Pet Portraits

I was thrilled to receive my perfect stunning portrait….it was exactly how I pictured it and Emily was a joy to work with – highly recommend!!! – Emma, Salisbury UK



pet portraitsWhile visiting our local vet with our dog Ajax I saw some of Emily’s work on their office walls and felt at that point I had found someone who could capture our own dogs unique character and temperament.  It was a big step for us having never commissioned a piece of art before. It became obvious as we talked with Emily the reason her paintings are the way they are is because of who she is.

The entire process was easy and extremely enjoyable and I would strongly encourage others to get their own special family member captured in time by Emily.  We are beyond thrilled with the result and all who have seen it have remarked on what an amazing picture of Ajax it is.

There is not a day that goes by that this painting doesn’t move me and I’m just glad that as Ajax draws inexorably toward the end of his life we will always have him with us through this painting.  Not sure how many artists can truly capture the soul of an individual but Emily certainly does. – Mark and Catherine Bishop, USA

We received the portrait of our dog Toto as a surprise Christmas present. It is such a good likeness and captures his adorable look perfectly. It has been much admired and hangs in pride of place in the hallway.  – AS, Southsea



pet portraitI loved Emily’s work when I first saw it at a summer fair, and I asked her to paint a portrait of our Bernese mountain dog Heidi for my husbands birthday.The whole process was very easy and nothing was too much trouble for Emily. The whole family love the painting, I think her unique contemporary style means having a poster size painting of your pet on the wall is really fun and different. – Jill, London UK



 

pet portraits

I first meet Emily when she was commissioned by the director of the Veterinary Practice I work in, to complete 5 pieces of work. I was amazed at her work  and promised myself I would get a portrait done of my beautiful black Labrador Boston. When we had to say good night to him, I knew it was the right time.

I knew Emily would capture his life and show us those beautiful sparking eyes and kicked out ears, that amazing character he had, which no photo can really do. I sent over so many photos that I thought I was being a pain, but Emily worked with me and narrowed my choices down but still giving me the options to decide, but when I found it too difficult she also guided me to the right one, helping me with the size, colour of the background and the different option within the picture.

When I saw the portrait for the first time it was such a incredible liking to my boy Boston that all the 10 years of memories of him were in one portrait. I think Emily is an amazing person who can achieve amazing portraits and because of her own desire for it to be perfect, no one would be disappointed with any of her work.  – Stella, Surrey UK



When I saw the finished portrait of Fred I absolutely loved it. Emily caught Fred’s face to a hair. From the look of his eyes to the faint cock of his head it was Fred, my handsome boy who I unexpectedly lost last summer.

Freddie 01smNow I have a most wonderful daily reminder of him.  I can’t praise Emily’s work highly enough. From her time spent helping me decided on the best photo to selecting background colours that best captured Fred’s colouring, the whole process was painless and professional. I highly recommend Emily to her future clients.  –  Jane, Cornwall UK.



I’ve now commissioned two portraits from Emily and she has absolutely thrilled me with the results both times. Your own pet is such an emotional subject to consider and Emily takes time to make sure you are absolutely happy with the drafts before going ahead with the original artwork.

As well as a personal portrait of my dog Buddy, I also commissioned Emily to come up with a logo for my new company Blackdog DNA.  Again Emily understood my needs and came up with the perfect design.  I would not hesitate to recommend her work. – Sarah, London UK.
