About The Artist

PET PORTRAITS   by   Deborah Bates

​Hello, and welcome to my website.

I have been drawing for as long as I can remember, and specializing in the creation of commissioned portraits of domestic animals for over 30 years.

With a love of animals and a passion for bringing them to life on paper, I strive to create very realistic images, through the use of my favourite medium, coloured pencil. 

I have exhibited my work in many group shows over the years, but now work entirely on a commission basis, from my home in Tottenham, Ontario, Canada. 

​My work can be found in private collections across Canada.
