When I met Lulu for the first time she was the essence of a welcoming, happy and friendly dog.  I created some drawings and Jan chose the one she preferred.   As the painting revealed itself on canvas I noticed a certain expression I had not consciously picked up on when I looked into her eyes.  I showed Jan the painting before doing any more work and Jan burst out laughing.  “Yes”.
I had caught the wonderful sassy nature to a tee!  Lulu is gorgeous- and was a complete pleasure to paint.

I cannot thank Sheena enough for the wonderful portrait of my daughters mini Yorkie, Lulu, Sheena captured Lulu’s sassy personality in a beautiful painting for my daughters 16th birthday. Aside from the wonderful painting we have, we had a wonderful experience with Sheena from first photo to finished product. A true and dedicated professional. Thank you Sheena

Ceili, Irish Wolfhound, Sarah and Mark at Trinity College Dublin

When I commissioned Sheena to paint a picture to give as an engagement gift for my daughter Sarah and her fiancĂ© Mark I had an idea, an emotion I was trying to portray.  After lengthy discussions, emails and a meeting, Sheena understood what I wanted and put her brilliant talent to work.  

I was absolutely delighted when I saw the finished painting, it had so much more meaning than I could ever have imagined.  Sarah and Mark had met while studying in Trinity College.   Sheena did a beautiful  painting of Trinity but also of Sarah and Mark and Sarah’s beautiful Irish Wolfhound Ceili alongside them walking from the arch towards the front gates. 
It was just perfect, and it is now hanging very proudly over their fireplace.  

Sheena also painted in gold, two wedding bands entwined and after their marriage she will inscribe the dates in the bands.

This is a precious gift that they will always treasure.  Thank you so much Sheena for your dedication and your attention to detail, for listening and for all your hard work and for giving us a wonderful painting that will be in our family for many many generations.

Testimonial for Pet Portrait by Sheena Meagher Artist

Lady Garfield is bowled over by her portrait- in the best possible way!!

“It is indeed a tribute to Sheena’s talent, her ability to connect with animals and her endless patience that Lady Garfield choose her to paint her official portrait.
Lady Garfield dictated the terms of her availability for sittings and choice of poses and, as can be seen from the photo, she is obviously delighted that her poise and sophistication has been perfectly captured as befitting a lady who claims to be a reincarnation of Cleopatra, the queen of the Nile. “

Tribute from the customer
‘It is a great joy to find an artwork that reflects the person you are buying for as a present. Sheena’s Lurcher images struck with great force when I came across them and as a result brought considerable pleasure to the friend who received the painting ‘Relaxed Yet Interested’. Sheena shows an intimate understanding and insight to the wonderful natures of the Lurchers and Whippets who, with the Greyhound are the undiscovered & ideal pets for any home and family. The effect our friend says it all. ‘Thank you! Thank you! You are both VERY naughty. The painting is absolutely fabulous and I love it.’  Stefan
