– Now offering online art tutorials on Patreon –

My name is Zara Toms, based in Hampshire in the UK, specialising in detailed pet portraits and wildlife art.  I am self taught and strive to achieve highly detailed, realistic portraits of your much loved pets. A painting or drawing is a very special way of capturing memories, taking pride of place in your home, and being able to be cherished for years to come. A portrait has significant sentimental value and therefore make great  gifts to friends and family.

Many hours work goes into every portrait to capture as much detail as I can. If you would like to request a commission or would like further information, please don’t hesitate to contact me on zara.toms@hotmail.co.uk
Visit my Facebook page for regular updates and to see some of my work in progress.

About the artist
I am self taught and have worked with dogs my entire life. In 2016 I made the leap as a full time artist which I absolutely love. February 2021 I then started offering online art tutorials and it’s something that I am really enjoying.

This photo below is me and my baby Maisey. My best friend and constant companion and one of my favourite photographs of us both was taken during a  holiday in Scotland. Maisey lost the use of her back legs in 2014 at the age of 5. She is now 12.5 years old and despite all the challenges and poor prognosis she made an amazing recovery and regained the use of her legs. I am grateful every day for her defying all the odds and learning to walk again. She is my little miracle.
