Pets, Wildlife & People Artist
My name is Janice Kutzner and I am a self taught artist living in Surrey, in the UK. As an artist I specialise in realistic, highly detailed pastel portraits of pets, animals and people. I work with great care and precision to ensure every detail is captured faithfully and creating each portrait is a time-consuming process that requires many hours of work. As an animal enthusiast, I have a deep affection for these creatures and even own three cats of my own. In fact, I entered a portrait that I drew of one of my cats into the prestigious SAA Artist of the Year 2021 competition, and I was thrilled to be awarded the Supporting Artist of the Year 2021 Award!
My portraits go beyond just being a mere photo; they have the power to immortalise a moment in time, preserving the memory of cherished individuals both past and present. These portraits will be treasured for a lifetime, and they make for exceptional and distinctive gifts for special occasions, infusing a space with character and warmth, while also instilling a sense of pride.
I have drawn many different breeds of dogs, cats and horses for people all over the world and I am looking forward to drawing many more!
If you have any questions what so ever please don't hesitate to contact me.
I have now been accepted as an official member of
The International Guild of Realism
"Janice showed her amazing talent in bringing a blurred photo of my cat to life. The detail in her work is outstanding, I am over the moon with the finished piece. She is an incredibly talented artist."
"After seeing some of Janice Kutzner's amazing artwork on her FB page, we decided to commission a portrait of the newest member of the family - Vladi. My partner and I were both blown away by the attention to detail on the colours, spots and patterns she incorporated in Vladi's face. We even tried to spot the differences and they were non-existent. For my friends back home in Canada she can also send by courier internationally. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a beautiful drawing of their pets. I'll be following your page and looking forward to the next beautiful portraits."
"It was so well packaged. It's even nicer in real life. I really do love it so much. Thank you again Janice, you worked so hard on it & I shall treasure it forever. Thank you so much for putting so much effort, time and love into your work. It truly is one of the most treasured things I think I will ever own. Having it on my wall makes me feel like Clarissa is back with me, for which I will be forever in your debt. Thank you from the bottom of my heart."
"I commissioned a picture of my cat Mou. Janice did an amazing job, exactly what I wanted. She captured his colour and eyes perfectly. It was also completed a good time before I expected it. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her work. You will never regret it! Thank you Janice. I love it."
"Astonishing!!!! Unbelievable!! You need to be on TV, wooooow we are so impressed!."
"I'm thrilled with the beautiful drawing!! I can look at it dozens of times a day where it's hung. Just LOVE it!!"
"I saw some pieces of work Janice shared in our local craft group on Facebook and was completely taken by them. We'd recently lost our cat, my children's first pet and wanted to do something to keep her memory alive. I sent a few photos to Janice and she said she'd be able to work from them. She kept me updated when she started the drawing and then soon after advised me it was finished and ready for collecting. We absolutely love it and would thoroughly recommend Janice to anyone looking for a drawing of their pet. Thank you so much."
"I recently commissioned a portrait of all of my pets. Janice has done an amazing job and I couldn't be happier with the end result. I would highly recommend her skills and she has captured them all beautifully."
"Janice painted a beautifully detailed portrait of our cat Ringo - a birthday present for my wife. She absolutely adores the picture, as do I! Highly recommend Janice if you are looking for a special memento to keep forever."
"We wanted a portrait of our eldest cat, he' 16 years old and very precious in our lives. We sent a message to Janice Kutzner Art, asking if she could draw our cat Spike. We were truly amazed with the finished outcome and both overwhelmed, at the brilliance that Janice has done. I would highly recommend her if you wanted your pet drawn by someone who is very detailed and meticulous in what they do. Simply brilliant!!"
