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.

Here is one of my favourite dog portrait commissions from the summer. This is Chester, a Fox Terrier / Bischon Frise cross otherwise known as a Foxschon!

We have new paintings and prints of Sidmouth and the surrounding area to suit all budgets so come along to Libra Court and take a look!

This is Harvey, a beautiful Labradoodle I was commissioned to paint by three young children (and their dad) as a special birthday gift for their mum. Now is the time to commission a portrait for Mothers’ Day if you want to treat your mum!

Meet Humphrey, a Miniature Wire-Haired Dachshund, and quite a character. Humphrey’s portrait is the latest to leave the studio and, I have to say, I really enjoyed drawing him.
