Roo Maurice is The Pawtrait Artist, mum of two girls, three canines and a fiancé with a wedding planned for 2020.

Roo’s love of art and animals has been a talent and passion all her life. Having had a successful 25 year career working in Film and TV as a hair and make-up designer, through great demand for Roo’s work Pawtrait artist was created.

Due to Roo’s film and tv career Roo has a big following of celebrity clients. A perfectionist, Roo’s attention to detail enables her to create stunning pieces of art that are both original and personally bespoke, collectible, something to invest in and treasure. 

For her pastel realism pawtrait commissions, Roo uses the highest quality Pastel pencils to create photo lifelike pieces of art.

The black & white digital prints are hand drawn using the apple pencil and iPad pro, still working from a photo but creating a more contemporary and affordable take on a pet pawtrait. The detail sketch form looks stunning on a large scale print or even added to accessories and home interior soft furnishings.


As well as pastel and digital drawings Roo also paints wildlife animals, seascapes and pop art onto canvas, originals can be commissioned or purchased on here with limited edition prints as well as animal and pawtrait themed accessories available in the shop too.
