Terri Peay Illustration was established by Terri in 2014. Terri studied BA Textiles and MA Illustration at the Arts University Bournemouth and now paints as a professional pet portrait artist. Alongside painting, Terri designs products inspired by the beautiful landscapes of Dorset and with help from from her sister, Emma and Mum, Jackie, the family team are very proud to say all of our illustrated products are designed in our Dorset studio and most can be personalised or custom made.

Terri is more than happy to accept commissions. If you have any designs in mind that you would like created in to a particular painting or product, please contact us here!

Terri looks after the day to day running of Terri Peay Illustration and illustrates all of the designs, alongside crafting most of the products seen on the website. 

"Since the day I picked up my first pencil as a young child I've always loved drawing, the feeling of creating something, an image from a blank page that didn’t exist until I made that mark has always fascinated me. I've always had a passion for painting animals and animal conservation. I even used to create my own animal card designs as a child, (complete with hand-drawn barcode on the back!) featuring my family’s beloved pets, as well as creatures I came across growing up in rural Dorset.
I have the most supportive family who help me no end with the business and I was fortunate enough to study 
BA (Hons) Textiles & MA Illustration at the Arts University Bournemouth and that allowed me to develop my love of illustration and design, paving the way for me to set up my own business and since then I've never really looked back!"
