'Susie created some incredible artwork for my music tuition business. She listened to what I wanted and helped come up with the perfect picture. Not only was the original picture a brilliant piece or art, Susie even produced a range of options for me to use as business cards and website logos. It has helped me build my own little brand and gets compliments all the time. I can't recommend Susie highly enough. She is a wonderful talent.'

I was struggling with ideas for my husbands Christmas present this year, it seems to get harder to find something truly unique, special and meaningful with each passing year, but having seen Susie's work on the Mermaid pictures, I knew a picture by her would be all of those things. I absolutely wasn't disappointed, Susie drew a picture of myself and my husband on our first date, it was exactly what I asked for and exactly what I had in minds eye. I cried when Susie gave it to me and my husband even had tears on Christmas day, it was so special and the picture has captured all of the details and the memories of the day. Like all of Susie's work, the quality of our picture is outstanding. Not only had my husband both framed and hung it in our lounge by boxing day, but it will be treasured forever and it makes me smile everytime I walk past it. That's a money can't buy present.
Right from the first phone call Susie was totally in tune with what I wanted. She was able to interpret my garbled ideas and worked miracles from my poorly composed photos. Susie was always at the of the phone or email and endlessly patient with my suggestions or adjustments which I really appreciated.
The end result is fantastic! Susie has managed to capture our animals' likeness and characters in her distinctive style. We both love the finished drawing and it has pride of place over our dining table. It gets a lot of comments and admiring glances! I would (and have!) recommend Susie's work to anyone considering the creation of something truly unique. The design process was as enjoyable as is owning the final result!
If you would like a really unique commission (we had a family portrait done), drawn by someone with amazing talent, who is able to listen to your requirements/requests and who then puts all these idea's into a rough sketch of the info you have given her and from then on walks you through the whole process until the day you receive your commission (*breathe*!) ... then, Susie is the artist for you!!
We highly recommend her and know she will offer you the best of what she does so well!
'After seeing a friend’s commissioned bespoke art piece by Susie it got me thinking of having one done of my family, and with my mother in-law's birthday approaching, I decided to have all of her children, partners, grandchildren and our lifestyle included. This was going to be a bit of a challenge to include 12 people, 2 dogs, some Texel sheep and a South Devon cow, plus a back drop!
But Susie was absolutely brilliant, her correspondence throughout the whole process was amazing and with very little effort from me! Just a few pics of the individuals and the odd photo of a possible back ground and ‘Voila’ a draft was composed.
Susie kept me informed of all progress and asked questions as and when required which was lovely, if I wasn’t happy with the layout or idea I was able to say yay or nay! Then to be sent a draft copy was fab, to see it all coming together was very exciting.
From that point I ordered another 2 prints to go with the original and I could not be more happy with the final coloured result, it's amazing. My mother in-law's is in prime position for everyone to see, as is mine.
I would not hesitate to have another picture done by Susie, of my animals or my family and friends. Thank you Susie for making something so personal and fuss free! You're a very talented lady.'

'I have loved Susie's drawings for many years. I moved to the countryside and fulfilled a dream of owning some hens. Soon friends and neighbours were asking me for eggs, so I wanted a unique label for my recycled egg boxes. Susie came and drew my actual hens and eggs! The drawing and colours were amazing and I am so pleased. Everyone comments on the label. I would highly recommend her. Now I just wish I had more animal for her to draw!! '
