Information-Sophie Bliss Art
I currently provide Original Fine Art, Giclee Prints & Pet Portraits. Pet Portrats are based on client’s own reference photos in professional Graphite or professional Coloured Pencils.
All pet portraits are 100% hand drawn. You can visit the various gallery’s on here to see the quality and full range of work which has been produced. You will also find a "Details Gallery" where you will be able to see sections of my work up close.
Original Fine Art & Giclee Prints can be found under the "Animal Encounters Gallery" tab. Prices are listed on each piece of work. You can also find some more colourful "Creative Creatures" which are for sale for only £20 each + £2 postage for the UK that can be found in the "Creative Creatures Gallery".
For all other prices regarding pet portraits please see the "Commission a Pet Portrait" page for more details.

I am based in Kettering, Northamptonshire, UK and have been drawing and painting for as long as I can remember, exhibiting my first piece of artwork in the Alfred East Gallery at the early age of 4. This was followed by winning numerous art competitions throughout school where I studied Art Textiles and Design achieving the highest grade possible.
This led me to be voted the "most popular and moving Artist" by the general public at the "The one life we have" Art exhibition held in Sharnbrook in July 2010. Which lead to the honour of being presented with the "Vox Humana Art Award".
Since then I have continued to produce a wide collection of Artwork. I have worked on a lot of commission pieces, resulting in my art reaching numerous countries around the world, as far as Australia! I am now mainly focusing on Pet Portraits and being able to provide clients with happy memories of their beloved pets.
I have also studied Pet Portraits at the London Arts College receiving a distinction in 2019. This has broadened my knowledge and the mediums that I will be able to offer in the future, so please keep an eye out if you are looking for a portrait to be completed in Oils or Acrylics…
Each year I also support the Twitter Art Exhibition and donate a piece of artwork with 100% of proceedings going to the chosen charity. So far, the chosen charities are as follows and you can read more about TAE here: http://twitterartexhibit.org/
