Gifts, Other, Paintings & drawings
Emma, the artist behind Studio Peersbased, is based in Queenstown, Central Otago. She loves paints custom Pet Portraits with a quirky twist and other iconic New Zealand illustrations and more.
When you commission a pet portrait, you can add accessories to your little fur baby like glasses or maybe a bowtie or you can choose to have without and simply add their name.
Emma has a real passion for painting animals and loves to be able to create a piece of custom art that holds so much meaning for the pet owner. She donates 10% of all Portrait Commission sales to the SPCA, so not only will you be supporting a local artist but also helping animals in need throughout New Zealand.SKU: n/a

The Drawing Guy
Joel Bolton, a.k.a The Drawing Guy, has pursued three passions consistently and persistently since early childhood – Music, Art and Languages.
He throws himself fully into life as pianist, flautist, occasional trombonist, conductor, music teacher, artist and prolific learner of languages.
Although art has often played a secondary role due to music and family commitments, it has maintained a constant presence in his life.
In 1993 he took a year off to study oil painting and portraiture. Some excellent teaching, combined with specialist workshops, sparked a love affair with the oil medium and he has spent many years honing his skills in this area.
In recent times coloured pencil has taken on a more important role. Not only is it less messy than oils but it also has a wonderful soft and fine quality ideally suited to the rendering of animal fur.
Joel Bolton has been a finalist three times in the Adam Portraiture Award and two times in the Impressions National Art Award.SKU: n/a
