Custom Portrait

Two years ago, I had the privilege to customise a portrait for a lovely client from Japan for her wedding. Now two years later, she contacted me again. This time to commission a portrait for her parents for their 30th wedding anniversary gift. My extreme honour! Thank you SO much, Aoba, you have no idea how much your support and faith in my works mean to me.

They lost their beloved dog, Sakura last year and requested to have her drawn in the portrait.

I threw in a card for them and handwritten the message on behalf of my client. :)

She even sent me photos after they received the artwork (I got her permission to share the photos). So sweet!

Custom Family Portrait (New Adventure!)

For this piece, besides wanting her hubby & her to be holding an USA and Korea flag, client hoped to have the continent of North America and Asia to be incorporated into the artwork. I suggested a sunrise background to symbolize a new beginning for their upcoming adventure and also a pier since it was where they had their wedding shoot.

I want to take this opportunity to say a very big thank you to this very sweet lady @didel613. This was the 3rd time she engaged my service - each time she’d given me her full trust and the absolute freedom of expression, not to mention she’s always full of appreciation for my effort. Thank you also for the permission to share your lovely message (scroll down to see her message). This was just one of the many sweet notes she’d sent me!). My heart is full. I wish you and Taylor (hopefully your 3 doxies too!) the very best for your exciting journey ahead, Diane!

Custom Family Portrait/ Baby Announcement

Commissioned family portrait: Baby announcement with Disney/ Spring theme. This is another surprise gift order (so much love lately!) from a sweet husband to his beautiful wife who will be due in April. (Okay someone finds me a husband like that pls! Ha!). This has to be the most detailed piece I’d ever done thus far and I’m very happy with the result. I was told this morning that his wife received the art piece and was in happy tears. Knowing that clients love their order and appreciate my effort is the most rewarding thing for me. I’m not going to tag them in this post until they make the announcement themselves. I’m so excited for the arrival of their baby! Thank you again from the bottom of my heart. I love this piece so much too.

Client's note: ''I wanted to thank you again for creating such a wonderful gift, a keepsake that will be the centerpiece of our little girl's nursery. I gave the artwork to her last night and right when she unwrapped it she began to cry and said "You got me a Dollgift!?" She was awestruck and totally surprised. She said it captures so much. You can by all means share now! Thank you again.'' - Kevin (United States)

I hope Diane, Phoebes Mom will love it as much as I do...I think she will. I can’t honestly thank you enough for your willingness to do this, and your time and love you put into it.

Also thanks to the artist @dollgift You have perfectly captured her vibe. I am in awe of your talent. Thank you both, from the bottom of my heart.'' Waltersphoebe (United States)

Commissioned pet portrait 2: I waited to share this piece for a long time. It was meant to be a surprise; I wanted the recipient to see it first so as not to ruin their surprise. Custom orders such as this always make me happy knowing that someone cares alot to want to do something special for their loved one. And it was my absolute pleasure they entrusted me to help. For this particular piece, a group of friends decided to come together to comfort a friend - Michelle had lost her beloved dog recently. The best part is, I know some of them had only met through Instagram (one thing I love about social media!). I was touched beyond words by their sweet gesture. Thank you for letting me be a part of this. A special thanks to @didel613 for the correspondence and for making this happen. You guys are amazing. Thank you for letting me know you love the art piece and for the permission to share your photo as well, Michelle - I hope you find some comfort everytime you look at this drawing. Know that you and Peanut are very loved by many friends. @peanut_dachshund. 💜

Recipient's note: ''I got the most beautiful gift today from my amazing friends. I cannot thank y’all enough for coming together to make this gift possible I’ve been looking at this painting for hours you have no idea how much this mean to me. It’s perfect in every way you guys really put the biggest smile on my face today. A big thank you to the artists @dollgift for taking the time to make this for my family and I, You are so talented and I’m so blessed to have one your art pieces. Thank you again to me amazing instagram Family I don’t know what I would do without you! Peanut I hope you can see this beautiful painting from heaven and I hope you makes you happy. There is not a day that goes by that I don’t think about you but now when I see this picture I will smile and remember the memories we made that day.

Always In My Heart

It has been 3 years today since I lost a piece of my heart. Although it has been that long, it still feels like yesterday. Nono was diagnosed with mast cell tumor a week after my dad’s unexpected passing. Even with cancer cells showing all around his body, he was still his playful, goofy self. I thought, or was hoping he would eventually get better with western/chinese medications and a stricted diet. But that only lasted for 8 months. His condition took a turn for the worst overnight. Suddenly he was refusing food which was very unlikely of him. I hugged him close to sleep that night, praying that he would feel better the next day. When dawn came, he was unresponsive. Then he had a seizure in his unconscious state. I was feeling so scared and helpless all alone at home at that time. I remember running around the block with his lifeless body in my arms frantically trying to flag down a cab to get to the vet (for some reason, the cab I called didn’t show up). But no one would stop their car. I was crying and praying so hard for help. I was a wreck. My boy didn’t wake up since that day. As I gaze up at the sky each night, I think about our evening walks in the park. I miss his cheeky face. I miss holding him close in my arms again. I’m sorry, I wasn’t a great pawrent to you.. I wish I could have done so much more. I hope you knew you were loved till the very end. For now, I’ll just keep you close in my heart till we meet again.

Lost In Your Eyes

I did two colour variations and couldn’t decide which one I like more - both colours create a very different mood. Which do you prefer?

Night Is Falling

Meet me at midnight in the forest of my dreams. We’ll make a fire and count the stars that shimmer above the trees.~ Christy Ann Martine


Sometimes I get so obsessed with being perfect that I worry I won't be able to draw something better or as good as the one before. But now it's safe to say, I LOVE this piece! Okay, I cheated. I'd used the whale from my earlier work. Hehe. I hope you enjoy this too. 💜✨

One-Winged Angel

Sometimes I looked through my past works and wondered what inspired me to draw that or favour a certain style during that time. Other times, I have the urge to remove the 'uglier' works from my website but thought a better way would be to leave them as they are and create another version.

Interestingly, when I asked several friends to name their favourite work(s) of mine, ALL of them gave me different answers. Some of them felt a connection to a certain piece and others simply because they like the illustration/ style/ colour. I was actually quite surprised even my least favourite made it to the top of their list! From this experience, I learnt to appreciate all my works including those I find less desirable, because somewhere, somehow, there will be someone who like it. :)

Here's another re-work on my earlier piece titled, 'One-winged angel'. I was torn between keeping it in simple black & white or giving it a full colour since both will have a very different feel. Perhaps I'll try both! Ha.
