A cracker job - thanks Brenda. Jane now looks like someone a lot more real than she did in the little, wee photo that was the original. Doubly lovely:)

Brenda Neal: Thanks Karen... Considering it was from a 170-year-old photograph it had its challenges...But very rewarding.
Brenda has done a magnificent job of a replica portrait for me. A difficult piece but she has provided a fantastic, well detailed painting. I have no hesitation in recommending your services Brenda. Excellent. Thank you so much. A gift for my partner which she will be thrilled to receive.

If you are looking for something unique and awesome, this is it.Brenda is so talented and friendly. I ordered a portrait of my fav picture of my partner and me, for his 30th. My partner loved it, and was really happy with his gift. I thought it looked amazing, like a photo to which you would have added a painting filter, that realistic! I will definitely order another from her in the future.

When you have been married for almost 50 years it gets difficult to find something different for special birthdays. I was so lucky to stumble upon Brenda's website and I knew instantly that I was on to a winner. Brenda is a delight to work with, her talent is superb, her communication outstanding. When her finished article arrived on time it was brilliant. She has my wife copied perfectly. No mistaking who she is. Thank you Brenda, for completing a happy day for us..

I have just received my painting and I just love it. Amazing considering you only a small photograph to work from. The likeness is perfect. It will be a treasured painting for many years to come. Many thanks.

Excellent portrait that exceeded our high expectations. The painting really captured everyone well, even better than the original photo. Very highly recommended.

Absolutely a breeze to deal with. The portrait is stunning and done very carefully with a lot of detail. Highly recommend this service to all!

Absolutely amazing!! I've always believed that a real artist won't charge the world for her or his art because they love what they do and they love giving their art. Not only was Brenda incredibly affordable but she is one hell of an artist!! When I received my portrait I was stunned, for the price I thought it would be good, but it's stunning!! I'm so stoked that I stumbled across this. Thank you Brenda! I look forward to more of your art. You have given us one memorable gift! :)

As with all the other review comments I too would like to express the same opinion with regards to the work Brenda produces. Communication is first class and of course quality of work equally as good. Highly recommend AAA+++

Thank you very much Brenda for the fabulous job done in a third of your standard time. It was such a beautiful present and everyone loved it. He couldn't get over how close the painting was to the photo. His remark "I can actually see myself in that painting". That's exactly what I wanted. Thank You very much. Lu

Brenda, what a great wedding anniversary present, the picture of our daughter at Castlepoint is amazing, so great that you can combine a variety of photos into one portrait, and the fact you can view it before its sent and any feedback acted on (it was perfect didn't need to change a thing anyway). Would highly recommend (already have) to others :) A great way to inject color and life into our home, thank you - feel free to show it off with promo etc..we already have :) We will be back!!
