NEEDLE PAINTING COMMISSIONS

In the twelve years since I first started doing embroidery professionally I have found a real love in embroidering animals, my aim is to capture the character of the animal and to make it look life like. Often people have remarked to me that the finished embroidery looks better than the photo and more lifelike than a painting. There is always a great desire among observers to touch the embroidery and feel the fur as it looks so real and the owners of the pet always are so pleased with the results they often say that is their pet sitting on the fabric, a great way to preserve the memory of the pet.

If you would like a portrait of your pet, animal or flower simply mail me or email me with several pictures of the desired image and I can choose the best picture and give you a quote for the cost of the embroidery. If you decide that you are not interested in an embroidery I will return your pictures at no charge.

A portrait begins at $650 Canadian dollars for a 4 inch by 4 inch embroidery.

$950 Canadian dollars for a 5 inch by 5 inch embroidery.

$1260 Canadian dollars for a 6 inch by 6 inch embroidery.

$1568 Canadian dollars for a 7 inch by 7 inch embroidery.

Animal Portraits: My animal portraits are worked in a single strand of DMC floss in the needle at one time, typically a range of 10 - 16  different coloured threads are used in the whole embroidery. The portrait is worked in long and short stitches, thousands of stitches are worked in the same direction and colour as the fur of the animal that I am working. The stitches catch the light giving the animals fur a glossy look as in nature.

Bird Portraits: My bird portraits are worked in a single strand of DMC floss in the needle at one time, typically a range of 10 - 16  different coloured threads are used in the whole embroidery. The portrait is worked in long and short stitches, thousands of stitches are worked in the same direction and colour as the feathers of the bird that I am working.

Cat Portraits: My cat portraits are worked in a single strand of DMC floss in the needle at one time, typically a range of 10 - 16 different coloured threads are used in the whole embroidery. The portrait is worked in long and short stitches, thousands of stitches are worked in the same direction and colour as the fur of the animal that I am working. The stitches catch the light giving the animals fur a glossy look as in nature.

Dog Portraits: My dog portraits are worked in a single strand of DMC floss in the needle at one time, typically a range of 10 - 16 different coloured threads are used in the whole embroidery. The portrait is worked in long and short stitches, thousands of stitches are worked in the same direction and colour as the fur of the animal that I am working. The stitches catch the light giving the animals fur a glossy look as in nature.

Flower Portraits:  flower portraits are worked in a single strand of DMC floss in the needle at one time, typically a range of 10 -16  different coloured threads are used in the whole embroidery. The flower is worked in long and short stitches, thousands of stitches are worked following the shape of the leaves and petals resulting in a 3-dimensional realistic embroidery.
