Sophie gave us the most exquisitely drawn pictures of both the church in which we got married in Shropshire and the church in which our two girls were christened in Oxfordshire. Every time I look at her drawings I just smile as they evoke wonderful memories. Sophie's attention to detail is amazing and her talent is boundless. Thank you so much Sophie. Xxxxxxxxx

Clare Balding, TV presenter
"It is so lovely, a million thank yous. Thank you for giving us the chance to treasure him at his happiest and healthiest"
"Thank you for the beautiful silhouettes you painted of **** and me. We could not love them more, you have captured our profiles with almost uncanny accuracy"
"Wow that is the best silhouette portrait I have ever seen. I am no art expert but I think Sophie has the amazing ability to bring life to shadows"
"Sophie’s immense care, great talent & meticulous attention to detail is evident in all her work. For my 40th, as a single mother, I decided to treat myself to something to keep, of me & my girls - and commissioned Sophie to create a trio of black & white silhouettes, of me and my girls. (It’s such a lovely way to freeze a moment in time too, before they grow into teenagers). Their little profiles make me so happy - Sophie was even able to capture the curve of their lip and the bounce of their curly hair. They’re so unusual, everyone comments on them when visiting. (Extra bonus: they arrive beautifully mounted, framed & lovingly tissued wrapped, and are easy to put up!) I’d definitely return to Sophie for similar special gifts for special occasions. Thank you, Sophie. Every time I glance up and see my girls, I smile - they’re perfectly captured!"
The two silhouettes have just arrived (beautifully wrapped) and I am absolutely thrilled with them. You are so talented! Honestly, it’s rare that something so totally exceeds my expectations. Thank you very much for two beautiful pictures that I will treasure forever.
Jessica and her dog Maggie for her parents
