"I asked Naomi to draw this for me as a present for someone. She listened to my specific requests and ideas and produced this beautiful pen and ink drawing. What I love most about her work is the exquisite detail but I also love how she captures the spirit of the animal, they seem more alive than some drawings I have seen. I loved the drawing so much, I kept it for myself and have asked for another one! Thank you for sharing your talent."

"I have it already! Thank you; that was very fast.
It's actually for a colleague of mine who is retiring. I've just shown it to the rest of my team and we all agree it's beautiful and she will love it. Thanks again!

"The print has arrived safely, thank you. It has a prominent position in our sitting room. My wife and I were brought to Mini Gallery by a solitude greeting card, which she bought at Waterstones. We are very pleased with the giclee print. We hadn't anticipated such high quality, the colours are beautifully rich and deep."

['Solitude' by Laura Wilson]
"The painting is awesome and hung on the wall, it has really become the focal point of the front room and my wife and I find ourselves staring at it all the time. It is amazing how the colours and shades change during the day and our little girl takes great delight whilst pointing at the picture.
We both really appreciate the work and time involved and can't wait to visit the gallery one day, until then all the best and thanks again."

['Siamese Cats' by Dianne Heap]
"Just to let you know I received my two paintings this morning: 'Horses Drinking in the River Mole' and 'Bembridge Marina, Isle of Wight'. They arrived safe & sound, very well packaged up indeed. I admit there's always a bit of a concern buying valuable and fragile items like paintings over the internet but in your case I needn't have worried. I would have no doubts at all about buying from you again or about recommending you to other people. The Mini Gallery website you use is very good too. As for the paintings themselves, I have to say they are both really lovely. The Bembridge painting is for me - I love the detail and bright colours in that one - whilst the horses drinking painting is a surprise for my friend's 30th birthday in September. I hope she likes it! I'm sure she will; it was her who put me onto your galleries on the Mini Gallery website initially, and also highlighted that painting as one of those she particularly liked. P.S. Thank you for the greetings cards! Totally unexpected and a very nice touch."

['Hong Kong Lights' by Derrick Fielding]
"Just to let you know that the picture has arrived safe and sound and that we love it. It is very vibrant and fresh looking and will take pride of place above the fire place. It makes a great centre-piece. Thank you for your hard work and creativity as well as being so responsive. It's a lovely piece of art and we are very pleased."

"I just wanted to let you know that I recieved your painting 'Home Comforts' today as a gift. I am thrilled. It is quite possible that it is one of the best presents that I have ever recieved. It is uncannily like my own dog 'Lurky' . Your artwork & sculptures are absolutely beautiful. Thank you so much."

"We're delighted with the latest two paintings we've just bought from Janette - 'Inland Waves' and 'Sandsend Stripes' - so well packaged , as usual. They're so clear and colourful. They are a gift for our daughter and son-in-law and would fit any style of decor. We're sure they will like them."

['Liberty' and 'Freesia Trio' by Janette Boskett]
"I met Demi during an open studio period, Demi's paintings are excellent, tho none were for me. Demi had drawn a picture of her daughters and I asked if she could do one of Molly for me. Nobody could be happier, if you could see the photo Demi drew from, you could compare and see for yourself what a fantastic job she has done. If you ever want a portrait commissioned, then give Demi a call, I promise you will not be disappointed. Demi is extremely talented, the attention to detail is incredible, I can not praise her enough, so come on, go for it and call her up."
Ian, Hampstead Norreys 4th August 2012
['Molly' by Demi Lang]
"You weren't kidding when you said it looked even better in real life!! The word 'WOW' and 'brilliant' have been used a lot this morning. It is absolutely beautiful. It's already up on the wall and perfectly measured into place with a spirit level! Thank you very much from us both. We're hoping we can purchase another painting from you in the future. Thank you also for the cards, we actually mounted and framed the previous four you kindly sent us, and all four have been put on the wall together."
Colin, Essex 20th July 2012
['Warwick Castle - the Mound 2' by Derrick Fielding]
"The painting arrived yesterday afternoon safe and sound. It felt like Xmas came early when we opened it last night. It now has pride of place hanging on my dining room wall. We are over the moon with it, even though it caused some serious arguments as to where it looked best!"
