About Us

I started out as a Countryside Ranger using photography to capture local wildlife for use in engaging people with their local environment.

However the equipment and resources available to me then, limited my options.

Encouraged by early attempts at animal portraits using graphite pencils, I then had a go at using color pencils and pastels.

I became hooked!

Currently my favorite subjects are animal and bird portraits. I like focusing in on the details of a particular expression to emphasize each individual’s character and mood.

I hope you enjoy exploring my artwork and that you find a portrait that is of interest!


Best Wishes,


Jaclyn Reid
