My specialist printer turns my original animal designs into stunning animal homeware gifts for people who want lovely colourful things that are full of character. They’re robust enough to be used every day and not just saved for best. Simple care instructions are given for mugs, coasters and placemats that remind you of your favourite animals.

If you’re concerned about the use of animal products, you’ll be pleased that I use cruelty-free art materials wherever possible. Original and colourful animal paintings found here do not contain animal products, so they make a great gift for vegans and those that care about our animal friends! 

Your artwork and homeware gifts are carefully packaged to arrive in perfect condition, using recycled packaging materials wherever possible.

Where to see Caroline Skinner’s animal art

I’ve been drawing and painting for many years in various media, most recently using mainly acrylics and water-based oils, covering a wide range of subjects. Some of my paintings are found in private collections in the UK, Europe and USA. 

My art studio isn’t open to the public,  but see here for current details of where to see my work. Original wildlife paintings, prints, gifts and greeting cards and gifts are available at my exhibitions.

You can also find my full range through my various online outlets, including this website. I am also developing a homeware collection. Mugs, coasters, placemats, faux suede cushions, and tempered glass cutting boards for some of my paintings are now available here. Others can be added from my original designs at no extra charge, just get in touch.

You can find social media links for Caroline Skinner Art below. Do comment on my images and share them with your friends and family…

Please get in touch if there is a particular animal you would like me to paint!
