About Me

My name is Sabine and I am drawing lifelike animal portraits with a lot of love, passion, perseverance and patience.


Line by line, realistic drawings of horses, dogs, cats and even pets of all kinds are created.

The fascination of the wild animals can't let go of me either.


For many pet owners, their pets are part of the family, part of their hearts, they are part of their lives and are loved with body and soul!

For me it is a wonderful job to be able to portray the animals. It is very important to me to draw the beloved four-legged friends as lifelike as possible, to capture the nature of the animals, to reflect their personal character.


“The eyes are the gates to the soul” they say, which is why the eyes are very important to me in my pet portraits.


Every time I send one of my works on a journey to its owners, I always find it difficult to say goodbye, because the work involves a lot of passion,

love and heart and soul. However, knowing that there is someone who is heartily happy about the portrait, that people are moved to tears,

the smiles on their faces, this feeling is why I love this job so much!


For my handcrafted animal portraits I use the highest quality materials that guarantee lightfastness and long durability, so that the works of art will last a lifetime and bring joy to their owners. name is Sabine Lackner, I am a passionate animal lover and international artist from Austria.


 My media are pastels, colored pencils, and charcoal / graphite.



I am also the proud mummy of my daughter and my horse Rubina.

I've loved drawing since I was a child and I've always loved animals! Drawing and painting classes at school were my favorites! Whenever I could get my hands on a piece of paper and a pencil, I drew animals.


I started drawing realistic animal portraits around 2007. In the beginning my horse Rubina was my model most of the time and I started to create lifelike and more realistic portraits and to learn from them.


Today I sell my animal portraits internationally and I am always happy when one of my animal drawings can decorate the owner's walls!
