"I wanted to give my husband a painting of our adored family home for a Silver Wedding Anniversary present and Stephen could not have been more helpful. After several discreet visits the result was a wonderful composition and a total surprise to my grateful husband. Stephen's service was of the highest quality from the initial planning stages, to finally choosing the best mount and frame."

"The picture is perfect. We had a great Christmas thanks to you. Peter was speechless when he saw the painting - he said it is the best thing ever given to him. Again thank you and happy new year."

"We have just received your stunning painting and are absolutely thrilled to pieces with it!!! It is absolutely perfect and more than we could have hoped for. You have captured the forms of Tom and Georgie brilliantly, and the snowy setting, leafless trees, and stormy skies have been beautifully worked. Thank you again for all the thought, skill and effort you put into this. We are simply over the moon and incredibly grateful to have found such a talented artist to do this piece. It will be truly cherished."

Dear Stephen, The picture is fabulous! My partner went to St Chad's many years ago and remembers it with great fondness. He was both surprised and delighted . Thank you for packaging it so well too.

"Dear Stephen, Thank you so much for organising and sending the picture. It arrived on Friday and is absolutely perfect. Even though I knew what was being sent, seeing it in real life was brilliant and beyond expectation. You have been so kind with your time, advice and getting in contact with the picture framer too. I really am very touched by the effort you put into this".
