What my clients have to say...
Don't rely on my opinion...here is what my clients have said about their paintings.....
We were extremely happy with the paintings Alison did of our two Beagles; Dizzee and Rascal. The likeness she was able to capture of them both was perfect, and they hang in pride of place. We would certainly recommend Alison to paint a loved pet and would certainly commission Alison to paint for us again in the future
Hi Alison ... Just to let you know Jax has been delivered, and the recipients were absolutely delighted! They couldn't believe the likeness to the original photograph and are chuffed to bits with the gift, just what I was hoping for!
Many many thanks again, you are one very talented lady!! Jill xx -

I love the painting of my three horses. They all have very different characters and Alison has captured them all perfectly. I would highly recommend to anyone thinking of having a portrait done of their horse.
"Your wonderful painting of my dog is much admired and I am sure you will get lots more commissions from it. Thank you"

I love my painting of Rain. He stares at me as I walk through the door I actually think he's in my living room. You've got every feature spot on !! Thank you x
"I have been so so pleased with both paintings! One made a fantastic gift and the other of Ariel is such a special and treasured memento to remember her by. Thank you!"
Hi Alison. I absolutely love my painting of Oliver you captured him perfectly. He is on the wall where I can see him from all around the lounge and I smile every time I look at him. Thank you so much.
Alison painted 2 stunning oil portraits when my children were 4 and 2. She captured them beautifully and all our visitors usually gasp and say, 'WOW! Who did those?'. It's a lovely story to tell, as Alison and I met on our fashion degree course nearly 30 years ago!
We'll be commissioning her again before the kids enter their teens, Diane Pagan
I commissioned Alison to do a portrait of my son for my Mum's 70th birthday. I wanted to give my Mum a gift that was truly unique and something she would see everyday. It really was the most perfect gift. I was totally amazed at the likeness, Alison captured my boys face in such detail. I even see the same twinkle in his eye, which I see everyday in him! My Mum (and Dad), were over the moon. Mum actually had a little cry as she was quite overwhelmed with it. Jimbo thinks it's funny when he sees it as he says its like having a twin! Thank you so much Alison.
"I love the painting and can't stop looking at it! Now to pick the right frame. Thank you so much!"

Really pleased with the painting you did for us , the resemblance was spot on , will definitely recommend you to all my family and friends
We commissioned Alison to paint us a sunset scene which we photographed in Antigua. We gave her several shots to choose from and she selected the one which would give the best results as a painting. Alison's communication was excellent throughout and she gave us regular updates and delivered the painting within the timescale promised. We were blown away when we visited to see the finished product! To be honest it's better than the photo and many people have thought it is a photo we have had printed onto canvas. It is a truly lovely momento of an amazing holiday which was filled with sunsets. Everyone who visits our home comments on it and I would highly recommend her. She's a lovely friendly and fun artist!

I commissioned a pet portrait as a unique wedding present, for some friends who are notoriously difficult to buy for.Alison skilfully worked from some photographs and created an absolute masterpiece. My friends were blown away by her work and were delighted with how well she had captured both the likeness and personalities, of their two precious felines. The painting resides in pride of place in their home.
When Alison produced gift cards of the painting, my friends immediately ordered them to send to their friends and family.
When Alison decided to paint the A-z of dogs and asked for the letter 'D' my daughter sent her a picture of her Dalmation , the painting she produced from that was absolutely amazing and my daughter won't let me have it in the house it's on her bedroom wall , the second painting was a surprise for my daughter for Xmas , a fabulous picture of her horse which Alison had taken at a Pony club event , she was thrilled with it and a lovely Xmas present and is also in her bedroom , but the most fantastic one of all is of Beth her very first jumping pony , I absolutely love this painting and there's no way she's keeping it in her bedroom , this one is for me and everyone else to look at every day and has a prime spot in the lounge, I would thoroughly recommend Alison to anyone that wanted a painting doing and i am looking forward to painting number 4
