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

Lady Garfield and her Pet Personality Portrait

“It is indeed a tribute to Sheena’s talent, her ability to connect with animals and her endless patience that Lady Garfield choose her to paint her official portrait. Lady Garfield dictated the terms of her availability for sittings and choice of poses and, as can be seen from the photo, she is obviously delighted that her poise and sophistication has been perfectly captured as befitting a lady who claims to be a reincarnation of Cleopatra, the queen of the Nile. “ Mary Rose and Graham Barnes, 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.
