Cassie Thring the Artist paints Hugo the dog

The most exciting part of my Christmas this year was waiting to see my parents reaction to our (my and my sibling's) best kept Christmas secret, the unveiling of Hugo......the portrait (and our present) of their much loved, very spoilt and very large dog.

To be able to commission Cassie one of South Australia's most talented and exhibited artists to capture Hugo on canvas was one of the most exciting elements of the surprise.  I am a huge admirer of her incredible talent and creativity.  She is not only an immensely gifted artist but is also one of the warmest and wittiest people I know.  An all round great girl.

No need to go into detail on their reaction, but it couldn't have been a happier one.  Cassie has captured Hugo to a 'tee',  the special 'Hugo' expression with his soft caring eyes that we know so well absolutely shines from the canvas.

Cassie works from her studio in the Adelaide Hills, where she sculpts with clay, and works with ceramics and paint.

Visit her website here, get a glimpse of some of her unique work in both sculpture and painting, and see why she is in such high demand  as an artist.

For me personally it is her distinctive sense of style and humour that emanates from her work and draws me to it.
