Amy the chihuahua is 11 years old and an absolute angel. She loves nothing better than to curl up on a warm lap or dive under the doona on a cold night.
Her personalised floral embellishment is a Protea, her mum's favourite flower and Amy's name is painted in script to reflect her sweet nature.
Amy's portrait is A4 Medium size 21x30cm / 8x12" painted on tea-stained heavyweight Australian handcrafted watercolour paper with Australian handcrafted watercolour paints. All portraits are created with these same professional artist materials that support other local small business ventures.
The eyes are painted in first......
.....then the nose, mouth and the many layers of watercolour are applied to slowly build up the coat......
......and lastly the highlights, whiskers and personalised name and floral embellishments are added to complete the portrait.

"After searching for almost a year and ready to give up finding an artist to take on this special job, I discovered Kyles. In a few short weeks Kyles created the most amazing black and white portrait of a family pet who sadly passed suddenly last year. I can not express my gratitude enough not only did the picture represent our Luke so well but no little details were left out even down to the little mole on his face. This portrait will be treasure forever and will sit above his ashes for all to admire and remember. Thank you again!" KS

Beautiful Brandy is a cocker spaniel who has now passed over the rainbow bridge. This portrait was commissioned by her mum's lovely children, who also grew up with Brandy, as a memorial gift to remember her by.
Brandy's portrait size is the popular A4 Medium 21x30cm / 8x12" and has been embellished with roses as they are a favourite of Brandy's mum who is an avid rose gardener. Full body portrait was painted as the photo suited it best.

Thank you so much Kyle you did an amazing job!" JH
"Where do I begin? My 7 yr old long haired chihuahua (Zippy) was diagnosed with prostate cancer on April 12th, 2018. He was given 2 weeks-2 months to live. My husband and I were devastated, to say the least. I found Kyles’ watercolour of her chihuahua (Amy) on a post. I was amazed by the detail. I contacted her to paint our boy. Kyles was fantastic to work with! She gave several updates and, dare I say, asked for my opinion. I must have contacted her 2 dozen times with new thoughts and information. And not one time did she seem frustrated or bothered by my input. In fact, she welcomed it! The end result was nothing short of spectacular! This was a surprise gift for my husband and he was overwhelmed by the likeness. I cannot recommend Kyles highly enough. Her talent is beyond compare. Kudos to Kyles!" KR
