Dear Ms. Shimeld,
I just got notified that you'd viewed my profile and so I went on to read your bio. I'm inspired by what you do and would love to know more about your work. I'm 20 years old and I've started a storytelling social networking site called MELT (Mind, Elevate & Talk) and the site is aimed at collecting stories from people of all walks of life who have an interesting story to tell. Would you like to be one of the first MELTers? Let me know and we can talk about it!

C. A - Hawaii
Thanks for your email. I've just put up a lovely butterfly wallpaper in the spare bedroom and think your blue butterfly would match it so could you send the greeting card - one which might work if it's the same size as Mr Hare. I could then get the print. It is a stunning picture.
J. P - Bridport - U.K
Thank you for letting me know that the print is on its way. I can't wait to see my sister's face when she finally opens it in May. Thanks again
D. P - U.K
Su, you are undoubtedly a very kind and warm lady. Nothing can soothe a wounded and confused psyche as a kind lady can. I am sure this warmth is something very magnanimous that you have gained from living closer and more in tune to Nature. It feels genuinely soothing that i have found a friend in you. We may happen to meet or may not; but i am going to remember you for good. :)
S. S - India
Thank you so much for your prompt reply - I know she will love the print!!
D. P - Australia
Just had to tell you how Mr Hare has fitted in the new kitchen. I tried him on the windowsill and he's perfect. I shall get him a frame tomorrow. The way he looks is just right for his position and he's watching me when I come in through the door - he's brilliant and I'm sure we shall have quite a few conversations - one way anyway! :)
J.P - U.K
Hello my dear!!!
How are you doing? I don't think we will come to End of Road festival at Larmer Studio this year. I am much more sad that I won't see you than about festival itself :(((

Joyce - U.K
I just don't know what to say Su the picture is beautiful I am so happy and also crying at the same time. I knew you would capture M's character and its not just a picture it really is M. Thank you so much Su.
Lots of Love and big hug for Tehya xxx
C. H - Gloucestershire - U. K
I met you at The End of the Road festival in Larmer tree gardens, and was impressed by both your work and philosophy toward nature as well as your life story in relation to your work. Thanks again, this was just the sort of thing I was looking for and to the point, all most helpful. I look forward to hearing from you. Many thanks,
A. H - U.K
Hello my dear,
This summer I met you and your works were so inspiring to me and seeing your personality in it was tremendous. I felt great energy from our meeting. In autumn I met this pelicans in St James park and I started to draw them. They are incredible prehistoric creatures. I want you to see them:
K. M - London
It was great to chat, lovely to hear your back in the studio!! your website and work is fabulous Sue!!! Amazing!

Hello again Susan
I recently purchased the lovely Whippet print from you and am wondering if the Whippet has a name. I purchased the print on behalf of our local Whippet & Greyhound Club as a prize for our forthcoming Whippet national Championship Show to be held in May next year in Adelaide. I am hoping to include a short story on each of the prizes for that show. This print will either be awarded to the Best Exhibit, Runner Up or Opposite Sex In Show dependent on the final cost once it has been framed.
Many t5hanks in anticipation
Anne-Marie C - Australia
Your phone call was one of the loveliest I had ever received, thank you very much for calling in it was pleasure to speak to you. J.F, did indeed pass your envelope to F. S, who then passed it on to Sir David Attenborough and even watched him open and read your letter. He took your envelope home with him, and if you left your details in the envelope then there is the possibility you may hear from him (I am afraid I can't promise anything) but F.S reports he seemed genuinely pleased and flattered by your letter.
Dorset Wildlife Trust - U. K
I know that you are continuing to be very busy with your bat charges - for which the BG remains so grateful. At our last comm meeting re: the newsletter - it was thought that a little item on the rescued bats might be nice. WHEN you have a spare moment (and I appreciate that might not be for a good while yet) would it be possible for you to make a few jottings on your experience and then maybe we could use those notes to feed into a newsletter item.
Very many thanks for the endeavour,
L. H - Dorset Bat Group - U.K
Thank you for Brown Hare. You print was won by a lady who had fallen in love with Brown Hare fine art print, at first sight. She was delighted. We raised £37 on the day for League Against Cruel Sports which I am paying on line today.
Thank you again for your support. With best wishes,
Rev.Noel L. Stevens - Dorset - U.K
Thank you so much for your message. I look forward to receiving them ( and giving!)

