Ashes set in art and jewellery.


These two commissions were created with the customers choice of colours, styles and of course their loved ones ashes.


Both were a pleasure to work on and have given my customers a sense of closeness to their loved one.


If I can help heal that sense of loss by creating a piece of art or jewellery for a customer then my job is done.

"Felix"


This handsome pussycat was a special 50th birthday present for my sister Karen.

Trying to get the right pose took quite a few photos but we got there in the end with the help of family members.

This commission is the largest canvas I have ever painted. But I had such fun with mixing the acrylic colours and applying them with a pallet knife to the canvas.

By using metallic and pearlised acrylics gave the picture an extra dimension.

These two sunflower pictures were a joy to create as I had so many sunflowers in my garden to choose from. They are acrylics on canvas.

"Hattie"


This pet portrait commission of Hattie was for a special 50th birthday gift. I have now created both Mum (Hattie) and daughter (Doobie) in pastels and they were both adorable to work with.

Image description

"Riley"


This was a Christmas gift certificate commission. Riley, a cutie pie, was a pleasure to create in pastels and he had lovely colourings throughout his fur which were complimented by my mottled backgound.


He now has pride of place in his owners home.

"Fraser"

 

I have known this little man for over 15 years and he belongs to my closest friends. So when I decided to do a pet portrait for them as a surprise for Christmas I couldn't believe how nervous I was......I think it is because he has not been very well and I wanted it to be perfect for them.

 

I am pleased to say they were blown away with their special gift of Fraser and it was a very emotional moment.

Image description

"Sophie"

 

This beautiful dalmatian was a commission from a client who I have had the pleasure of working with before for her own dog. She wanted me to capture the beauty of Sophie for her owner as a Christmas present. I understand she was over the moon with her pet portrait.

Image description

"Doobie"


This gorgeous little puppy called "Doobie" was a very special Christmas present commission for some friends. I had the pleasure of taking the photographs myself allowing me to focus on capturing this perfect pose. She was a dream to work with and I had great fun creating this picture in pastels. She was presented framed to her owners.

Image description

"Arthur"



Well this cheeky chappie "Arthur" was just adorable to draw in charcoals. This picture was taken by his owner who captured this before he went for his haircut. He was presented framed to his owner.

Image description

"Rolo"

 

This little cutie pie was a special commission for a special birthday......what a great present to receive.

It was a pleasure to meet Rolo when I photographed him to get a closer look at the detailing in his eyes. He was a bundle of energy and a joy to draw.

"Sophie"


Beautiful "Sophie" is owned by my niece and was a pleasure to draw in charcoals. She was presented framed to her owners.

These two canvasses were for a client who wanted me to recreate her pictures in a style that fitted in with her existing artwork. I had the pleasure of personally delivering them and hanging them for her in her dining room and front room. 


Image description

"Carley"


I was asked to create this gorgeous pastel pet portrait of "Carley", as small as I could, as it was being send abroad for a special birthday present. I am pleased it still enabled me to bring out the character of Carley and I delivered it to my client with all the packaging they needed for a safe delivery abroad. 

Image description

"Honey" 

 

I had great pleasure creating this beautiful picture of "Honey" for my parents. It was my first commission piece, which I am very proud of, in pastels. She was presented framed to her owners.

 

Image description

"Kanu"


When i was asked to do a commission pastel picture of Kanu, i was a little nervous as the photos were not brilliant when enlarged. But together, with his owner, we managed to capture the character and spirit of this gorgeous dog who sadly is no longer with us. Very fitting that he will be collected from the framers and delivered to his owner around the 4th anniversary of his passing. 

Image description

"Jasper"

 

I was delighted to do this pastel drawing of a very handsome "Jasper" as a surprise present for my cousins wedding anniversary. Great choice of picture, by her husband, as it really shows off his character and gorgeous smile.

 

Image description

"Sophie"


I was honoured to be asked to create a pet portrait of "Sophie" for my clients who sadly lost this beautiful member of their family a few months ago. I liaised with them throughout to ensure everything was perfect including the natural oak frame, which they specifically requested. This pastel drawing lets her beauty and character shine through so that the family can remember their beloved pet for many more years to come.

It was my pleasure to create two acrylic canvasses for a special 70th birthday present.....they will be displayed in the owners home in Spain, which is where the original photographs were taken.

I was asked to do a very, very special commission for a client whose daughter is expecting their beautiful baby, Ava, in November. So using her daughter's baby scan I produced two pieces of art....one in graphite pencils and the other on canvas. My client was so pleased with them she ended up buying both, one for her daughter and the other for herself. What an amazing commission to be asked to do.

Image description

it was lovely to be asked to create one of my fabric notice boards for a client, as i haven't done one for a while. The client chose the colour scheme and she was delighted with my creation.

"Toby"


After my husband took a shine to this very friendly dog on our holiday to Centre Parcs earlier this year I was so pleased when they asked me to do a pet portrait for them. My husband loved the portrait so much the owners agreed he could have a giclee print of him, which is now hanging on our wall.

Image description

"Noris"


This was a special gift for an amazing friend of mine. She introduced me to a species I had never heard of, Loris, what a cute animal they are!

"Tuppence & Treacle"


Well these two are very special to me, as they are my own cats. I have used a new paper, pastelmat, and used pastels and pastel pencils to create these two wonderful pictures. Both cats have such beautiful colours in their fur and their eyes are amazing too.


So pleased I have finished them and they will look beautiful in our home.

These two gorgeous shih tzus were a very special gift for a clients friend. I have met them in person and they are such characters, so it was nice to be able to bring this out in their portrait.

"Daisy & Mollie"

 

These two cutie springer spaniels, "Daisy & Mollie", are owned and adored by my lovely friend and this is her favourite picture so I couldn't resist drawing them in pastel for her. They were presented framed to their owner.
