Tia & Mo

Really can't thank Susan enough for the beautiful surprise portrait she did for my husbands birthday of our late Doberman and present Doberman, they never met but she managed to create one portrait from two separate photos . So we have them together now in one picture .

Susan was so lovely  to deal with and kept me informed with regular updates, my husband was over the moon with it. I really can't recommend her work enough and can't wait to get it framed and on the wall.

Thank you Susan X


Recently for my birthday I was gifted a beautiful portrait of my dog Bella drawn by Susan! The detail and the quality is just amazing and I am stunned by how life like it is! What an talent to have! Thank you x

I offer many different commissions, but mainly pet portraiture. As I work from photographs you can easily E-mail me your images so I can take a look and discuss requirements. Although this is an easy process, the key to having a stunning portrait is having a good quality photo.

      * Photo's should be clear, in-focus with good detail, close up and not over exposed (too bright to see detail).

After I have received your photo or photos, I will get back to you to discuss style, size and background paper colour.

Once all this has been discussed and agreed, I will need a 25% booking fee (refundable up to four weeks before start date), to confirm your booking in my diary with the balance being paid on completion. I am also happy to accept payment by installments.

Commissions - How too!


I use very high quality materials that are archival and will not fade over time to ensure your new artwork can be enjoyed for many years to come.
