Honouring The Memories
Of  Your Loved Ones
in a Timeless & Unique Way

 There is The Whispers of Ashes
Translating the love & memories of the beloved... from the beloved to the canvas

                          The process of Grief can be unexplainable, leaving you empty and lost. 

A loved one or family pet can hold such a profound impression, moments in time - no matter how short or long &  help us create memories that shall carry us through till it is our time to transition.


My passion is to create unique & meaningful art that honors the memory of your beloved.

               A Portrait Painting with a small amount of the ashes will hold a piece of them. Within the layers of the Paint & Ashes lies the pages of their life stories. A force that can shape & reshape the world around us.

Drawing on the threads of their unique experiences & kindled by the flames of empathy, I create the power to help you weave tales of transformation & kindle hope in the hearts of all who come in contact with The Whispers In Ashes Portrait.

                  With comfort & solace it can reach out to you ... hold you ... that you can talk to & lower the lonely anxiety levels... For it is within these tales that we can sow the seeds of change, crafting a world that is bright &  beautiful. 

                   I take great care in creating one of a kind Portrait Art that captures

           the essence of your loved one & I look forward to helping you preserve

                                       the memory of those closest to you & celebrate their life.


                                                                                 Testimonial :

                                                                        Thank you for the portrait of Bob. You captured his personality.

                                                                        Having his smiling face in my visual world has lifted the loneliness I felt

                                                                        since his passing. I am reminded of the joy and laughter we shared & go                                                                            forward in my life with a smile again. I would recommend you to any

                                                                        person asking about a portrait as this is one of the kindest purchases I

                                                                        have ever made for myself.

                                                                     There are really no words to express the feelings since I received my painting.
