"WE SAW JANINE'S CARDS and paintings in her studio in Worth Matravers and were struck by the freshness of colour and delicacy of execution.
The only pictures we had of Worth House were old photos which were rather austere and we thought it would be lovely to have a fresh new image of the house to reflect its new life.
Janine took lots of photos and did many sketches so we were able to make informed visual choices - she then painted this panoramic view of the house (see above) and surrounding countryside with us exerting our rights of artistic license re not including other buildings etc!
The result is quite beautiful and we have also got Janine to make us up cards which we think are equally wonderful. A creative and enjoyable experience with a lasting result - much recommended."

"I COMMISSIONED THIS picture of our new house in Worth Matravers as part of a 'before' and 'after', as a first wedding anniversary present for my wife. We are delighted with the outcome. Janine went to great trouble to really capture the essence of the place and even managed to include or dog! We will definitely be asking Janine to do an 'after' picture when we finally get the house sorted out."
"Having seen Janine’s cards on display in Corfe (along with her advert in Coast Magazine), I was struck by the mixture of colour and sense of fun in her designs which makes her work so appealing and adds a bit of sparkle to every day life.
I commissioned Janine to paint a picture for my boyfriend’s 'big' birthday and sent her some pictures and a brief summary of some of the details I wanted to be included. After a few discussions and a couple of sketches, Janine produced a masterpiece which has won me a huge amount of "brownie points"! My boyfriend was taken aback with the attention to detail and is delighted with his unique piece of artwork that he will treasure for a long time.
I never met Janine throughout the whole process but, through our discussions and the photographs I sent her, she has produced something incredibly personal that means a lot to both of us. It was a pleasure to work with her and I’m sure I’ll think of something else I’d like her to paint for me before long!"
