"We commissioned Carole to paint our two dogs. We couldn’t be more thrilled. She sent us regular updates from start to finish and we were excited to see the progress. They are a perfect replication and the detail is phenomenal. I would recommend Carole to everybody. Thank you so much, we have a treasured memory which will last forever"

Amazing portrait by Carole of my pug, Ralph, for my husbands 50th birthday present. We were all absolutely delighted with it. Very highly recommended.

I love it, it's really beautiful, I wouldn't change anything, it's simply stunning! Thank you so much, it captures Tiggy's likeness so well and takes pride of place on our living room wall, it's great to have such a beautiful original painting.

I can still see the look on Mums face when she opened her birthday present, Carole’s portrait of her beautiful Golden Retriever Autumn that we’d had commissioned. Stunning work!

I echo my brother James comments about Carole"s portrait of gorgeous Autumn. We can't thank her enough.

Old man of the Sea

16x12 inch canvas

I immediately fell in love with one of Carole's paintings after visiting her page and the "Old man of the Sea" now hangs proudly in my house. Her ability to add depth and mystery to her subject's eyes in her portraiture astounds me and I cannot recommend her work highly enough.

Over the last few years we have had several pieces commissioned with Carole. We have two amazing paintings from our wedding day and a beautifully done piece from a holiday where I celebrated my 30th birthday. It’s not easy to explain how much a commission means because they’re so personal, but they take pride of place in each room and Carole has an extraordinary ability to capture every detail. I’m sure the ones we have won’t be our last. Thank you, Carole.

Having a unique commissioned painting of our little Dachshund Obi has captured his unique personality on canvass forever. Carole is exceptionally talented at interpreting a still image of a dog but somehow managing to also capture their unique qualities. The detail in this painting is nothing short of phenomenal, even down to the hairs on his ear. Friends have commented that it's almost a photographic image. This will be one of many commissions we request and I look forward to seeing more of Carole's talent in interpreting our family and pets. Thank you so much for doing this it's a unique gift that's simply irreplaceable!

"The painting was completed in three weeks. The final result is absolutely amazing! Carole has the ability to capture a dog's personality. Rufus is a very gentle kind boy and this comes through. His eyes and fur are captured perfectly. Carole e mailed to show all the stages of the painting from initial sketches to the finished article . This process allowed us to discuss any slight changes and tweaks. Along with the finished painting Carole gave me a memory stick showing all the various stages in the project which is fascinating . I thought the price was extremely fair and the whole experience very straightforward and immensely enjoyable. I can't wait to get my Goldendoodle Ludo " done "!

Carole is a delightful person and was my present a success ? Well suffice to say my husband was in tears on Christmas morning. Result !
