Pet portraits: past commissions.
"What can I say about this amazing work of art - hound's essence has been captured on canvas - bird poo and all!"
Denise Lichfield, Grrl & Dog.
This gallery features a collection of my previous pet painting commissions, click on the images and scroll through on the arrows to see more.
It's a pain-free process; all I need is a nice clear photo of your furry, feathery (or scaley!) chum and that's it...easy! To make your artwork extra special I offer you my completely unique hand embroidered portrait service. Working with you, I combine elements that are special to you or the recipient with my own embellishments and designs, making these works truly bespoke.
