Hi, I know I keep on about it but those images are just so evocative, looking out on a cloudy November day, They really have the power to transport me out of that place and into the natural world again, the world I love so much, the one we increasingly feel somehow distant from in our funny little brick-bound lives... You got the power!!!
Hope you are disgustingly well and full of life's energy too.
Regards,
P. Braxton - Lytchett Matravers - Dorset - U.K

Having unsuccessfuly searched for a relevant flower art card for my niece Fuchsia, I was delighted to find exactly what I wanted on this site. The ordering process was easy and the card arrived a few days later, well packed to protect it in the post.

Dear Su,
I enjoyed my visit to your site. You are an excellent Traditional Artist. In my own Traditional brand of art, I do both wildlife and scenery as well as still life. I attempt to bring out the natural aspects of each work (I feel even a still life has a natural quality about it that needs to be nurtured). Good painting to you too, and good luck to us both!! I know you are in the U.K, but if you ever get in range of the Gatlinburg area, stop in, I'd love to meet you.

I was taking a quick walk at lunchtime today in a little industrial unit at Blandford when I saw your peregrine falcon card thro' a partially opened doorway and popped into the petshop there and bought it on the spot. Just couldn't believe how good your work is. I'm bowled over! Just checked out your website and bowled over by that, too. It's good to know somebody is doing good stuff. Keep up the good work and best wishes to you.

I am very excited about your artwork and receiving the prints and greeting cards. Your beautiful artwork reminds me of our local Colorado artist Shane Dimmick that I collect. She, too does wonderful prints of wildlife, similar to your Harvest Mouse. You both have a wonderful talent for capturing the detail and beauty of birds and animals.

They arrived in good shape and the whippet is just as beautiful as I thought it would be!! It is exquisite in every way and I am so pleased. I can't wait to find a good framer for the print so I can hang it. It will certainly have a place of honor among my whippet art collection.
Holly .T - Texas - U.S.A

I've just been looking at your website and i'm amazed at your artwork, you really are talented. I was particularly taken by your pet studies, especially the dogs (for obvious reasons). I'm seriously considering treating myself at Christmas time......
