Oh Sam! I cannot thank you enough for our painting. I can't take my eyes off it. I didn't even want to go out to dinner tonight because I wanted to stay home and look at it. I am so grateful for your patience with me as I changed my mind so many times, and also that you have captured Luke and I both so perfectly. I am so glad we found you, our painting will be something i'm sure our children will fight over one day. Until next time, thank YOU!!!

Sam thank you for my lovely paintings which arrived yesterday. I have never commissioned a work before so was slightly apprehensive about the whole process. I needn't have worried you were so organized and knew exactly the right questions to ask me.  The whole process went very smoothly and I am very happy with the result. Thanks for all your help and enthusiasm. I look forward to actually meeting you one day!

Hi Sam,
Thank you so much for giving your wonderful talent to the gorgeous painting of the kids. It was a real joy to unpack and is already hanging in its place of pride.
We love your work and hope to add another piece of your talent to our home in the future.
Thanks again.

Sam painted a portrait of my daughter from a photograph and captured her likeness very well.

The portrait is often commented on by visitors to our house and it has become a treasured possession. The process was seamless and Sam was excellent at communicating her progress and providing photos of the portrait to accommodate any changes.

Dear Sam,

Thank you for such an excellent experience, I have admired your work for some time and I was pretty confident that you could create a little magic from my very vague brief.

I already knew I loved your work, but I've never commissioned a piece before and I was definitely nervous about the outcome. Thanks for encouraging feedback at every stage and making the whole process so enjoyable. 

I now have a beautiful forever piece from my family to remind me of my 40th.

Now for the matching pieces.
