"This is the first time I have commissioned a work of art, and was not totally sure what to expect. I must say I was pleasantly surprised, as I was included throughout the process of the creation! Brenda has wonderful suggestions, and is receptive to ideas as well. Working with her made the portrait all the more special in addition to her exceptional talent!"
"Brenda did our first home rendering for us 20 years ago, after we purchased our first home. It has had atreasured place in our living room ever since. Later, we had her do another one of a friend's new home as a surprise Christmas gift for them.
Recently, I chose Brenda again, for an oil portrait of our dog, Lily, as a birthday surprise for my wife. She was thrilled with it, and everyone has told us how wonderful it looks. We won't always have Lily with us, but we will always have this fine portrait to remember her by.
The process with Brenda is really easy. I sent her several photographs, and then she asked for some more specific views. Then she sent me shots of the work-in-progress as it went from layout to completion. I'd definitely recommend Artistic Remedies by Brenda to anyone!"
"I recently requested a drawing of Anna, our dear family dog of 16 years, for my husband's birthday. She passed away 5 months ago so I wanted this picture to be special. That is was! Brenda's attention to detail and desire to capture the essence of Anna was amazing. It looks just like her down to her expression and bend of her ears. I could not have been more pleased with the result. Brenda is talented and a joy to work with. She is timely in responses, kept me up to date on the progress and delivered a wonderful product. You will not be disappointed."
"Brenda does very impressive work. She was able to take a number of photos that we emailed to her and quickly develop an accurate depiction of a sentimental homestead that was true to form. Details were captured in a way that made the pencil drawing absolutely beautiful."
"I contacted Brenda to do a home rendering for my mom. I had photos of the fall season, but wanted the rendering done for spring as that’s my mom’s favorite time of year. We discussed the layout, the colors, and a few other details that I knew would be important to my mom. Brenda communicated so well during the whole process, often sending daily updates for review or adjustment. She puts remarkable effort with much attention to detail into her work and is just an incredibly talented, creative and skilled artist."
"I am so pleased with how my order turned out. The '57 Chevy Bel Air looks as though it's ready to drive off the page. A wonderful piece of art by a wonderful person! Thanks so much, Brenda!"
"Five years ago my parents realized their dream of lakeside living. I knew this would make the perfect gift for them. There was some tweaking required to have the water and all of the house in the drawing, but the finished product blew me away. My parents were so surprised, and were moved to tears. Because ARBB uses standard size paper, I was able to present it to them framed without having to pay for custom framing. It really is the perfect gift for the 'person who has everything'."
"The portrait arrived today! Love it! Just like when I go to the art museum. The original is the best. Thanks again! I am sharing your page with all of the comments. Add me to your fan base!"
"The artist did a GREAT job at listening and understanding our desires and wants. They took the time to keep us informed of their progress along the way, and delivered the finished product exactly on time, as promised. We could not be more pleased with the result. Thanks, Artistic Remedies, for a great Etsy experience!!"
"We are speechless. No words to describe how blown away we are with the countless details you have captured. Hard to believe this picture is drawn from ink - so realistic.You have truly been gifted (which we knew), but when it's your home, it takes on a very different perspective. All that to say, we can't thank you enough for sharing your amazing talent and creating this wonderful memory for our family. So, so many memories made at [this address]. We will hang our home rendering proudly."
"We picked up the drawing of our house today and we love it! You did a marvelous job and we will definitely recommend your work. Thanks so much."
"I'm absolutely overwhelmed in the best of ways. It's just incredible. Absolutely incredible. I can't wait to show [my wife]!!! We will cherish it forever . . . you give our house the very peace with a drawing that we feel inside it!"
"Brenda rendered a beautiful representation of the home in which I grew up. Then, after typing up a letter to my parents that included about 20 different memories of my childhood, I gave the whole thing to them for Christmas. Best Christmas present ever! The room was silent for a bit as they choked up reading the letter. The time we shared reminiscing was worth every penny spent. It sure beat anything I could have bought from a store. Mom and Dad felt so appreciated."
