    Hey there!

    My name is Sabine Lackner and I’m an animal artist, creating lifelike animalportraits in pastels and I serve and help all animal enthusiasts, who want to dive into this amazing world of animal art.

    I draw with much love, passion, perseverance and patience lifelike animal portraits.

    Stroke by stroke, realistic drawings are created with horses, dogs, cats, yes pets of all kinds. The fascination of wild animals also does not let me go.
    It is very close to my heart to draw the beloved four-legged friends as lifelike as possible, and to capture the essence of the animals, to reflect their personal character. As they say, “The eyes are the gates to the soul”, so the eyes are very important to me in every portrait.
