We asked Petra to create two wildlife pieces for us as mementos of our time in Far North Queensland. Petra listened patiently to my ideas. I requested life-size figures of two specific species of native butterfly from the region in their natural habitat.
I really didn’t have to say much as Petra intuitively understood my thoughts, making the whole commission very relaxed. I was able to trust her judgment completely. She updated me regularly on progress and arranged suitable framing as per my preference.
Both pieces, although intricate in appearance, have safely made it back to the UK – testimony enough to Petra’s skill in her craft. They now hang proudly in our living room. Visitors gravitate towards them and immediately comment on their uniqueness as 3D wildlife pieces and their changing dimensions as the natural light moves during the day. I’m often stopped in my tracks whenever they catch my eye and transported back the Australian Rainforest. We’re already thinking up our next commission for Petra!
Thank you Petra for our new piece of artwork for our new home. We had been searching for the perfect piece of art to add a pop of colour and character to our new family home. The amazing colours, technique and finished product are exactly what we have been looking for. Our new art is hanging proudly in our lounge room and many of our guests have commented on the uniqueness of it. We are so grateful for your ability to hear our thoughts, ideas and colour scheme and to be able to produce such a beautiful piece of art that suits is perfectly. Thanks again.
