Pets or People
About the Artist Mary Dodd Hi I'm Mary and I have a studio in Lea, near Malmesbury in Wiltshire. I have been a painter for many years and have had 9 solo exhibitions in places as diverse as The Emperor Eugenie's Palace in Cairo, Egypt, a five star Hotel in Bahrain, a small English tearoom, a local library, Hong Kong and laterly in Malmesbury Town Hall. I spend my days painting commissions for portraits of people and pets, and fine art of other kinds. I have exported paintings to the USA. I also have a website which has my art & design of other descriptions:
and a Facebook art page:
Commissioned Paintings of -
People - Adults, children, babies, family groups and people with their pets.
Pets - Dogs, Cats, Horses, rabbits, (any animal really) Boats, Cars, Houses - anything you like!
Landscapes: Your favourite scene or holiday photo of the scenery or the seaside!
Paintings from your own photographs
I will paint from your very own photos. Just send to me as many as you have of your subject and tell me any other requirements - whatever you have in mind and I will do my best to paint your beloved person - family member, friend, pet, car etc, and produce a stunning work of art to immortalise them forever. You can send them email or by recorded delivery or registered post,. Give me a call and discuss your ideas and I will give you a quote. When agreed, I will paint in oils, acrylics or pencils on either stretched canvases, canvas boards or acrylic paper, your very own picture.
Below is a series of photographs of my own dog Barney, from the original, through to the initial sketch and then the final completion stages. As you can see I don't slavishly follow the photograph, but create my own version of it, only including the detail that it needs and leaving out everything else. The final painting is an original piece of art, painted in my own style not a painted photograph.
This is a perfect gift for your loved one, to celebrate that wedding, big birthday or anniversary. I promise they'll be delighted. And so will you!
