Dear Lorri-

I picked up the portrait on Friday and it turned out GORGEOUS!

Thank you for all your hard work - we'll enjoy Rocky's picture for  may years to come. I've also given your name to a friend so you may hear from her sometime soon too! 

All the best,

Alix

PET PORTRAITS OF TWO PET CAIRN TERRIERS BEST KNOWN FOR THEIR ANCESTORY WITH THE ISLE OF SKYE AND COUSIN TO THE WEST HIGHLAND WHITE TERRIER AND THE SCOTTIE

Lorri,

I just wanted to thank you for the superb portrait of Simon. It is even better now that I can see it in person. He was such a great cat it is wonderful that we have a reminder of his spirit. The color of his eyes is just perfect and it really looks like he is still with us! The portrait is now in a place of honor.  Thank you again.

Annette Tedford

P.S. If I ever can get the two dogs to settle down for a picture I will be contacting you again!

Hi Lorri,

I can't thank you enough for doing this.  I couldn't have asked for anything better at a more reasonable price.  It was a pleasure working with you.  I can't believe how quick and efficient the whole process was.  I will definitely recommend you to others!

I received Ricky's portrait yesterday, it is just stunning! My wife is going to be shocked at the beauty you have created of her very much loved Ricky. This will be the first real piece of art to hang in our home. I took it directly to the framer and she said she would have it out today, I also went an ordered a brass name tag for it, I named the painting "RICKY" Back On Duty. Again Lori, thank you so much for everything, words can not express the joy your art of Ricky will bring our family for a very long time to come. I will keep in touch.

Sincerely

Hello Lori,
  I just wanted you to know that I received Striker's large portrait.  It is WONDERFUL!!!!  You are so good!  Thank you so much.  I just dropped it off today at the framing shop.  I cannot wait to see the finished puppy portrait   I am so excited.   This will be one of the best gifts I can ever give to my parents and all because of your fantastic work.  Thank you so much.
I hope that Spooky is doing well.  Have a nice holiday season.

Lori,

I just wanted to let you know that we received the portrait on Friday. We were EXTREMELY HAPPY with it!The attention to detail is truly AMAZING !! I thought the e-mail of the picture you sent was awesome BUT it doesn’t compare to when you see the portrait in person. We didn’t get a chance to go to Michael’s this past weekend to order a frame for it but hopefully next weekend, we will make it a point to go with the portrait. I can’t wait to hang it on the wall and wait to see what everyone says.

You are extremely talented!! 

I will definitely spread the word and let everyone know how happy we were!!!!
Thanks so much again,

Debbie & Mark Luther


HI Lori:  I RECEIVED CHARLIES PORTRAIT TODAY AND I COULD NOT

THANK YOU SO MUCH,

SANDY

Hi Lori,
 
I just gave my wife the portrait you did of the two of us and she's blown away. We both are . It's really spectacular the way you captured the  tiniest of details. This may sound funny, but she really got a kick out of seeing her hair in water color!
 This portrait will be something we will always treasure. We thank you for the great care you took with it.
 Thanks very much!

Dear Lori,
 
Well, Christmas finally came and I gave the portraits of Atticus, Rosie, Sherman and Clara to my wife, Sue.She just loved them. So thanks again for doing such a nice job on them. I also showed her your "Elledesigns.com" web page with Rosie and Atticus's pictures. She had to call all her "dog" friends and tell them about it. 
Hope you had a nice Christmas.

Dear Lori:
 I am so glad that I came across your web site!! I received the picture of Max on Saturday. I absolutely love it!!! It is so beautiful. I cannot wait to give it to my nephew and his wife - don't know if I can wait until Christmas though!! I know they will be thrilled and will have this picture of their beloved Max to cherish for many years to come. I would recommend you to anyone who is thinking of having a portrait of their pet done. In fact, I will be asking you do a portrait of our three dogs in the very near future - just as soon as I get the right picture.
 
Sincerely,

Hi Lori!
I got the pet portrait painting of Riley on Wednesday and it is so amazing! It looks exactly like him and you captured his eyes perfectly. I gave it to my mom and it made her cry. You were always so great about questions, the shipping was very quick, and the painting is incredible! Thank you so much! I will recommend you to everyone I know! - Kristy

Lori,
OH MY GOSH! It looks absolutely incredible. I'm serious. You have a major gift. I did not expect it to look that great!! I just woke my husband up to show him! Kacie dog is my parents 1 1/2 year old Dalmatian. They got her from a Dalmatian Rescue Group here in Virginia last December. They are in their 60's and just had their 35th anniversary. This is going to be our gift to them. This little dog has touched their lives so profoundly ever since she moved in last year. They are going to absolutely cherish this!!!!
Thank you SOOO Much.

Lori,

Hi Lori,
 
We love the painting! It is so realistic. Sorry for the delay in writing this note, we have been in Bermuda for the last 2 1/2 weeks (we came back early due to the hurricane) and I wanted to drop you a "thank you" note when we received it.
 
I can really can't express how much we love the portrait. Thanks again.

Lori, Lori, Lori. 

We are thrilled beyond belief! I took it to my son's where he opened it and we looked at the painting - my son, a friend who did all the grooming of Spinet while she was being campaigned, and me. We all cried - you captured her completely.  Emmy, my special girl, will be the next one.
Thank you so much for a lifetime of pleasure as he looks at his baby girl.

Hi Lori,

I'm waiting for my wife to get home so I can surprise her with your portrait, but I just wanted to let you know  how great Willie and Roy look to me. She is going to be thrilled!
 
I started wondering yesterday whether you might have posted it on your site, and I found it there. I thought it looked really good online, but it's even better in person. You can make out a lot more detail in the real thing. You did a great job. I already showed several friends the online version and they're talking about contacting you. So thanks a lot.
