About the artist


My name is Karina Wiles and I am a pet portrait and landscape
artist currently living in West Sussex.

My friends tell me that I am fortunate enough to have a
gift. A gift for painting and drawing which has enabled
me to share and to provide many people over the
years, with a personal and everlasting memento of
their dog, cat or horse or meaningful landscape.

I find the creative process therapeutic and there
is nothing more rewarding than seeing the
overwhelming positive responses to my work when
delivered to the owners.

I use pastel pencils for pet portraits, which give me
more control for the details. Working on coloured
paper allows for tonal and complementary blending of
the animal design. I also use both pastel pencils on paper
and acrylics on canvas for landscapes.

I hope that you enjoy viewing my artworks and please don't
hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or would like
to commission either a pet or landscape painting!
