Customer Testimonials

JENNIFER & GARY – CLARK, NJ, USA

“Working with Barb on this commission was flawless. She does everything possible to ensure that she creates your vision and maintains an open dialogue throughout the process. The portrait she created for us is special for many reasons. It puts a huge smile on our faces every day. We have it displayed prominently in our living room for everyone to see. We cannot say enough good things about working with Barb. Truly a pleasure!”




BRIANNE – EDMONTON, AB, CANADA

“I reached out to Barb in the early part of 2016 asking if she would be interested in creating a turtle painting for me. I was expecting my first son that year and I really wanted something to commemorate this special time. I have a soft spot for sea turtles and she took my idea and blew me away! I absolutely loved and still love the painting. When I look at it I can still feel all the excitement leading up to becoming a first-time mom and expanding my family. I will definitely be reaching out to her again very soon for another creation. Barb, thank you for your talent, your kindness, and your beauty!  You have given me something I will treasure forever.”

 


MATT – CALGARY, AB, CANADA

“I commissioned Barb to do a drawing of my grandfather’s old ’68 Chevy from a photo I took of it when it was still back home in Manitoba. The detail is ridiculous and it looks even better in person. The truck has been in my family for three generations and this is now a lovely memory of what it was before taking it all apart to rebuild into a truck for myself. Barb is extremely talented! Thank you for making this awesome memory that means so much to me and my family.”

 

 


JAMIE – CALGARY, AB, CANADA

“Before my husband and I got married I commissioned a charcoal drawing for him. Barb was extremely professional and kept me up to date on the process, layout, and options for framing. The piece was incredibly well done, and her talent shone through. My husband was in awe and absolutely blown away by the attention to detail and description card she included with the piece. She also painted a piece in celebration of our wedding. It beautifully depicts the location where we got married and the colours Barb used would make anyone swoon. Whether you commission Barb for a fun drawing, memorable painting, or custom piece you will not be disappointed. She will take your ideas and make them come to life!”

She was great to deal with and her communication throughout the process was excellent. She always ensured I was happy before moving forward and made all deadlines as promised. Barb, your talents are amazing! Thank you so much!”

 

 


AMANDA – EDMONTON, AB, CANADA

“I have commissioned 3 sugar skulls from Barb. All have been amazing. I gave her a general colour palette and theme and let her imagination run away with an idea. She knocked it out every time! I highly recommend art by Barb. She is unbelievably talented and professional. My skull’s name is Valentina and is music themed. I have it in my entranceway. Love it! ❤”

 

 


FAYELYNN – ABBOTSFORD, AB, CANADA

“Barb has done two custom pieces for me and they both completely exceeded my expectations. She’s incredibly talented and beautifully captured exactly what I was looking for with amazing attention to detail. I look forward to more Barb Sotiropoulos pieces in our home.”

 

 

 


MIKE – SPRUCE GROVE, AB, CANADA

“A few years back Barb was doing these custom sugar skulls and I thought that they looked amazing and I had to have one. I reached out to her on Facebook and asked if I could have her make me one. I am a big Tragically Hip fan and love the song “Nautical Disaster”. She wanted to give me what I wanted and asked all the right questions. The final product could not be more perfect. Her care and attention to detail shows her love for art. I love the skull and it is on display in my living room.”

 


LAUREL – CALGARY, AB, CANADA

“I commissioned Barb to help with an idea I had in my head that I wanted to be turned into a statement piece of art. Barb took all of the ideas and colours I asked for and turned them into this One-of-A-Kind statement piece of art in my home. And thus A New York State of Mind was created. Barb’s talent for taking ideas and turning them into art is simply amazing!! Everyone who sees this piece in my home asks where I purchased it, and I love responding “you can’t purchase this at a store”. If you are looking for new, and creative art, I highly recommend Barb as she is not only a talented artist, she is extremely professional to work with.”
