LULU A Beautiful Miniature Yorkshire Terrier with a Huge Personality

When I met Lulu for the first time she was the essence of a welcoming, happy and friendly dog.  I created some drawings and Jan chose the one she preferred.   As the painting revealed itself on canvas I noticed a certain expression I had not consciously picked up on when I looked into her eyes.  I showed Jan the painting before doing any more work and Jan burst out laughing.  “Yes”. I had caught the wonderful sassy nature to a tee!  Lulu is gorgeous- and was a complete pleasure to paint. Thanks Jan for this testimonial; I cannot thank Sheena enough for the wonderful portrait of my daughters mini Yorkie, Lulu, Sheena captured Lulu’s sassy personality in a beautiful painting for my daughters 16th birthday. Aside from the wonderful painting we have, we had a wonderful experience with Sheena from first photo to finished product. A true and dedicated professional. Thank you Sheena Jan Lenihan

Relaxed yet Interested

Received from a satisfied customer; ‘It is a great joy to find an artwork that reflects the person you are buying for as a present. Sheena’s Lurcher images struck with great force when I came across them and as a result brought considerable pleasure to the friend who received the painting ‘Relaxed Yet Interested’. Sheena shows an intimate understanding and insight to the wonderful natures of the Lurchers and Whippets who, with the Greyhound are the undiscovered & ideal pets for any home and family. The effect our friend says it all. ‘Thank you! Thank you! You are both VERY naughty. The painting is absolutely fabulous and I love it.’ Stefan Nyland

Dallas; A Great Smile! As an owner of a pitbull I am used to the discrimination that these dogs can endure but upon a chance meeting with Sheena she instantly saw the beauty within my dog regardless of breed. She did an amazing job capturing the essence of Dallas (my dog) and I could not be more pleased with her work. The picture, the cards and keyrings are all amazing and I’m glad to have these beautiful pieces that I can show my friends and family as I’m very proud of my dog and I love her dearly. Leona. Co.

Wolfhound, Trinity College Dublin – engagement commission

While my Pet Personality Portraits feature the pet, I am sometimes asked to paint a pet with a special toy or in a particular place. An example is a painting of Sarah and Mark walking through the front gates of Trinity College Dublin with their Irish Wolf Hound, Ceili. “When I commissioned Sheena to paint a picture to give as an engagement gift for my daughter Sarah and her fiancé Mark I had an idea, an emotion I was trying to portray. After lengthy discussions, emails and a meeting, Sheena understood what I wanted and put her brilliant talent to work. I was absolutely delighted when I saw the finished painting, it had so much more meaning than I could ever have imagined. Sarah and Mark had met while studying in Trinity College. Sheena did a beautiful painting of Trinity but also of Sarah and Mark and Sarah’s beautiful Irish Wolfhound Ceili alongside them walking from the arch towards the front gates. It was just perfect, and it is now hanging very proudly over their fireplace. Sheena also painted in gold, two wedding bands entwined and after their marriage she will inscribe the dates in the bands. This is a […]

Whippet

A beautiful and kind natured Collooney Whippet I had the opportunity to paint. When we commissioned Sheena to do a portrait of Ozzy, she insisted on spending time with him to get to know him. We are so happy with the final outcome as she has really captured the essence of his personality. It’s the Ozzy we see sitting on the couch beside us every night. We also love the painting on the coaster, cushion, greeting cards and key chain. John and Zul, Dublin
