Welcome to Paragon Pet Portraits

Paragon: A model of excellence or perfection of a kind; a peerless example

Fine Art Animal Portraiture by Pastel Artist Paul Smith.


Latest news! : Paragon Pet Portraits will have a stall at the upcoming Green Hammerton Country fayre on July the 10th 2016. Please visit their site for
more details.



If, like me, you consider the animals in your life to be more than pets and rather to be a cherished part of your family, then you will appreciate their character and likeness captured in a timeless image.

Created entirely by hand using high quality pastels and with exquisite attention to detail, my portraits are an ideal gift for that special occasion or can serve as a cherished memory for many years.

Produced from your photographs, I will capture the spirit and personality that makes your pet so special, a unique image of a unique animal.

Your portrait can be tracked "On the Easel" for full customer satisfaction.

Browse through the Gallery to see examples of my work and check out the  Photo Guide for advice about effective reference pictures.
