Kay Prior
Pet portrait artist
& Cloth doll maker

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 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 artwork, I now also have a thriving sideline creating and selling characterful OOAK artisan cloth dolls.
My venture into dollmaking began from a simple mission to find a traditional style "rag" doll for my granddaughter, after finding nothing to fit the bill, I tried my hand at making one and enjoyed the process (and the result) I now have a small army of little individuals who have a growing band of fans and collectors throughout the UK and overseas

I live in Sussex with my husband and our dog who both keep me on my toes and thankfully tolerate the "little folk"  invading the house.
