Hello Suzanne, I have visited Needham Market Exhibition this morning and had a feeling that you would be there again, I mean your artwork. Ohhh, they are so beautiful.  I bought another two artworks for my collection.  I love the birds so much, I can't wait to pick them up on Monday.

Hi Sue

Your new sketch is fine thanks, I can't wait to see the final painting!.  Mum and Dad loved Drummer Boy, my Mum goes to art classes and is very envious of your talent.  My sister was really chuffed with her Great Tit slate, she wasn't expecting it, which made it better.

This came on the back of a commission request and referred to the paintings and slate bought in November.

 Hi Sue

So delighted with my churn, I posted it on my Gardeners' Question Time Group. I wanted to tell you that everyone loved the churn and have asked for your website details, which I have now sent to them.  I hope that is okay?  I have also been asked to pass on all the wonderful compliments of your work to you.  

Best wishes

Hello Suzanne

You may be pleased to hear that your Wheatear Reflection has found a happy home in Lavenham.  It's absolutely delightful.  I do hope my daughter Jane, also an artist, will forgive me!.  

Very best wishes.

Do you know what?  I am most impressed with your wildlife artistic skills.  I have a passion for nature paintings especially by G F Tunniecliffe, your detail is on a par with the great man himself in some of your paintings.  I think you have surpassed him.  You are so lucky to have this artistic talent.  Thank you so much for sharing your work.

We're definitely, positively certain about both paintings.  Funnily enough, I e-mailed my Mum yesterday and she's just written back saying how lovely Pippin is!    They'll love the Great Spotted Woodpecker (Little Drummer Boy) then.  I have seen pictures of your work on either All Things Bird Watching or British Facebook Birders. In fact that's when I saw Pippin a couple of months ago and loved him.  I am a really keen birder and Nuthatches are second only to Short Eared Owls for me, in terms of the most amazing birds to see.   I'd imagine I will be commisssioning something from you in the future - one of your triples perhaps!  What I like most about your pictures is that the foliage/background is just as good as the birds.

Our beautiful wedding barrels are out to bring happiness on this moody day.  Suzanne Perry Art has done an amazing job on the old barrels I gave her.  Looking gorgeous, adorned with our home grown pumpkins and dahlias.

Lauren

This was the most unusual commission, two barrels were painted across thier middle section for Lauren's wedding in July 2018.  There were two themes, garden birds and river birds, and the barrels stood pride of place at the entrance to the Reception Marquee

Hi Sue

Just to let you know that I have received the picture, it's just as beautiful as displayed on your website.  I am delighted with it.  Thank you so much for the cards you put in, they too are lovely.  My husband loves it as well, a nice addition to our new home.

Hi Sue

The churn arrived today, it's absolutely beautiful, I love it so much, the cards you put in are stunning as well.  I really love your work you are so talented, thank you so very much, I'm so pleased.  If I send you a picture of a starling would it be possible to paint him on a card with a Christmas hat on, as I would love to have a few with him on if possible?

My two framed and your other wall mounted pictures will be cherished.  Indeed I cannot stop looking at them.  I have two others on adjacent walls - the " Quartet " looks great!

Hi Suzanne – My wife and I visited the Brett Gallery at Monks Eleigh yesterday (27th June) after the half day experience of Falconry at the same venue. To say I was blown-away by your beautiful bird paintings would be no understatement. We purchased 8 paintings (2 originals, 6 prints) also a kingfisher keepsake box. I would be very interested in more of your paintings after a visit to your website.  Example, love Hector the owl, would love that one as I adore high-quality owl paintings. Your style and skill immediately grabbed my attention and hopefully will give me years of pleasure. Would, or do you paint 'special' orders for originals? I would love a pair of snowy owls similar – but clearly not identical – to the picture I have attached to a separate email.......a pair of snowys sitting on a low dead tree stumps with a backdrop of a an eerie wood lit up in twilight by a beautiful full moon. Although I like the picture I have, I would love a similar item in your highly detailed style as an original. The snowy is such a beautiful bird and deserves the 'Perry' hand and touch. I would need a landscape format with a picture size of around 24 x 18 (excluding frame). The pictures are simply wonderful and please keep up your brilliant work.  It would be a privilege to meet you and thank you in person for such delightful art pictures of Britain's lovely birds.

Many thanks and best regards Mike and Suzanne Smith (and keep up the excellent work).

