Maine Coone Cat
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 from which to work.
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.
Whether my pet dog, angels, landscape, a lady on a garden seat or, many years ago, a red squirrel, Mavis Nwokobia has captured all in a realistic way.
Having been to some of her exhibitions and bought ‘off the peg’ each purchase is unique and continues to bring much pleasure. Her feel for colour is enhanced by her true depiction of nature and appreciation of visiting other countries and cultures.
Very Special Indeed
We have a number of Mavis Nwokobia’s artworks. Each one is unique and beautifully executed, always attracting admiring comments from visitors.
Our most recent picture is of our daughter and her friend on holiday. In it, Mavis perfectly captures the light, shadows and ambiance of the moment, somehow much more than a photograph could, making it very special indeed and a perfect way for us to remember the place and time.
