Testimonials for Kelli’s Artwork

Comments from Satisfied Customers:

 

Hello Kelli,

A few months ago I had the idea to create a special art piece for my wife. I have dragged her to many locations over the years and we lived in a number of different houses. I thought it would be interesting to create a permanent memory of the homes of our life. I am so thankful that I found you via a Google search to work on this project.

Six custom portraits of homes framed

As you can see in the attached photo, the end product turned out amazing thanks to your talent. I surprised my wife with an early Christmas gift and she was dumbfounded, happy and amazed all at the same time. She even shed a few tears.

We now have this special piece as a center point in our home. We are so thankful for you and your amazing talent. You have given us something we will treasure forever.

Best Regards,
Jim Rulseh Salem, WI

I contacted Kelli after seeing some of her artwork that turned up in a Google search on the Internet. There was one particular drawing that caught my eye and I asked her if she could do something similar for a logo for our Virginia winery. I am very particular and hard to please. Very few people fulfill my expatiations. Kelli surpassed them.

I had a vague idea of what I was looking for in a logo but no specifics. In our initial conversation I am sure I told her more about what I didn’t want as opposed to what I was looking for. She took my nebulous vision and gave me several suggestions. Within a few days, she sent me her first batch of proofs. There were about twelve and there was not a single one that I didn’t like. Kelli designed logos that I could never have imagined. Even if I had artistic ability and could draw a logo, I could not have thought of these designs. The hardest part was choosing among her designs.

Grey Horse Vineyards logoWe narrowed it down to two and told Kelli what we liked about both. She took the elements that we like and combined them into a single perfect logo. Again, this is something that we could have never envisioned on our own. Kelli then went beyond drawing the perfect logo. She even worked to reformat our chosen text font to perfectly complement our logo. The attention to detail was something that I rarely encounter.

After choosing our primary logo and text, I spoke with Kelli about acquiring rights to use one of her other designs. After all, they were that hard to choose among. In addition to our “official” logo, we chose to purchase one of her other proposed designs. This design is a variation of our chosen logo and will blend perfectly in our promotional and marketing campaign. In short, I did my research and knew what I was going to spend on a custom logo. What I didn’t know was that I was going to be fortunate enough to work with someone like Kelli. She was very attentive and responsive. There was never a time in the process that I was left wondering what was going on. This is the first recommendation that I have felt compelled to write in my forty years of doing business. I simply cannot recommend Kelli highly enough. If anyone has persisting doubts as to Kelli’s talents, please feel free to contact me at jay@greyhorshevineyards.com.

Kelli, I received the drawing and took it to get it framed. I am absolutely stunned at how beautiful it is. The house looks exactly like what I remember right down to the lion and the brain rock by the bush. Thank you so much for drawing this. My brother is going to be blown away!

Working with Kelli to develop my business logo was a pleasure from the start of the process. She listens and executes quickly and with a lot of thought to provide great options. The process was exciting because Kelli offered enthusiasm in addition to an artist’s eye in developing a logo until I was completely satisfied with every detail. Thanks Kelli for your professionalism on my project! [UPDATE 3-31-14: “I’m still entirely proud of my logo after 3 years. Slowly but surely my brand is growing. You really hit a home run capturing the energy and essence of my business. Thanks again for your prompt professional service!”

I wanted to let you and your future customers know about my wonderful experience with you. I had never ordered any piece of art from anyone before, so I was quite nervous about ordering one. I was afraid you wouldn’t be able to capture Smokey in the way I had imagined in my mind. You did the total opposite of everything I thought. Kelli listened to my stories about Smokey and listened to how I wanted my portrait done. She always responded so quickly which I loved. I was not just left in the dark wondering what was going on. When I recieved my portrait it took my breath away. I was completely amazed at how magnificent it is. She captured every detail, even a small scar by his eyel! She got the exact expressions and look in his eye as he still has everyday. I look at the portrait and can’t believe I have something so beautiful. This portrait will be a wonderful thing to honor him by when his time comes and I am so glad I got it. If you are considering getting a portrait from Kelli don’t consider, just do it. You will not be dissapointed! Thank you so much Kelli for all your hard work and patience.

Sincerely,
Tricia, USA

Hello Kelli Swan - Your wonderful Doberman pinscher note cards arrived here just a minute ago. They are breath-taking! They look much better in real than on the online images. You are a very very gifted artist. We do not find the right words in our dictionary to describe these wonderful drawings. There are not enough expressions to praise your talent and skill. We are “speechless”. We are very delighted and happy with this buy. We would like to say THANK YOU for shipping internationally and for your wonderful packaging. All the best to you, good luck and success, good health and a long and prosper life.

Best wishes and kindest regards,
Ingo from Germany

Hi Kelli - We received the artwork today and it just took our breath away! Actually, I had tears in my eyes while looking at it for the first time. You are so talented. We cannot thank you enough for these beautiful drawings. We already know where we are going to hang a set of prints. And it will take us a while to figure out where to hang the originals. We want them to have a very special focal point in our home. Thank you again.

Sincerely,
Laura and Ron Srsa

I have thoroughly enjoyed working with you! As an architect, I am often in the position of finding the sometimes very delicate balance between offering my opinion and guidance on a project, and incorporating what the customer wants and/or think they want in a project. It has been great to work with a fellow professional who is easy to talk to, gives great advice, and yet listens to the customers’ wants and needs. I am very excited to have my own logo that I can proudly use in all of my business related correspondence and promotional materials. Thanks once again for all of your help and hard work!

Best regards to you and your family,
