I would like everyone to know the beauty and joy I have experienced in Ariane Edmundson's magnificent portraits! Ariane, such a pleasure to be with and know, has not only painted every member of my family, but my two beautiful pups as well. She has painted ten portraits for me and I will soon call her to paint two more. I think she truly has an artist's soul, and she is able to touch something deep and lovely in her portraits of those who mean so much to me.

Ariane's work is a refreshing look at the life of someone we love. She captured the essence of our daughter in her portrait - her look, her spirit, the way she smiles - they are all there. We cherish our portrait and it is an heirloom that will be in our family forever. Both sets of in laws want it now!!!

Sally Cox

The painting went over FANTASTIC! Rob was totally surprised and it brought tears to his eyes! Have already had two neighbors ask for your maybe you will get some business off of this. HAVE A HAPPY NEW YEAR!


We are thrilled with the portrait of our children by Ariane. It captures their personalities in a casual, beautiful, and warm setting. She is so easy to work with and did everything possible to insure that we were happy with the portrait. We will enjoy and cherish the portrait for many years.

I finally picked up my portraits from Cunningham framing and they look beautiful! Thank you again for your patience and wonderful work.

Dear Ariane,
Many, many thanks for the exquisite watercolor you painted for me- It is absolutely beautiful- I know it will make a powerful first impression as the corner for my plan! I look forward to working with you again-
Many thanks,

Kendall Knaus

I have received the watercolor and am delighted with it. This day I have mailed your check with letter (the old fashioned way).

I suspect that if the right people see your work, you'll have more work than you can handle. With a winning talent and a soft and winning personality, you will always take first prize.

David Cox

It is fantastic!!! Everyone loved it!!! That's incredible to me because I thought my kids would be soooo critical of themselves. It looks great. Colors, everything!!!! I hung it up already.
Patti Morgan

The painting was absolutely a success, they loved it so much they placed it in the main entrance to their home, visible to everyone. They want no changes what so ever. Excellent work and I appreciate everything you done for us. We will be in contact with you for additional work in the future.

Matt and Tami

Sent ups-was glad they wrapped carefully as it got banged up on the outside but the painting was safe. Everyone LOVED the painting-my Dad had tears in his eyes when he opened up(yes-that was a shocker as he usually does not show emotion)-he really was very pleased.My little brother said he had you re do his hair three times-thanks for your patience. My nieces said that my likeness was the best. Everyone thought that you captured the look and the spirit of us all-quite a compliment coming from my family. Hurricane Isabelle caused havoc to the party but everything worked out well in the long run.
Again Ariane, thanks so much-you are great


They are fabulous! You are unbelievable. Thank you so much. I know my wife will love them.
Take care and Happy Holidays.

Ariane has done two pieces for me. She did one of my two children, that is simply beautiful and something I will cherish forever. The other piece she did was one of my mother with the interior of the Astrodome during the Houston Rodeo as a background. That piece now hangs in the Rodeo offices and it is unbelievable. She made my mother look like she was going to step right off the canvas. Ariane's work has to be seen to be truly appreciated.

Bruce Baker, repeat customer

I love the freshness of this piece. You have really captured a lot of the girls personality - especially Ami. Vivian sent me the one of Achille too. Wonderful.


Thank you so much for the beautiful painting that now graces our teacher's lounge. It is a fabulous addition to our school and will be cherished as it was done by one of our own family. It is now hung, and I would love to snap a news picture with you any time.

'simply fabulous heirloom quality art'
whatever Ariane touches with her brush comes to life! v

Vivian McCasker:

Unlike most, Ariane takes the time to find out what, when, and how you want it done. Then she keeps you posted via email so you can watch the painting develope and allows you to change it as its in the works, she isn't finished until you are happy with it. Would recommend her to anyone who wants a quality painting that will capture your heart.

Ariane is so easy to work with, offering excellent suggestions in composition. I couldn't be happier with the painting of my granddaughter. Ariane's style of portraits was just what I was looking for. Her knowledge, experience, creativity, and skill are much evident in her work.

Your work is spectacular, as the realistic horse paintings are a great addition to my product line. Your "gift' in catching the animals realism is a real eye catcher to my equine clients. I feel real lucky to associate with an artist of your talents.

Edward Kramer 

The amazing thing about your paintings is the ability to capture emotion and action and portray it as if it were actually happening when the picture is being viewed. If someone said "paint LOVE" or "paint "FEELING" or "paint TENSION" I have no doubt that Ariane could do it. A truly blessed talent that comes from the soul through the fingers.
Philip D. Cox

Just thought I.d let you know the kids loved the picture. They were thrilled with it. My son is making copies and having them framed for me now. In fact my daughter-in-law is going to show it to her friend at work thinking she may want to have one done of her kids.

Halcie Harris

I'm really pleased with your painting on the tile in my kitchen.
Please come back to see it whenever we're finished with the remodeling.
Thank you!!!

Molly Bedric

The portrait of the boys looks fantastic!! My parents are still raving about the portrait of their grandchildren. Your work is fabulous!
