"I commissioned Kelly to draw a picture of my mother-in-law's Lhasa Apso (Whisky).
Kelly takes great care in ensuring she captures the character of the subject which has resulted in not just a picture of the breed of dog, but is unmistakably Whisky. Kelly is an incredible, gifted artist." March 2022

"I commissioned Kelly to do three portraits, one of my Goddaughter and the others were of her younger brother and sister..... The portraits are amazing! They really capture each child beautifully and are incredibly accurate.
When I gave them to their parents for Christmas they were in tears, they were absolutely delighted with them; the children also love them. Kelly is an incredible artist, the gift she has for portraiture is exceptional. I had the portraits professionally framed and they now have pride of place in their lounge for everyone to enjoy."

The drawing caught their personalities perfectly & the precision with which she drew their features was simply amazing. It brought a tear to my eye when I first saw it & it had the same effect when my Mum opened the present. It will provide joy for years to come & I can't thank Kelly enough for such a beautiful drawing." March 2016
