I arranged for artist Tracey Miles to commission a painting of our pet dog Polly. Sadly Polly died but her memory and the joy she gave us lives with us daily in this unique and beautiful painting which Tracey has captured her full character in. – Iris Bovingdon, Herts.

To say that we are pleased with our special “double portrait” is a complete understatement, we are thrilled!
You have captured our facial images so accurately, and managed to show a friendly caring picture, of the love for our sailing memories and the story behind this.
May we also compliment you on the professional and reliable way that you processed our commission, keeping us informed step by step and ensuring that we were happy with each stage. At no time did we have any concerns about what we had asked of you, and what we now know you created so beautifully for us.
You are a highly talented artist and we hope that you will allow us to treat you as a friend.
Thank you again.
– Pat and Richard Palmer
Partial figure portrait in oils on canvas approx 90x70cm
It was absolutely Fab-u-lous having my portrait done by Tracey and all the family have loved it.
Six prints have already been distributed.
My face and hands are in brilliant detail and I remind myself of a gambler in a pre-war Havana Cafe!
It’s no gamble however having it done by Tracey.
So for super detailed portraits she is your girl.

Tracey Miles is a talented artist specialising in life drawing and portraiture.
I found it an interesting experience to sit for Tracey, during the sessions we would spend time getting to know a little about each other’s lives and background, consequently she was able to use some of my “stories” in the finished portrait.
While she is working on the portraits she likes to incorporate her knowledge of the sitter to make a story in the painting, thereby creating something that can be treasured for a long time.
Tracey draws and paints what she sees and achieves a great likeness.

I arranged to sit for a pencil portrait after I saw the the quality of Tracey’s work in a gallery.
The session was relaxed and very friendly.
I sat for twenty minutes and Tracey produced a beautiful, sensitive drawing which I am delighted with.
I am now arranging another sitting so she can draw my grandchild!

20 minute pencil sketch A4
When my very good friend Sue told me she was going to have a portrait of herself by a local talented artist, i asked if it would be possible to have one also.
Not knowing what I had let myself in for I watched Tracey at work drawing Sue, 20 minutes later, it was my turn, sitting still and not talking for 20 minutes was a challenge for me and being studied at quite close range was somewhat nerve wracking however it all passed off quite quickly and the result in my view was a wonderful experience with a picture I can hang on the wall.
Many thanks Tracey for an excellent portrait.

Tracey has such a talent for depicting your personality within her paintings.
She’s a true master at how she wields her medium & allows the emotion of the person to be revealed.1
She listened carefully & understood completely what I was after.
She put me at ease at all times & I would highly recommend having a portrait done by her.
A truly gifted artist & a wonderful woman!
Watercolour Family group portrait on Two rivers handmade paper approx A1
This family wanted their portrait to be based around Grant Wood’s painting American Gothic.
Dan runs Blue Pointer Boat hire which gave me a subject matter.
Among other subtleties I substituted their house, a trident for the pitchfork and gave their child a toy replica of his Dad’s boat riding on the waves of his comforter toy.
