Elyse commissioned this portrait of her two pet chickens after Matilda (black) has sadly passed away at age 10.

I received a few photos as reference but it was difficult to place them together due to the very different angels at which the photos were taken. After sending Elyse two different placement mock-ups with varying backgrounds, this is the one Elyse chose for her portrait.


Margaret and Matilda were framed with an Australian made, timber moulding, double matboards, silver name plaque and ClearVue clarity glass.

Framed Size: 49 x 58cm :: 19″ x  23″

Client Feedback

Hi Susanna,
The portrait is the most beautiful thing ever. You have captured the girls amazingly and it brought a tear to my eye. You have captured both of the girls’ essences. I simply cannot thank you enough for this amazing piece. Your work is just wonderful and you can feel how much heart goes into it. Matilda may be gone, but I still get to wake up to her gorgeous face every morning and it’s all thanks to you. So beautiful and heartfelt. I can’t even express in words how much I love it. Thank you to infinity and beyond.
Much love,
Altona – VIC
