This beautiful girl is Ruby and her portrait was commissioned as a first wedding anniversary gift (the traditional 1 year anniversary gift being paper).

There is still time to commission a pet portrait for Mother’s Day, just pop into our Sidmouth shop, email or give us a call. All prices can be found on the ‘Pet Portraits’ section of the website.

While most of our clients are based in East Devon, we also regularly post commissioned portraits to customers who live further afield. Please take a look at the Pet Portrait page for prices and details on how to commission a portrait of your dog, cat, horse or any other animal.

We weren’t able to post any of Lorraine’s pet portrait commissions in the run up to Christmas for fear of ruining someone’s surprise gift but now that we’re free to do so here are a couple of little cuties, Badger and Molly…

Bruce recently completed a photography commission for the Honiton based sponge manufacturer Ramer. The brief included lifestyle and product photography for their new website, social media and literature.

As well as pet portraits, I am always happy to accept commissions for child portraiture. Here is a family portrait I recently completed in pastels for a customer who discovered our shop while holidaying in Sidmouth.

We have moved into our new shop and are up and running! It’s just next door to our old shop so pop in and see us – we have new paintings, prints, photographs and greetings cards of Sidmouth, as well as beautiful decor gifts and fused glass items, hand made in the South West.

Lorraine also accepts commissions to paint portraits of people’s houses like this watercolour painting she completed recently of a beautiful home in Sidmouth.

Portrait of Eve

Here’s a black and white portrait of Eve from a recent shoot Bruce was commissioned to photograph. Not only does black and white photography perfectly capture Eve’s beautiful eyes, it also gives the portrait an artistic, timeless feel. Bruce shoots portraits on location and is happy to accept commissions.  

Most of the portrait commissions I receive are for works in pastel  but here is an oil painting commission completed over the summer. This is Dexter, the Sprockerpoo.
