Like Peggerty, this image is based on an actual portrait of our own Berkley Bear, the West Highland Terrier that has, for the last fifteen years, played such a major part in our lives. You can see the actual painting in my portraits brochure link

People who know me through my work often assume that I have Labs at home. Not an unreasonable assumption I suppose. When they discover the truth it usually comes as a surprise. It is difficult to quantify what this little fellow has come to mean to us, and at fifteen years old, we are all acutely aware that he will not be around forever. He has proved to be, despite his size, one of the biggest dogs I have ever known and, although when we first had him I was not particularly fond of little dogs (he was acquired for and has always been Sue's) In no time at all, he had fundamentally changed my opinion.

I cannot expect anyone to feel the same way about him as we do, but I hope you like my rendition of him
