Here is what other's had to say...

"I've commissioned Ross for four drawings over the past year. Three were portraits of my friend, her husband, and their daughter, and the other a lilac-breasted roller bird (which Ross named Amahle!). Each drawing was extremely detailed and my satisfaction with his talent, skills, and professionalism is 100% and then some. I highly recommend Ross' handiwork."
- Patti Geesey, Tennessee US
"I was thrilled to receive for Christmas, the beautifully framed painting of our very mischievous young cat Enzo by the artist Ross Buckner.  The quality of the picture is exceptional - it perfectly captures his look and is now hanging in pride of place in our home. Well done Ross!"
- June Challinger, Silverstone UK
"I lost my beautiful cat Daisy in April last year. Desperate to keep her memory alive, Ross got in touch and offered to draw her for me. I had seen his previous work and was more than impressed. So I sent him the desired photo and with my blessing he started to draw, keeping me up to date with his progress. It didn’t take long to get my beautiful drawing back and I was over the moon with the quality and his customer service. Would definitely recommend. Talented yet personable!"
- Hollie Jennings, Hungerford UK
