  5. Karie is so talented and so lovely to work with my parents love the Portrait we had done for them

  6. We met Karie Ann at the Malvern Spring show 2018 and immediately fell in love with her work. We ordered a commission and collected it from her studio. Karie Ann is a truly talented individual. The work she had created for us is truly amazing.
    She provided regular updates as the commission developed and on completion it was framed and a small name plaque added as part of our request.
    The work she has created is of our three terriers. Karie Ann has captured their characters and spirit and we are truly thrilled with the completed work. It takes our breathe away every time we look at it.
    Karie Ann is a wonderful and genuinely warm individual, who takes great pride in the work she produces. Definitely Recommend Karie Ann as an artist.
    Thank you

  7. OMG… What can I say, an absolutely stunning portrait I couldn’t ask for anything better the likeness if great and she really captured his chilled happy vibe 100% would recommend to everyone,!! Thank you Karie-Ann

  8. Thank you so much Karie for the wonderful portrait of my beautiful cat, Smokey, who I sadly lost this year. So happy with it and cannot recommend you enough!

  9. We received the portrait of our beloved 20 year old cat, Buster, yesterday and were staggered by just how talented Karie is. She has captured him perfectly. It’s almost as if she’s waved a magic wand in a Harry Potter style so that he can be lifted up out of the portrait. Pure genius. Thank you Karie. Your artwork reflects your personality – beautiful xxx

  10. So so happy with our portrait of our dog Stanley.
    It’s amazing.

  11. Absolutely stunning charcoal of my furry friend. I cannot thank Karie-ann enough for bringing her to life in this way, her talent is truly remarkable. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.xx

  12. Karie-Ann created a truly wonderful portrait of my son’s lurcher Eddie who he had to have put to sleep last February. To see the finished painting was very emotional for me and for my son as he looked so full of life. Karie is so very talented and I am hoping she will be able to create a portrait of my lurcher.

  13. She’s arrived!!! BEAUTIFUL, I love it, not had much chance to admire her as the kids came home!! I’m going to have a good look tomorrow and decide what frame to get and where to put her. Thank you very much you are very very talented, I’d love to be able to draw and paint but it’s not to be!!!

  14. Mason has arrived, and he is beautiful!

  15. Hi Karie, Many thanks for the picture of Missy – I love it!!!!! You are so good! Cannot wait till Xmas to give it to him!

  16. I gave the portrait of Honey our terrier cross to my husband yesterday. This was a surprise present for his 60th birthday. He was quite overwhelmed, and couldn’t stop looking at it throughout the day and showing it to visitors that came to the house. Karie you have an amazing talent and are a lovely person also. Thank you for your time and patience getting the portrait just right. We will treasure it always. I would recommend Karie to anyone considering a Pet Portrait. The detail is incredible and true to life. The regular emails with updates and photographs of work in progress are great. Nothing is too much trouble for this lady. So the finished item is perfect. Once again thank you so much. xx

  17. Hi Karie, Holiday has been fab, flying home tomorrow night. We think its spot on, the only trouble is it makes me want to cry it’s so lifelike. You have a huge talent, it’s amazing. Thank you very much and see you soon.

  18. Lola was named after the Barry Manilow song – her brother is Rico! This picture has so caught her personality it is incredible, thank you so much. You are incredible!

  19. Fabulous service and artwork, I cannot recommend highly enough and I will be back early next year to have some more of my gang painted.

  20. We love our Buttons. She’s a 70th birthday present for mum, who celebrates on Christmas Day. Needless to say that Mum loves her… she sits alongside Pepper and Muffin (a dog who we had when I was child). When I’d collected the finished portrait and showed her to Dad, he gave her a hug!! Thanks Karie PS Mum says, “What a shame you never met Butty, perhaps we’ll have to introduce you to our Tasha.”

  21. We met Karie at the Malvern Autumn Show and were astounded at the detail within her pet portraits and her approach to realism. Karie has taken much care and attention in getting the portrait of our two terriers, Murphy and Alfred, just as we wanted it – Karie worked from a number of photographs and did the background to our specific request. We got regular updates on how the painting was progressing, which was very reassuring. We are extremely pleased with the end result and it is a perfect tribute to and reminder of Murphy who had passed away. You can tell that Karie loves her subject and understands dogs! Thank you again!

  22. Karie-Ann has done a excellent job with my miniature schnauzer pastel painting . Karie has brought Frankie and Dolly to life and i couldn’t be more pleased with the result . I will not look any further than Karie for any future work i require. She is a exceptional talent and a lovely person too.

  23. Karie did a beautiful charcoal of my daughters French bull dog at short notice and really saved the day for me, as it was a birthday present, karie kept me updated with her work and was lovely to deal with, will be getting her to do more portraits next year!

