There is such a nuance in being able to identify an animals’ character and transfer it to her artwork, I am truly spellbound when I look at her work. I highly recommend Alice for any of your future commissions.

My husband commissioned Alice for a colour portrait of my horse Charlie who sadly passed away. Alice has captured the very soul of this beautiful boy in her work. His soft gentle eye and his quiet patient, trusting and contented countenance have been captured, in time, for ever more. Alice has managed in her work to feel and portray the special bond that I had with my sensitive horse. Every time I am drawn to look at his portrait, I can literally feel his velvety softness and warmth and get lost looking into his gentle eye. I can see into my special boys soul .......Thank you Alice for my “Charles Brown”

Carrie is looking amazing! I love seeing your progress. It has been a really wonderful experience to see it. It’s like you are helping immortalize her in another form. She is coming to life on paper

Alexandra Chambers California USA

Thank you so much for the wonderful portrait of our dog Beans. When we opened your package, my husband said, “That looks more like Beans than Beans!” Seriously though, it is perfect. And it is so nice of you to mat it and wrap it so beautifully. It arrived in spotless condition. We love it, and can’t believe you did it from only a photo!

Alice Murphy’s ability to capture an animal’s spirit in her art is truly a gift beyond measure. I have now commissioned 3 pieces and feel that each portrait expresses that animal’s unique personality as if Alice knew them personally. I feel blessed to have come across your work and look forward to future portraits.

Hi Alice,

I am Backdraft's partner! Sydney gave me his portrait today. I wanted to tell you how much it meant to me. You really did a great job capturing his image and what you wrote about him was spot on! He was one of a kind, a best friend. I am truly grateful to you and to Sydney for this amazing work of art. I will treasure it.

Sincerely, Casey.

Alice Murphy is a true artist. She did a very challenging portrait of my son jumping his horse and it came out spectacularly. she was easy to work with, creative and clearly loves what she does. She asked for my input at times to make sure she gave me exactly what I wanted. My son was stunned by this incredible surprise for his 30th birthday. Thank you so much Alice!

Beth Cannon Florida USA

My beloved service pup, Rowan, passed away unexpectedly last summer. When I saw Alice's Facebook ad for her portrait paintings, I was intrigued. I commissioned Alice to  capture Rowan's soft, yet majestic self. When I received the finished portrait, and summary of his reading, I was in love. Alice connected with Rowan's soul, and he connected with her. I never thought I could get such an accurate portrait of my boy, and to know he's watching over me has helped me immensely.  I am now going to ask Alice to do the same for my son who has passed away. I can't thank Alice enough for this precious gift.
