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.

I cant recommend kyles enough. The care,love and attention she puts into each piece of art work. Very talented and always compassionate. Anyone who chooses to ask Kyles to draw their fury loved one will NOT be dissapointed. Thankyou Kyles xox JE

Oliver the pug is a strong-minded 10 year old gentleman who does as he pleases - but a gentle mumma's boy at heart. Adored and worshiped by his family, he lives a life of luxury as all pugs feel entitled too!

A4 Medium 25x25cm / 10x10" square format was selected to best accentuate Oliver's rolly-polly roundness and simple scrolls were added to his name for a touch of elegance. 

Kyles is a very rare gem of an artist! She literally made my boy come to life on paper. Fantastic how she caught every last detail to the letter! I’m extremely happy and very proud to have worked with her and look forward to another very soon! DU

Look at these guys! Such a ball painting little Julia and her sister Gnomie in their chosen attire to reflect their quirky personalities. A fun twist on a pet portrait which will bring their mum plenty of giggles in the coming years.

They were painted A4 Medium 21x30cm size on tea-stained heavy hand-made paper with hand-crafted watercolours. A pencil sketch was completed first for approval the rubbed back lighter for painting directly over the top of the image.

Kyles is the best. Her art work is unparalleled and she’s so kind and helpful when you want your dogs to be wearing festive hats. I look forward to commissioning many more portraits from her. KG
My beautiful girl passed a few months back and I asked Kyles if she could paint my little girl. She loved her life here and we loved having her in our family. Well, my oh my I have not stopped crying since I received her yesterday. She has captured her to the fullest. This lady has done the most wonderful job. She captured everything about her. I am so blessed to have found Kylie to do this for me. I will treasure this all and every day. I highly recommend Kyles Honeyman. Thank you once again! KF
She is absolutely the best artist! Her painting of my Tiny girl was perfect. It is precious!!! I highly recommend her!!! EL

Darling little Tiny the chihuahua was such a sweet girl to paint for her Mama in the USA. Lots of beautiful shades of colour to her coat and those big, dark, doe eyes!

The finished product was just beautiful but I really loved the contact that we had throughout the process, the developing product that she showed me, and the decisions that Kyles helped me make. My mum absolutely loved her gift. It is a beautiful keepsake of her beloved Charlie. Thanks so much Kyles . SR

Darling Ball was commissioned by her wonderful mum as a memorial. She was full of character, loved to lounge around on her back and had the most beautiful temperament.

I had to have my dear old cat put to sleep in January and thought about getting a large photo of her printed but then I came across Kyles posts on facebook.  I received my beautiful artwork yesterday and it is absolutely stunning!!! Words cannot express my amazement at the image Kyles has created. The paper she used makes my dear old cat appear to be right there looking at me!!! Well done Kyles and Thank you!!!! A treasure to keep in memory of Ball.

Kyles' art is extraordinary and beautifully captures the subject with incredible detail. I can't even begin to say how pleased I am with my portrait which has captured the essence of my beautiful girl. I can't recommend Kyles highly enough. LJ

This sweetheart is Miss Kujo, ageing gracefully and Queen of her balmy northern Australian paradise. Her darling mum treated herself to this gift making Kujo's chihuahua buddies green with envy I'm sure!

Bruce's portrait was commissioned by his lovely Mum, as a memorial gift for her own Dad who also misses this scruffy little fellow dearly.

Jacob's portrait is A4 Medium square format 25x25cm / 10x10" with his Mum's favourite roses to embellish his name. His little feet were part of the pose and are just so darned cute!

The process from start to finish was easy and relaxing. I’d never done anything like this before and Kyles made it a pleasure all the way through. She really can’t do enough for you and the development of the portrait was fantastic to watch. Worth every penny and I will be using her again. You will not regret it -the portrait is amazing. Thanks Kyles! JC
"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!"

Kyle sent progress pictures from start to finish and my mum and step father were just amazed at the painting. Highly recommend and will definantly be using her again. 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

Zippy is a super handsome long haired chihuahua from the USA who is dearly loved by his family but only has limited time left in this world.
