My name is Kate Hill-Lines. I am an animal portrait artist, residing in Bedfordshire with my Husband, Rabbit and two Dogs.
I specialise in highly detailed, coloured pencil portraits of your furry (and not so furry) friends.
I have always had pets and loved drawing, but had never combined the two, until I was recovering from spine surgery in 2017. In need of something to occupy my mind., my mother-in-law bought me a sketch pad and some pencils, and I started drawing my dogs. It was only ever intended as a hobby, but more and more people asked me to draw their pets, and the rest as they say, is history.
I work using using Faber-Castell Polychromos pencils, Caran d'ache Luminance Pencils and acid-free, archival paper. I have chosen these materials for their quality and performance, ensuring that your art will last a lifetime.
I have recently partnered with the wonderful TreeSisters, who plant a tree for every portrait sold. Find out more by clicking the logo.
