''I sent a photograph to Stephen and the portrait he produced was stunning.  I would definitely recommend him to anyone wanting a faithful reproduction of a loved one.'' Wendy, Rossendale


''A really good likeness and expertly taken from the photograph we sent. I'd recommend you to anyone seeking to have a portrait done. Many thanks.'' Peter, Bath


''It's an amazing likeness and I'd recommend you to anyone - they won't be disappointed.'' David, Clitheroe


''I heard about Stephen via a friend who had a beautiful portrait of her baby which Stephen had produced and she loved. When my baby was born, my favourite photograph of him was taken on a phone. I discovered the quality wasn't good enough to take a large print so I asked Stephen to sketch it in pencil. I am absolutely delighted with the result. Stephen manages to capture the essence of those people that he draws. The results are breathtaking and far exceeded my expectations. I commissioned Stephen to draw a picture of my twins, and I will be coming back for more. He is a very talented and courteous man. Dealing with him is a pleasure. In future I will be looking to give these as gifts, they really are so lovely.'' Mel, Cheshire


''Thank you so much for the portrait of Patrick, it is fantastic and a really lovely momento for us - it looks exactely like him on the day he was born!! I wish you all the success with your venture'' Annemarie and Paul, Wigan


''Hi Stephen, the portrait has arrived and it is fantastic, I love it! Ciara is also very very impressed and keeps looking at it. She wants it in her bedroom! Thanks again and there will be more requests coming your way.'' Trish, Manchester


''I found this website whilst looking for personalised portraits at a reasonable price. In the past I have had a bad experience with a very poor artist so I am so glad to have found someone I can trust to do a good job. The artist produced this picture of my cat from a photograph. It was sent to me for approval and on the wall within a week. When I saw the finished sketch I was amazed at the detail. She is a long haired cat and I wasn't expecting it to portray the detail that it has, even her whiskers are perfect! Most of all, I was struck by the fact that her personality shines through. I half expect to see her move it is so realistic. I will be asking the Artist to sketch my other animals as I am delighted with the service, the cost and the results. I love art and have a critical eye. There are many lesser artists out there, I would not hesitate to recommend this one to a friend, or to employ his services again.'' Nigel, Manchester
