Mike has an amazing talent. He is brilliant. He drew me a portrait for my husbands 40th and wow it blew us both away. It brought us both to tears as it was perfect and the detail was fantastic. I will definatley been contacting Mike again in the future as he was professional and always kept me up to date with what he was doing.👍

Finding an artist who has the talent to draw someone, who has been loved dearly and lost, perfectly depicting every line, every wrinkle and the sparkle in your loved one’s eyes, is a challenging task. Mike has fulfilled our wish to perfection, depicting our loved one beautifully, and we can’t thank him enough! I will be using MCB portraits again in the future. You will not be disappointed. A portrait that leaves emotions running high is a portrait drawn with superb attention to detail and talent. Thank you, Mike!!!
An incredible portrait of our daughter, for which we are eternally grateful. Mike’s artwork is really quite special, and I would have no hesitation in recommending him. He kept regular contact with us too, whilst the portrait was being completed—first-class work accompanied by first-class customer service.
Second time of ordering. I bought a pencil drawing for my friends birthday, who lost her mum this year. Fantastic portrait and she was so pleased with the drawing of both of them. Thank you, Mike. Highly recommend.
I wanted something personal and different for my parents 50th wedding anniversary. I wanted 9 people all from individual photos to contact Mike directly, responded so quickly & was truly a great help; it was so easy to place my order. I couldn’t have been happier; the drawing was amazing and so accurate to the photos. More importantly, my parents loved it.
Had a portrait of my late dog, it was absolutely amazing, the only way to describe is like a black and white photo! Looks so realistic. Thank you so much again.

I ordered a double portrait of my two dogs as a gift for Xmas for my wife. She (and I) loved it; the dogs’ characters were absolutely captured. The detail is incredible. I would highly recommend MCB, not only for the quality but also for exceptional value for money.

Amazing work…I am so happy with the portrait of Sophia Loren. It was for a 50th birthday present. The portrait its self is exactly like the photo… Mike is very talented, and I will definitely be asking him to do more work for me in the future and recommending his work to my clients. Thank you, Mike!

Mike done a portrait of my Mother-in-law with one of her daughters and a dog that meant a great deal to both of them. It was a beautiful, Christmas present that was opened early and loved by all. The dog really got them how life like she was in it and will go down as one of my top 5 presents. If you want a present that’s different and remembered and loved then I totally recommend Mike, he’s a brilliant artist.
Elizabeth Sexton
Outstanding work! I asked Mike for my kitten portrait and given the short notice he managed to finish the work in time! I will definitely ask him for future collaboration as the quality of work and the price he asked is a no brainer! Thank you Mike!

I had quite a tight deadline for my sister’s birthday and Mike really did pull out all the stops to get it done in time, without compromising any of the quality. My sister was blown away. Would highly recommend.
Claire Bedwell
Mike produced a pencil drawing of our 12 year old springer spaniel, Lotte whom sadly we lost this year. The drawing was absolutely fabulous, captured the image and personality of our springer and bought a tear to our eye when we saw the finished version. Excellent communications all the way too and smooth easy process with an unbelievable ending.
Shaun Gregory

My husband and I made a portrait of his dad (who passed away last year) as a gift for his mum. She absolutely loved it. It’s very well made and beautiful. Very very realistic. We are extremely happy with it. Definitely will ask Mike again if we need another portrait done.
Urszula Bhatia
I found Mike on Google while looking for an artist to do a portrait for my mother-in-laws 70th, of her springer spaniel. My husband and I were very impressed with the quality of his work and were even more delighted when we received the picture – it was so life-like. My mother-in-law was also blown away and loved the picture. I also got Mike to do a picture of an engagement photo of my husband and I, it needed a bit of tweaking before I was satisfied – which is why it’s good to view beforehand – but Mike was very happy to adjust it until I was happy. The picture now has pride of place in our house and looks fantastic! I have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone.
Natalie Liecester
I found Michael through google after my partners father died and I wanted to have a collage made of his portrait and the things that he loved in his life, together with a skyline of the town sketched along the bottom….. I provided photographs and a rough layout to him and he quoted a price and a delivery time. Mike has delivered on time and exactly as I wanted – in fact his drawing exceeded my expectation – copy below and despite needing more work he only charged his original quoted price…… I paid him extra against his protests! The quality of Mike’s work is astounding – I am happy to forward a copy of what he did for me or indeed to be contacted if necessary – through Mike ……. I will be using Mike again! Steve G

Nicolas Bagnall
The pencil portrait Mike commissioned for me was amazing. The detail that he was able to go into was incredible, he managed to capture my pets personality so well even down to the twinkle in her eye. I would definitely recommend Mike to anyone looking to get a portrait commissioned. Thank you again, Mike.
Victoria Thomas
I asked Mike to provide a drawing of my sons. From the photo’s I sent, Mike produced an amazing quality pencil drawing and delivered it as agreed prior to Christmas. The whole process was very easy. The images are incredible and almost appear to be photo-like standard although the pencil drawing gives the work a softer quality. Thanks Mike.
Martin Clerk
I ordered a pencil portrait of my girlfriends dog and what I received was absolutely amazing! The drawing was an accurate reflection of the photo but also instilled a sense of artistic flair when viewing it. It took about 5-6 weeks for Mike to draw the portrait and the timeline was agreed in advanced so that it would be received before the Christmas holidays. Mike was responsive during the wait period and upfront on what needed to be provided, paid and agreed for. Definitely recommend if you wish to have a memory hand-drawn, it was well-worth the money and the best surprise I could give the girlfriend (besides a real dog).
S J

Johanna Lucas
I commissioned a framed portrait to present to a colleague as a farewell gift on behalf of 158 Provost Company Royal Military Police. Having received the portrait, we were genuinely amazed at the accuracy of the image. He truly managed to capture it perfectly. Utterly professional, Mike was in contact with us throughout the process and delivered exactly on time, despite the tight deadline requested by us. MCB Portraits cannot come more highly recommended.
