About Me

Me and Merlin


I’m Siobhan. A freelance artist and illustrator working from my home studio in Wiltshire where I live with my partner and our wonderfully bouncy sprocker spaniel, Merlin.

I love to work with a variety of art mediums including both traditional and digital art. My favourite art tools are my inks, watercolours and pencils along with Procreate on my trusty iPad. Textures in my artwork make me happy so I’m always having fun and experimenting with new mediums and techniques.

I love to draw nature and anything animal related, including pet portraits. I’ve created many pet portraits since starting my business including lots of pet rats, cats and dogs. I’ve even had the opportunity to create a portrait of pet rats playing Dungeons & Dragons, a Queen rat and her royal mischief and a very grumpy hedgehog!

When I’m not buried under drawings, scribbling in a sketchbook or packing orders you can find me off having adventures in the countryside with my partner and Merlin, baking yummy cakes, starting many crochet and craft projects that then sit around waiting to get finished and Animal Crossing of course.
