“If you are looking for a true likeness of your cat in a beautifully drawn portrait, then I would highly recommend Kate at Purely Pet Portraits.
I wanted a present for my partner of her beloved cat who had died, leaving a big gap in the home. I was concerned whether any artist would be able to capture the look, the detail and especially the character of Porky.
Having spoken with Kate, I sent her several photographs and she came back with three she thought suitable. She then sent me these with examples of how the charcoal drawing would look together with its grey background.
Throughout the process, Kate kept in touch. My early concerns about whether Porky’s unique character would survive soon vanished. Kate brilliantly captured a true likeness of Porky, especially her slightly ‘grumpy’…don’t mess with me look.
The present of Porky’s portrait was a triumph. It is much admired and now looks down proudly on to the room where she enjoyed many happy times.”
"Kate that is beautiful. Thank you so much for the portrait. We love that dog and you couldn't have done better"
"Contacted Kate before Christmas to arrange a charcoal pet portrait for a Christmas gift. Couldn't believe the detail of the finished product when it got delivered. Absolutely brilliant! A real eye for detail and a very professional service indeed.
