About Sonia's Pet Portrait Art
Minimalistic intuitive and contemporary styled artworks in acyrlics, celebrating the personalities and special characteristics and behaviours of your pet.
The focus of the artwork is on the eyes of the pet. Leap frogging the constraints of realistic portraits, I use colours that are symbolic of their personality and mannerisms. I can also work in colours of their favourite toy or neck band.
These are distinctive artworks that make a statement about you and your pet.
