Cat Portraits from photos

Not only have I been a dog owner, but I also grew up with a cat called Tiger. He was a ginger tomcat and lived to be 24 years old! Cats can be so loving and want nothing more than to curl up with you, but also I know that some cats are more independent and want to be outside off exploring!

Each cat is unique and has a personality of its own.  It is important to me that I show this in my cat portraits.  See below a recent testimonial for a lovely cat painting that I did for a client in the USA.

“I have to say that I literally cried when I received Lorraine’s pastel portrayal of my late kitty, Honey.  It was evident that so much thought and care was put into combining the best of Honey’s features from the photos I sent to show Honey’s physical beauty, as well as her loving personality.  The art was so carefully wrapped to arrive here in NY from the UK.  Thank you, Lorraine.  I will treasure this until the day I die.”

"Recently received a superb pastel of our late friend 'Charlie' the cat, very lifelike and now takes pride of place on the wall in the lounge watching the goings on! Lovely quality and excellent service."

"Shortly after our cat Archie died I asked Lorraine to do his portrait. It is so stunning and the perfect reminder of a beloved pet gone too soon. Lorraine worked so hard to get him perfect. I then asked for a portrait of our dog Charlie as a surprise for my husbands birthday which I'm struggling to keep a secret as I keep sneaking a look at it. It's just so beautiful. Lorraine has a wonderful way of capturing personality beautifully. She's also the easiest person to contact and chat with, knows how important it is to get it right and is a complete professional. If only everyone was so easy to work with."

"Thank you so much - the portrait of Charlie was a huge success and he has now taken pride of place on the wall in the lounge overseeing the family!! My husband took a while to be convinced it wasn't a photo as it is so realistic!! And the frame compliments it perfectly. You've managed to capture Charlie's character as well - and without ever meeting him!! He was a very special cat and that comes across - my husband is thrilled to have a constant reminder of his "best friend" in the house. Many thanks for your hard work - I'd love to leave a review if you can tell me where and how - but am also happy for you to use this review (edited or otherwise!!) on your website."
