Hi Jane!

WOW - We absolutely love the platter with the puffins - it's stunning. Michele is already saying it's just too good to use and is looking for a pride-of-place on our sideboard display shelf for it!  Paul  UK May 2024

Hello Jane,  Your painting arrived today!  IT is SO beautiful!  I cant wait to get it formally framed and hung!

Dear Jane, 
My lovely print safely arrived towards the end of last week.
I am delighted with the colourful and beautiful print. I did have my eye on the original on your website but I was not, unfortunately, quick enough to order it!
Wishing you ongoing success and fulfillment with your beautiful painting and creative work.
With my good wishes and many thanks again, 
Elizabeth, UK January 2024  
Dear Jane,
thank you so much for my beautiful cards and tiles (one of them is propped up on my mantel shelf already), all beautifully packaged. And the Westray Wife is being mounted and framed. I'm sure I shall be ordering again!
With warmest wishes,
Lorraine, UK January 2024
Dear Jane,
I just wanted to say that the mixed media "Swallows" painting arrived just fine today here in Maine. It is larger than I imagined (no problem) and the colors are as I expected- very well done and strong. I shall enjoy gazing at it.
All the best,
Emily, USA November 2023
Hello Jane, 
The parcel has arrived safe and sound to me here in Bristol. 
It’s a beautiful print and brings out my memories of Hoy and Stromness so clearly. I am so glad you included Clestrain as I believe that is where John Rae lived, and he is rather a hero of mine.
Thank you so much for the print and I hope I can return to Orkney some day. Kind regards Sue October 2023 UK
Good afternoon Jane,
I have received my parcel, it arrived safe and promptly  today,thank you
The candle smells gorgeous, my parents will be more than happy to have this for a Christmas gift plus your lovely calendar. Plus one of your cards.They used to holiday a lot in Orkney and miss it now they’re too old to travel. With best regards,
Andrea October 2023 UK

Thank you, the cards arrived today.  They are beautiful and thanks for putting them in a box.  I looked at the boxed selections but wanted to pick my favourites so it was a lovely surprise when they arrived boxed rather than individual.  I bought them because I have several birthdays coming up, but now I don’t want to give them away – oh dear, I’ll just have to buy more! Glenda October 2023 UK

Dear Jane, Good afternoon, My tile  has arrived, it’s absolutely stunning and just crammed with exquisite details. I’m delighted with it! The packaging was outstandingly secure, I like the reused materials and the bubble wrap and tissue will be reused by us as well. Thank you so much for an excellent result. I bought two mugs a year or so ago, and despite being delicate, they have proved both robust and hard-wearing. They look as lovely as the day they arrived. Thankyou, Fiona  September 2023 UK
Thankyou so much for swiftly sending my two prints of the view to Hoy. I am delighted with both. The views remind me of my visit to Orkney this summer and one day, standing amidst the wild meadow flowers, looking over to the distance-with a great expanse of space and fresh air. With my good wishes and many thanks again. Elizabeth September 2023 UK
Hello Jane, Just to let you know that the painting is just stunning! I will be moving it around my house until I find the perfect spot for it! Thankyou so much for bringing my visit to Orkney to life again with this painting! Roberta, July 2023, USA 
Dear Jane, Thank you for sending me your e mail with photos of your marvellous new february wild sea paintings. Just most beautiful! I'm giving them some thought. I am delighted with your four unique and original candle tins, which I ordered a little while ago. I have just completed the trust pilot reviews for them. The individual and unique painting of each one is stunning, with such vibrant colours used. I love them all, although one has now been given as a gift to a dear friend. She is delighted with the originality of the unique colourful candle tin and the fresh perfume of the wax. With the box and your details provided, the candle tin makes for a perfect gift for any occasion. With my good wishes and many thanks, Elizabeth, February 2023 UK
Dear Jane, I am delighted with my recent purchase of one of your original paintings, thankyou. I love the wild white waves on the turquoise/mixed colour sea-so atmospheric. I can imagine the two birds flying close to the sea, having watched them many times over the years. The painting is hanging in my hall, offering lovely colour and interest. The three cards are all beautiful-how bright the snow behind the puffin! Elizabeth December 2022 UK   
Hello Jane, The box came today from you! I was thrilled to see it on my porch when I got home from work. I love the bangle and my daughter in law will love the pillow. She was quite taken with my print! Thank you so much! And, I hope you have a very marry christmas and a happy new year. Roberta December 2022 USA
Dear Jane, 
Belatedly, I am thanking you for the beautiful Ring of Brodgar mug which arrived safely last week. 
I am so delighted with your lovely design - the mug is now in pride of place in my kitchen. I am admiring it often! 
Also, to thank you for the careful packing, with ribbon in one of your vibrant designs and the turquoise straw padding. 
I do hope the complimentary postage is bringing in plenty of orders! I appreciated it. 
With my good wishes and many thanks again, 
Elizabeth, UK, October 2022 
Hello Jane,  Just wanted you to know  how much I am enjoying my picture.  it was waiting for me when I arrived home from my holiday in Scotland.  I was very pleased to have met both you and your sister at the store during my tour. I have tried the print in several different placed on my home but I think her over the fireplace is the best!Thank you so much for your talent and your help in getting me this lovely piece! Roberta USA October 2022
.Hi Jane, Your picture arrived safely yesterday. 
Thank you. We love the strong image and the glorious colours. 
It will be a powerful momento of our wonderful holiday. We had become interested in John Rae over the past year and when we visited Stromness Museum we were moved by your lovely collage work of Hall of Clestrain. We searched the Hall out later, and its striking location is seared into our imaginations. 
All the best and thank you for your speedy responses, 
Pam and Stan xx July 2022 
Many thanks. My print arrived today. Amazing service and it’s lovely. Its a gift and I’m sure the recipient will love it. Thank you. Mary  July 2022
Your framed picture is absolutely stunning :) We knew it would be but it’s even better than we could have hoped for. Birsay is our favourite place to visit and the colours just capture our memories on paper. Thank you so much! Also, excellent packaging…. :)
Kind regards,  Iain , Feb 2022
Thank you so much for sending me your gorgeous Orkney calendar again  this year..... it is truly lovely as ever and it will grace my walls until next year at this time!  It always gives me so much pleasure each month opening up a new picture from you... the place would not be the same without it somehow. Gwenn, January 2022 UK
Morning Jane,
Just to let you know, my Mum&Dad were thrilled with the painting of Start Point lighthouse on Sanday Island, bought back lots of happy times holidaying on there, such a beautiful island, indeed as is all of Orkney.
Andrea, Nov 2021
Dear Jane, My "Path across to the Brough of Birsay" arrived today. Just delighted, its beautiful and I'm sure that my niece will love it - hopefully it will bring back lots of lovely memories for her. I was also delighted with the ease and efficiency of the ordering and delivery service you provided. Communication was good throughout the process and the picture arrived securely packaged on the day it was due to arrive. Thank you very much Kind regards Sandra, October 2021 UK

