We have a very special little person in our lives who owes her life to the wonderful care she has received from birth and frequently since at Edinburgh Children's Hospital. It is much more than just a hospital, it is a community that supports the children while helping them get better.
By raising funds, I hope to contribute towards some of the things that make a hospital more bearable for children who are away from home and feeling unwell and scared, particularly over Xmas. It would make me very happy if we could send some festive cheer their way.
I am not a commercial artist and am only able to do this over the festive period when life is a bit more quiet. It takes me up to 10 hours to draw one pet portrait so I hope that you feel reasonably generous. Depending on your own circumstances, I would hope to see minimum donations of £20 going up to £50 for those who can afford it, which is more akin to commercial rates. In return you will receive the original unframed colour pencil drawn portrait (roughly A4 size) of your beloved pet. Your donation will not only give you an original artwork but you will know that you may also have made a scared and unwell wee child a bit happier. So please give generously.
