TESTIMONIALS

I commissioned Susanna to create an oil portrait of our beloved yellow lab, Marlie for my husband's 50th birthday. Marlie is cheeky, playful and full of personality. Susanna captured our dog to perfection, in fact on opening his beautifully wrapped gift, my husband was moved to tears to see such a lifelike image. Marlie the portrait is now hanging proudly in our home where she will remain even once our real Marlie has gone to doggy heaven. Can't thank you enough Susanna for the best birthday present!

We have had an amazing week starting with the successful delivery of your amazing painting. I couldn’t bring myself to unwrap the beautiful paper so decided to leave it for Jess to do. We travelled to Canberra to see her promoted in the most beautiful ceremony and gave her the painting. She was overwhelmed. She asked us to convey her thanks. Thank you, you are really talented. I appreciate all your hard work. I will be in touch soon. Would love you to paint my babies. Talk soon.

I just wanted to contact you to thank you once again for all your help with our Portrait. Pam loved it, when she saw it after the tears cleared. Pam is particularly taken with Chrissy’s portrait, but is thrilled by them all. As an aside, our 6 year old Grandson was here for Pam’s birthday and he recognised Rory immediately, even though Rory died in 2012 when our grandson was only 3 years old. Once again thank you very much, the portrait, and your consideration during the process, met all of our expectations.

Hope all is well with you. I received my beautiful Christmas card yesterday and also my special gift from you which is under the tree, so lovely of you to do that. I wanted to tell you that we have opened our portrait of Monte and absolutely fell in love with it. You certainly have captured him and the frame and colours chosen match just perfectly. We are so grateful for this experience with you which I feel has helped us with the loss of our dear little man, the way you handled everything since our first contact was so professional but with such a kindness and understanding that I will always fondly remember. Thank you again Susanna for everything and for giving us this beautiful portrait to cherish.

I don't think Tad (Michael) has stopped staring at the pic! I went over lunchtime yesterday and he was blown away with his pressie. It made me happy to be able to give him something some special. Deb loves the portrait too. Thanks so much Susanna ... it's been lovely to interact with you and get to know each other. I've so enjoyed the experience. And it's a nice feeling to make Tad happy. Have a lovely Sunday.

I opened the portraits with my Mother and Jan. Thank you for the beautiful wrapping and tag. The portraits are lovely and so lifelike. The painting is very fine and exquisite. The white frames are just right. The brown would have been too dark. Jan and mum were impressed. Mum recognized Ben alright. A keepsake. Thank you very much for them and all your patience. I will be showing them off!

Bonnie & I are extremely pleased with Smith's portrait, the likeness to our Smith is remarkable; the frame & name plate really complete a wonderful picture. Bonnie’s sister in Sydney (we sent an image to her), said it was “..incredible how you painted Smith in pastels like that”. She does a bit of oil painting herself - and may contact you to do her dog. Thank you very much for your patience with us. Have a great Christmas and New Year.

Zed arrived this afternoon. I am staring at him now and find it hard to take my eyes off him. It is absolutely incredible. You have done the most amazing job. The eyes are perfect and I feel he is just staring back at me. You would have loved the reaction of my class and fellow staff members. The awes and wow's! I know my husband and family will be impressed too. Thank you so much for your hard work and dedication in making him perfect. I love him and will treasure this artwork forever.

Trouble's portrait was given to her owner Claire today. She was so, so happy! She had a tear in her eye, which is not like her as she is not an overly dramatic person. It was great to see her reaction, exactly what I was hoping for. 🙂 She said you captured her coat colour and nose and eyes perfectly, and that the portrait felt 3D and very life-like. Beautiful job Susanna, thank you so much. The portrait and frame and everything in between was just perfect! Highly recommended! Much thanks again and again!"

I just want to thank you again for the lovely picture of Griffin you did for me and also the one of Tyson you did for Cathy to give me for Christmas. My nephew just loved Griffin. I had them framed and the artist that framed them for me was really impressed at your talent. Hope all goes well for you and keep up the wonderful work you do.

I asked Susanna to create a portrait of dad's beloved dog, Bonnie, whom he had lost earlier this year. She was a beautiful dog with a big personality. After searching online, I found Pawfect Pet Portraits and loved the work that was on display. I am so glad I decided to go with Susanna. She was incredibly helpful and kept me informed throughout the process of drawing Bonnie. My sisters and I gave Bonnie to dad for Father's Day. He became quite emotional when he opened the beautifully wrapped parcel. Then he spent the rest of the night saying "Wow, it's brilliant." Dad is moving into a retirement village in three weeks and we wanted him to take a memory of Bonnie with him. She will hang pride-of-place in his new home. (He has already been in and decided where he will put her). So thank you, Susanna. You have captured Bonnie to perfection and have made an old man very happy. Would highly recommend you to anyone.

Hope you and your family have a safe a peaceful Christmas and new year.

My mind is rich with memories of Minky Bear & Pixie however none of my many photos were good enough to enlarge & frame. Then I met Susanna... Words cannot express my thanks Susanna - your beautiful portrait has immortalised them (& their rascal of a little brother Coby who still continues to create havoc & make us laugh!
