“I was overwhelmed with emotions when I first saw my wall portrait because my children’s personalities were captured in the portrait. It is displayed in my foyer and everyone who enters my home comments on its beauty. It brings a smile to my face every time I look at it. If my house was burning, it would be the first thing I would grab after the children. You cannot put a value on how well Susie captured my children’s personalities.”

-Lynn Heathcote Holly Springs, NC
