When we asked Sam to draw our portrait from a photo we gave her, we had no idea of how beautifully she would capture our essence. We were blown away by how real the picture was. Delicate touches of colour here and there brought it alive, gave it depth. There is an exceptional quality to the picture that is difficult to put into words. It really is “us” and we love it!
Amazing artist she captures the true character of both person and animal.
My hubby and myself are delighted with the result and is just like little Beanie with his lovely eye expression and full character. Well done and thank you, you deserve to make a huge success of your art career.