Dear Jane, Thanks so much! Our print arrived very quickly & we are very happy, we love it. Orkney is a special place - we were lucky enough to visit a few years ago to see Westray where my Great Granny came from. Your work is wonderful & really captures the spirit of the islands. Jo, August 2021 UK

Dear Jane, Received my cards this morning, thanks Jane and I absolutely love them! Carol ex Glasgow School of Art   1965-71, July 2021 

Hi Jane,
Just to let you know my order arrived safely today. It is a beautiful painting which I plan to give to my sister & brother in law for their forthcoming 50th Wedding Anniversary .
We stayed in Stromness for a few days last month but unfortunately didn’t manage a visit to your studio.
We have visited Happy Valley a few times on our trips to Orkney & it never fails to impress.. . a truly wonderful spot.
Thank you for your prompt service
Regards Annie July 2021

Dear Jane, Thanks so much for your calendars, that arrived today. I continue to enjoy your artwork, and love that it reminds me of our wonderful trip to the Orkneys, 6 years ago!  I keep all of your old calendars, and bought many of your cards while we were there. Joyce, USA, June 2021  

Dear Jane, I’m just letting you know that the cards have arrived and I am thrilled with them. Thank you so much. Best wishes    Cath  June 2021 

Hello Jane, Many thanks for sending the Hoy cottage platter so promptly. It arrived at lunchtime. It's Jean's birthday next Wednesday, so I will be giving the present to her then. We do so love your work and will, I am sure, order from you again. Love and all best wishes Tom, April 2021

Dear Jane, Very many thanks for the package which arrived yesterday -- the platters and cards are splendid and I reckon that we may very well be ordering some more very soon. Thanks Tom, March 2021 UK

Jane, I don’t know how you do it. ‘Sunset with Terns’ arrived this morning, not tomorrow or Monday!! Do you have a private mail service? It’s beautiful - and beautifully packaged. Thank you very much. Robert  Feb 2021 UK
Dear Jane, Your cards arrived safely today Jane. Thank you so much. I'm so pleased with them, as they have lovely colours and remind me of my 2 separate day trips to the Orkneys a few years ago. Best wishes- Fiona Feb 2021 UK
Dear Jane, I realised that the picture that I loved so much in your calendar was coming to the end of the month and I decided I could'nt live without it! so I bought the large print, it is wonderful and I am now going to get it framed. Celia Jan 2021 UK
