Artist Bio

Anna McNicholl

My name is Anna and I love drawing pictures of pets and other animals. 

It makes their fur parents so happy when they see them as a work of art!

I live in Auckland, New Zealand with Simon and our rescue silver tabby cat Portia.

Check out my work and let me know if you have any questions.

Will also take commissions for other sizes and types of art works in charcoal, oil pastel and colored pencil.   Will draw anything pretty much!

Jameison & Cara

Jameison & Cara, much love miniature schnauser fur kids of Brenda and Stephen.  I think they may be spoilt (in a good way).


Harry is a sweet, cuddly boy.  He likes his fur vacummed by Mum and dad Nats and Simon !

Panda for Patti

Pandas are so lovely and black and white drawings suit them so well.

Prickles & Spike

A friend from work, Dale, and I sold prints of our drawings to raise money for the SPCA.  We raised over $1,000 NZD in 2018 and hope to make it more each year.

Tui in oil pastel

One of New Zealand's native birds.  Pastel is nice to work with...kind of looks like an oil painting without waiting for the drying time and making a mess.
