Twiggy was finally opened late yesterday afternoon, I got a message that simply said "I LOVE IT" they couldn't believe how you had managed to capture Twiggy in a painting. I replied it is because you are super talented! Victoria is going to send me a photo of the painting when she gets home, for some daft reason I didn't take any before wrapping it up. However, please feel free to post on IG in the meantime. Thank you again, they are both really thrilled with it. Alison & Peter xx”

“Having looked at the painting and having my friends have a look too, we all agree that that is bloody amazing!!

… Just picked ‘Rita’ up from Julia’s house and taken her to be framed.

Absolutely amazing picture of her. I thought you must be crazy wanting to draw her with all her unusual markings but Julia said you loved it ! Don’t get her back till the end of January but it will give me something to look forward to!


Helen came round today to collect her Rita picture. It is absolutely stunning and she is thrilled with it. I have a very happy sister! Many thanks for all your hard work.”

“No amendments! It's truly amazing what such resemblance you have created. I've looked several times this evening at the drawing and the more I come back to it, the more I see Pluto's resemblance!

…I hope Henry will look at it and be reminded of the good times he spent walking the mountain/days out shooting with 'Toot' (Pluto)…I am speechless, your work is wonderful! beyond belief, the colour you have added has made Henry and Pluto much lifelike, instantly recognisable! May I thank you so much for this.

…I can only echo my pervious e-mail to you - you have been quite simply brilliant from start to finish, nothing was too much trouble...

Thank you, thank you, thank you so much for everything, from your wonderful and brilliant art skills, your eye for detail and most importantly your trust in me to deliver on this project to the end. I am sure it is frustration starting a project only for the customers to change his/hers mind and forget the whole thing. I can only imagine this! thank you also for the very kind card you enclosed in the parcel.”

“Hi Eleanor, I hope this message finds you safe and well. I'm just getting in touch, very belatedly, to say again a massive THANK YOU from both me and my fiancée (Corrine) for creating this wonderful piece for us.

Corrine absolutely adores the gift (her exact words: "it's my favourite thing ever!") and, like me, is full of praise for how artfully, delicately, and accurately you captured the scene (and the remarkable likeness of the two of us, down to the details of the clothes we were wearing).

We are both really grateful for all the care and thought you put into this. It's really special, and will take pride of place in our flat!

Wishing you a very merry and restful Christmas!

Kind regards, Frances"

"Dear Eleanor, I wanted to take the time to reach out to you personally to sincerely thank you after recently receiving my carefully-wrapped commission piece in the post. Not only am I utterly thrilled with your work and excited to have it framed and on the wall, but I'm so appreciative of the time, care and attention you offered throughout the process. You took the time to understand my vision and kept me up-to-date throughout the process; from photographs of the initial sketches to the hyperlapse videos that allowed me to see the piece coming to life. I'm so incredibly pleased with the finished piece and it has surpassed my already-high expectations by a country mile. Thank you again for capturing a location and a memory that is so very dear to me, in your own unique and beautiful style, and I hope that we have the chance to work together again in the future. Best regards,"
