Inspired by amazing dogs, their stories and their "people",
Joe Adams creates beautiful dog portraits.
"To see each animal's emotion come to life at the end of a pencil or brush
and then be privilaged to enjoy the owner's initial reaction is amazing!
One of the greatest benefits of doing these portraits is when the dog owner and artist
collaborate in raising awareness and funding for dog rescue groups."

Commission a Drawing or Oil Painting

Traditional dog portraits, showing a single dog or a group of dogs
can be commissioned as simple drawings or complex oil paintings.

Personafied dog portraits are developed by the owner's interpretation
of their dog's personality and a collaborative effort with the artist.
Joe will research historical images and create costume design drawings
and color studies before going ahead with the painting process.

Clear photos that show detail and personality are needed for drawing reference.
Joe can provide a photo shoot or work directly from the owner's photos.
