fine art dog pet portraits by commission
Welcome to our dog portraits testimonials page. Nicholas and myself have received some amazing photos and messages of thanks from our clients over the years. We can't thank our clients enough for taking the time out of their busy schedules to not only write us beautiful emails of thanks, but to also take photos of their portraits too. We have included a few photos and testimonials below and we will be adding more over the coming weeks and months, so please check back regularly.
"Melanie and Nicholas - thank you, thank you, thank you!!! Simply put, it is just beautiful! And thank you for taking the photo with both of you in it! Kare, Alan and Spyder"
"Thank you so much!! This is AMAZING! They will be so thrilled :)) Jennifer"
Wanted to share this with you, we finally picked up Blue's portrait from the framer. The shot, I realize, isn't the best with glares and reflections. But I think the handsome lad is quite fond of his likeness. We have recently moved all of our dog portraits to a new spot in our family room, where we see them all the time. Love them so much.
Hope you are well. Take care.
"Dear Melanie and Nicholas,
My family and I couldn’t be more pleased with Boone’s portrait. You truly captured his personality and the warmth from his eyes and the essence of the Boone that we knew and loved for 12 years. We will cherish this forever. Nicholas, I am in awe of your talent and so grateful that you share it with the world in this way. You bring happiness to so many.
"Samantha was stunned, in awe, absolutely loves it. Took a photo and shared with the TriPawds group she is a member of immediately. I did the big reveal, had it covered with paper taped to the wall, stood her in front of it then removed the paper for maximum effect. It is PERFECT. Russell"
"Hi Melanie and Nicholas,

This is the dog portrait of Curly, read Tracey's wonderful email to us about the portrait below.
"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. Kris"
Dear Melanie, Nick and Lily,
It has taken me many weeks to be able to email you a proper 'thank you' for Curly's portrait. As you know, we received the portrait just two weeks after the day marking the first anniversary of Curly's passing and receiving the portrait was extremely emotional.
When I opened the package and saw Curly's face, so lovely and warm, I was immediately overcome with tears. I thank you so very much for creating a stunning portrait of Curly. My family will cherish this portrait for the rest of our lives. You've also created a portrait which everyone who knew Curly, from our extended family of friends to the women who runs the rescue organization in California (The Brittany Foundation), that brought Curly into our life, can appreciate and admire forever.
Thank you, again, for giving us a lovely portrait of our Curly.
Tracey and Family
"Thank you so much, the portrait is fantastic. The frame fits perfectly with our wooden wall and beams. Jane Barrie"
"My husband has been giving out your website address, since the painting is in his office everyone wants a portrait! Beverly"
"Sharon Eggers sent lovely emails during the process and when the portrait was complete. Read one of them below."
"Peter was delighted, you have captured Bruno perfectly, a memorable 60th birthday present! Best wishes Edith"
Dear Melanie and Nicholas,
I continue to proudly display my Tobi portrait to anyone who sets foot in my house. Everyone who has seen it is amazed at the incredible likeness to my precious girl. I always ‘bore’ them with the tale of how the portrait came into being and where it came from. Tobi proudly lords it over our family room where we spend most of our time. It is a beautifully light-filled and cheerful room, so she could not occupy a more fitting place in the house.
I thank you everyday for your care in recreating her for me.
"I wanted to let you know we received Romy today! Looks even better in person - we can't wait to get it framed. Caroline"
"It's great having portraits of both my old dogs in the dining room. They were such a part of my life and both are sadly missed. Julie"
"Today is Rob's 50th Birthday and he is absolutely delighted with the portrait of Sonny, it is like having him back again. Gill"
"Read Kim's email below and hear Kims mums reaction when she recieved the portrait of Samantha"
Dear Melanie and Nicholas,
The portrait arrived safe and sound. Scared my mom a bit when she saw the size of the wrapping, though. (lol). She was crying when she called. She said the size is perfect and that it is even more beautiful in person! I know I have said it before, but I will say it again, your artist gift has touched the hearts of so many...and now our family. Thank your for this wonderful painting and all the emails that have passed between us while it was being created.
