Welcome to Barbara Marie Art
Artist from Manilva, Spain who specialises in pet portraits
Hi, my name is Barbara Marie. I live in Manilva, Spain, which is very close to Gibraltar, and I am from the UK.
I was trained as an Artist at Manchester College of Art & Design, and have had a varied career in Fashion. For the past 20 years, I have been able to dedicate more of my time to painting and in particular to my favourite subjects of Animals and Pet Portraits. My favourite mediums are pastels, pencils, and oil paints. I paint detailed hand drawn portraits, aiming to capture the personality of the subject.
I use the best quality pastels and pastel pencils on pastelmat card or board.
I am open for commissions and am particularly looking forward to painting your beautiful pets. A portrait makes a special gift and a wonderful decorative addition to your home.
For portraits of both people and animals I work from good resolution photographs, which I can take or are supplied by the client.
If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact me.
