Below are just a few of the lovely letters I have received from my Clients.
Words can't describe how pleased Debbie and I are with the oil portrait of our Vizsla dog, Mita. You have captured her likeness and, more importantly, her spirit absolutely perfectly. Her picture will hang in a prominent area of our living room so we (and Mita) can enjoy it.
I will be sure to recommend your talents to our pet-owning friends.
The portrait and our photographs arrived today in perfect condition due in no small part to your skilful packaging.
Not only were we totally pleased with the portrait, but your price was also extremely reasonable.
Thanks again very much!
Charles and Debbie ...... San Antonio Texas
Re - the portrait you did for me, of my Blue Burmese "Baggi" for my husband's birthday, well today is the day.
He opened the portrait and was delighted with it. He thought it was lov'ly.
The portrait will not only be enjoyed by husband but myself as well, you have done an excellent job and it will bring us both pleasure when we look at it in the years to come.
Jennifer ....... Bury, Lancashire
Thank you for completing the painting of Lucy, our Springer spaniel which I received on Tuesday. I think it's wonderful and I am sure my partner will too. You have certainly been able to capture Lucy's character in the painting. I can hardly wait until Christmas to give it to him, and I am arranging to have it framed this weekend.
Please find enclosed a cheque for £ ........ which is the balance owing for the painting and once again thank you so much for your lovely work.
Miss Alison.......... Bristol
Sparky's picture is wonderful, thank you so much. Thanks again.
Arthur ...... Near Abingdon, Oxfordshire
Thank you so much for the picture of Oliver and Emma. I can not tell you how thrilled Louise was with it. She said you captured Emma's facial expression perfectly. Louise said she phoned you so I guess you know anyway. I am just waiting for a good picture of my three and I shall have an oil done of them. Louise also said she is thinking of having a head study done of Rupert, she thought it was that good. Thanks again
Barry Br............... Chilwell, Nottinghamshire
Many thanks for the beautiful painting of 'Tom' which you have so splendidly created. I didn't know what to expect when I opened the parcel and was I have to say, truly impressed.
I know my parents will be overjoyed with it and will take great pleasure in hanging it in their home back on Guernsey.
Again thank you for your prompt and professional approach.
N .................... Holmeschapel
Thankyou again for the lovely portrait of Kizzy. Me and my partner are overwhelmed with it. She meant so much to us and when we lost her in Feb 2001 our lives were empty.
The portrait hangs on our lounge in full view and gives us great pleasure every day, our friends and family too.
Once again, thankyou for giving us a little of her back, we shall treasure it always.
Carol & Michael ......... Beeston, Nottinghamshire
Just a short note to let you know that I gave the painting to my husband for his birthday yesterday, he was amazed and like myself he thought it was incredible.
Now that it is up on the wall it looks lovely, and whereas before we may have put him to the back of our mind we now have a constant reminder of him, which is as it should be.
G. M. ........ Pevensey, East Sussex
The portrait of 'Ace' you painted for us arrived today. I would like to say how delighted I am with it. I couldn't wait till Christmas to show my wife the painting and she is also over the moon with the portrait.
Glenn ......... Enfield, Middlesex
Thank you very much for your painting of Ben. You've managed to capture his look perfectly. I was so impressed by it I gave my partner his birthday present two weeks early as I wanted to tell everyone about your painting
Janet ........ Four Oaks, Sutton Coldfield
Thank you for the lovely painting. My husband was thrilled to receive such a wonderful birthday present. Many thanks for getting it here on time. The painting is already receiving lots of admiring comments from friends and family and I shall certainly pass on your details to anyone wanting an animal portrait.
Kevin & Sharron ......... East Yorkshire
I am very pleased with the finished article and I would be happy to recommend your work to anyone in the future.
Paul C.......Llanharan, Mid Glamorgan, Wales
The painting arrived safely this morning and I was really shocked that it turned up so quickly. I didn't expect to see it until about April. I was really pleased with the portrait of "Jack". You really captured his personality, as I knew you would.
