Customer Testimonials

"Working with Almerinda was one of the most special experiences I have had in my professional career. Almerinda took time with the details, making sure I was comfortable as she took pictures of me from which to work. I have never had a portrait done, and Almerinda's expert guidance helped me envision a painting full of meaning and rich color. Almerinda incorporated into the work so many important personal references, such as my grandmother's chair, a painting within the painting of Rockport, Massachusetts, and a side table with pictures of my parents, and my husband and children. Almerinda brought nature into the picture and connected the portrait with my life's work in environmental protection. Working with Almerinda was a profoundly moving and deeply rewarding experience. She is a truly spectacular portraitist who takes time and care to make extraordinary works of art that will be cherished for a lifetime. Thank you Almerinda, from the bottom of my heart. I will never be able to thank you enough for this work of art."

"Almerinda did a wonderful job on the portrait of me standing in front of the Capitol, which was commissioned by members of my former Congressional staff for my new office at the University of Massachusetts Lowell.  Her selection as the artist was particularly fitting since Almerinda is an alumna of the University.  I am proud to hang the portrait in my office, where it receives many compliments and reminds me of the rewarding years I spent serving the people of Massachusetts in Congress.  I wish Almerinda continued success."
    - Marty Meehan, President of the University of Massachusetts,
      former U.S. Congressman from Massachusetts

"By chance and circumstance I had the good fortune to meet Almerinda Silva.  I commissioned her to do a portrait of my husband, whom I had recently lost.  Although she never met him, she captured both his countenance and personality - all from the tiniest photograph.  Reflecting on his portrait gives me solace from my grief.  Almerinda is a true artist and salvation.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart, Almerinda."
    - Georgia McColough

"We fell in love with 'The Tango' upon first sight.  Almerinda had captured the beauty, elegance, and emotion of two people in a moment of passion and energy in the dance.  After purchasing this first piece from Almerinda, we couldn't help but commission her to paint 'The Samba' to accompany it."
    - David Drolet and Louise Settlemoir

"I love the painting of the angel that Almerinda did for my book cover.  What an extraordinary experience it was to see how she was able to capture an idea, transform it into a sketch, and paint it in a way that it practically comes to life.  Not only is she incredibly gifted, she is also a pleasure to work with."
    - Lynne Galvin, owner of The Lynne Company, distributor of The Forever Book

"Your portrait of my father, who passed away 3 years ago, captured the essence of who my father was.  His loving presence lives on through this painting.  Your talent transcends paint and canvas and you have the unique ability to bring things to life.  This was a most difficult time of my life and you have given me the gift of having my father with me again.  Your talent is tremendous.  Thank you very much, Almerinda."
    - Bob Thys

"You have a wonderful talent.  Not only did you capture my father-in-law's essence but you also created a legacy for our son.  Thanks!"
    - Nadine Thys

"I had always wanted to commission a portrait of my wife, but never knew where to begin, whom to trust.  Well, when my 10th wedding anniversary arrived I decided to finally do it.  It can certainly feel intimidating to have a portrait done, yet Almerinda Silva made the whole daunting process so easy and comfortable.  I am so thankful to Al for bringing her tremendous talent to my wife's portrait.  The artistry is beyond special.  My wife was so touched, she cried when presented with the beautifully framed anniversary gift.  What more can a husband ask for?  I will be dining out on this gift for years to come!  Thank you, Almerinda."
