Commissions and Portraits
Capture precious memories of your treasured animals with a bespoke portrait. A portrait preserves the pride that you feel for your animal and can celebrate either your or your animal's milestone birthday or achievement or for just being a loyal friend. Give as a gift or as a treat for yourself. A portrait will take pride of place on your walls to be admired today and for many years to come. Great care, empathy and a close attention to detail will be used to create a lovely realisitic portait of your animal, from photographs. For more examples of my work please view my Gallery page as I like to capture the character of all the animals that I paint.
