We were delighted when Sarah agreed to paint an image for The Blues & Royals Association – the painting has exceeded our expectations. From the image we produced our annual Christmas cards which were sold to our members and the public to raise much needed funds for The Blues and Royals Association Welfare Fund. This fund is used to assist our veterans and their families when they have fallen upon hard times.

Made contact with Sarah to see if it was possible to do a painting of our puppy for my partner for a Christmas present …. The whole process was smooth and the end result was a painting on canvas that looked like a real photo … absolutely stunning result with a black wooden frame that complimented this artwork, can’t recommend highly enough, absolutely fantastic and my partner even shed a tear on Christmas Day when she opened it….thanks again Sarah

Sarah did an amazing acrylic on canvas board painting of our dog Chip which was also beautifully mounted. It was a surprise from my Mum. The picture speaks for itself I think!


I was looking for a focal piece of artwork for my new kitchen extension. Sarah suggested a triptych would work well in the space. We chose 3 photos of bailey and Sarah created her magic with them. We were overwhelmed with the accuracy and how she captured his cheeky personality.

Sarah offered a Professional service from the initial meeting to the enjoyable handing over. I would highly recommend and will be using her again for our other Boston pup when he is fully grown.

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.

Sarah has produced an amazing piece of art that captures Indie our Cockapoo beautifully. The attention to detail is incredible, Sarah listened to our ideas, colours of our choice and she cleverly included a background of our favourite magnolia tree in the garden. She not only has incredible talent she is totally reliable,open and communicative and someone we would trust to paint our precious pet. Thank you.

Just wanted to show my fabulous cushion. Originally painted on canvas and turned into cushions , cards and anything you want. She also paints pet portraits so if you would like one of your favoured pets she’s you woman.

Just received my cards and beautiful cushions, I love them thanks, you are very talented ! Xx

I had followed Sarah on Facebook for a while after seeing her pictures through friends having commissions. She has done some great work. When I saw her last slot available before Christmas I messaged her and managed to secure it. I commissioned a picture of our dog Cooper for my partner and daughter. Sarah sent pictures of progress and we couldn’t have been more pleased with our finished picture. Sarah kept me up to date and arranged delivery and even gift wrapped the picture too. I can highly recommend her super talents x

Thanks so much Sarah Perkins!
We’ve managed to bring back the lovely memories of Gypsy.
You’ve made her look beautiful xx

- Pete Robertson (Heage, Derbyshire)


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.

Sarah’s work ‘Brown Long-eared Bat’ helped raise a significant amount for our conservation charity. Aside from these donations, having our charity mentioned on Sarah’s website & social media will help us continue to reach a wider audience than we would be able to do ourselves. We are a totally voluntary organisation with no paid staff and Sarah’s generosity is really helping us to continue to conserve the bats of Derbyshire.

- Steve Roe (Vice Chair – Derbyshire Bat Group)


I commissioned Sarah to paint our much loved golden retrievers as a surprise for my husband’s birthday. He was truly overwhelmed by the quality and  professionalism of the painting. Sarah captured the subtleties between the two dogs, from their eye colouring to different strokes of fur. Throughout the whole process kept in touch with me and provided me with her expert opinion on the best size, shape and background for the painting as well as updates on the progression of the painting. Thank you 😊 a truly wonderful painting that will be treasured in our home.

- Julie Fazackerley (Borrowash,Derby)


Highly recommend Sarah, love my bug print! Looking forward to my dog commission.

- Lou Curzon (Codnor)

I am thrilled with the painting Sarah, it's a 1000 times better than I hoped and is priceless, perfect, Henry! He is behind the glass in a frame and my boy I miss every minute of every day. I can't thank you enough which is silly because iv paid for it, but you are very very talented. It has blown me away.

Love Dave x


Sarah has painted us a wonderful picture of our dog Lily, still not found the very right spot for it yet at home due to decorating but we just love it! Sarah took the time to contact us about what kind of style/colour we wanted and we talked about traits we liked in Lily but ultimately we let her have “artistic licence” and we are not disappointed.

- Poppy Hague (Dorset)

Thank you so much Sarah Perkins for my UK guest, he arrived yesterday & I love it, so talented.

- Jane Adams (Australia)

Excellent range of products - Sarah's products are very decorative and very durable and make lovely presents.

- Sara Porter (Ockbrook)

I purchased 3 of the large beautiful bee design cushions from Sarah, they are absolutely gorgeous and I am looking forward to purchasing her latest owl design which looks wonderful. I adore being able to watch her work transform from the ideas she has in sketch form to the completed piece art. Check out her Instagram and Facebook page for updates, you will not be disappointed! *****

Just seen the cushion I had sent to my Mum for Mother’s Day! Looks fabulous and she is very pleased with it, the fabric is just lush. Thank you
