Pet Portraits | Framed Prints | Art

Welcome to The Curious Creative 

Hello, and welcome to The Curious Creative, my name’s Justin and I’m an East Sussex based artist, specialising in pet portraits. That said, I enjoy painting pretty much anything and I’m open to any sort of commission.

If you’d like to commission a bespoke and creative pet portrait, visit the Pet Portraits page for more details, and get in touch if you’d like to commission me.

Take a look at some of my feedback, if you’d like to see what previous customers have said about their pet portraits.

Some of my paintings are available as exclusive fine art Giclee framed prints which are supplied ready to hang.
There are also unframed print options available in a variety of sizes, as well as greeting cards and canvas prints.
These aren’t available anywhere else and stock is limited. Check out the shop for more details.

I hope you enjoy my work. If you have any questions, take a look at my FAQ, or simply contact me.

Pet Portraits

Commission a bespoke, hand made, creative pet portrait.

You can choose between unframed or fully framed and ready to hang options. A selection of frames are available, with options to choose your own frame and customise to your specific requirements. All portraits are Giclee printed on fine art archival paper which resists degradation and colour fade for 100+ years.

I’m also open for commissions to paint pretty much anything!

A painting is a unique and very personal way to remember a person, place, or moment in our lives…or anything else for that matter. A few examples could be a newborn (or a new car!) in the family, a place that’s extra special to you, or a loved one you’d like to remember. The possibilities are endless.

If you have something in mind, simply get in touch with me and have a chat about it.

How do I paint people without making them look weird?!

As you know, I predominantly paint pet portraits, with the odd bird, wolf, landscape or inanimate object thrown in for good measure. Recently though I’ve wanted to broaden my horizons and do more portraits, only of people this time. Now, a portrait of an actual person...