Hi Su, How are you? I just though i'd contact you as i have had the print framed and it looks fantastic, D. loves it. Thankyou so much for sending it over. D. will be going to England next week and he is thinking of dropping in and having a look. Do you have any plans to do another macaw yet? Take care.
T. Blundy - Australia
I found your website, while I was surfing through the net. I love your artwork very much! You paint amazing pet portraits!

We are going to have a day of talks, stalls and family fun on all things badger (basically a celebration of bagders) which will be in the Old Town Hall (venue to be confirmed) from 1000-2 (latest). We would love it if you could come along and show your work and give a talk on badger art etc. Stroud is a very artistic area and your work and insights would be terrific. I hope you can come as we would be thrilled.
Best wishes and thanks,
Chris G. - U.K
Hi Susan, I found your website and love your work. Are you planning on doing any further macaw paintings?
Tamara - Australia
Your drawings are beautiful!
K. K - U.K
The print arrived today & it is terrific. Thank you for working with me on the crazy mix-up. The whole thing was my fault dang my mistyping fingers. Love the 'Crossing the River' print. Wonderful, thanks!
A. S - Michigan - U.S.A
Thanks Su, and enjoy your mini holiday, for the next few days! I am looking forward to receiving the wonderful print! Thank you so much, I am really excited about adding this print to a wall in my home.
Anne - U.S.A
Hi Su, I would like to thank you again for taking the time to talk with us yesterday when we visited your studio. It was so interesting and we both bowled over by your work. I love my print of the hare and I will mount and frame it by the weekend so it can go up on the wall. I did come home with the fire to want to do some more drawing/painting. I have told my husband he has got to come to your studio to see for himself you fantastic drawings and paintings, so hopefully we will be able to do that in the not to distant future. Once again thank you and look forward to seeing you again soon.
S. B - Dorset - U.K
I have just viewed your art work it is really impressive. Especially your pencil drawings of the wolves :)
K - U.K
Thank you for the lovely 'Greater Horseshoe Bat' Fine Art Print that I purchased for my girlfriend, who happens to be a licensed bat worker! It is often very difficult to obtain good artwork of animals that are often subject to persecution among the many i.e. Bats, Snakes, Lizards etc.. However you have captured the very essence of the species in your fine art print and it now resides in pride of place in her living room. I think you would do well to add a few more images of the more 'unfamiliar' species to your collection and I'm sure I would be back and indeed recommend you to my friends and colleagues.
Brett - U.K
When I was in England last (I live in Portugal) my brother told me he had been having difficulty sourcing pictures of hares, which he loves. So I googled hares, and discovered your site. Consequently, as you know, I ordered a print to be sent to my brother. He was absolutely enchanted with it and has now had it framed and it is on his wall. Thank you so much. I am hoping that when you complete the 'Hares Boxing' picture that I can purchase that too for him.
June (Schneeweiss-Moody) - Portugal
Thakyou for your feedback, Im glad. You gave me some good advice, and it will keep me going. I will keep plugging away at it. It was really lovely to chat to you I will let you know of any other trails or exhibitions I think you should know about. We will keep in touch.
M. - U.K
Dear Susan, I cannot thank you enough for taking the time to reply to my letter. The emages you sent will help us very much in our art groups work, as we have limited access to library books and also limited use of compters. I never thought I would hear from any of the artist's. You have broken my duck, as you are the first. We are in your debt forever Susan I hope your work trebles in commissions ect because you deserve it. I look forward to seeing and hearing more about your brilliant work. Best Wishes,
Stephen. F. - U.K

I would like to download several images and print them for students to use (or if you would be willing to email several jpeg files with higher resolution). I am interested in sharing with the students your paintings – your seahorse painting was the one that particularly caught my eye as a subject matter which would catch my young students' attention.
Julia S. - Alexandria VA
Thank you Su, I love your Leo drawing on Denise's card - I shall of course frame it.

