Testimonials

"Valori, the portrait you painted of Isabelle is so beautiful and special to me. I love it more and more every day. It has to be my favorite possession."

-Kitty White
Birmingham, AL

"I have to say the portrait is stunning. Far beyond and more beautiful than anything I imagined. Flattering beyond belief!! The painting has ample art historical precedent. It truly is as if I’ve been painted by one of the grand masters and regardless of its subject this would not be out of place hanging with the greats in a museum. Thank you."

-Jefferson Holt

"My children and I are so appreciative of your kindness and extraordinary talent and effort that you invested in these masterpiece portraits. They will hang in a place of honor in our home."

"The portrait is perfect. I just love it. Thank you so much! And thank you for making this such an easy process."

-Amy Ager
Birmingham, AL

"While painting my portrait, Valori, my wife and I had many conversations having to do with the history of art, taste in art, and various aspects of the artistic process and philosophy. Valori has a solid background of knowledge in each of these facets, so much so that I felt that I had learned much and had become a more discerning person during the process of being a subject."
