I found Frances on the internet and it's always a little bit of a gamble but I read her reviews and believed in her ability from the beginning. I was amazed with the quality of her work and would have no hesitation in recommending her in future. Thank you ever so much! "

"I couldn't be happier with the picture I received from Frances of my dog Marley. Marley is suffering from a long-term life threatening disease and it was important that we had something to remember him by, and boy did we find the right person! The picture she drew is very close to our hearts and she has captured every moment of the picture perfectly. It's utterly gorgeous...what a talent it looks exactly the same as the original picture I sent via email! The customer service was outstanding such a lovely person to deal with, she was happy to accommodate my needs as I needed the drawing quickly. We are so happy with our picture, worth every penny. And I'll definitely be back to have a picture done of our beloved cat! Thanks, couldn't have asked for more!!!"
Emily from Liverpool (Marley)
"I met Frances at a local craft market. I was immediately taken with all the amazing pencil drawings displayed on her table. The accuracy with each individual piece of her work made me feel I could touch the lifelike subjects. I decided that I would like to have drawing of our Chocolate Labrador, Charlie. I emailed Frances a photograph I had taken of him in a blubell wood, which she was happy to work with. We emailed regularly and I received my finished, mounted and framed drawing a few days ago, which I'm delighted with. I can recommend Frances unreservedly as an artist with integrity and professionalism."
Sue from Essex (Charlie)
"We were delighted with the portrait of our dear Remus that Frances created for us - the likeness is amazing, it's really captured his character perfectly. Also, from my initial enquiry right through to the delivery of the (very well packaged) portrait, Frances' customer service was excellent. She kept us up to speed with her progress on the piece, and checked that we would be at home on a particular day to sign for the delivery. I can't recommend her highly enough, she is a very talented artist and a lovely person too."
Rebecca from Colchester (Remus)
"The drawing is amazing - so life like and you have really captured Bruno's personality! The framing is perfect and the drawing arrived on the date requested. Frances gave me good advice to help me decide on the best picture to choose for the drawing and kept me informed of progress towards the finished drawing every step of the way. Thank you Frances my son loves his present."
Pauline from Woodbridge (Bruno)
"I have 4 of Frances' drawings and I will never tire of looking at them. The quality that went into the 4th was equal to the quality that went into the 1st. This young lady takes pride in her work and I believe that the artwork I have is an investment. This talented lady gets great pleasure out of seeing your face light up when she shows you the final result of a picture you have chosen. A picture that not only you, but anyone else that visits your home cant help but admire. Im already thinking about my next order."
Wendy from Ipswich (Giraffe)
"I asked Frances back in 2012 to produce a commission of my fathers police dog Aman. My father retired in January 2013 and having seen Frances' work at the Suffolk Show in 2012 I thought this would be a fantastic retirement gift, and I was not disappointed! Frances has a fantastic gift and captured the characteristics of our dog Aman with such fine detail. I would highly recommend Frances' work to anyone."
Sarah from Ipswich (Aman)
"Frances was commissioned to draw me a red panda, the picture is exceptional in its detail, expression & realism and has pride of place on my wall! She has an outstanding talent and deserves to continue being successful in her career."
Jack from London (Red Panda)
"Frances created a beautiful piece that really captured the individual personalities and characters of our pets through her impressive attention to detail and the level of precision in her drawings; I still can't get over the way she's managed to draw the individual scales and eyelashes of the reptiles and the fact our bunny has the exact look in her eye that she has in real life! Throughout the process Frances was so helpful in advising on the composition of the piece, providing updates as it came along and the final drawing made for an absolute incredible gift and was beautifully presented. I would highly recommend - you don't get a drawing of animals that look like your pets you get a drawing that truly captures them and there individualities!"
Bex from London (Diversity)
"I wanted to get a drawing done of our family dog as a surprise present for my wife. A relative, who is very involved in the local art scene, recommend that I speak to Frances Vincent because, in his words, ‘her pencil drawings of animals are truly exceptional’. Having recently received the finished drawing I can only agree wholeheartedly with that assessment! From the first conversation Frances made the whole process very straightforward and was in constant communication with me. My wife adored the drawing as soon as she saw it and suffice to say we would both highly recommend Frances to anyone else who is looking to get a top quality drawing made of a pet or other animal."
Martin from Ipswich (Dex Dexter)
"What a fantastic artist!! We met Frances at a local craft fayre, and were amazed at her drawings; so life like. My husband and I thought it would make a perfect Christmas gift for a member of our family; we provided a photo and couldn't wait for the result.... Well what we received was totally amazing, identical to the photograph we provided to Frances, it looked fab, all framed and ready to be gifted... and yes they loved it! We would highly recommend your work to anyone. Thanks Frances."
