Gunilla loves horses and has for as long as she can remember. She spent a lot of time with horses, horse-back riding and working in stables.

If you look under the shop tab, you can find information on how to commission an animal or pet portrait by Gunilla Wachtel. Commissions are for pencil artwork only. We know how important your animals are to you. Whether they are here in physical presence or they have passed, animals are always part of the family. Rest assured that if you commission a portrait, Gunilla will work on it as diligently and with as much passion as if it were one of their own animals. Pets are never just "pets." An animal is never just an animal. They are so much, incredibly more.

Gunilla's focus is on pencil artwork, but if you look through the shop categories, you can also find works in other media. We also print our own, gorgeous prints in studio to ensure you get that personal touch!
