RJ Art, Crafts & Upcycled Furniture

Bespoke & Unique Art Work

Welcome to RJArts.

Hi there! Thank you for visiting my website.

I am an artist based in Preston, Lancashire. I love painting birds and wildlife but will give pretty much anything a go! I specialise in Pet Portraits and upcycled furniture. My furniture is somewhat different to the usual 'shabby chic' styles you often find online. I add an original painting to each of my pieces meaning each item is entirely unique and original.

You can commission paintings or Upcycled Furniture or buy one of my prints or original pieces or just simply enjoy a look about the site at some of the lovely things on offer.

I also run Arts & Crafts events in the North West. I'm always looking for talented artists, makers, authors etc, to make our events diverse and unique, so please feel free to register you interest, if this sound of interest to you.

If you have any queries or questions, please don't hessitate to get in touch.


Pet Portraits are my most popular commissioned work, however I'm willing to give anything a go! If you have an idea, I'll try and make it into a reality, from monsters to human portraits, to landscapes.

Sizes vary from A5 to A1 and commissions can be provided with or without frames and mounts.

Please contact for more details.

If you want something entirely unique for your wedding day, why not commission a painting and generate your invites and wedding stationary from it? With a background in Graphic & Web Design, I can create your own personal painting, then create invites,

seating arrangements and even a bespoke website should this be something you'd like to utilise. If you'd like to give your family or close friends a memorable gift from the day, prints of your original can be arranged.

Please contact for more details.


Friends of RJArts

Whilst developing as an artists and expanding my horizons in the 'art business' I have accrued some great friends who have helped me in some way whilst on my artistic journey. I wanted to dedicate an area of my site to those people, giving them a further opportunity to help them reach a wider audience with their individual arts and styles.

Check out some of their work on the 'Friends of' page.
