"When my husband called me to tell me that he picked up the portrait of our 2 year old daughter that we commissioned Shana to do for our parents' Christmas gift, he said to me; "Holy cow! It's going to bring tears to your eyes. She's THAT good. It came out awesome. She's so talented, wait 'til you see it!" He was right. Our parents, who have a deep appreciation for fine art were completely impressed and at first thought the drawing was a photograph because it was so realistic. My husband and I have decided that we have found the most special gift--Shana's drawings, that we plan to give as gifts to our parents next year and for years to come. I think this was the nicest gift we've ever been so proud to give. The detail in Shana's drawings are unbelievable and she captured a rare and precious "look" our daughter made that stole all our hearts. Thank you, Shana" ~Gretta Taglione

The black and white tinted picture was an extact match to the copy I provided ArtByShay. I would recommend ArtByShay to everyone!!! Job well done!!!!" - Matthew Weaver

"Shay drew a picture of us at a hockey game, and put a white mat around it. We used it for our wedding guest book. Not only was the photo spot on identical, but all of our guests commented on how unique and special it was. Now we have a beautiful reminder, with well wishes from all of our guests hung on our wall. It means so much to me and Wes, we absolutely love it. If you are looking for a unique gift, or to use as a guest book at your wedding, this is the way to go. You will not be disappointed." - Erica & Wes Keays

"Shana drew 2 beautiful potraits for me over the last 2 years. The first was for my boyfriend and it was a picture of him and his son. Shana had never met them but was able to capture the love between father and son. The second portrait that she drew was of myself, my father and my brother. It was a gift for my father's 60th birthday. It was a perfect gift for a man that is hard to buy for. He was blown away by it and was extremely touched. Thank you Shana!"- Deanna Beaver
