Welcome to Original Art by Claire Read

Portraits of your favourite pet or much loved family members can be painted or drawn on request. However, if you prefer artwork with a more contemporary edge then my contemporary portraits or abstract paintings may be of interest. I do commissions for both portraits and abstracts. Please take a look at the galleries if you would like to see any of my artwork, or if you are interested in buying any of my creations, please contact me. The galleries will be updated on a regular basis with any new paintings that I do.


Featured Work: “Dylan”

This painting was a commission piece, and was of a much loved pet Springer Spaniel called Dylan.  It was to be a Christmas present from a daughter to her father in memory of their precious pet dog who sadly passed away a few months earlier. 

Client Testimonial
"Thank you so much for the wonderful painting of Dylan. It was a great idea for a Christmas present! My dad loved it and straight away commented on how you'd captured Dylan's character and quirky features. It has now taken pride of place on our living room wall."
