Hello everyone and thank you for coming to my website!
I am Dragos Pepina, a 28 years old self-taught pet portrait and wildlife artist!
I am drawing since I was 9 years old and I never stopped since then.
I have a bachelor's degree in Physiotherapy but my love for art took me to another path.
I am originally from Romania but moved to Belgium 5 years ago.
I love to draw all kind of animals, from cats and dogs all the way to birds and other wildlife subjects, most often in colored pencil, pastel or graphite.
PET PORTRAIT ARTIST
MEET THE ARTIST
Thank you for visiting my website!
I am Dragos, a self-taught pastel pet portrait artist!
I have been drawing since I was 9 years old and never stopped since.
I am originally from Romania but I moved to Belgium a few years ago.
I love to draw all kinds of animals but mostly pet portraits.
My favorite medium used to be colored pencils but now I use only pastel.
Pastel makes me feel like I am painting with a pencil and I love how vibrant their colors are.
My go to art materials for my professional pet portraits are of high quality and lightfast pigment for long last bright colour.

My Materials 🎨
My Studio 🪑💡💻🌱
In my mini studio in Diest, Belgium I have my desk which I use for drawing and admin as well, storage for all my art supplies, lights, and a ton of plants ( just kidding, I have 20 plants but I wish I had a ton ).
My studio is actually half of my bedroom but I tried to make it as cozy as possible and I LOVE IT!
