I knew from the start that BoB’s portrait was going to be a challenge – at A2 size, there was scope for a huge amount of detail that had to be just right. I love Beagles and wanted BoB to look his best. Unfortunately, after four days, having completed just over half of the work, his portrait was destroyed when my camera fell off its tripod whilst I was taking a work-in-progress photo – I was absolutely horrified. I had no choice but to start again, and finally produced a portrait that I’m proud of.

Angie recently completed a portrait of my Beagle. Her work is incredible and she is a wonderful artist to work with. Her compassion and dedication to each work of art are unequivocal. The detail, expression & coloring she reproduces in her portraits are amazing. It is also astonishing how she is able to instill each animal’s personality into its portrait. Angie was able to capture the absolute essence of my dog. “BoB” and portray it exquisitely on paper. Anyone who sees BoB’s portrait will feel they immediately “know” him. I cannot thank Angie enough for giving me such a special “living” memory of BoB!
