Client Feedback


"I absolutely love the portraits Rachel did of my beloved pets. I could not have asked for anything better. She captured their beauty perfectly. Her artwork is exceptional.


I also commissioned her for the black and normal jaguar. The composition she put together was exactly what I was looking for. I proudly hang all 3 of her commissioned artworks on my walls. Everyone that comes to my home comments how beautiful the paintings are. I have another pup who I will have her paint but I first have to find a way to keep her still long enough to take a good photo. When she does, Rachel will be commissioned again for her portrait. Thanks Rachel for all your work. It has and will continue to bring a smile to my face."

"The painting was here waiting for me on Monday when I got back and I've dropped it to the framers. It is brilliant thank you so much, I still can't believe I've got it and how great it looks. The guy at the framers said it's the best pet portrait he's seen - I sent him to look at your website! "

Pebbles, Shadow & Honey

Rachel that's just amazing, you have my babies down to a tee even the way Honey cocks her head to one side, Shadow has that lovely coy expression and Pebbles that cheeky look. To say we are both pleased is an understatement. we are ecstatic. You are brilliant and we are so proud to be hanging one of your masterpieces (and that's just what they are masterpieces) on our wall, thank you hardly seems enough, I am so pleased I could cry. I am just blown away by the painting... just blown away.

It brings so much joy to my heart to see her. It is such an amazing job. I look forward to framing it and having her back with me in my study."

"Scottish Wildcat Madonna has arrived in it’s new home. WOW! I’m blown away by the detail in this magnificent painting. I love it! I’m very proud of this piece of art. Thank you for helping the Scottish Wildcat cause with this wonderful work. It’s a cause near and dear to my heart.

I can’t wait to get it framed and hung."

Boon Lott's Elephant Sanctuary

"Just a quick note to say I received the Elephants painting today. It really has surpassed all expectation, and we all agreed that you've managed to perfectly capture the magic of BLES, the elephant sanctuary we visited (which given my rather vague instructions for the painting is some achievement). The picture has vividly brought back the feeling of awe and privilege we felt during our first morning at the sanctuary as we sat watching the elephants enter and play in the water just a few meters in front us, giving us the perfect memento. Once again, many thanks."


- Chris Penn, UK


"OMG! Rachel, that is incredible. You (and your family) are SO talented. The detail and accuracy is amazing, down to his very last whisker. It's astounding! Words fail me!"....


"Bagheera's painting arrived safely today. It really is superb - my husband was taken aback when he saw it. I just adore the eyes, like perfect blue glass marbles. Can't wait to get it framed. Thank you so much."


- Yasmin Smith, UK


"Thank you, that looks awesome! Merlin is so life-like and just as I remember him. The detail on the face looks spot on and I love what you've done with the background. I'm 100% happy with the painting, couldn't have imagined it better! I really appreciate the care you've gone to with this painting and I'm very glad I found you to do it! Obviously being a gift the sentimental value is also huge and I know it's going to mean a lot to my brother and his partner so thanks again for doing such a great job! "

Many thanks and good luck in your future work."

- Claire Guyer, UK

- Bobby Fishel, UK

Princess CoCo Chanel

Oh my goodness! You just made my day! Princess CoCo is not doing well and I fear her time is coming soon. This is why I wanted this portrait. You brought happy tears to my eyes.


- Barbara Escontrias, USA


We received the painting yesterday, it looks even more beautiful in person! We are very happy with your painting of Molly :) We can't wait to get it framed and hung on the wall. 


I wouldn't trust most people to paint a portrait of my dog. Your ability to capture an animal's likeness is exceptional. You managed to capture more than just Molly's likeness. You've captured her spirit and personality. 


Thank you for taking the time to help us choose just the right picture. And thank you for creating something that will be far more meaningful to us than a photograph. We definitely made the right choice when we decided that you would be the artist to paint Molly's portrait.
