Sue Clancy can be commissioned to create personalized portraits of pets, objects or places that tell a visual story of particular people.
When creating a commissioned pet portrait – the dog looks like the real-life dog and includes elements from the real-life dog-owner’s life; objects, activities, favorite colors etc. “I preserve a likeness that captures the personality and spirit of a beloved being.” says Clancy. “I also preserve aspects of the dog and human relationship creating a very personal visual story that merges the life of a person and their dog. My working method is the same for cats and very similar for objects and places.”
The pieces pictured below are commissions that already have homes – they are included here as examples of special commissions by Clancy – for more information or to commission a work of fine art please contact Caplan Art Designs www.caplanartdesigns.com or Joseph Gierek Fine Art www.gierek.com or the Aurora Gallery
