This charming painting captures the energy and appeal of a dog with personality. 


The hopeful spaniel, gazing up, presumably at its human companion, is just bursting with optimism and enthusiasm.  With bright, eager eyes and, we imagine, a constantly wagging tail, he exudes a cheerful spirit and eagerly anticipates good things to come.


Denise says: "Such a hopeful nature can only be infectious, lifting the spirit and embodying a sense of joy and positivity that’s bound to bring a smile to anyone's face."



    Denise is a Worcestershire-based artist who shares a studio with another of our artists, Wendi Weller, and who has become respected for her animal portraiture. Her new, larger portrait pieces are showing exclusively with us this winter and move her work on, both in scale and narrative.


    "My passion as a portrait artist lies in the intricate dance between capturing a person's outer likeness and revealing their inner essence. Through each stroke of my brush or pencil, I aim to unveil the stories, emotions and unique character that make each individual a work of art in their own right.


    "Portraiture, for me, is a deeply personal and profound exploration of human connection. It's not merely about creating a likeness; it's about delving into the soul of the subject and conveying their humanity on canvas or paper.


    "Every face tells a story - and I'm committed to telling those    stories with empathy, sensitivity, and authenticity.


    "In my work, I embrace a blend of classical and contemporary techniques. Whether it's a detailed, realistic portrayal or a more interpretive and abstract representation, my goal is to elicit a sense of recognition and emotional resonance in the viewer.


    "Through the medium of portraiture, I hope to foster a deeper understanding of the human experience, celebrating our diversity, vulnerabilities, and strengths. Each portrait is an opportunity to explore the intricacies of identity and the shared bonds that connect us all."
