When I asked Diane to draw a portrait of our lemon and white beagle,
James, I wondered if she was the right person to capture him. I
knew she did a great job with thw mastiff breeds, but could she capture
the soft expression and delicate coloring of this gentle soul?
The answer is a resounding YES!
They say the eyes are the window to the soul, and it's his soul that she captured perfectly. When I took the portrait to be framed, the gallery owned was so impressed with Diane's work that she asked me for her contact information, saying she had rarely seen sure exquisite detail.
I will treasure this portrait!

I have commissioned Diane to draw two of my beloved Rottweilers,each
with very very different personalities. Each drawing very much
reflects those individual personalities.
I am so pleased with her work I can't really put it into words. (1, 2)

Diane to draw one of her Rottweilers. An amazing image of a beautiful
This past July, my wonderful heart dog, Max, passed away. Shortly after his passing, I came across one of Diane's drawings and immediately e-mailed Diane.
Luckily enough, Diane was able to put me and Max on the list. Diane kept me updated on her progress throughout the drawing - only adding to our excitement to see the finished product. And what Diane presented to us was incredible!! She captured Max as he was, a loving soul whose eyes went right through me.
Max was my love and Diane's interpretation moves me to tears!!! Thank you, Diane!!
