Roseanna Chetwood specialises in capturing beloved pets on canvas. She knows personally what a profound impact pets can make to someone’s life and she enjoys connecting with people who share that experience. Specialising in pet portraiture means every time she paints she gets to pay tribute to the character of an individual pet which enriches their owner’s life and that’s a beautiful thing to capture.
She feels at her most creative when she has a palette knife in her hands. She loves to use them to create a bold, sculptural surface of thick paint. The result is a fresh and modern style of pet portrait.
She graduated with a degree in Fine Art from the Birmingham Institute of Art and Design back in 2013. Since then she has spent her life painting, honing her skills and searching for her unique style. Her eureka moment came in 2017 when she relented and listened to her Dad’s advice to swap her paint brushes in for palette knives; She picked up her first palette knife and her art career took off with her Palette Knife Pets series. There is a lesson to be learnt here… listen to your parents!
