"My husband and I absolutely adore the portrait Suzanne has put together of our Bowie! She truly captured his personality and likeness, it looks just like him! Suzanne was amazing to work with. She takes the time to get to know your pet through you to ensure she gets everything just right! I would recommend her to anyone looking for a keepsake of their furry family member." - Cassandra Byers
I digitally paint realistic portraits using a Wacom tablet and stylus, in concert with software that offers tools to simulate traditional watercolour and coloured pencil, along with others to create the finer details.
How does it work?
Clients provide me with photographs as reference and a brief written description that will give me insight into their loved one's character. I ask them to indicate the photo that reveals their preferred pose, with other photos allowing for clarification in areas of shadow, as well as further insight.
