About the Commission of Siyouni

Horse Pencil Pet Portraits Reference Photo

I have been commissioned to draw a number of portraits by Lady Carol Bamford, my husband has also created an oil painting of her two dogs Dora and Dolly too. I was thrilled when Emma, Lady Bamford secretary called and asked if I could create a portrait on fairly short notice. Luckily I was able to as it was for the Aga Khan's birthday in December 2017.

The portrait was to be of his stud stallion Siyouni and I was given a number of photos, the one on the left being the most suitable for a head study. The portrait was a 12 x 12 pencil drawing and was sent off to Lady Bamford unframed as she has a framer she always commissions for all of her artwork.

I really hope that the Aga Khan loved the drawing. Its amazing to think my portrait with my name is displayed somewhere in his beautiful home !
