Thank you for the wonderful portrait you did of Ollie. Every time I look at the portrait I get a rush of joy, it has continued to feed my soul. You are a talented artist with an unique skill of capturing not only the subject but also the energy of what you are painting. I highly recommend you to other people and am happy to be contacted.

Andrew painted my whippet, Agnes from a photo. He used water-colour and came up with a delicate use of colour and shading. It’s a truly beautiful work that speaks to her spirit and her grace. I couldn’t be happier with it.

Andrew painted a portrait of our cat Zoe who we lost recently. The painting is beautifully rendered and very moving.
