“Barbara skilfully captured the essence of our English Setter pup in 2011 – always looking innocent and endearing, yet mischievous! It is a fabulous portrait and a wonderful memory of those fun puppy days that go so fast!”

Lenley B, Seaforth, Sydney 2018

“This comical portrait was created purely from viewing a photo … It is so lifelike that visitors have commented it is difficult to tell the photo from the painting! This is what happens to a dog when a boy buys his first pair of Raybans!”

Lenley B, Seaforth, Sydney 2018

“Barbara did a wonderful portrait of my Whippet, Woody. The expression in his eyes is lifelike and done from only a couple of photos. A wonderful lasting portrait of my best mate. If you have a ‘best mate’ get one done as you won’t regret it!”

Kathy G, Hobart, Tasmania 2018

“I’m really impressed with the way Barbara has captured the very essence of my dog Billi. From the light in her eyes to the texture of her fur and the rueful expression on her face. A great job!”

Lynne B, Perth, Western Australia 2018

“It is with great pleasure to tell you of the surprise birthday painting Barbara did for my Father of our two staffies  –  Azzie and Dude.  He loved the painting so much he even moved his 65 year old wedding photo to give it pride of place.”

Jenny T, Hobart, Tasmania, 2018

“That’s looking fantastic! I sent the photo you sent me to the family and they think it absolutely just like Dumpy. We thank you so much for what you have done for us. I’m sure my brother will love what you have done”

Angie D, West Launceston Tasmania 2018

“Thanks for doing the portrait of Zoie for me. Very impressive and I love it. Very talented!”.

Amanda D, Newcastle, October 2018

“Thanks Barbara for the fabulous portraits of my galahs, Lily and Byron. You captured their personalities perfectly, and I can’t help but smile every time I look at the paintings. Thank you for also taking the time to help choose background colours and style of artwork, which blend perfectly into the style of décor I have in my home”.
