About Me

My name is Irina Petrova and I’m originally from Russia. I’ve been living and working in the UK for many years. Since 2010 I’ve been a professional pet portrait artist, working from my home studio in Gloucester. 

I enjoy painting a variety of subjects but pet portraits are my speciality. If you are looking for a portrait of your dog, cat or horse and you like the quality of my work please contact me for more information.

Irina Petrova - Pet Portrait Artist

Irisha the artist

Painting and drawing has been a lifelong passion. I’ve been a professional artist for some years and enjoy all subjects. My specialty is pet portraits from photos. I receive commissions from all over the UK and some from overseas. 

I’m very flexible in trying to meet the needs of the customer. I’m able to create a pet portrait containing two or more subjects, even if you provide separate photos of the two pets. Many clients want a straight, classic pet portrait but I am also able to create pet portraits with some humour if this is preferred. 

A look at my gallery to see some examples of my previous work will give a good guide as to what I am able to offer. 

I email clients a digital image of their finished pet portrait and there is no obligation to buy the finished portrait until you are completely satisfied with the result.
