Introducing Mary Herbert, animal and portrait artist...

I’m a full time professional artist based in Ceredigion, Wales, originally from Leicestershire. I specialise in pastel portraits.  I love to paint animals, especially horses and dogs, and I’m always happy to consider commissioned portrait work of any animal or person. I also offer tuition

Here on my website, you can discover more about me and my art in the ‘Insight’ section, or simply browse my horse pictures, dog pictures, and other commissioned artwork in the portrait galleries.

If you’d like to discuss a portrait, have any comments to make, or there is anything you’d like to ask me that isn’t in the information section, please feel free to contact me.