I haven't yet shown the portrait to Graham because I thought it would be a nice Valentine gift. However, I'm sure he will love it. My work colleague's thought it was superb and your details have been passed on.
Thank you ever so much, for once again supplying such a lovely portrait.
Liza ...... Newbridge, Gwent, Wales
Thank you for the painting which I have received. My wife is absolutely delighted with it.
R. G.......... Preston, Lancashire
And when the stream
Which overflowed the soul was passed away,
A consciousness remained that it had left
Deposited upon the silent shore
Of memory images and precious thoughts
That shall not die, and cannot be destroyed.

I just need a CLEAR photo of your pet dogs, cats, ponies, horses, birds or any other pet animals, persons or places, to create a unique and special gift.
If you do not have any clear, close up photos of your pet, take some NOW.
If your pet has sadly died and it is too late to take any clear photos I will willingly look at your photo and let you know if it is clear enough. I love my pet portrait work, but one of the saddest aspects is where an old pet has died and the owner has no clear photo to remember their friend by, or, indeed, to create a pet portrait memorial to their lost one. So take those pictures now, even if you do not yet decide on a painting of your pet.
The happiest aspect of my work is when my client has received their pet portrait and telephone or write to let me know how delighted they are in spite of the tears over their lost friend. I have so many lovely letters telling me how the portrait of their pet is now taking pride of place in their home, and how they feel their pet's spirit is still with them whenever they gaze at the painting. So do not hesitate. Order your pet portrait painting today. You will be so glad you did.
Children or any person or pet can be painted into the scene, even if they were not in that particular photo. Many things are possible. If you have a special request, just ask. If it is possible it can be done.
So, if you have no CLEAR photos, get clicking and send your favourite photo to me for that dog painting, cat painting, animal painting, or landscape painting. You will be delighted with the result.
Pet dogs, cats, animals or any child or adult can be painted into the scene, even if they were not in that particular photo. Many things are possible. If you have a special request, just ask. If it is possible it can be done.
We should all value our historical houses be they palaces, farmhouses or cottages, they are our links to our past, but sadly, many are being allowed to deteriorate beyond any repair. It would be a poorer world with no physical reminders of our ancestors presence. Whenever, I get the opportunity I am out painting and capturing little corners of this England onto canvas or watercolour paper.
We should have much tougher laws against the pollution of our rivers and fields, and stricter laws to protect pressured animals and green spaces.
Imagine a world with only one creature, the human being. What a dreadful place that would be. We must all do our best to alleviate some of the harm man has done to this world and its animal inhabitants. One way is to enforce planning controls for new human dwellings, office blocks and factories that are sympathetic to the natural environment.
The welfare of this Earth's wild creatures is something I feel very passionately about. We have done so much harm to these fellow residents of our planet, who, of course, have as much right to exist as humanity. Wild animals, including the smallest insect have no less right to live out their natural lifespan as ourselves.
We should not attempt to turn all their wild habitats into pretty parks for just our enjoyment. Nature is wild and beautiful in its wildness. Wild animals need to be wild and free and people can find enjoyment in this too.
We cannot turn this, still beautiful, Earth into a controlled, barren environment for the convenience of just one of this world's creatures, ourselves. We can help these animals in many ways, such as not mowing every piece of wild meadow near our towns. No voles, hawks or butterflies can exist on a lawn. These animals need the shelter of tall grasses to hide in and to feed from. Where there are no hiding places, there are no wild creatures. Where the grass is mown no wild flowers can flourish. However, with a little goodwill on our part it is amazing how quickly Mother Nature heals her wounds.
Remember the warm days of summer as, during the cold days of winter, you gaze at your painting of your sunny garden and home.
If you want a really unusual and special gift for a pet or animal lover for Christmas, Birthdays, Thanksgiving, Easter, Anniversaries, Retirements, Presentations or any other celebration, a portrait of a beloved pet is always a unique and very welcome gift. Whether it is a dog painting, cat painting, horse painting, wild animal painting, bird painting, child or adult human painting or a painting of someone's home and garden, it will bring delight and surprise to the recipient.
