Thank you for bringing joy to the world with your art. Without artists like you, our homes would be sterile and our hearts would be empty. Thank you!

" I couldn't believe what we saw when we opened up our package. This is so amazing and special!! Kind of bitter sweet as I was just thinking how Double had been gone from our lives for exactly one month yesterday...then this beautiful painting showed up ... So incredible! It is like he is here again...so lifelike! I have to admit it made me cry a bit....but they were happy tears! I cannot thank you enough for such a thoughtful gift and gesture! It is already hanging on the wall. I sure do miss that boy with the sweet face and soft ears! I wanted to let you know we received this most special gift and thank you again from the bottom of my heart!! We will cherish it forever!"

"Over emails and a couple of phone calls, Monique captured the personalities and expressions of my two Bernedoodles in a beautiful portrait I will treasure forever! I left the background of the portrait to her discretion and she created something very funky with the colours that complement our home. I would not hesitate for Monique to paint another pet portrait for me… it is truly faithful to the photographs I sent her."

"Monique painted a memorial of Jax, my family's beloved Jack Russell Terrier. Monqiue is incredibly talented with extraordinary attention to detail along with an ability to bring out personality and character through her work. Jax loved roaming the wheat fields of our farm and the portrait embodies the spirit of Jax. When my parents opened this gift it brought them to tears. They were incredibly touched and now Jax's portrait is proudly displayed in their home and it feels like part of him is still with us. Thank you Monique!"
“You did an amazing job! Shadow is portrayed in a very sweet way - great way to be remembered. Our friends in Boston will love the blue background too. It works really well - ie: his portrait is full of character and you present him most empathetically , and the formal and figurative aspects are finely crafted.”
- David and Elaine, Montreal (Shadow)
You have captured her perfectly and we love it!
We are going to hang it in the kitchen by the back door where we will be able to see her all the time. I love the blue behind her.... She really stands out!
