Thanks for the beautiful portrait of our beloved Molly "Boo Boo." She was so special to us and very popular with all of our friends. Since she spent most of her time by the front door greeting visitors and students, we hung the portrait in our front hallway so everyone will still be greeted by her when they enter. You captured her spirit and beauty with great accuracy. Amazing!
— Marie VanVuuren, Greensboro, North Carolina

"My parents loved the portrait of Elise and Matthew. They have lots of artwork, but no paintings or drawings of family members. Your portrait marks the first. When my brother saw it - he said "Now that's the best present anyone could give them" and he's so right. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to honor my children and my parents with this wonderful gift."

“I am at a loss for words. Todd does amazing work—better than amazing, actually! My husband is thrilled with how Todd was able to capture his little boy's ‘wise old spirit.’ We plan on adding a dog to our little family as soon as we get settled in Oregon. If you would do me the honor, I would love to commission another portrait as a gift for my husband. Again, thank you so very much for this special treasure—we shall cherish it for the rest of our lives. Pets and purrs from us and our fur babies to you and yours.”
— Elisabeth and Rob Torgersrud, San Pedro, CA
