Portrait of Mistress Eva

The pose for this portrait of Hong Kong and Singapore based Mistress Eva is based on a Chinese Buddhist statue of Guanyin, representing divine compassion.

On a throne supported by loyal slaves and edged by protective slaves to the side, she plays with the hair of her loyal slave-girl who offers her refreshment from a tray.
From a primordial darkness two ghostly admirers float up to adore her feet, while more obscure forms begin to drift upwards attracted by her.
Others float towards her from above warmed by the bright radiance of her aura.

A portrait with this surreal setting gives her the mythic quality she embodies to her slaves and is something a photograph could never capture.

Portrait of Miss Samara

Adept of the whip and cane, Dublin-based Miss Samara told me on commissioning this painting:-
” It is a very special memory, one of the first more extreme sessions I had with my submissive. He has very fond memories of it as well. It was a step forward in our D/s relationship and I wanted to capture that in something special. “

Note the kiss mark!

A personal shrine

This personal shrine was an unusual and delightfully original commission.
The Lady M approached me asking for a set of drawings she could give to her beloved submissive as a birthday present.
After some discussion revolving around miniatures the idea of a medieval foldable triptych was considered.
It would be carried by her submissive whenever he was not near her – on holiday or on business, so it could always remind him of her, unfolded on a table or closet and knelt before it to adore her image – in effect a personal shrine.
In the centre panel Lady M, dressed in a medieval gown, looks out sternly at the viewer.
(for privacy I have added a digitally painted Venetian carnival mask to her face)
Behind her a medieval skyline and two nightingales perched on a bush sing merrily beside rose bushes from which long thorny stems grow through into the outer panels. On one side hangs a key, on the other a lock.
In the narrower panels her submissive is shown kneeling in a cell dressed in penitential robes reading from a book of devotional prayers, while in the other he is dressed in his female persona with wig and made-up, adoring his lady’s shoe.
The crystal ball and hourglass beside tell us that he is neither separated by time nor space from his mistress.
The frame had to be specially constructed to hold the three paintings.
This takes adoration to a new level. A totally unique work of art which only has meaning and value for the owners.
Many mistresses own a brand-name pair of shoes as a gift – how many can boast of a bespoke artwork, or even a shrine?

Portrait of Lady Salome

Lady Salome, a mistress from Germany, wished for a fantasy-based theme and taking her name as a starting-off point we thought of a head on a silver platter, though that seemed a little gruesome. A skull with tongue licking her feet seemed a better idea. She wears a rather fetishy medieval dress and carries a sword (perhaps of justice?) Behind her a traditional German castle and a small reference to the other Biblical Salome of a crucifix on the railings. In addition to the classic watercolour treatment a very thin layer of red ink was added to the hair and tongue of the skull.

Mistress Tess in Furs

As you will have seen in the dedicated page to Venus in Furs , the book is a great favourite of Mistress Tess and this watercolour was intended to be in the style of those paintings – the classic monochrome style which gives such a sense of cool mystery and eroticism.
She specified a cuckolding scene where she would be lying on a silk bed beside her well-endowed black lover, while her Louboutin heels are worshipped by a lowly well-whipped submissive, the commissioner of the painting. Obviously she hardly needs to hold the leash connected to his collar.
On the bed you can also see Mistress Tess’ favourite pink whip produced by Essentia Whips.

This and previous drawings are now on display at the new chambers of Mistress Tess – the Alchemy Rooms.

The Weimar Series

This recent series – made for Japanese magazine “Goddess love” (女神の愛) takes the theme of a drinking-club in 1920’s Germany, at the time of the Weimar Republic, where the main female characters are played by world-famous mistresses. I wanted to show a decadent and raffish atmosphere, but add a sense of nostalgia for a past period of modern history.
This is a club run by females for females, but also for subservient men so long as they are well behaved and paying :- if not, a strict management policy is enforced!


1. In the first scene Domina Liza, dressed in an opulent fur coat, is shown pointing to the illuminated entrance of the club. Her besotted and extremely wealthy slave will be required to take her inside for an exorbitantly expensive evening.


2. Now we see Lady Lola, playfully teasing a waiter who is dressed in a pretty waitress outfit. Her touch is obviously upsetting him so much he is likely to spill his tray at any moment.


3. The scene moves outwards to Mrs Weltsova who is sitting on a stool, sipping her cocktail, her feet being worshipped by an obviously drunk customer who is behaving very indecently .


4. Over comes Princess Aurora in her military-style costume and ejects him swiftly from the premises with a well-directed kick from polished boots. No rowdiness in this club!

In the tradition of these series it moves à la ronde back to the first image where the disgraced customer finds himself  collapsed in a heap and half-conscious beside the entrance.

If you live in Japan you can buy the present issue -No 15 – from Amazon.
Regrettably the magazine cannot be bought overseas.

Portrait of Mistress Liberty

A simple theme :- wrapped warmly in a beautiful white fur coat, Mistress Liberty takes her rubber-encased slave for a walk in the early morning, down through the snow-covered gardens of her palatial estate.
