Over the years I have received many wonderful letters and photos from my clients. Read some of the Testimonials here.
I am the recipient of the best present I have ever received - the gorgeous / exquisite / lifelike portrait of Sunshine and Bossy. I value this above any present I have ever received. Honestly, I have been crying all day - from both sadness at my loss of Sunshine in my life and happiness in being bestowed with “my Sunshine” to live forever.
After receiving it, I brought it to my friends to see (while I cried) then to my sister to see (while I cried again). I truly cannot express how happy I am and how you and Suzi have given me a gift that I will cherish forever. Cindy
