There’s no greater joy for an artist to have the responsibility to bring to life someone’s vision.
An ideal gift for someone you care about,
Tribute or Memorial
Getting your pet portrait painted is a very easy process. I can do the painting from a photography or in studio photo shoot. If the pet has passed on, it helps to have a selection of photography’s.
For the portrait we can then discuss about the size, composition and the painting options(watercolour, oil or encaustic) and framing. Cost start at €250 for a 30x30cm framed painting. The normal timeline is 6 weeks, but this can change if the painting is bigger.
Based on our discussion on portrait position, I will give you 3 proposals for composition. Once the painting is 80% we can discuss the fine detail, you can make changes at this stage. A frame option is then confirmed and the finishing off process such as varnish, glass, mounting decided.
Final day is when you look at the complete painting and if you are happy payment can be made and it is yours.
I offer Pet Portrait Gift Vouchers. Send me their name and address and the amount of the voucher and I will post it to them free of charge. Great Christmas idea.
We were thrilled to find a very ‘live’ painting of our goat at a Christmas fair in Doonbeg. He was painted by Helen Lowe who was a pleasure to deal with.
He now hangs in our home in Lahinch where goats are synonymous with the golf club and is very much admired by all.
Dealing with Helen was a pleasure, very professional, practical and helpful. Navigating, selecting and ordering through Helen’s website was a very easy process.
I fell in love with Helen’s cow painting when I first clapped eyes on her and she now hangs very beautifully in my home in Leitrim. Helen’s use of colour and application brings her subject alive. How wonderful that the artist even delivers the painting in person.
I first encountered Helen’s artwork at an exhibition when I was on a trip to Ireland and was so impressed that I bought two of her excellent glicee prints.
I looked her up on the internet and decided to buy some packets of her greeting cards depicting the West Coast landscape. The package arrived very promptly, securely packed and included a gift as I had difficulty in accessing the Paypal option for payment. I am very pleased with my purchases, hence will continue to be a return client.
Purchased a high quality “Singing Robin” fine art giiclee print from Helen for my sisters birthday. So pleased, it was beautifully reproduced from the original water colour using specialist art printing processes.
My sister loves it!
