Some Recent Testimonials

Alice Bowring 
Geraldine was an absolute pleasure to purchase from, and her artistry is magnificent. I couldn't be more pleased with the outcome!

Dan Townend 
I cannot recommend Geraldine highly enough. I had a portrait of our cockapoo Scooby commissioned for my wife's birthday. Geraldine's painting caught his spirit perfectly... it was so good it made my wife cry! If you have a beloved pet, get a portrait. you will love it.

Words cannot describe how over the moon I am with the custom portrait that Geraldine did. I commissioned a portrait for two friends who recently said goodbye to their pup and Geraldine captured the image and the spirit of Jez and did so in beautiful detail. My friends received the portrait just today and they were so touched. Aside from the actual artwork, Geraldine was easy to communicate with, helpful, and so friendly. She rushed the portrait for me and sent it safely and securely. I would highly recommend her!

Bought my parents a portrait of our beautiful boy after he passed away. They were blown away with how incredible it is - my mum even said it made her feel like he was back with us. Great communication too! Cannot recommend highly enough.
