Life through Gilly Gobinet's eyes

In her paintings Gilly Gobinet she has recently swapped the turquoise hues of the Antiguan coast for the bucolic beauty of the French countryside. And she says the European sojourn lent fresh inspiration to her work.

A significant portion of Gilly’s work is devoted to her acclaimed ‘pet portraits’. For every beloved canine and feline immortalised on canvas, animal lover Gilly donates a percentage to the Dogs and Cats of Antigua charity. This charity was created to assist with the welfare of local dogs and cats through rescue, rehoming and veterinary assistance.

The charity has ‘rehomed’ thousands of stray dogs over the years, with more than 500 sent overseas last year alone.
