A selection of the feedback that I've received from my clients about me and my work. Further testimonials from my pet portrait clients can be found on my pet portraits website.

the lancet""For The Lancet special issue, "Darwin's Gifts", Andy drew the front and back covers, the title page illustrations for the foreword and 16 essays, and Charles Darwin's family tree. Andy produced beautiful drawings from a basic brief, and he worked closely with us, particularly on the covers, to develop the drawings and incorporate our ideas. All the drawings were completed to schedule, which was very important for our press deadlines. We were delighted with the finished product - the attention to detail in the pencil drawings is quite extraordinary, and the style of the drawings is perfectly suited to an issue focusing on Darwin.
- Katrina Phillips, The Lancet
matsa iv""I was very impressed with the portrait that Andy drew of my family. I thought I was asking the impossible to have a portrait done that showed four people, but that was made up from individual photos. Andy managed to put a beautiful composition together from six separate photographs, making it seem as though we were all there at the same time! The level of detail in the drawing is outstanding, and I know that my mum is going to love her present. Thanks very much for your hard work Andy.

matsa iv""We were delighted with both the service and the finished product; the attention to detail being most impressive. We got exactly what we had asked for a perfect representation of the photo and in the time promised. We have been pleased to recommend Andy to friends and family.

hindi wedding procession""I was really pleased with the final piece. Andy had a small image to work from and he really managed to bring it to life. He delivered on time and the friends I had commissioned the piece for loved their one-off artwork.

winnie the pooh teaches karate""I love the picture that Andy drew me - it has pride of place on my wall next to my black belt certificate! At first, I didn't realise that Andy had drawn it specially, as he captured the style of the classic Winnie-the-Pooh drawings perfectly.
