Meriel Burden Animal Art
Joyful, authentic portraits created with love, care and heart
Meet The Artist
Hello and welcome to the home of my fine art pet portraits.
My name is Meriel Burden. I’m a passionate animal lover, and qualified veterinary nurse, with an honours degree in Fine Art (painting). My days are filled painting dogs, cats, horses and other creatures from my home studio in Kirk Michael in the Isle of Man. I share my space with two Swedish Vallhund puppers, Tippi and Captain Varg, and Pharaoh Hound Orla, who do a good job making sure I spend some time with them on the beach or up in the hills daily!
I have been painting pets professionally for 20 years. So you can be assured that I will create for you a portrait, together with the kind of service, that both you and your pet (or that of a loved one) deserve.
I will paint not only a true likeness of your furry family member, I will also make sure that his or her character shines through in every stroke of the brush or pastel. I want your portrait to be full of the joy that your pet brings to your life.
I love to hear stories about the pets I paint too, so don’t be shy about telling me them!
Have a look at the galleries here on my website, and if you feel I am the artist to paint your very special animal friend then click on the pages "How to Commission a Portrait" and “Price Guide For Portraits” in the menu to find out more.
