“I am writing to thank you very much for your professional and charming manner during the ‘sitting’.

You will be pleased to know that the painting has met with approval - the overall view of my colleagues is that the animal has been appropriately captured on canvas!”

I love the picture. You have a real talent for not merely getting the look of your subjects but also their character in your pictures. Thanks again for a great piece of work.”

Mr. C. Morrow


“I want to say what a great pleasure that lovely painting, “Spirit of Chichester” has given us and we all enjoy it. I look at it whenever I go into the boardroom, which is frequently. In my view it is everything a painting should be - beautiful, colourful and interesting - and it tells so many different stories. I think it is quite unique in that respect.

Mr Jack Bartholomew
