A selectION OF FEEDBACK received from my lovely customers.


" I can never thank you enough for the gorgeous pastel portrait of my Border Collie. You have captured so accurately his loving temperament, it is like just looking at him. It is so lifelike! Thank you so much for all your hard work and look forward to having more portraits painted of my dogs." 

Anne Q- West Midlands

" Thank you so much Jonathan for painting such a fantastic portrait of our lovely dog. The likeness is truly amazing, the picture is so life like, it could easily be mistaken for a photograph. I absolutely love it and takes pride of place on our living room wall. Once again, thank you for such a brilliant piece of artwork."

Darren & Julie- Bath & North East Somerset

" Jonathan's painting captured our Labradoodle's personality and soul just perfectly. We cannot recommend Jonathan highly enough; from the very first contact the communication and ordering process were easy and the entire experience was overwhelmingly positive. Thank you Jonathan for your amazing work "

Ryan and Chris- South Wales

" I found Jonathan very professional, prompt with email responses and kept me informed with the work in progress to the finished brilliant piece of artwork. My family and especially my Dad who the commission was for, are over the moon with the finished painting. Jonathan captured the lifelike characteristics of our dog working from photographs. It feels like Oliver could step off the painting and come to life! I would not hesitate to recommend Jonathan to anyone looking for an artist who wants memories of their beloved friend committed to paper. Thank you so much Jonathan"

Emma P - Bristol

" Jonathan did not disappoint when we asked him to paint a watercolour painting of the DH Rapide and DH Dove aircraft in their original 1950's colours as owned and operated by Fox's Glacier Mints Ltd. The painting hangs in our hallway and is much admired by visitors. The painting will be a constant reminder of the many hours flying in both these lovely aircraft. Thank you so much Jonathan! "

Reggie & Jill Dickinson- Leicestershire

" Jonathan has created a fabulous work of art for us. It's a moment in time captured; our Piper Malibu in clear skies over the Severn Bridges. It is a flight our family has been lucky enough to make often in reality; and it is great to be reminded artistically of those happy special times together whenever we look up to Jonathan's painting. We would highly recommend Jonathan's artwork; it's compelling and simply elevating! "

Steven Day- Wilts

" I was most impressed when I saw Jonathan's painting. It was exactly what I intended. What I find impressive with Jonathan's artwork is that it is not just a pictorial representation of an aeroplane. The ambiance is such that when I look at the painting, I am transported back to the cockpit whilst flying the Zlin over the Czechoslovakian town. Thank you very much! "

Geoff Dobson- East Sussex

" Jonathan has been painting several maritime ship commissioned paintings in both pastels and watercolours. They are all outstanding pieces of artwork and Jonathan's attention to detail and impressive artistic skills makes each and every one of them special in their own way from military ships and civilian ocean lines. Jonathan guides you every step of the way in completing each project. I have always been very happy with the end results and take great pride in displaying his artwork in my home gallery. I have much praise for this artist and would certainly highly recommend Jonathan to others."

R Salta- New Jersey, USA

“To say I’m delighted with the pastel portrait of our Dachshound is an understatement! The painting is quite beautiful and I could not be happier with it. Please accept my sincere gratitude for your patience and diligence in all your dealings with me, it has been an unqualified pleasure dealing with you. Thank you so much Jonathan.”

D Jones- North Yorkshire

‘‘We were looking for an artist to paint a portrait of our dog and searched for many hours on the internet viewing many works by different artists and finally opted for Jonathan Margetts to do the commissioned work. WOW, we were delighted with the painting of our much loved dog Broden. We would not hesitate to recommend Jonathan for your pet portrait. In one word, stunning! Thank you so much Jonathan.’’
