""I was to have an official portrait painted for my College, who were happy to leave the choice of artist to me. This posed a dilemma – how to set about commissioning a portrait? From the moment I contacted Go figurative all worries about how to find the right artist, negotiate rates, arrange sittings, sort out the framing and the subsequent hanging, were taken from my shoulders. Even details such as what I might like to wear were helpfully discussed with me. It was an enormously professional, all-inclusive service and the end result, thanks to the wonderful artist, Helen Masacz, is all I could have hoped for. On the basis of this excellent experience, I can recommend Go Figurative’s portrait commissioning service without reservation.""