Dear Susan, I just wanted to drop you a line to say that it was lovely to meet you briefly last weekend in your studio at Lama Tree Gardens – you are very lucky to have such a beautiful studio and surroundings! Your work was truly inspirational to me, and got me thinking a lot about the direction I would like to follow in the future!

Dear Su, I just received your print "Tropical Butterflies of the World". It is gorgeous! I can't wait to have it framed and hung. Thank you.
J. G. - N.Y - U.S.A
Dear Su, Thank you for your prompt reply. Your art is exquisite! I want you to know that your 'Tropical Butterflies of the World' has been purchased as a donation to The Diversity Gallery where I am a teacher. It has become the custom for retirees to contribute a piece of artwork that represents the many facets of diversity. When I found your piece I was elated! It will be enjoyed daily by our students and staff. Many teachers use the Gallery as a starting point for various studies and projects. Yours will be a wonderful addition for study. I thought you should know what was intended for your fine work.
Janice G. - N.Y - U.S.A

Hi Susan!! My name is E. K, I met you in your gallery at Lama Tree Gardens during The End of The Road Festival. I just wanted to let you know that my website is up and running (finally!!) I also want to say how lovely it was to meet such a pleasant fellow artist.
E. K - U.K
May I take this opportunity to thank you so much for the swift response to my purchase request; it was much appreciated.Your painting of Church Way Wood reminds me so much of my meanderings with friends through woods straddling the South Downs; I was amazed when I saw your picture and the way it captured so perfectly the flora and fauna we so often stumble across through the seasons.You might like to know, the card is being given to a very special friend for Christmas and I'm sure she'll appreciate it as much as I do :) Wishing you a merry Christmas and may 2010 bring you much inspiration!
Andy Davis - E. Sussex - U.K
The cards arrived safely this morning (Tues) they are absolutely gorgeous you are very gifted. Thank you for the extra effort you made packing them safely and posting them recorded delivery your work deserves this special attention. You are extremely talented and should let the world know. I also think it is lovely when someone values their work enough to pack it nicely, and your work is valuable. Good luck.
Dianne Desmond - W. Sussex - U.K
Your 'Robin in Snowdrops' has pride of place in my house. Everyone who visits comments on it. It is a perfect reminder of mum's love of both robins (regular visitors to our back garden) and snowdrops (in our front garden). Each day I look at your inspirational work and think of my dear, loving mother. I searched the internet for many days, before I found your work. Nothing I saw came even close to delivering my 'dream'. The range and quality of your work is stunning and I would recommend you to my closest friends without hesitation. Not only was your original work of great quality, the service you provided in dealing with my order was first rate. At every step of the process I was kept fully informed, with my picture arriving exactly on time. I was even given very clear guidance on how to unpack the work. You have provided me with a lifelong memory of my dear mother and I cannot thank you enough for that.Thank you so much, Su, for all your care and attention to detail, along with your very thoughtful and special comments relating to my personal circumstances. Take care.
My very best wishes,
Trevor Clarke - Herefordshire - U.K
Just wanted to say thank you so much for the Peacock print you sent me for my mum's birthday. It is absolutely beautiful and I am delighted with it.

I am very happy with my purchase, I am sure my mum is going to love it and I would recommend your work to everyone. You are very talented.
Fran - Leicester - UK

I would definitely order again and recommend others to do so. Thank you.

The print arrived o.k. and I am very happy with the service I received from your good self. I first saw the little chap on the orangutan foundation web site and I thought what a beautiful expression he had on his face. He looks so kind, considerate, content, reasonable, compassionate, understanding, lovable and hairy, just like me. I'm even thinking of having a tattoo of him on my shoulder.(with your permission of course). I really must compliment you on your skills as an artist, you are fantastic.
Happy christmas and Luv from Septimus Aloysius Lazenby (my pseudonym) :-)
S. L - East Yorkshire - U.K
I was delighted with your print of the Leonberger and the card of the same. The quality was superb and delivery was prompt and packaging excellent. I have had the print framed for my sister as she has just bought a Leonberger puppy for her recent retirement - she couldn't be happier with it.
Many thanks and kind regards, Judy Stobbs

