👩‍🎨 The Artist

I’m Nicki, an artist living and working in Sydney, specialising in highly detailed pet portraiture. I love drawing and animals, and through my Pawtraits I am lucky enough to combine the two. I strongly believe in a pet’s ability to enrich our lives and it gives me such pleasure to embrace that with my clients. If you’re anything like me, your pet is an important member of your family – what better way to celebrate that special bond you share!

A Pawtrait is a great gift, monument or simply a beautiful work of art. You will enjoy a lifetime of memories with it on your wall. I have high standards and will stop at nothing to ensure I have perfectly captured your pal.

Please have a browse of the website, and if you like, commission a Pawtrait of your own.

The Process


I use Fabriano Artistico hot pressed 300gsm paper, an acid free paper which guarantees long conservation and inalterability over time.


I use a combination of Faber-Castell Polychromos and Prismacolor pencils.

Say hi! 👋
