Well, where to start! I began my art journey in late December 2020 - a friend jokingly commissioned a pet portrait of their partners beloved dog as a Christmas present. This was a lovely gesture but I hadn't picked up a pencil to draw in roughly a decade, still I took on the challenge with a can-do attitude as I always do. Within two months I had completed many more pet portraits for people all across the UK, then my first ever wildlife piece made it into the DSWF Wildlife Artist Of The Year - in association with the BBC Exhibition. Shortly after, many of my pet portraits made their way onto the set of The Crown - Season 5 on Netflix (albeit very far in the background!)

I have always loved all animals from big to small - colourful to plain. I believe they should all be celebrated and treated equally which is why I plan to support animal welfare and conservation through my wildlife art.

Thank you so so much for the two drawings you did of my lovely Thomas, you far exceeded my expectations.

It was also so nice to see the step by step stages of doing them, I had no idea where you would even start. I did have my drawings professionally framed, so happy I did, they are just perfect.

If you’re thinking of having any drawings done I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Ryan, he is first class, and such a nice guy too.

If I said thank you a thousand times it wouldn’t be enough - one happy bunny!

Ryan is an absolute incredible talent with an amazing ability to make our beloved pets come alive on paper. The detail that he is able convey is mind blowing especially the eyes, he manages to capture the life and soul of our special animals.

Not only is Ryan so so talented with his artwork, he is also a really lovely person. He is so easy to work with and always works with you to enable you to get the most out of his artwork and also honouring our pets to the best of his ability.

I can not recommend Ryan enough and I am so glad he was recommended to me originally as the artwork that he has completed for me has been mind blowing and is so precious.

I first discovered Ryan on Instagram back in July of 2021 and immediately contacted him to see if he would draw our beloved Treacle cat (sadly no longer with us) as a surprise Christmas gift for my husband. I was absolutely blown away by Ryan's other cat commissions and knew that Treacle was in safe hands.

Ryan was an absolute pleasure to deal with from start to finish, showing compassion and professionalism throughout. I have no hesitation in recommending him and wish him every success in his future endeavours.
