on booking a pet portrait please visit my Commissions page or Contact me with any questions you might have. View examples of my recent work here in my Gallery.

Limited Edition prints of my wildlife artwork are available to buy in my website Shop.

"My dog was my best friend and it was heartbreaking to lose him. I wanted a special way to honour him so I searched for days to find an artist that I believed would be able to capture his essence, and that is when I found Lucy online. I was a little hesitant because I knew every detail of him intimately, every hair and freckle, and I was worried that even though I knew the drawing would look beautiful, it just wouldn't be MY DOG. I am thrilled to say that Mrs. Joyce did the most incredible job and I can barely tell the difference between the photo and portrait. I was blown away by all the detail and time she took to make sure he looked perfect. It really was MY DOG in that drawing!

She sent regular updates throughout the whole process so I could see it come together and it was packaged perfectly in a way that wouldn't allow for any damage to the portrait. It was expensive but worth EVERY penny. If you are even considering a portrait of your pet, then it's already obvious you have a lot of love for them. For this reason, I would highly recommend Lucy. She has a long waitlist because she is so popular but I promise that it is worth it. She will be able to give your pet the time and respect they deserve and it will be a piece you keep for the rest of your life."

"Lucy has recently done portrait of our dog, which we are delighted with. She has really captured her perfectly. The portrait was a gift from my partner and Lucy gave me the option of having regular updates whilst completing the portrait,which was just lovely! So many people have commented on the portrait, we can’t recommend her highly enough. Thank you Lucy x"

"I live in Sydney, Australia and found Lucy online. After vigorous research, I realised her work is leagues above anyone else & this is why I chose her to draw our little toy poodle for my partner’s birthday gift. Not only was the portrait amazing (it captured my dog’s HUGE personality), I know it will be something we treasure forever. Lucy continued to stay in touch with updates throughout the entire process, including tracking my parcel and sending updates on when it would arrive. I cannot fault her skill & service & cannot recommend her highly enough - thank you Lucy!"
