Portraits That Bite

Welcome to Sally's Art Gallery where you may purchase Originals and Fine Art Reproductions of acrylic mixed media paintings or commission a Pet Portrait.

Sally is enjoying the versatility of the acrylic paint medium by combining it with mixed media including texture paste, gold leaf and glitter. Sally's artworks are inspired by nature, particularly Native Australian animals.

"In these times of worldwide pandemic, global warming plus war in some parts of the world I think it is refreshing to escape to the beauty of our natural countryside and appreciate the wildlife it supports. As humans we need to have a focus on preserving our planet and not just using it's resources until nothing remains. Thus the focus of my art is: - Our beautiful planet earth and it's native creatures." Quotes Sally

Sally creates Pet Portrait Commissions with Acrylics and Mixed media on canvas or Soft Pastels on archival paper.

Testimonials Pet Portrait Commissions - Immortalize Your Special Friend

Rocky and Lilly Dog Portrait commission in pastel

My husband loved it! It blew his socks off! He can usually guess what I will get him for his birthday but this year I bowled him over. So thankyou once again Sally. To say everyone loved it is an understatement.

Bev Chilvers of Brisbane Australia

Precious Dog portrait commission in pastel.

I was extremely pleased with our finished portrait of Precious. Sally was great to work with and interpreted our photo of Precious just as she is. Sally captured her personality and the features that make her so dear to us.

Joanne Cotton of Brisbane Australia

Clemmie Dog portrait commission in pastel.

The portrait was a huge success. Everyone loved it and all thought it was Clemmie to a tee. My sister was just overcome when she was given the portrait as it was her dog almost alive again. She is hanging the portrait in pride of place next to the door which Clemmie always used. I will be having Sally draw my own collies for my birthday next year.

Robyn Chapman of Brisbane Australia

Jeremiah Cat portrait commission in pastel.

What a total surprise! Jeremiah is so lifelike with the sparkle in his eye and the haughty expression. You have captured him completely. Thankyou for all the trouble you have gone to to create a lasting memory. This is certainly one portrait that bites!

Tracey and Mike Perry of Adelaide Australia

Breeze Dog portrait in pastel awarded at the Australian Dog Agility Association Grand Prix 2008

Sally has managed to capture my dogs true character and personality and that extra special sheltie 'aloofness' that the breed has... the expression that is portrayed in his eyes is remarkable. I will now have a true and lifelike reminder of mu friend and companion for all eternity.

Sassie Dog pet portrait commission in pastel.

My husband commissioned a pastel portrait of Sassie for our anniversary. I've never seen anything as perfect and that captures not only her looks but more importantly her personality. i will be forever grateful that she will live on forever.

Justine Ware of Brisbane Australia

Shai Dog pet portrait commission in pastel.

I was so impressed by the pics you sent me on email. I never imagined it could get better! The detail is quite amazing - fur, eye, mouth and brindle markings are perfect. Shai had a gentle nature and a beautiful soul and to see that come through in your work is more than I could have hoped for. Every time I look at her portrait I smile. And I know it will bring a smile to everyone who knew her for years to come. Your work is beautiful and it must be a great feeling to bring so much joy to animal lovers!

Robyn Horewood of Perth Australia

Ruby Tuesday Horse Pet Portrait Commission in pastel.

Sally. When you sent me a work in progress of my beautiful Ruby Tuesday it brought tears to my eyes. Thankyou so much for catching her beauty and her spark so intricately. You have done an amazing job of my darling girl.

Rebecca Tedder of Melbourne Australia


The print arrived in perfect condition! I can't wait to get it framed and to put it up on the wall to enjoy it daily. :)

Thankyou so much again.

We absolutely love our print of Rainbows In Gum Blossom. The colour and texture of the original painting show so clearly. Looking forward to hanging it in our home.
