A veterinary nurse who turned her hand to painting pet portraits is hoping to raise money for a charity that helps re-home animals.

Natasha Pitts, 40, of Sandhills, began her pet portrait business last year after requests for her paintings, she did as a hobby, picked up.

The mother of two is holding a stall at HULA animal rescues anniversary celebration fete and dog show at Apsley Guise on Sunday, May 17.

Home For Unwanted And Lost Animals (HULA) has been helping animals and owners since 1972.

Natasha said: “I am donating 10% of any sales that are made through them and I will be donating 10% of any sales at the event.

“The charity does fantastic work and as an ex-veterinary nurse their cause is close to my heart.”

Natasha fits her painting and drawing around her sons, usually in the mornings and evenings, while they are at school and sleeping.

She said: “I love doing the portraits, I do sketching and painting, it has been a hobby for the last ten years and I am so happy that I now am able to turn that hobby into a career and look after the boys.

“I hope to raise quite a bit for the charity, they do such a great job re-homing lost and unwanted animals.”
