“Every time I look at the painting my heart soars…..and the reaction of every single person who comes into the house is extraordinary. True friends and family just smile at how brilliantly the painting captures our relationship to and with each other, more than anything this is what makes me truly happy. We loved meeting and having Stephen around, which makes the memory of the painting even better still.”



“This was such a personal experience that at first I felt quite self-conscious about having my portrait done, I needn’t have been though as Stephen is not only an excellent artist but he is so lovely & personable that he makes you feel totally at ease. We have taken our time to discuss exactly what I wanted from the portrait & the whole experience has been amazing. I was speechless when I saw it for the first time & it made me a little tearful if I’m honest as it was beyond anything I could have hoped for. Stephen captured everything in my portrait – the look on my face, the ambience & there is so much depth to the picture that I can’t stop looking at it! Thank you Stephen, I love my beautiful painting.”



“The painting continues to win gasps of admiration as people see it for the first time….”

“When we commissioned Stephen for a portrait of our children we had an idea of what we wanted. Stephen visited us, took photographs and discussed in meticulous detail the process of preparing and completing the painting. What followed over the next few months was a wonderful and most memorable journey as we met regularly and saw the portrayal of our children come to life resulting in an outstanding piece of work that has been greatly admired by all who have seen it. We could not be any happier with Stephen’s work as we not only have something to treasure but also have an incredible experience to remember.”



“Having never had my portrait painted before I was unsure of what to expect. Stephen has a knack of making you feel comfortable as a sitter and this shows through in the final painting. Stephen listened to what i wanted from my portrait and was able to make positive suggestions as to how to achieve this. As a result, my husband and I are absolutely delighted with the final result which now has pride of place in our home.”



“I am enchanted by my painting, the more I look at it, the more I love it.”
