Realistic Pencil Colored Wildlife and Pet Portraits

Claire Milligan is a UK based self-taught freelance artist who specializes in highly detailed and realistic portraits. The recurring theme of her work is animals and birds that are created with colored pencils. She has a collection of over 300 different colors which enables her to create incredible detail that gives the surreal quality to her animal portraits. 

"I have been creating pet portraits since 2002 but it wasn't until 2015 that I made the move to make my dream a reality and I set up my business as a professional artist, and I haven't looked back since. I absolutely adore my job - I feel very lucky to be an artist for a living."  

She has created many pet portraits for her clients based in Canada, United States, Japan and Fuji. She has exhibited nationally and has won awards for her work. To view more of her work and to see her working behind the scenes visit her Instagram.