Hi there, Su (or can I call you 'sushi'?) Don't know why, but it just sounds nice as a word.
What a wonderful exposition on fire and all things to do with fire! I don't have it in front of me as I write but I can remember reading what you wrote, so eloquently, may I say. We really do seem to be uncannily like two flakes off the same piece of flint, methinks. Perhaps 'flakes' is the wrong word to use here, but you see what I mean. I can just picture you in your little nest over in your now far corner of the world. I wonder if you can picture us in ours? The fires are different every day, each one a unique living thing in the heart of our house. Just like yours is in your house.
Take care and have lots of fun. From your never-met friend,
Your peregrine is sitting watching me on my desk as I write this, and is so lifelike it's almost scary!
Paul - from the other side of the World
I was so pleased with the print and the service I received that I bought another for my daughter. This is truely one of the best I have

I've double checked with the person I got the card for and she said she loved it, loved the design, and would like another one - as long as it's another orang-utan! She has a thing about them.
Adam - Norfolk - U.K
The cards I purchased were beautifully made and presented. The service you offered was excellent.

Just wanted to say that I found your work & site amazing, a breath of fresh air. You are person after my own heart. I love mother earth, wildlife,fauna & woodlands etc. I try to preserve what we have inherited in as many ways as possible although I am not an artist like yourself. A keen nature lover, I admire how your art work brings everything into real life. I shall go back to study in depth all the information & history that you have so carefully described in these wonderful pages. Greetings from the Highlands of Scotland.
Maureen - Ross-Shire - Scotland
I come across to your website during the searching about wildlife conservation topic. By visiting your website with some amazing illustrations i've remembered my early days, when my father bought me a book called 'Animal Atlas' of Oxford Uni. Press with lifelike illustrations of wild animals. I still have this book with me. I really like your artwork. Your work not only pleasing and life-like but it also reflects the expressions as well as relationship between animal and it's habitat.
With best wishes and lots of success. Sincerely,
Rahul Parekh - Gujurat - India
The print arrived promptly, & looks fine. Framed up it looks very good, & the final verdict will be delivered on my wife's birthday! I think though it will gain me some house points!
Regards, and many thanks,
Brian. M - Orpington - U.K
I received the card very promptly, and was very pleased with it. It is a lovely drawing, and we are going to frame the card. I would not hesitate to recommned the products and service that you provide.
Gill Chapman - South Wales - U.K
The Labrador print arrived safely, well packaged and in perfect condition and importantly in a timely manner. I chose this print because it is so like our much loved Yellow Lab, William, who sadly died earlier in the year, your work has brought back such happy memories for my wife and I. It is a very fine drawing, and represents the breed nicely. Many thanks for your good service and good work.
Alan Green - U.K
Just a quick note to let you know that the fuchsia card arrived safely - many thanks for the excellent service. It was a Christmas gift for my wife and she was very pleased with the card - in fact, I bought two so that she could give one to one of her friends who was equally impressed with the quality of the card. Many thanks again,
Alan Curtis - U.K.
I was very happy with the service and the print that I received. As you may have sumized I bought the picture for a friend who loves hares. You have some fantastic work on your site - coming from a family of artists that is a compliment! I also have to say that I was delighted to receive the picture so promptly as I was late in ordering and with Christmas coming fast etc.... but it did arrive - I think the next day or certainly within two days which was amazing. Thank you again. I would certainly consider your gallery again if looking for wildlife pictures in the future.
C. P - Knaresborough - U.K
I just wanted to take the time to convey to you our thanks for donating your works to our auction in London on Sunday 16th December at Flemings Mayfair Hotel. Thanks to your kindness and generousity we auctioned 1 of your images entitled 'Baby

Hello there. Your work is quite unbelievable - makes me feel weak-kneed in its impossibleness. Don't know how I can convey my thoughts really - just fabulous.

The three cards that I purchased were excellent and I will buy more in the future. Also the service was excellent.

