Tenby Bay
"I just had to write a review about April and the fantastic oil painting that she brilliantly put together for me, she helped me to decide on the best picture that would best describe the feelings that I had when I was on a family holiday to Tenby picked from photos my wife had taken. April was very attentive and explained clearly all her ideas through the process of creating the piece and I am extremely pleased with the end result, and the picture takes pride and place in my house. It was a Christmas present for my wife I knew it had to be perfect and it was. So thanks April for putting a piece of your heart into a drawing for my family we all really love it :))"

"I met April in the National Gallery and she gave me her card. I wanted something special for my new study wall as I had recently moved and was finally making a house a home. I have always admired boats. Their shapes are beautiful the idea of where to go so full of mystery. I wanted a relaxing painting. I found a photograph from a holiday in France as April suggested it should come from a happy memory. I enjoyed the process of commissioning very much. I actually learned quite a lot and April took time and care to really listen to what I wanted. I think she did a great job. It's not a slavish copy of the photograph but a unique interpretation of it and I enjoy it every day. "

Harbour Wall
"I commissioned April Barlow to create a small canvas that would elicit the essence of one of my favourite places, the harbour side at St. Ives, Cornwall. I wanted an image that was true to life yet highly individualistic and uniquely personal, which was achieved through consultations with April and by providing photographs. In addition, it's portable size has meant that it's accompanied me through various house moves and has displayed well in numerous and often compact locations. I continue to love this piece - thank you April for evoking this little piece of Cornwall so perfectly!"
