Jack Russell and his sculptureThis page is dedicated to some of the hundreds of pets I have had the pleasure of sculpting over the years…and to their wonderful people. Thank you for the gift of your notes & emails!

Oh, how I wish we would have found Kathryn many years ago. There is no way that we can express our feelings to have sculptures of our own babies. Kathryn has an absolutely amazing talent and when we received our Rolex and Precious, we were in tears. For her to capture what we see on a daily basis and is in our hearts from a picture, is truly a gift from God. We will return to Kathryn until she has captured all of our babies that we hold so dear.”

“Hi Kathryn, hope you had a good Christmas.

The sculpture is fantastic, a lot better than I imagined it would be and you’ve put in a tremendous effort to getting the item to look like Ben. My Mum was crying when she opened it, as I knew she would, but she said it was beautiful and really appreciated it. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your creation, it made our Christmas more special given the year we’ve had with Bens passing. 10/10

Please use this as feedback for the website.”

perfectly. I can’t wait to give this to my  father…
