A warm welcome to The China Dawgs website.
I specialise in hand painting high quality, fine art pet portraits on mugs using ceramic paint.
Miniature portraits with purpose!
Cats, dogs, hamsters, horses, otters; I can paint whatever takes your fancy!
Great to have you here.
HI! I'm Annie. I live with my gorgeous rescue dogs Bobby, Judy and Digby by a beautiful wooded lake , situated in Hampshire, England.
It all started 5 years ago when i attended an evening art taster class at an Adult college after work, keen to do something creative.
From there I started painting and I couldn't stop; I sketched most of my friends and family that same week. Enrolling in a portraiture class at Heatherly's School of Art, London, I set about developing my skills in oil painting and started doing commissions for friends and family. You can see my work at my website annabelrecord.co.uk
To raise funds for dogs in need (which is a huge passion of mine) I started to paint dog for adoption on mugs to raise money for desperate abandoned and dog abuse cases abroad. People started to request commissions after i posted a few of my painted mugs on Facebook.
Throughout my life I had always felt so torn when it came to my career path. Work with animals and or paint?
So I decided I could combine the two!
