" This portrait is more than I could ever ask for. Rodrigo was the most beautiful dog we've ever known. I love him so much, and now I can see him forever in this drawing." (Amy - Pet Portrait Coloured Pencil, '07)

"I must thank you for the 2 pet portraits of lurchers my husband commissioned for me. It was the best surprise he ever gave me." (Su - Coloured Pencil Pet Portraits 1 2 '07)

“This has been very therapeutic for me. Thank you for the sensitive way in which you have dealt with my request.” (Gloria - Commemorative Baby Portrait, ’08)

“Your picture has evoked so many emotions in me. You've given me the photo I never got the chance to take. You have also made Luke look so serene. I can see in your portrait how Luke would look today, if he had not been so ill and I could not ask for more.” (Jacqui - Commemorative Baby Portrait in Pencil, ’08)

“I took many hours searching the net to find someone who I thought could do this portrait. In fact I think you've exceeded the high expectations I had based on your website.” (Graham – Commemorative Portrait, Pencil, ’08)

“I received the portrait today and I’m over the moon, I’m going to give it to my sister and her husband today, I can’t wait to see their faces. I’ve put a little plaque engraved with the baby’s name at the bottom, it looks lovely!” (Rachael – Commemorative Baby Portrait, Coloured Pencil, ’08)

“Thanks once again for your great work. I know all of us lucky people who've had something done appreciate the portraits of friends, family and pets, but our link to the art isn’t the only thing that makes them so special - you have an amazing talent to capture the emotion of a moment, not just the details.” (Terry - Pencil Portrait '10)

"Thank you for your suggestions about which photo to use and what should be included in the portrait. Your portrait will certainly be the centerpiece of our collection." (Dave - Pet Portrait '10)

"It’s almost as if you can reach into the portrait and feel the texture of his skin. The only problem is waiting to give them the portraits. I feel like a kid waiting to open presents at Christmas!" (Terry - Children's Pencil Portraits 1 2 ’10)

"The portrait is better then I could of imagined!! I know it was a strange request but it's turned out so amazing! I cannot wait to see my mum's face! You've been a pleasure to talk to and so helpful. Every time I see this portrait I will laugh and smile. It's so Zola!" (Katrina - Character Pet Portrait '11)

"I cannot put into words how fantastic it is. You've captured my wife's sparkle perfectly. If you would like to use the portrait on your website I'd be honoured for others to see this masterpiece. This means more to me than you could know." (Lee - Commemorative Pencil Portrait, ’12.)
