I commissioned a picture when we had our daughter, Kitty and we love it so much. I am hoping to commission another in the near future as Kitty loves hers so much it hangs in her room and I’d really like another to hang downstairs so that everyone can admire it! Hayley is so talented and I would not hesitate in recommending her work to anyone either wanting an original, affordable piece of art, or a lovely family keepsake. Go buy! Adele Steer
I had never commissioned any art before approaching Hayley to create a piece for me, and I am so glad that I did. The picture is wonderful and hangs in my daughters bedroom where she is always admiring it and asking me about it! I now have another daughter and will certainly be looking to have another picture created for her too. Thank you Hayley, I love your pictures xx Camilla McBrearty
I love, love, love my ‘Pirate Dylan’ picture! It’s the first time I ever owned proper art, and it’s even more fabulous because it’s so personal. (My son thinks it’s pretty cool too!) Hayley took a rough idea and produced a finished result that was more than I could have hoped for. She is extremely talented and I’ll be definitely commissioning another one soon. Hayley, you rock! x Karla Cleverly
I commissioned Hayley to create a picture for my niece’s 1st birthday and I was over the moon with the finished work. My sister loved it when I gave it to her. Hayley took time to find out about Eve and incorporated aspects of her into the picture. The online photos don’t do the artworks justice. Now I really want one for myself! Lesley Colquhoun Banks
My gorgeous picture Hayley created for me hangs in my bedroom. The picture was a wedding day gift for my husband and is just perfect. It makes me smile everytime I look at it. A very talented and lovely lady (oh and sister in law). xxxx Nicola Restall
I am absolutely in love with my picture. It hangs proudly in my hallway, and all who visit us comment on it. It’s so beautiful, and captures myself and my daughter perfectly. I definitely hope to commision some more! x Natasha Kee
My wonderful Restall hangs in my hallway for all to admire. It is my most prized picture as it captures my three children so perfectly. Hayley has also kindly created pictures as gifts for two delighted family members. Thanks so much Hayley xx Faye Salt
Hayley is lovely. She promptly replied to my emails and told me dates when my artwork would be worked on and delivered and discussed what I would like. My lovely picture arrived when she said it would and was packaged safely.
Everyone comments on my unique picture and I love it. In fact I love it so much I asked Hayley if I could send it off to make an iPhone cover our of it, and she kindly agreed, so now I carry a little version of it wherever I go. Its fabulous. Much love for Hayleys artwork and Hayley too, Alice xx Alice Williams

    After seeing Hayley’s work, I asked her to make me a picture of my son, Deniz, and it surpassed my expectations. We have another son on the way and after he’s born, I’d love Hayley to do another picture of the two boys together as she really has captured such a special time for us. thank you!

    I commissioned a piece for my mom’s 60th birthday. It was an image of me, my mom and my daughter on the beach. Hayley was awesome and took my requests (the beach scene, what I wanted us to be doing in the picture, my colour preferences) and created an amazing and unique piece based on various photos of the three of us. My mom LOVED it (of course!). Definitely her favourite gift of all. I was actually sad to give it to her as I wanted to keep it for myself. I plan to order a similar image with more family members included to be the centrepiece of my daughter’s bedroom down the line. Hayley was pleasant to deal with via e-mail, reasonably priced, efficient, and the image arrived safely (which I was nervous about, given that it had to travel across an ocean!). I highly recommend Hayley!! 🙂

    My family portrait done by Hayley hangs in the lounge and I love seeing it because it makes me laugh. Somehow Hayley has managed to capture the spirit of my family in what she has produced. I also love it when somebody who hasn’t seen the picture before wanders over for a look and realises that it’s my family – that’s a special element that you can only get when you commission a piece of art.

    I would highly recommend Hayley and her artwork – she’s fabulous to work with and a talented artist.

    I have commissioned six pieces from Hayley thus far, three as gifts, and three for me! One of her great talents is her ability to convey the character of the people she draws, and every time I have opened a parcel of her work, I have felt moved by them. Her work is personal, quirky and beautiful, and I will be ordering art from her for many years to come.

    I commissioned a picture of my friend’s toddler for her 40th birthday. I loved it so much I was sorely tempted to keep it! A Restall is the perfect gift to mark a special occasion: not just birthdays – a Restall of the Bride and Groom would be a lovely wedding gift – a friends or family group as a leaving gift… A commissioned picture will certainly be my first choice when looking for something original that will be treasured by the recipient. Thank you!

    I commissioned a piece from Hayley for Christmas 2012. I had originally been planning on the standard group photos but decided that a unique and amazing piece of art from a truly exceptional artist would be money better spent. I wasn’t wrong.
    Though I admit to being really nervous and totally clueless about the entire process. Hayley was very patient with me and extremely helpful.
    When I opened my parcel I was absolutely stunned! It is beautiful! When I showed the children, my eldest daughter screamed with delight and my youngest two boys spent ages (under supervision) looking at it. They knew who everyone was on the picture, and Hayley has captured their spirits perfectly.

    I commissioned a piece for Christmas 2012 as a treat for myself.
    Hayley surpassed my expectations and each of my children are captured perfectly.
    My very sceptical husband loves it and has said to get another done of them all for next Christmas .

  8. Adele Barnett-Ward says:

    After commissioning a Restall for a friend’s 40th, I HAD to have one of my own. Hayley captured my children beautifully. I love it so much that I’m already thinking of ideas for the next one…

    Brilliant piece done by Hayley for our wedding anniversary. Beautifully captures our children.

    I’ve commissioned Hayley a couple of times and have been blown away by the results. But by far the best piece of work I have hanging in my living room, is something my wife commissioned for a Christmas present to me. It’s of our little family together. I look at it every single day 🙂
