My husband, son and I met Claire at Discover Dogs, where she was painting live. We were fascinated by her work and found out that she lived locally to us, and so she said she could come and take some photos of our old Labrador cross. The result was spectacular and we were moved to tears when the next day after Claire had delivered the painting we sadly had to put our dog Poppy down. We were however, so pleased we had commissioned Claire to paint her, and as you can see from the photo below, she captured her so well.
We thankfully have our curly coated Retriever puppy Lottie and will definitely be asking Claire to paint her in the near future.
I just wanted to thank you for our wonderful painting of Lucy, you have an amazing gift. It has pride of place at home and receives many compliments. Lucy will always be with us. Thanks again.
So so thrilled with the portrait of Milly. It's like having two happy puppy dogs in the room at once.
I was so excited when Claire said she was going to paint Stanley. I have admired her work for a while... She worked from photos taken of Stan, and sent me progress pics as she completed the picture. It was amazing to see my dog come to life on canvas. Claire has totally captured his spirit in his eyes. He's cheeky but there is an inherent sadness there too due to his abused past before I rescued him. I am so proud to own a Claire Thorogood original and it is going to take pride of place in my home!
Just wanted to let you know how thrilled we all are with the beautiful portrait of Molly. I was amazed at how accurately you captured her character right from the outset, leaving anyone who sees the painting in no doubt as to who it is. The overall result is a deeply personal and individual portrait but at the same time a piece of beautiful artwork we are happy to display anywhere in our home.Thank you so much once again

We were so impressed with the painting of our Border Collie ,Frankie. Claire captured the essence or her personality and the way she used the gold leaf to represent the autumnal woodland was a perfect way of creating a piece of artwork for a contemporary home.
It has been very much admired.

Claire is so talented. We absolutely love the painting we commissioned of our Shihtzu Loki. Its great to have a picture of him up on the wall that's not a photo,yet totally captures his personality.

When we decided to get a portrait done of Solly, we were a little anxious, as we wanted something that truly represented Solly, and what he means to us, and not a cheesy portrait. Claire thank you, you created something really special, this truly is Solly, and everyone who knows Solly and has seen the painting says that. I am very grateful.
We are absolutely delighted with our painting of Archie. Claire has brilliantly managed to capture not just his looks but his personality
