"Hi Kate, Sorry I meant to post a testimonial a while ago. My family & I had all been admiring the watercolours you did of my sisters dog "sam" and also of my mums dog "phoebe" & they were all asking who the artist was. They are very special & I am sorry that you no longer accept commissions. Anyway just to say that they are excellent portraits of much loved pets who have both sadly now passed on & we appreciate the talent you have." - Joy

Note from Kate - I am now accepting commissions, as from June 2018.

"I can't thank you enough Kate for the fantastic portrait you have painted of my grandaughter Maddie and her pony Sam. It is amazing ! I wanted a portrait that maddie can keep forever to not only remind her of her first pony but also that her old grandmother who commissioned it for her for her Christmas present for 2013.
I'm now thinking of having my cat Basil immortalised !!! Thank you so much Kate xxx" - Margaret

"Just a thank you for the fabulous portrait of Shadow, now sitting proudly on my lounge wall. Having only recently lost him it really is as if you have given him back to us. The likeness is extraordinary - you have captured him completely, floppy paws and all. Thank you so so much." - Karen

"Kate was given the task of doing a portrait of Tabitha - a black cat with a white bib. As usual, Tabitha was difficult to photograph and although I gave several shots to Kate, she kindly agreed to come round and take some herself. Between us, we just managed to have enough information for Kate to work with and the end result was just brilliant - a great portrait of Tabitha, complete with tongue out too! Thanks Kate!" - Roger
