Pencil Pet Portraits Testimonials
I'm stunned by those photos of the portrait, they are fantastic. You have such a talent! I think my husband will be thrilled when he sees it. We both miss Beano very much still even though it's 9 months since he died. He was such a character and you've captured that perfectly in the picture.

Ellen Whitter

Hi Melanie, It's fantastic I love it and I'm sure William will love it too, you really captured them both brilliant! I wasn't expecting it so soon. I'm over the moon with it, thank you again! Xx

Ellen Riddoch

Dear Melanie,

I picked up my pencil portrait today and I have to tell you it is ABSOLUTELY STUNNING!!!! You have captured her spirit beautifully and the kindness she had in her soul shone through those big brown eyes.

You are IMMENSELY talented portrait artist, I cannot thank you enough. I was quite emotional opening it but they were happy tears, it almost felt as though she was back with me, words cannot express my gratitude.

I am delighted that Teasel appears on your website too, HUGE SMILE, she had that endearing scruffy look about her. Through you we have the most BEAUTIFUL tribute of our very very special little lady. It will take pride of place in our lounge.
