About Me

Philippa Lavers, pet portait & wildlife artist.

I had not drawn for 23 years when I picked up a pencil and sketch pad again in December 2019. Since then, I have committed myself to painting and drawing with soft pastels. It is my preferred medium, due to the tactile, sculpting nature of laying down layers and bringing subjects to life. I have since undertaken various pet portrait commissions, as well as venturing into wildlife projects. As may be evident, I take much inspiration from my family of four springer spaniels. They are my constant companions, and life models...!


Having previously trained in chiropractic (both humans and animals) I have a solid understanding of anatomy. My work is characterized by colour and expression, and I enjoy the challenge of capturing a moment.
