James was over the moon with the portrait of Jessie. Top quality and captured her features beautifully. Brilliant service, taking onboard my preferences every step of the way. Thank you! It's now pride of place on top of our piano.

Chicken- The adorable Bedlington Terrier (12 x 16")


Chicken and her owner Ruth

"I recently commissioned a portrait of my beautiful Beddlington terrier ‘Chicken’. The whole process was really simple, I just emailed a few photos of Chicken and the rest was left to Shaun to create! I received regular updates as the portrait came to life and I was amazed by how quickly Shaun was able to complete the finished piece. I’m absolutely thrilled with the portrait, it captures not just Chicken's look, but also the essence of his personality through his expression and eyes. It's a piece of art that my family will treasure forever."

"Just picked up Maisie's portrait today and I have just unwrapped it to have a look before wrapping it for my mum's Christmas. I would just like to say thank you from the bottom of my heart. It was very emotional to see her face once again, you captured her perfectly. I was so pleased with the frame and presentation in general so THANK YOU once again for creating something so beautiful for our family. Your work is stunning and I will have no trouble distributing your cards to everyone I know!"
