Outstanding in Detail

I asked for a portrait of our family dog, Hamish, as a 50th wedding anniversary gift for my parents. The best photo I could provide was from my cell phone, and the resulting portrait is outstanding in detail. An incredibly skilled artist with the ability to recreate not only the image but also the character.

Beautiful Collage

I wanted to gift a special gift to a very special friend and Mike made the most beautiful collage from a few very photos that I had which were downloaded from the net. The quality of the photos was very poor and not an easy task which Mike accomplished beautifully. Thank you so much, Mike.

Short Notice

Contacted Mike on short notice to draw 2 children, When Mike sent me the picture on completion I was speechless and blown away it was better than I expected. Everyone who has seen it since has commented and thought it was an actual photograph until told it was a drawing. I would highly recommend him.

Wonderful Pencil Portrait

You did a wonderful pencil portrait for me in November, of my son’s black Labrador, which I gave as a Christmas present to him and his partner, Alice. I just thought I would let you know that they were thrilled with it. In fact, Alice was reduced to tears!!- Happy tears, of course! It now.

Birthday Gift

My portrait was a birthday gift for my friend of her and her father who had passed away, so the quality was very important to me. I couldn’t provide the best quality photograph so was unsure how the portrait would turn out, I was pleasantly surprised, and my friend loved it.

Picture is Beautiful

The picture is beautiful – going all the way to South Africa as it is my dad’s cat there. We’re giving it to him for Christmas and will pass on his comments after that – I’m sure he will be thrilled. It has real-life and feeling to it. Thanks for your great service.

Loved the picture and could not stop looking at it. Thank you so much for your help in making their anniversary a special one.

Quality of the Pencil Portrait

Many thanks for the portrait – it arrived in time for my partner’s party and given the short notice I was very impressed with the time in which you turned it around. It was really quick to place the order and pay online and most importantly we were really pleased with the quality of the pencil portrait.
Sharon – Nottingham

Excellent

You have truly caught the expression that Gomit used to have on her face when she wanted to play. (They say that dogs do not have facial expressions, but I disagree with that.) It is far better than I ever thought it would be! Excellent!
Sandy – Derby
