Amazing! The custom picture that was done for my brother and his new wife was just what I wanted - just a fab job and I can’t thank you enough.
Great communication, great artist and lovely down to earth person.
Will definitely be returning for more portraits in the future.
Melissa is very talented and her illustrations bring character and personality. She provided amazing attention to detail, expert service and completed the project I needed in quick time. I would definitely recommend her services to anyone who is looking for an original gift to treasure forever.

Mel designed the best wedding gift I could have given to my best friend - an illustrated family portrait of the bride, groom and their new puppy.

So happy with the overall product and service I received.

Really professional and friendly. Mel's work is truly amazing and I am in love with my portrait. Thank you.
I cannot put into words how pleased I am with what Melissa has created for me. She has truly helped bring my vision to life! If you're after something special and unique then look no further.
Absolutely love our drawing! It's now framed & hung up on the wall. Thank you so much Melissa! Would highly recommend ordering.