Clare from Ipswich (Alfie and Marnie)
"We are so pleased with the drawing that Frances did for us. It is a very true likeness of our dog and a wonderful keepsake. All of our friends and family who see it comment on the likeness and how brilliant the picture is. It now has pride of place on the wall. Frances was extremely helpful and the customer service she offers is very good. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her work to anybody."
Tess from Ipswich (Saffi)
"I wanted to say a huge thank you for the drawing you done for me. I am privileged to own a piece of your art work as it's absolutely outstanding. I would highly recommend your work to all. Thank you"

"This beautiful drawing of Lottie was a Christmas present. Frances was very professional from start to finish and I would thoroughly recommend her. "
Rosemary from Woodbridge (Lottie)
"We are really delighted with the drawing that Frances has done of our cat ‘Neville’. She has, quite amazingly, completely captured his character in the drawing which is also very accurate in every detail. We would warmly recommend her talent to everyone who may be interested in having their pet drawn by her. The drawing was produced within the timescale agreed and delivered personally – I could not have asked for better service!"
Geraldine from Ipswich (Neville)
"After quite a bit of research and various enquiries I decided upon Frances to commission a portrait of our 2 dogs Jet and Pippa. I wanted to give this as a present to my husband on our first wedding anniversary as a special memory of Jet in particular as she sadly passed away in April.
Frances was fantastic at communicating with me from my first enquiry through to ensuring the picture had arrived safely with me and I was pleased with it. ‘Pleased’ is an understatement – I am absolutely delighted with the outcome and so was my husband when he unwrapped it at the weekend! I cannot put into words just how well Frances has captured both the likeness and the personality of both Jet and Pippa, it really is a carbon copy of the photograph I gave to Frances – and in fact even better!
I requested for the picture to be mounted and framed by Frances as well, and she had a lovely soft grey surround that complements our living room walls very well. The frame and glass was very well packaged and arrived immaculately in very good time.
I would highly recommend Frances to absolutely anyone who was looking for a commission of their pet. She is an extremely skilled artist - the level of detail that you see in her drawings is really incredible and can only be achieved through her time, care and engagement with the story behind the portrait.
I have had so many positive comments from friends and family on our portrait already and I am just so, so pleased that I chose Frances- Thank you! ‘
Felicia from London (Jet and Pippa)
"I asked the lovely and very talented Frances for a commissioned drawing of my pussycat Mew Mew, after meeting at Euston Hall Country Fair. I cannot put into words how emotional I have felt since receiving my exquisite drawing, I look at it everyday. Seeing it on the website fills me with pride every time I recommend Frances' work. Frances has spent at least 30 hours on my drawing, it's simply been made with love"
Frances from Hertfordshire (Mew Mew)
"I first heard of Frances when I read an article in the local newspaper. A few months later I did want to get a drawing done, but couldn't find the article, so trawled search engines looking for her. Eventually I found her and commissioned her to draw "Breeze". I was blown away by the amazing aptitude that Frances has in portraying not only the look of the animal, but she captured the personality of the animal. I didn't know that this was possible to do.
My partner had a really lovely natured "rescued" Doberman and I once again asked Frances to draw her. I had moved further away, and actually didn't have a lot of free time, so , knowing and trusting Frances, I sent her photos in an email of "Daisy". The result was outstanding. The whole persona of the drawing was magnetic - it just captured Daisy's personality perfectly and once again her owner was blown away by the amazing drawing. Sadly Daisy has passed away now, but she is displayed on the wall and everyone that knew her comments on the drawing. They can't believe that it is "just a drawing".
Thank you Frances for enriching the pet owners lives - enabling them to remember their beloved dogs for eternity."
Nina from Essex (Breeze, Daisy, Jazz & Tibs, Molly)
"Having seen Frances Vincents drawings featured in the Art Marquee at the Tendring Show I requested a contact address. I sent Frances several pictures of my sons dog....not the easiest challenge. Frances said she could undertake the commission and I ordered the smallest size. The drawing arrived on time delivered on time and my only regret is that I did not order a larger drawing as it is wonderful and truly admired by everyone. I have friends that I feel confident will be in touch to have there pets drawn as she has captured our Labrador Cleo's personality and features perfectly."
Alex from Colchester (Cleo)
"Thank you very much for the fantastic picture of Sem you drew for me. I have it on the wall above the TV where I can see it every day. I have shown it to all my friends & neighbours who say how life like it is & some even thought it was a photograph. So once again many thanks for something I will always cherish."