  24. I was looking for a pet portrait artist that did horses to help me surprise my mother for a special birthday. I came across Karie, who was wonderful from start to finish, kept informed with updates right through to the finished picture, which was stunning, and gratefully received with happy tears! Her detail in her work was amazing and I would be more than happy to def recommended to anyone. Thank you Karie!

  25. Absolutely fabulous charcoal portrait of our poodle Taffy. Karie -Ann went out of her way to fit us into her schedule for a special present and out of her way to visit Taffy for a photo session. Very impressed with everything – service was perfect – she kept us informed with updates every step of the process – we were very happy with the result. Gill and Roger Walker

  26. I got a picture drawn by Karie. I was so surprised on how professional Karie is. I got continuous updates to see the progression of my picture and I was always looking forward to seeing the next stage. Karie is an amazingly talented artist and such a lovely person. I will recommend her to everyone I know. Karie made the whole process as easy as possible and I never had to chase her about anything. I will definitely be purchasing more art from Karie in the future and I express that if you do get any art done by Karie you will not be disappointed. I love my picture so much, it really is incredible.

  27. We were so pleased with our commission for a friend. Karie was kind enough to do it in double quick time for the special day and kept us posted every step of the way. She listened carefully to our minor comments and the result was a beautiful portrait that our friend was delighted with. I cannot recommend Karie highly enough. She is caring, attentive and very talented indeed. Put a booking in now for Christmas, you will not be disappointed and it is a unique gift. I badly want one of my dogs!

  28. I can’t recommend Karie’s work enough, it’s simply amazing. She has an incredible talent of bringing her subject to life and has an incredible eye for detail which makes her portraits so accurate. When I look at the portrait I can feel the softness of the dogs fur, and their eyes are so full of life that they look right back at you, she captures their personalities so beautifully. I’ve had two done and will order more. One thing I would recommend is to hang her work somewhere at eye level where you can stand close and absorb it, they really are wonderful.

  29. I have just had a portrait of mine and my sons dog, Toby, done. Right from the start, Karie kept me well informed and really wanted to know the background and personality of Toby as well as his physical appearance. The finished portrait is amazing. Every hair is as it is in real life and the eyes are just like looking at Toby in the flesh. I cannot recommend Karie highly enough to anyone looking for a pet portrait.

  30. Several years ago we commissioned Karie-Ann to paint a 8×12 custom pastel painting of our beautiful tuxedo cat Tess. Karie-Ann did a spectacular job of replicating our cat’s true likeness. I highly recommend this fabulous and very talented artist to anyone who wants to capture the beauty and spirit of their treasured pet. Karie-Ann gets a 5 star rating from me. We have recently commissioned her to paint a portrait of our dog Josh that we recently lost. I would not consider another artist other than Karie-Ann to bring out the true likeness, beauty and spirit of him.

  31. I have had a portrait done of my two spaniels and a bag, now having some coasters, not only is she a brilliant artist, but a lovely person too.

  32. My partner and I wanted to get a portrait done of his Mum’s beloved French Mastiff, Eddie, who sadly passed away earlier in the year, to give to her as a Christmas present. Karie’s work really caught our eye and we contacted her just a month before Christmas asking if she was available, and I’m so glad she was because the portrait that we commissioned is absolutely beautiful and it arrived well in time for Christmas. The lovely Karie sent us regular e-mails with photos of Eddie’s progress, (as well as advice on framing and mounts) and it looked great even from the first photo! The finished piece is truly stunning (better than the reference photo) and really shows Eddie’s character and playful expression. It arrived next day after it was shipped and was very well packaged. We couldn’t be happier. My partner’s Mum loved the portrait so much that she cried, and agreed that it was an incredible portrait by a great artist and a lovely sentiment to Eddie. We’re so glad that we chose Karie, as she is a very talented artist as well as a lovely person. Thank you so much, once again, for the wonderful portrait of our four-legged best friend.

  33. Super Art… Kudos… Well Done.. The pictures come of the page as if they were photos… Keep up the good work !

  34. Amazing work! And utterly amazing lady!

  35. I own lots of Karie-Ann’s stunning work, two beautiful prints and three original works of art, a wonderful memorial portrait of my jack russell Widget, a fabulous white tiger and an adorable bunny. The attention to detail is superb, as is the communication and professionalism. I can not recommend highly enough.

  36. Your paintings are wonderful. My favorite piece is the border collie painting (the one with front view), but so many paintings are gorgeous

  37. There is such a passion in your art work that sometimes leaves me breathless and in awe.I don’t know how you find the time with working full time as should open a gallery.

  38. Love your art Karie. I have never seen such beautiful and creative art of animals before. You are really a Talented lady..
