Welcome to my world
Hi, welcome to Pipistrelle Art, my name is Phaedra and I am an artist, specialising in bespoke animal drawings.
After working in an office for more than 25 years I decided to pursue my dream of working for myself doing something I love. I have always drawn pictures, as a child designing my own Birthday and Christmas cards, including the poetry inside each card. I then progressed to copying album covers especially of my favourite band of the 80’s, Marillion, whose artwork always inspired me.
I have always been interested in Astrology and as a teenager designed my own zodiac pictures, which are being redesigned to become part of my portfolio. I have a love for nature and animals: fur, feather and scales. I enjoy drawing Animals and seeing the beauty in the patterns and colours which never ceases to fill me with wonder.

SCOTTISH STAG Colour
I’ve been really enjoying doing these circular drawings, they haven’t been for commissioned work, just for fun.
This is an Ink Drawing I did of 2 Hares fighting in the Moonlight. I enjoyed working on this as Hares are one of my favourite animals and they are mystical in folklore.
SPINEY BUSH VIPER
Meet the Spiney Bush Viper, he is a beautiful example of how snakes can be so colourful and attractive (to me anyway!). I love drawing reptiles as they have such beautiful patterns and colours. It can be quite challenging as each scale, although looking the same, are sometimes quite different. This was drawn using Caran D’Ache Watercolour Pencils.
