Welcome to my website

Hi. My name is Steph Dix, and I am a professional illustrator and artist. I'm based in Derbyshire, in the UK, although I receive commissions from all over the world. I run my pet portraits business from this website, producing colour and black and white dog, cat and horse portraits (and other animals and people too!). I also work as an illustrator for children's books, and create editorial artwork, via my agent Graham Cameron Illustration. I hope you enjoy the site. steph dix

How to commission a portrait

Simply email me at with a good quality photograph of the subject, along with your requirements. Have a look at my pricing page, and information on gift vouchers, and decide what you'd like.
I can usually work to fairly tight deadlines, although for Christmas in particular, it is essential to book as early as you can. I'll keep you updated as work progresses, and I do also offer a guarantee that if you are dissatisfied with the final portrait, you don't have to pay anything at all.
