Pet Portraits

Scratchboard Art

I create timeless portraits of creatures great and small. I’d love to create one for you.

My name is Monika Barbian, I am a pet portrait and wildlife artist living in South Gippsland in regional Victoria.

I specialise in creating beautifully detailed life like animal portraits in coloured pencil and scratchboard. I love to focus on the eyes to bring the piece to life and capture the animal’s true personality.  As William Shakespeare is credited as saying, ‘The eyes are the window to your soul’

You can commission a bespoke pet portrait or wildlife piece and I also have a range of original artwork, prints and greeting cards for sale, available through my online store.
