About

Katrin Snell

Pet Portrait and Wildlife Artist


 Katrin is a self taught Artist working mainly in Acrylic Paint and light fast acid free Coloured Pencil. 

 Growing up in South Yorkshire she has drawn and painted since she could hold a pencil. Katrin has always had pets and a love for Wildlife, as children her family had dogs, cats, a rabbit, guinea pigs, hamsters and fish.

 Walking in the Yorkshire countryside with their dogs was a part of our daily routine.

Katrin relocated when she was 16 to West Somerset, now living in West Somerset at the foot of the  Quantock hills which she can see from her back garden and also close to Exmoor. Katrin lives with her husband, 3 young boys and their two springer spaniels Alfie and Barney, spending  a lot of time outside  exploring the surrounding countryside and spending their summers in North Devon. All these  landscapes and their wildlife inspire Katrin in her artwork.

‘I have a real passion for my art, always developing new techniques and finding new materials.’
