Thank you for sending through the final image. Myself and my client are extremely pleased with the result and feel it will be a valuable addition to the planning documentation. We really appreciate your efforts with this and are rather envious of your artistic talent!

Super impressed with your work.  Not only with the  speed at which you have accommodated our needs but the interpretation of the site based on photographs and descriptions alone and without even visiting the site.

Rest assured we will be using you again and referring you to colleagues of ours.

My (Keble College Oxford) print arrived today, and I’ve just opened the tube. Thank you: it’s magnificent, and I must congratulate you on capturing the magic that is Liddon Quad to perfection. For those of us who gazed out on it every morning all those years ago (1966-69, to be precise), this is a wonderful reminder of polychromatic brick heaven. Congratulations!

The painting and prints have arrived, its stunning and captured the house perfectly. Thank you so much for all your help and time.

Nicholas Blakemore (Chairman Wychwood Homes Group)

Chris has been our regular new homes artist for nearly 15 years helping us successfully convey to prospective purchasers what the finished home will look like before it can be seen in reality.
He has a particular emphathy with period conversions and Cotswold stone houses. His bringing “to life” what is often a derelict site and only a plan of what is to be built, has been an invaluable tool for us over all these years. Chris’s paintings have proved so important to us that we even named one of our developments after him – “Fothergill Court” in 1998.

It’s absolutely BRILLIANT! You have made me a very happy Bride-to-be! Thank you.

Sami M (Developer)

Thank you very much for the illustration and it was wonderful dealing with you. I have no doubt I will be in contact with you in the near future.

Chris, it’s perfect, you’ve captured the subtle colouring just right! Thank you so much!

Adele

We’ve just got back from our niece’s Graduation party in Bristol and she loved the portrait! As we were walking up the path to her house, I noticed the heart in her window which you feature in the portrait. She spotted it immediately when she opened the present and it made it so personal! Thank you for a great job! I think we have one very happy customer – well, three actually if you include me and my partner.

Isobel A

God – it’s even better in real life! It’s just arrived and I absolutely LOVE it, and know they will too.Thank you so so much.

Thank you so much for the picture. It arrived safely yesterday and my husband is delighted with it as am I! The detail of the house is fantastic and you have really managed to capture the feel of the street.

Chloe and Sasha

We have been very impressed with the personable and friendly service offered by Chris and the house portrait is exactly what we hoped for and will be a fantastic present for our parents to treasure for ever. We are recommending Chris to all our friends who are looking for an artist.

I’ve been asked to pass on my thanks to you on behalf of the Members and the project team for the high quality of work produced. They also really liked your style. I’m also very grateful for the speed at which you turned these around. I promise to give you a bit more notice next time and there’s lots you can assist us with in the future.

The picture looks fantastic! Thank you so much and I apologise for putting you under such time pressure. I am sure my husband will be delighted with it and I already have ideas for further pictures which I would like to ask you to do.

Tim

Well worth waiting for and just what I was after. It captures the feel and character of Alamanda. You can almost feel the wrap around warmth of the tropics. Pity the painting doesn’t emit the bird song as well.

Sally

Just to say a huge thank you for the painting of N…’s house – he thought it was fab.