Some years ago I was very ill in an isolation hospital.  I awoke one night to see a beautiful owl on the window ledge (window was open) looking right at me.  I felt safe, whereas before his presence I felt fear about the situation I was in.  Since then I have had an affinity with owls.  I see them as my protectors and I particularly adore their soulful eyes.  Your painting ( Tawny Owl, Hector ) is magical and looks virtually identical to my protector that night, thank you for your artistry, truly magical.

Hi Sue

Love the Yellowhammer, thank you, it's one of my favourites.

Hi Suzanne

Thank you for your prompt framing of the print ( see below ), I am very pleased with the final result and must now get round to hanging it alongside the kingfisher.
Many thnaks.
Peter
  
When we were in Suffolk in March 2017 we called at Brett Gallery, ( part of Corncraft ) and were taken by your pictures on display. My sister in law purchased for my birthday the Kingfisher on Bullrushes print which we now have framed and hanging in our lounge. We were in Suffolk again last week and called again at Brett Gallery and at the time I was unable to decide on the purchase of another of your prints and intended to call back again before returning to Lincolnshire, unfortunately we were unable to get back there during opening times. I am very taken by the Earful of Waxwings print and would be obliged if you would list me with details of the costs, including postage of obtaining a print. Also if I decided to obtain a framed print whether there would be a choice of frames available as I would like to match this one with the one previously acquired.
Regards
Peter

Dear Sue

A special "Thank you" for a super job.  I was also very pleased with the way your paintings are framed. They really set the pictures off well...... which is very important when you have spent time producing a lovely painting. I will let you know how our friend Alli reacts to it!  I am especially pleased to have a copy as I have always wanted to own one of your pictures!  Thank you to your partner as well, for printing my one copy.

With kind regards

Will

As you will see from the notes in my Birds of Prey Gallery, Alli was equally delighted.

Suzanne painted the Wren Elizabeth box for my granddaughter who was christened today.  I can't thank Suzanne enough for the beautiful box, she has seemed like a personal friend.  My granddaughter couldn't have had a nicer box, it's totally stunning, Suzanne is an amazing painter.  Thank you so much, I will be back for more.  

Lotsa love and best wishes from Dina

Absolutely love the Teal picture.  A special thank you for the cards too, they are delightful.

Best regards Sarah

 

October 2017

I would like to purchase a mounted print of "Lazing on a sunny afternoon" Teal.

It is for an anniversary gift for my boyfriend's parents so I would need it as soon as possible as I have left everything to the last minute.  We already own one of your kingfisher prints that I purchased at Suffolk Show.  Do contact me if you are doing any new prints on the kingfishers.  I would like one to go with the Twilight one that we have, but possibly facing the other way.
Best regards Sarah.

 

September 2017

Suzanne has painted a box for my granddaughter, Wren.  The box is beautiful, I can't thank Suzanne enough, her work is outstanding and as a person she is amazing to deal with,  she has kept me updated all the way through.  Thank you so much Suzanne, I'll be back for more.

Kind regards Geraldine

Painting of robins and old kettle.

"Back in October we bought an original Suzanne Perry painting of two robins on a wall from the Brett Gallery at Bridge Farm Barns. We were so pleased that we contacted Suzanne direct and commissioned a second painting for my wife's Christmas present. Suzanne is very easy to talk to and we discussed what we would like featured in the second painting. A few days later an initial sketch was emailed for approval. We were very happy with the sketch and couldn't wait to see the finished painting. The finished masterpiece was ready for collection before Christmas and is now proudly on display with the other painting.

If you like Suzanne's style of painting and have something particular in mind I would definitely recommend talking to her about a commission. I'm sure you will not be disappointed, we were not."

The beautiful French Milk Churn.

I met this lovely lady artist called Suzanne Perry at my place of work, The Brett Gallery, Monks Eleigh in Suffolk.

She had been displaying some of her works in our Gallery since it opened.  Her art is beautiful. One day I noticed, amongst other gems displayed outside "Sarah's Attic", shop a French milk churn.  I then had an idea!  I wondered if it would be possible for Suzanne to paint a beautiful bird scene on it for me. I asked if she would consider it, she seemed interested and said it would be a challenge.  

