THE CONTEMPORARY PORTRAIT

Patron Quotes

“The great thing about Andy and her work is that her love, joy, and enthusiasm for our breed and our sport literally explode off the canvas. It’s this passion for her subject that makes her work so outstandingly unique.”

Carson Kressley


Merrill and I want to thank you for the wonderful painting of "Courageous Lord." You captured the both of them so perfectly and we are thrilled to have it hanging in its "permanent" spot of honor, right over our fireplace. "Joe" will forever hold a special place in Merrill's heart and we want to thank you again for a picture that is so befiting to them both.

You are the "best," and thank you again,

My husband LOVED the painting you did of Krysten and Carter. He was so surprised and thrilled with it -- he immediately pulled out his phone and started taking pictures of it...

Thank you again for both your talent and time. You are now a part of our family, as this piece will certainly be around for generations to come.

Saying "thank you" isn't enough, but you know our gratitude is heartfelt and true.

We finally have the painting in hand, and we couldn't be happier with

the finished product. It is truly a 'prized possession' for our entire family! Even three-year-old Brody describes it as BBB-ea-UUU-TTTi-ful. We took it for my parents to see last night, and they were very happy with it, too. It is an honor to have one of your paintings in our home.

"Cagle loved her portrait and it was really funny that she had no idea what was in the package. She was thrilled to have it. I have put it up in the breakfast room [where]... we can see it from the kitchen and sunroom and are happy that we can see it all of the time. We are really enjoying it."

"YOU are A Life Saver!"

From a Morgan trainer

"My jaw dropped when I first saw the picture and was amazed how identical it looked... It was perfect and it was the best present I have EVER received!! My favorite part was how the bridle was exactly the same, with the thick nose band and that you painted his dye mark on his nose where he has a scar - that really made me laugh!"
