About Us


Creature & Cub started as a little side project I loved spending time on. Now it is a passion I get to do every day, and I have pet lovers like you to thank for this.

My business isn’t just me though. It’s my black (sometimes surly) cat Angus and my motley mutt Humfrey too.

These guys are my sidekicks. They make me laugh and inspire me. They dodge the paint I spill on the carpet and watch me pour love and care into the portraits I create.

Along with patting new dogs at the park and drinking copious cups of tea, painting portraits of people’s furry friends is my favourite thing to do.

I love experimenting with how watercolours blend together to create an organic and beautiful effect, and I adore making sure the special personality of your pet shines through.

Before I was a freelancer, I studied a Bachelor of Fine Arts at the University of Western Australia and a Graduate Diploma in Applied Communication (Graphic Design) at The Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology.

These days, I love hanging with my fur-squad and painting portraits of the dogs, cats and other animals that make your life so special.

If you’d like to know more about me and my fur gang, here is an article Australia Post wrote about us. 

Thank you for taking the time to get to know us a little bit more!

Love Jade
