Testimonials

We commissioned Sarah to do a painting of our son's British Bulldog as a surprise birthday present. The result was stunning. Sarah was extremely helpful throughout the whole process advising on background colours and frame. We would have no hesitation in using Sarah and her skills again or in recommending her to anyone else.

- M & M Jakeway (Derby)


Sarah was very professional and was very accommodating in my request. Being on lockdown wasn’t a problem. Communication and the updates Sarah provided were on point. She was recently on the local news and deserves it. Her work is an absolute credit. Best thing I ever did. My sister works for the NHS and the portrait Sarah did of my Sosters dog ‘Barney’ was just exquisite. It’s my way of being able to thank my sister for the work she did in the worst of the pandemic, seeing her face light up when I presented her with the gift voucher was priceless.

Our pets are precious and now my Sister will always have that part of him forever come what may. Thanks Sarah for everything you have done for me and my Sister.

- Sara Firth (Buckinghamshire)


Isabella describes her painting you did of Bertie as the best thing she has ever had, thank you. Such a great artist.

- Simon Smith (Yorkshire)
