I learned about Apple Rain Dog Art through my Facebook page, as I own Bedlington Terriers and discovered the most... beautiful sculptures of this incredible breed. I was looking for a special gift for the breeders bringing a puppy from Italy to the US for me to thank them and couldn’t have picked a more perfect choice. Not only did I get a custom piece of art, the artist also included a Bedlington card she made with my comments inside.

You don’t have to be a dog lover to enjoy these beautiful works of art!

Discovered Apple Rain Art a few years ago. Was attracted by her amazing canine sculptures. When she branched into... Bedlington Terriers, I fell in love as I have one. I obtained a number of her Bedlington Terriers in various poses and mediums, from an original watercolour/ink/gouache, to sculptures in Raku finish and conventional finish. They are beautiful and much admired. Each piece is unique. Barbara is a pleasure to work with. Her pieces arrive safely, being expertly packaged to fully protect her art.
I highly recommend Apple Rain Art

I contacted Barbara to help make the passing of a close friend's beloved dog less heartbreaking. She was absolutely... wonderful to work with and took such phenomenally great care in crafting a custom piece--right down to his little patches of gray hair. I cannot recommend her more.read more

I recently received my sculpture from Apple Rain Dog Art, it is beautiful! The whole experience was wonderful. I live... in the USA and was a little scared of ordering off Facebook. I will definitely be making more purchases from Miss Apple Rain. If you are looking for quality and uniqueness I suggest you give her a chance! God Bless !read more

I emailed Barbara Apple Rain two photographs of my Dandie Dinmont Terriers, one of whom (Lucy) had just passed to the... Rainbow Bridge. From these 2 photos a wonderful picture was painted with Lucy in the foreground and her friend (Tolly) running towards her. It is a happy, contemporary painting which captures the both the likeness and, most especially, the soul of these 2 lifelong companions. The painting now has pride of place in my lounge and is a fitting memorial to a dog with a beautiful soul who was much loved.

I cannot recommend this talented artist too highly and I will most certainly be commissioning other works. What is amazing about this painting is that the artist had never met my dogs.

Barbara is an amazing person, and a very talented artist. I recently contacted her to commission a piece to have as a... lifelong remembrance of my oldest Giant Schnauzer, Zeus. In the 8 weeks it took to complete, my precious boy let me know he was tired, and needed me to help him cross the Rainbow Bridge. Little did I know, the day he crossed is the day his sculpture left Italy. It arrived 3 days later, in pristine condition. I couldn’t be more proud of it, and will cherish it always. Thank you again Barbara, so very much.read more

All I can say is WOW!!!
Barbara has outstanding talent and her quality of work is highly rated by many Dog... enthusiasts.
To be able to watch your piece of clay be formed into a masterpiece is so special and it makes it feel very personal.
Barbara is very easy to speak with and understand what you want. She is able to put her talent to design what we think could be impossible but she does it 🤗😍💗👌
The money transfer goes smoothly and quickly. The postage to Australia was exactly 1 week. Super fast.
Arriving in perfect order and extremely well wrapped not to break.

I learned of Apple Rain Dog Art from a post on face book when someone posted a video of two Sealyham Terrier... sculptures. It was love at first sight. I had to have one! I immediately contacted her and had a wonderful conversation. She agreed to sell me the larger of the two on the video. Payment over PayPal, and she shipped it and it was in my home in Texas in less than a week from when I first saw it on facebook. It's beautiful and I love it. My experience couldn't have been friendlier or more professional.read more
