Medium: coloured pencils with a little acrylic paint on archival watercolour paper. PRIVATE COLLECTION – This commissioned pet pawtrait of Chloe a Coton De Tuleur dog was requested when she had passed after sixteen loved years with her owners.


“Recently my husband and I had to say goodbye to our beloved Chloe a sixteen and a half year old Coton de Tulear.

We were devastated and miss her so much.

Chloe was happy loving and her joy in her life was to make us happy and be at our side constantly.

Because of our age we have decided not to have another animal in our lives but we needed to have something to remember her by and decided we wanted a portrait of her.

We asked a friend if she knew someone who did this type of work and how lucky for us that she did and recommended Jeannette.

Jeannette made arrangements to come to our home to meet with us so that she could get a sense of Chloe’s personality and asked for us to describe her in our words.

We knew that Jeannette could feel our pain and we just knew that she would be able to capture Chloe’s loving and cute personality in her art.

We gave her pictures of Chloe and described what we wanted from each picture as each one had something different.

When Jeannette brought us the finished portrait of Chloe we were blown away.

It was like having her in the room with us.

She captured the look in her eyes and, the expression on her face is unbelievable.

Needless to say we are thrilled with the portrait. We would recommend Jeannette to anyone who would like to have their animal captured in art as she was so pleasant to work with and she understood our feelings of love for our little girl.

Thank you Jeannette we are truly grateful that you were recommended to us and for the beautiful work you did on our beloved Chloe.”