A few weeks later, and to my surprise, she presented me with this beautiful churn, displayed with her artwork.  I am now the proud owner of a stunning French milk churn and it holds proud of place  in my lounge, too good to be palced on the doorstep.  Thank you Suzanne x 

Mary

My wife and I recently visited Brett Gallery in Suffolk and purchased two prints of yours, the Barn Owl and the Kingfisher, we also purchased an Original of yours, the Hobby "On The Rocks". Please as punch with all of them but obviously the Original in particular.

Some other pictures have been relegated to the stairs and yours hang proudly in our lounge.

Hi Suzanne

I have just have to tell you how much pleasure your lovely box "The Boys are back in Town" is giving me.  It is a true work of art and so very original and special.  Thank you for creating it.  With best wishes

Wendy

Wendy bought one of my cherish boxes from the Hadleigh Show.  They turned out to be rather popular, I am busy painting more following orders!

 

April 2016

Hi Suzanne

We received "Resting in the Reeds" this morning in good condition.  We found the painting realistic and would recommend your work to others.  Once again, thank you very much.

Nancy B

Nancy commissioned some Bearded Tits after buying one of my other paintings at Brett Gallery, Monks Eleigh.  I chose their traditional setting of reed beds. 

 

March 2016

Hi Suzanne, 
 
I recently purchased from you a box with the Puffins painted on it and the picture of the "The Watchful Owl-Tawny Owl" both of which I am very pleased with.  The box was excellent with the detailed painting of the Puffins.  The detail and the posture of the Tawny Owl in the painting was spot on.  You certainly know how to correctly capture the owl in a painting which is not easy to do and is the reason I purchased this picture.  I admire your skill as an artist in producing detailed and beautiful paintings of birds.

Hi Suzanne

Love the painting, reminds me of Terence Bond's work & they don't get better than that!

Geoff commisioned  one of the three bird collections after seeing my original Garden Bird Collection at the Sudbury Art Exhibition 2015.  He chose three of his favourite birds, the wren, nuthatch and lapwing.  The painting was aptly named "Geoff's Choice"

 

October 2015

Dear Suzanne

Thank you so much for re-framing your gorgeous paintings for us.  We absolutely love them and will treasure them always. They look great in our living room, the detail is fantastic.  You are so talented.  Thanks again.

Fran and Peter

Three originals ( Barn Owl, Merlin and Kingfisher ) were bought from Brett Gallery, Monks Eleigh with the request to try and tone in matching frames.

Hi Sue, just on holiday and browsing your website!  Just wanted to say that your keepsake boxes are AMAZING!  I especially like the one which says Kate on it, so clever and unique!  My husband says they are far too cheap!!  Your web site is very impressive, the first time I have sat down and browsed properly rather than just a quick look.

Hi Suzanne, I would love to buy one of your cherish boxes.  I particularly like the sparrows box.   

I was looking at Highcliff's website. The Brantham Vets is the one I use. I was reading the vet news and your name was on there. I then followed the link to your website. The pictures look fantastic as well.  I am now so pleased with my box that I would like to order two more for Christmas presents. The way you have done the one I have is lovely, so I will keep to the same design please.

Hi Sue, I saw your painting on the web site. I have been trying to decide what to give my daughter-in-law for her birthday later this month.  She's been appointed 'bird monitor' at their house as she enjoys feeding and watching them when she workds from home!

As a keen bridwatcher myself, I recognised all the lovely characters that you paint.  After visting your studio, as you know, I bought the sparrows ( one of my own favourites ) as her present and she was thrilled with it.

Hello Suzanne, I saw details of your website in the Highcliff Vet's Newsletter. My wife has a keen interest in birds and as I always struggle to find her good presents for her birthday and Christmas,

I thought I would see if you had any Kingfisher (her favourite bird) designs in your collection.

I couldn't see one ( since added incidentally, Suzanne Perry ) but I did notice the Keepsake boxes and as I do a bit of pyrography I thought I might be able to get one of those and pyrograph her name onto it to add a personal touch............ 

I am now thinking of just putting my wife's name Kate on the box to keep it clean and I note from the notes on the website that you always do the Bullrushes differently each time. Looking at the design on the web, I can almost see a K and an A in the Bullrushes already, so I am wondering if they could be painted to spell out Kate in a subtle manner?........

Thank you, your sketch design looks fantastic.  I don't think I can wait until Christmas!..............

My wife loved her box! ( I gave it to her early, I couldn't wait! )............
