Hi Simon

Just a quick note to say how pleased we were with your drawing of City Hall, Bride and Groom loved the picture and it will serve as a unique reminder of their wedding day.

Mr C.S. of Chard

The drawing is just great and the frame you suggested is perfect.

My husband loved his birthday present. It meant so much to him to have such a record of our new home.

'This commission was intended as a gift. From the initial enquiry to the final submission, Simon Tonkin dealt diligently and creatively with a difficult subject, having to combine several different photographs into one whole view of the building. He managed to achieve this to great effect,skillfully bringing out the essential character of the building and surroundings. The result was very pleasing and the gift well received'.

I commissioned a house portrait from Simon as a gift for a neighbour, who is moving away.  He had a rather sterile Estate Agent's photograph to work from, and the picture that Simon created captured the peace and serenity of the surroundings, the softness of the trees and garden, and resulted in a picture that would grace any drawing room.  It far exceeded my expectations.

'The house portrait you did of Vivian Barn was amazing!  As you know it was a gift for my Dad who was overwhelmed when he opened it - in fact he said it was the best present he had ever been given!  The attention to detail was incredible and I really valued your advice on which smaller parts of the original photo to leave out (like the washing line and the clutter at the front) - it really made an overall improvement to the finished portrait.  I believe Homedraw is a must for everyone who values the true beauty of the house in which they live and love. Thank you Simon!'


'Pleasantly surprised with the speedy service, competitive pricing and quality of product produced by the artist. Would have no concern recommending him. Consultancy arrangement ideal for drawings of private properties at a reasonable fee.'


'Obviously I'd love a Homedraw'