Thanks very much for the Hare print it arrived safe and sound. The print is a Christmas present for my wife and I know she will be thrilled. We live in a village in Leicestershire and every day we walk our labrador pup in a field full of hares. This will be a great reminder of our memories. Cheers - Richard
Richard. P - Leicestershire - U.K
I am writing to ask about the price and the possibility of a portrait of our Border Collie dog. You photographed our African grey parrot, about 18 years ago and produced a wonderful portrait from them (I notice, with great admiration, that it is on your website) and we were delighted with it. Remembering what a fantastic portrait you produced last time we are hopeful that you can find the time to produce another excellent picture. We hope your artwork for the book is going well and we are sure the conservation group will be very pleased with your work. Regards
D & T. Y - Oxford - U.K
It IS you!! I just found your website and I'm now completely awe-struck (or is that stricken?), your work is absolutely amazing. Hey, "passing ships" is such a sad thing. Once is a shame, twice would be criminal so if you'd like to stay in touch I'm right here. Watch out for those wolves!!!
R. H. - Plymouth - U.K
Yes, I actually received the print yesterday and I am very pleased with it - an ideal Christmas present for one of my friends who loves boxers! Many thanks for taking the time to enquire about my receiving the print. Kind regards,
M.C. - Midlothian - U.K
Im sure you dont remember me, but I'm so excited to find you. Your yahoo website page has the fantastic portrait of my pony Janie and Airlies dog Nika on it. I was working at A....... Farm when you did our wonderful portraits. You had a lovely dog, Orca? I look forward to hearing from you.

I am writing to you on behalf of the Great Dane Club of Canada. I was sent your site by a friend who is just beginning to do an art class....your artwork is fabulous!! So delicate with such detail.
Deborah B. - Ontario - Canada
I must say that I was more than impressed with the service you provided in getting the fine art print of the "Baby Orang Utan" to me. It was here within a couple of days from my purchase. The print itself matched up to the previous purchase we made of "Amy". The fact that we know that money from the sales is going to help in trying to overcome the plight of the Orang Utans makes the whole package so worthwhile. Thank you very much for everything. Please let us know if you produce other fine art prints.
M. L - Verwood - Dorset - U.K
Many thanks for your e-mail. I purchased this card for my wife for our 9 th wedding anniversary. We love nature and have had one or two very magical experiences with Barn Owls in the English countryside. I was very impressed with the quality of the card, the print was very sharp. We are decorating our bedroom in November and I am sorely tempted to buy a print of this beautiful painting when it is finished!
M. K. F - Surrey - U.K
Oh My Gosh......Su, they are BEAUTIFUL, Thank you, thank you, thank you !! They arrived safe and sound and I took them to be framed today, will collect them before we head off to the show this coming weekend. I sincerely appreciate your kindness, you are a very special lady, you're one in a million. I wish you every success in everything that you do. Take care and keep smiling!
Sharon Hamilton - Missouri - U.S.A
As you know I recently ordered 'Gentle Giant' and couldn't be happier with the service I received. My picture arrived just two days after placing my order and during this time I received e-mails informing me of my orders progress. The quality of your work is outstanding and I can't stop looking at the fine detail within 'gentle giant'. It is an incredibly powerful picture and I enjoy just looking at him and waiting for him to take another step closer, it becomes that real. I hope your future customers receive as much pleasure from their purchases as I have.
Kathryn. S - Southampton - U.K
My sister and I visited you on Thursday when we came to the gardens, and we were delighted that we had the chance to meet you in person. We both thought how lovely your pictures were. I cannot thank you enough.

Hello, I happened upon your website while searching for a portrait of a German Shepherd and was just blown away with your wonderful art. I am also a portrait artist, mostly humans, however, and I do my work in oils. Right now I have been commissioned to paint a German Shepherd and was looking at different web sites for ideas. When I came across your website, I stopped.
Your work is some of the best I've seen any where.
Best of luck, and I will tell everyone about your website.
Very pleased with the service. Very quick delivery and no problems with ordering or paying online. Compared with some other more well known websites, I was very impressed.

F. J - Shropshire - U.K
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.
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.

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.

Keep up the good work and best wishes to you.
