About : Mel Newing Art - Artist based in Basildon, Essex

I am a self taught animal & pet portrait artist living in Essex, UK.  I offer commission work of beloved pets as well as providing original works for sale of various domestic and wild animals.  

I’ve been developing my technique since 2012, most recently adding colour ink into my repertoire, and learning all about the wonders of acrylics and oils (it’s messy and it’s awesome!).  I completed a Pet Portrait Diploma with the London Art College in June 2017, gaining a Distinction for my work, and I’m keen as beans to add more works into my collection, hopefully grabbing your attention and keeping you wanting more!

I find drawing both relaxing and meditative, for me it’s a great way to chill out after a hard day in the “proper job”, and I can get carried away for hours on end, head stuck into a drawing, cuppa always at hand, pooch keeping me company by my feet. 

I am grateful to be given the opportunity to add my work ontp this wonderful site, so I can offer more choice for you with purchases of my art.  Shold you wish to view my original works, please visit, and view my gallery section.
