Keep up to date with what’s on our easel - On The Easel.

So its often best to make all of the arrangements with us using our Gift Voucher service. Read more about our Pet Portraits Gift Vouchers.

testimonials.....Hello Melanie and Nicholas!!!
It would be impossible to convey to you my complete happiness, awe and gratitude for the truly magnificent painting my husband, Kevin, gave me for my 50th birthday. It not only captures my beloved dachshunds perfectly, but our home as well. Now I know that my dogs will live forever and this time in my life has been captured so beautifully. It's SO beautiful!! I am truly in awe of your talent, Nicholas, and so incredibly grateful to you for doing this work of art for me. I still can't believe it's mine and was made for me. It will be an heirloom for our children as it portrays our home and precious pets so perfectly. Check out the picture showing me and my family on Christmas Eve, my birthday, when I opened this amazing gift.
