About The Artist

Hello and welcome to “Pet Portraits With Soul”©

About Me:

My name is James Watts and I am a professional UK based animal “pet” portrait artist.

I have been an animal lover and keeper all of my life, growing up as a child surrounded by “many” different animals, from many domestic animals, to many somewhat “unusual” exotics (including mammals, reptiles and aquatics). I have also always had a passion for art, crafts and illustration.

After some life events, I was ultimately lead to where I am today and doing what I love. I am a self-taught artist and have been working on my craft for many years now and love being able to share my passion with others.

What I can offer you:

My aim is to truly capture the essence, of what you love so much about your companions. Bringing them “to life” with “lifelike” portraits, using your favourite photograph as my reference – enabling me to open the window into their “souls” for you to cherish, for many years to come.

Thank you for taking some time to get to know me as an artist. It would truly be my pleasure to get to paint for you too and to be able to add your wonderful companions to my portfolio, showcasing their beauty.

If you would like to keep up to date with my latest commissions and projects, please do follow me on social media. I try my best to keep as active as possible, whilst of course devoting my time to my artwork and my craft.
