In the Fall of 2010, I wrote a blog post titled: Wanted: Victorian Dog Portrait Artist and in the Summer of 2012 a young art student in the UK, just finishing University, found my post and emailed me one of his recent works of an amazingly detailed dressed up koala bear and I was in love. His artisitic style was exaclty what I was looking for in a custom Victorian art dog portrait.

His name was Luke Jervis and I think he is talented beyond belief!

I simply emailed Luke photos of my dogs, Bebop and LeRoy, he worked on a few mock-ups & sent me his ideas, then got to work and a few months later, a brown paper package tied up in strings {literally} arrived on my doorstep and within were my two boys captured in time and presented in two fabulously ornate gold frames. { Click here to see closeups and the dogs side by side their portraits }

They originally hung in the game room/den of our old house…

In our new house, they are hanging vertically in our long slanted hallway and every time I walk by I either stop to look at them or smile as I pass by. Now that LeRoy is gone, they have even more meaning and you better believe that Luke will be working on a few portraits of the new puppies as well ! {when they’ve matured a little bit, of course}

I’m so honored that Bebop and LeRoy were Luke’s first portraits, but since then he has done nearly 50 more! You can see a few of them below… NOTE: he works with you to decide what kind of attire you’d like your regal pet to be wearing… I love how he really captures each pet’s personality.

    Beautiful detail work, he is truly talented! I have always loved the pics of LeRoy and BeBop, and I would love to own a print for myself of our beloved Springer Spaniel Brandy. 🙂

    I also would love a pug with pipe print! 🙂
