Personal project

Buster & Ivy.

cat memorial in situ.jpg

The example shown here is a personal project, a memorial to our own two cats. Buster and Ivy are greatly missed and I tried to incorporate as many elements as possible to reflect their personalities and events in their lives. There is a key below which explains some of the themes.

Please use the contact form to enquire about a pet memorial.

To create something accurate and appropriate I would need good quality photographs and a chat about the animal's character, preferences and life adventures.
