 Read on.

  • All commissioned paintings will be featured on my website and will be available as prints and canvases.  This means you can also treat family members to a print to match your painting, and you will receive a special discount to use. Hurray! 

  • I only paint one subject per painting as each animal deserves their own space. Although I realise some of you would prefer 2 doggies on one painting it just doesn't work with my technique and style. It is much better to give each one my full attention and capture their unique character without them fighting for attention.  If you want 2 or more, please add more paintings at time of booking.


Size options

  • 60 - The most popular option is the 60 cm painting. It is the optimum size for subject detail and allows enough space for some good splashes and pattern. The painting is on a specially prepared board and framed in a contemporary floating frame. - £2200 

  •  100 - “The Biggie” 1-metre square painting – this is a cracker! If you want to really make a statement, this sexy beast is what you need! This format gives us plenty of space for some serious splashing and ultra-detailing work. It will blow your socks off! This beauty is painted on a chunky canvas board without a frame - £5000  UK only (VERY limited availability)


“From the very beginning of the commission Sarah was so easy to deal with. I needed a bit of help getting the right light and size of picture for Sarah to capture all the detail and Sarah provided this without hesitation. After a few rounds of vetting my photography skills, we settled on a pic. As the commission developed Sarah provided progress updates with pictures so I could see the transformation from start to finish which was fantastic to see.

When it arrived and I could see it in real life I couldn’t have been happier! The commission was a gift for my wife’s birthday. She was delighted with it and Jimmy now hangs in our hall at the front door so our family and friends can see him first when arriving. We’ve recently taken another furry friend and once he’s fully grown, we won’t hesitate to have another commission done by Sarah of him.” Dave

Other animals!

Althoughthere are a lot of dogs featured here, I do take commissions for lots of other animals too! This colourful Sulphur-crested cockatoo was painted specially for a lovely Australian couple living in London who wanted something to remind them of home. They picked out colours they wanted to include , and I brought him to life with my unique painting technique.

"Sarah was a real pleasure to work with. She was very professional and made sure that the style and colours were what we wanted, without overwhelming us with choices. She has made a painting for us that is now the best piece of art in the house. It makes me happy every time I look at it." Annabel



“Having a few of Sarah’s prints already, I was looking for a fitting way to remember our Springer, Buster who my wife adored, so I commissioned Sarah to paint our recently departed family member. From choosing the pictures to use, choosing the colour scheme and discussing the progress stages, the whole process was easy and inclusive.

My wife was amazed at the end result and how realistic Buster looked especially his eyes! 5*’s Sarah”


"I decided to commission a piece from Sarah as a present for my Wife. I found Sarah a pleasure to deal with and was engaging throughout. Marie my wife was absolutely delighted and overwhelmed when she received my special gift.

Sarah totally captured Otto’s personality. He has taken prime position in our living room.

If you're considering a piece of Sarah’s artwork you will not be disappointed, I can assure you.

Our boy is Stunning! 👌"


"I have been meaning to catch in touch with you to say how pleased we are with your painting.

The experience was so smooth and inclusive and the end result even better than I could have wished for!

My husband was SO pleased with the painting and it has taken pride of place in our living room. I love it! It’s so amazing - thank you so much"
