Over the years I have been very fortunate to get to know a lot of my customers and it thrills me immensely when I receive their hugs, thank you notes, letters of appreciation and of course photos. Sometimes I wonder who should be thanking whom more. I just want to "THANK YOU ALL!" for allowing me to be part of your life and capture your loved ones for eternity on canvas!
I have decided to create this page to share what my customers had to say. Feel free to read through ~
Often client's pick up painting and their beaming smiles says it all! I was still working on this painting, when the photo was taken.
More than not I forget to ask for a photo to be taken while a delivery is made. Fortunately someone else remembered to snap a photo.
I try to donate an original painting once a year for a good cause and picked the Shea Center for 2009.
Sometimes the little ones surprise me with little thank you notes which I especially treasure!
Oh it's just beautiful!
The pictures didn't do it justice--you've done a wonderful job.
Lillian just saw it 5 minutes ago and LOVED it!
I'm so excited to show it to my husband, you have such talent!
Thank you so very much. I've got a spot for it and will have to show it off!
" I can barely write this email my eyes are filled with tears!! Words escape me . . You have outdone yourself in every way. I am so deeply moved by this portrait! I'm not allowing Bill to see it anymore so he will be surprised by the finished portrait, but I can tell you he is going to be overwhelmed with the beauty and depth of your work. "
Many Blessings! Nancy

The painting looks so beautiful and I am so glad to see it finished. I am sure little Eshal will be so happy.
Tiffany is a professional dancer and modeled for this painting.
Oh my!! How beautiful Enzie!
"I was soooo excited to see this project come together and be a part of your amazing artwork.
I am truly honored and the final piece is so luscious....
Perfect name choice as well, what a great sensory experience all around.
You are truly gifted in so many ways!
Thank you again for capturing me in a moment of Framed Iridescence......"
Mr. Safdar, a very accomplished photographer had taken this photo of his niece and allowed me to paint her.
"I have checked your blog posts by and by to see the progress of the painting.
I am glad the painting is finished. Amal looks so beautiful!"
Mr. Kamran Safdar,
Rozie is the person who purchased this painting during the fund raising auction I organized for the UNHCR
The painting just this minute arrived - safe and sound and so so lovely! I am thrilled to bits with it. She reminds me of Sarah - a girl I met in Nairobi, Kenya in 2000. So this makes this painting even more special. The web picture did not do it justice, the colours are wonderful. Thank you, thank you - I love it. It will have pride of place here in the chaotic Hadley household.

This was sent from the photographer who took the original photo of the little Sudanese girl at the feeding center in Darfur.
She looks beautiful!
I wish the girl in red from the feeding center could see it herself!
Sometimes I ask people to model for me or send me a photo that I would like to paint. Denise is the designer and model for the headdress.
It's lovely! I can't wait to show my Mum.
Nottinghamshire, United Kingdom
OHHHHHH my goshhh, i just saw the painting again and believe me YOU ARE AN AMAZING ARTIST. I am really impressed with your perfection in painting that headdress detail. I am sure everybody who has seen that Kuchi headdress in person knows how difficult it is to paint the detail of that headdress and you have done it in un-believable perfection. Many congrates, I really appreciate your artwork.
"Wow, beautiful painting!
Morgan has changed so much since that picture was taken
it really took me back to last year."

This was written to me after an extensive workshop with my teacher and mentor Mr. Marvin Mattelson, to whom I owe a ton of gratitude for teaching me how to push myself to the next level.
Enzie, you did a spectacular job! The workshop painting of Stephanie Meyer was your most cohesive and unified painting to date, in my opinion. Also, it couldn't have happened to a sweeter person. There is a moment in each successful artist's life where they reach "critical mass", a state where all efforts begin to align and things quickly move forward. I believe that you reached this state during the workshop and I look forward to the fruits of your future labors.

What a great painting you did of Anna. It is totally her, you captured her exact expression...... I am amazed how real she looks, better than any photograph of her. I always wanted a painting of my daughter and now I finally got it. We are so happy that YOU painted her, and are VERY pleased with it. You did an unbelievable good job. I am sure we will treasure this beautiful painting through generations. Thank you so much !
Mrs. Ute Chiu ~
You caught the look in my daughter's eyes exactly, and captured the familar expression I love. She appears alive, almost as if she is about to speak. I look forward to discussing another portrait of other family members.

Sarah commissioned me to paint the portrait of this cute boxer for a friend, who missed her four legged friend.
THIS IS GORGEOUS!!!! It’s even more beautiful that I imagined it would be! THANK YOU SO MUCH! Your talent just blows me away. You have such a knack for capturing people’s and creature’s emotions in your art. I have tears in my eyes.

Enzie, I'm so touched. The Tosha's painting is great. I love it.
Toby belongs to Cindy, who saw my work during an show and commissioned me to paint her dog.
Oh my gosh! I LOVE it !! You're SO good!
Do I still have time to commission a portrait of another dog for Christmas? My sister-in-law lost her dog "Paco" last month and I would love to have you paint a picture of him.
