Cat Portrait

In July 2017 we asked Mavis to create a painting of our beloved Maine Coon cat, who had sadly passed away. We provided two photographs:

When Mavis handed over her work, we were overcome with emotion. The painting has magically captured the essence his personality – in a way that a photograph never could.

Thank you Mavis – you are so talented!

A Gifted Artist

The first piece of work I commissioned from Mavis Nwokobia was a cartoon of penguins depicting each of my interests, so detailed and yet not fussy. Various mediums used , a 3D piece that I continue to enjoy as it still feels new.

Having followed this artist for many years my latest commission was a wonderful oil painting, lights reflecting on water and a path and scene that I can get lost in , feeling as though I am genuinely enjoying the freedom of that walk but a calmness evoked by a subtle use of colour and texture.

Having bought artwork from¬† various parts of the world it is this artist that I am ‘drawn’ back to each time for any new commission. Her work truly represents my ideas whether scenery, cartoon or my pets. A gifted artist.
