“Angela was recommended to me by a friend, and I was worried that the portrait of  my pal would be any German Shepherd. How wrong I was. The portrait of my dog is exactly like him, his fur is him. and his expression is superb.I am over the moon with Angela’s portrait. I have photos of him, but his portrait is different but just like him. Thank you “

“The picture is terrific, absolutely captured his character, your depiction of light and shade has given the most exciting three dimensional quality to the work. ”

Sally Cunliffe, North Wales



“Just a quick email to say how delighted we both were with the painting. The first time we both saw it was on Xmas morning when Gaynor opened it and she was over the moon with it, in fact, it was hung on the wall in the lounge before the turkey made it into the oven ! Its almost impossible to put into words the joy that something like this brings to a family, photographs are nice but a painting is personal and will be looked at every day by everyone in the family.”

” I have commissioned Angela a number of times for my Parrots and Doggie portraits – most recently I have had series of my three dogs – individual head portraits – a rogue’s gallery. All beautifully drawn and coloured where Angela provided me with pencil sketches (works in themselves) for comments prior to completing in colour.

The pastels seem to work very well with this kind of work and the likeness is really very remarkable.

It’s a pleasure to have these pet portraits on my walls and I’m very pleased with Angela’s work.”

Rob Rodger, Cheshire




“We thought that the portrait was accurate and portrayed Dennis’s personality of a lovely, but naughty, dog.  We also appreciate the very careful way the painting was packaged for delivery and commented that it would make a fantastic delivered present for any animal lover”
Carol & Michael, Rempstone


“Thank you for all the hard work on the picture. We were really thrilled with it, and it certainly exceeded expectations. ‘Moel is’, will be hung above the fireplace in the place of honour in the library

“I am delighted with the cartoon image that Angela produced exactly to my brief for the Affordable Warmth Campaign in the Cheshire West and Chester Borough. Having searched the internet for images that I could use and not finding anything that matched our brief I contacted Angela who e-mailed me the image that evening – it was perfect for the campaign and has been distributed to 3000 properties & soon to go out to another 5000 properties in the Borough. Many thanks for matching the brief perfectly & producing it so quickly.”
