Artwork and dolls  by Kay Prior

About me 

I am a Sussex based, mainly self taught, artist, specialising in commissioned pet portraits and original landscapes.  
I began taking commissions for  pet portraits in 2007 and have continued to serve clients far and wide, painting lasting mementoes of their beloved companion animals ever since.
I offer both traditional paintings created on physical paper or canvas and modern digital works which can be sent via e-mail and printed by the customer at will.
Along side my painting work I also create and sell individual, characterful, artisan cloth dolls who enjoy a growing band of fans and  collectors throughout the UK

I live in Sussex with my husband and our two crazy dogs who keep us on our toes and accompany me on my adventures, seeking reference for new paintings.
They are also rather fascinated by the "small people" invading my studio.
