“I've admired Kay's graphite work for some time, so when the time was right I made contact to ask about the process and discuss what I had in mind for a very special portrait of my dog in a lifetime. Kay was so easy to work with and we batted ideas and photos back and worth for a number of weeks, maybe even months. With literally thousands of photos to go through to find the very essence of what I wanted Kay to capture was probably the hardest part. We settled on three images with a few others as potential options, after seeking permission from two of the photographers we were off. The composition of the piece came a close second because again it was trying to capture the moment, the dog behind the image but after a few trials we agreed on what the final composition would be. Kay kept me involved throughout the process although she probably wished she hadn't because I was like an expectant father and more of a pain in the ****! Losing my boy part way through the process I had so much emotion tied up in this piece I wholeheartedly put my faith in Kay and she absolutely smashed it out the part. Kay has captured everything about this very special dog that I wanted to express. Everything! "Floyd…Like an Arra" Loyal Companion…Hunting Dog…Family Pet.”

"I just wanted to say how much I love the portrait you completed of Rafa. It is perfect! I cried when I opened it as it was such a lovely surprise! You have really captured him amazingly well and it has pride of place on the wall.
Thank you so much".
L Veitch

You have captured their character beautifully, love the fact that you asked my husband all about them so you felt you knew them whilst you were painting them. Poppy always crosses her paws and looks a bit grumpy, whereas Lily has that slightly cocked head with attentive tail! Such a special present, can’t thank you enough xxx 
Kay, it was a pleasure working with you on this, you not only captured their likeness but also their character. Many thanks. I guess tomorrow’s job will be putting a nail in the wall to hang it in pride of place.

I commissioned a portrait of our beloved dog who sadly passed away a few months before Christmas. Kay was fantastic to work with and kept me updated all the way. The finished portrait is beautiful and perfectly captures the personality and likeness of Alfie. It was a gift for my husband for Christmas - he was absolutely delighted and Alfie's portrait now hangs proudly in our home. 
I would highly recommend Kay. 
L Purnell 

The painting is superb and a brilliant likeness of our dog, Cookie, we were thoroughly over joyed to receive as a present. The service given to my Mum was fabulous and she was kept up to date with the progress including pictures, she said it was so easy to deal with Kay. 
Would highly recommend

Absolutely thrilled with the painting of our dear old boy. Superb quality and service.

Kay's work is outstanding, I am delighted with the painting which is such a perfect likeness of my cocker spaniel "Barkley". She made the whole process from inception, selection of source photos, development of ideas, through the painting process and final edits so much fun and I was engaged all the way through. I was quite particular about what I wanted and Kay accommodated me every step of the way. I couldn't recommend more highly. Just brilliant. 
Steve Phillips 

We absolutely love our painting of Alfie, it captures his personality perfectly and we are glad we chose Kay to paint him, can't recommend her enough. 
T Kinsey 

I can't recommend Kay highly enough. She has has done three paintings of my boys and they are amazing. If you are looking for that special gift or just something for yourself this is perfect. Nothing is too much trouble for Kay. Communication is prompt and the same is for delivery. Any queries or information you need is given quickly and in a helpful manner. 

This is the second portrait Kay has done for me and has painted several for my daughter as well, each one has been brilliant, capturing the likeness so well. Kay has an amazing talent and is a lovely lady I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone. 
F Heasman 

I am absolutely thrilled with my portrait of my dog. I opted for a pastel A3 portrait and Kay has captured my boy perfectly, her work is quite stunning. From start to finish of my purchase I was very impressed with the service. When my portrait finally arrived, it was beautifully packed and protected. I immediately had the 'Wow' factor on unveiling my portrait. I would highly recommend Kay for your pet portraits, you will not be disappointed.

I just found Pettpaintings on-line and saw that Kay was local. Can not fault the service or product and several friends have asked for details with a view to getting a portrait of their own dog. Need I say more :- They have seen how good the likeness is of our Lola. Regular phone calls and e-mail photos of the picture as she went along and Kay was more than happy to change the background to suit my taste when asked. 
J Brooker 

I was so pleased with Kay's work, friendly and approachable from the beginning and was able to kindly take on painting very last minute. The likeness and quality is wonderful and will forever be a family treasure. I can't recommend enough. Thanks again. 
N McDonough 

The portrait went down very well, all of the family were very impressed and said how well you had captured our boy. It will give us a lot of pleasure over the years. Thank you again.

The early birthday present of our beautiful "Blitz" that I gave to Matt yesterday went down extremely well, thank you Kay for your hard work - and for producing it in record time - we absolutely love it!! So lovely to have her with us once again!! 
A Bingham 

Let's start at the end - the finished portrait was of superb quality. It perfectly captured my two boys; not just their likeness, but also their personality. Now back to the beginning. Kay will advise you on how to take the best photos, and her website gives detailed descriptions of the different types of paintings she does - watercolour, graphite, acrylic and pastel. If you have a particular background or pose in mind, this can be incorporated into the portrait. Once the work is started, you are kept up to date on its progress and you get to see the finished product before it's dispatched, to make sure it meets with your approval. Finally, when the portrait is sent, it is securely packaged to completely protect the painting during transit. 
In summary, I highly recommend Kay Prior and Pettpaintings.
