my story

I am a professional working artist from Swords, Co. Dublin with over 20 years of experience providing a premium service of commissioned canine portrait paintings in Ireland. I qualified with a Bachelor’s degree in Art in Industry and Design in 1994, continued my career into the animation & illustration industries.

My canine portraits developed from my absolute passion & love for dogs.

My very first dog fell into my life as I walked into work one day to Fred Wolf Films back in 1997, where I worked as a scenic artist at the time. We took him in as a rescue & named him Fion, a black German Shepherd who was never meant to live past his first night.

Thankfully, he survived & continued to live with us for another 17 years. Fion’s legacy lives on today as we took in our latest two rescue dogs Kendo & Yogi from ‘Dogs in Distress’, 6 years with us today.

About Canine Portraits

Parker

“Rachelle O’Regan is an AMAZING artist. Just one of her talents is the most fantastic pet portraits. She manages to capture the very essence of what makes your pet, your pet, along with such exquisite detail, so much so, that you feel you could reach in and run your fingers through their fur. I can’t recommend her highly enough. Anyone who knows my boy Parker, knows this is him to a tee.” Moya O Kennedy

Doogle (memorial portrait painting)

“Rachelle is a gifted artist. She captured the essence and personality of our dog, Doogle in her painting. It was like looking into his eyes again when we looked at the painting – his eyes were so lifelike. I commissioned Rachelle to paint Doogle after he passed away so that my Mum could have a piece of him still in her home. It was a very special gift. I would highly recommend Rachelle!!! She is great to work with and you couldn’t find a more talented canine artist!” Louise Delaney
