Commissions are a relatively new venture for me and it is immensely rewarding when someone has taken the time to send me their thoughts. I have started a page which I will dedicate to such feedback. 

It began with chicken..... or four to be precise.



The Early Bird

“ I first saw Sarah’s paintings whilst staying  at The Red Lion, Newborough (overnight relief during  the Hadrians Wall long distance walk) and was really captured by the way she portrays the character of her subjects. There’s something about their facial expression which really holds you.  Our family are really keen on anything to do with chickens and so the choice of subject was confirmed.  Sarah took our brief and  created a stunning triptych which will take pride of place in the our kitchen. If you are looking to commission a painting, perhaps for example, of a much loved pet, I would thoroughly recommend approaching Sarah. She has real talent”

Hello Sarah,

Thank you for the wonderful painting of Tara, our recently passed family
member. My wife shed a tear when the painting was given pride of place in our
living room.

You have captured her very essence with your extraordinary skill and

Dear Sarah,
I would like to take this opportunity to thankyou and try to express my complete happiness and gratitude for these truly beautiful paintings. They capture the very essence of my beloved parsons Jack Russells, captured in time forever perfectly. I am in awe and can't stop looking at them, they look amazing in my lounge. So precious I will treasure them always.
Thank you!

“Sarah is special. We commissioned her to paint a family pet, Riley.  She has an uncanny ability to really get inside the character of her subject.  Just look at the eyes, they tell you everything. Her artistry is alive”.  

Andrew Maxwell and family.


Hello Sarah Just a note to say that my sister was delighted with the portrait of Belle. Thank you so much for both the very good portrait and the ease with which it was commissioned. Any questions I had were answered quickly and you kept me well informed of progress
