'We are delighted with the beautiful restoration of this historic statue, and impressed by the research undertaken to ensure that the work was faithful to the original colours and materials rather than just a modern re-painting.'

​'I commissioned several artworks from Jeanette to  to enhance the worship environment in the four parishes I serve.
I continue to be impressed with her specialist knowledge and creative skills, I can speak with utmost confidence that whatever she is commissioned to do will be informed by much spiritual reflection and her firm grasp of the subject matter.'

'We didn't want to just sendour Christ the King statue to a large restoration company; Instead Jeanette's thoughtful, and considerate approach to the work gave me confidence in her ability to bring the statue back to life.
"I highly commend Jeanette and the work of Lewis and Lewis for their excellent creative skills and sympathetic approach to their work.'

'Jeanette's Her attention to detail was extraordinary.  Parishioners in their eighties told me that they had not seen the Sacred Heart or Our Lady looking so beautiful since their childhood. 
The service Jeanette provided was faultless.'

All I can say is that we had an extremely, old weathered and battered statue, which  was still quite precious to us. After decades exposed to the elements it was crumbling apart.   When we sent it to Lewis and Lewis I simply did so with the expectation that it could not be repaired. To see the patience and the care that it has been given is breath-taking. I cannot imagine how difficult it was to bring this statue back to life, but they have somehow managed it. The statue is now a work of art and stands pride of place in our school entrance.
​ I cannot thank them enough.
