It’s Lovely.

R. G. (very emotional, tears in eyes, posthumous portrait of father to hang internationally)

The painting has arrived to its forever home at xxx. It is EXQUISITE! You went above and beyond my
expectations of everything I envisioned and wanted in a painting of our daughter. I am so incredibly
grateful to have found you… you are a true talent.  Thank you for painting this special gift. I am truly
overwhelmed.

Sonia does exquisite work and she is delightful. You will be thrilled with the results she achieves for you.

Eileen Kiley

Sonia painted a wonderful pastel landscape for me that hangs in my living room and is admired
on a daily basis. We worked together closely to bring my memories to her vision and the result
brings me great happiness every day. I sincerely recommend Sonia as a supremely talented artist and
professional who strives to make sure her patrons are more than satisfied with the result!

Helene Harris

Sonia did a fabulous job on an oil portrait of my daughter. We are delighted to have her portrait in
our home. She really captured our daughter’s spirit and does great work.

Abbie Goodman

Sonia exceeded expectations at capturing the warm feeling of a New England home that was ours
for a memorable three years. That picture immediately brings us back to great friends, neighbors,
schools, and community. What an awesome way to remember the best of the past.

Good Morning Sonia, Thanks for sending the painting of my mother. I love it ! I tried printing it on photo paper, but my printer needs adjustment to accept the heavy paper. Will keep trying as it will be a focal piece on the wall where I have a xxx memorabilia collection.

Dear Sonia  Mailing me a photograph of my mother would be much appreciated. (referring to the painting of his mother)

Beautiful. I just want to sit here with it for a while. The painting has a glow and lights up the library.
