I thought it would be nice to show you what some of my customers have had to say. I feel so privileged to be the one who is asked to draw your beloved pets, in what is a saturated market. It is really lovely to receive feedback because the minute I send your portrait to you I am thinking about how well it will be received. Opening your portrait can be an emotional experience, as you will read below. Sometimes the moment is met with sadness and tears. However, this means that I have succeeded in capturing your pet and in so doing created something you will be able to treasure forever. I consider myself lucky to have been given a talent which enables me to do this for you.

"I would just like to thank you for such a wonderful opportunity to provide a unique gift for my loved one-of another loved one: Sid (our family pet of 11 years). My partner was so surprised by the wonderful drawing, she first thought it was some kind of photo! The pencil detail is purely perfect! Sid now adorns the wall, in all his splendour (and character), so beautifully captured by you. Thank you Justine".

"This is so raw. Macey-Lou left is at the beginning of Autumn 2017 well before her time. She was an absolute character. This was most definitely a special commission and a real surprise to receive on Christmas day. I don't thinkn we will ever be able to look at this commission without happy heartache... The reason for this is that Justine has encapsulated the very spirit and soul of her. We cannot express how much every hair, every outline, every shadow, the expression in her eyes is so accurate. What a talent! 

I don't know what else to say other than thank you."

"Thank you so so much. It is so beautiful. It looks so realistic that at first glance I thought it was a photo! I miss my bunny so much, and to have such a stunning beautiful painting of him just warms my heart"

And here is a little video showing myself at work...

I am sure you would like to have a look at a gallery showing my work now. I have been drawing in the mediums of charcoal, watercolour and coloured pencils to date (I hope to be adding pastel to the range eventually). I have organised my portraits into the three categories so please click on the buttons below which will take you to the gallery for each.
