I commissioned Cy for a pet portrait of a dear friend’s Cleo. A rescue dog, Cleo has captured the hearts of all who know her and I knew that a portrait would be a gift cherished forever.
I send Cy two photographs of Cleo and he immediately set up a phone call with me to discuss my vision for the piece. Cy was an absolute delight to work with. He kept me apprised of every step in the process. When the art arrived, it was carefully packaged with clear instructions for opening so as to not damage the piece. The portrait was simply stunning. It captured Cleo’s loving personality and upon presentation to my friend, brought tears to her eyes. I recommend Cy without hesitation. He is a truly gifted artist and also a genuine lover of all animals.

“I worked from home today so I wouldn’t miss the delivery of Whimsey’s portrait. I had no idea. I loved the photo of the Portrait, but had absolutely no idea of what it would look like in person so to speak. My God, Cy, it looks exactly like my darling basking in the sun and it is in three dimensions! I can count the number of eye lashes as well as the number of whiskers. How can I thank you? I would have been happy to pay you twice what you charged me to have my boy given back to me like this! I feel like I could just reach out and touch him and he’d begin to purr. I swear that Whimsey must have sitting on your shoulder when you painted this. My baby has finally come home!
THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!!”

“I can’t tell you how much we appreciate and love the portrait. It’s like you’ve given Izzie back to us. Not to diminish our love for Belle – the portrait is just so special of both of them. We kept saying after you left how gifted you are and how impressed we are that you captured each dog’s personality and expressions so perfectly. Thank you thank you!”

“ I could hardly believe my eyes when I saw Max and Willie together again! It’s one thing to see any of Cy’s beautiful pet paintings, charcoals, drawings, etc. You see a beautiful animal, admire it, and really admire his artistic abilities, his attention to detail, and the realism. It’s a whole different and more amazing thing when you see your OWN pet and realize that Cy has captured the personality, the quirks, the facial expressions and just all the things that make your special dog or cat or horse unique. And, especially when you’ve lost one, as we lost Max, Willie’s brother, it really makes it special.”
