Do You Believe in Mermaids? We Do!
To any prospective client of Nomi Wagner:
We just returned from a long day on the road to pick up the absolutely AMAZING portrait that Nomi created of our daughter. She is a true professional in every sense of the word. She is a highly talented artist who is extremely passionate about what she does, and she made it very obvious to us that her main goal was to literally bend over backwards to not only please us, but to far exceed any expectations we had! She took on the very daunting and difficult task of creating an underwater portrait of our daughter as a mermaid.
At our initial meeting, she and her husband Gerry welcomed us (and our golden retriever!) into her home as if we were family. Nomi is a very special, warm, and caring individual. She showed us her gallery and got to know us not just as potential clients, but she really delved into getting to understand our personalities and our lives. She made us feel like true friends.
Nomi took the time to show us in detail how she actually creates her works of art with Corel Painter and even allowed us to “play” with her Wacom graphics tablet on her Mac computer. I think she may have created a monster (guess what our daughter wants for Christmas!!!).
After gaining a full understanding of our desires, Nomi was able to meld together several reference photos and then hand “paint” a spectacular, unique work of art that truly captures the essence of our daughter well beyond what we could have imagined. Her use of light, colors, shapes, dimensions, and textures are truly captivating. She has provided us with a beautiful piece of art that will forever be the centerpiece of our home and I’m sure will be passed down through our family for future generations to enjoy and marvel at.
Before we met Nomi, we were nervous and did not know what to expect. After our first meeting, we knew we had chosen the right artist, and we were so excited to see what she could create. During the process, she would email us proofs of the work in progress, to which we were able to reply with our thoughts and even photos; she would immediately make the necessary adjustments using her artistic eye. My wife and I are perfectionists by nature, and we were very demanding, but Nomi always gracefully incorporated our concerns and used her expertise to guide us in the right direction to create the optimal end result, which was her ingenious vision. We are so happy with the masterpiece she created and cannot thank her enough.
We are so fortunate to have this beautiful, unique portrait of our daughter created and signed by Nomi Wagner. She is a very special person and an artist in every sense of the word. Gerry skillfully printed our 40×62 canvas painting, as well as two additional paintings for the grandparents.
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you, Nomi and Gerry!!!!!!!!
