Testimonials

The following is just a sampling of some of the wonderful thoughts and feedback that we have recieved at Art and Murals in Southampton. It’s always great to be appreciated and know that our work has made people happy :)

‘Just a little thank you to Donna Mcghie from Arts & Murals for the lovely Unicorn mural for 4 year olds playroom. A unique design including everything that was wanted & using colours chosen by my little girl. Very individual & different decoration that brightens her playroom & makes a change from pictures or feature wallpaper. In the words of a 4 year old “it’s beautiful & just what I always wanted”’J – Southampton

‘Thank you Donna, everyone was ‘over the moon’ with their work. You are a very good tutor and made people feel really relaxed and I have had a really stressful few weeks. After the workshop I felt ‘Oh I feel really relaxed now’ and realised it was having a full day just to do something for me, so thank you so much!!’F – Southampton


‘I suffer from a lack of confidence. Donna’s workshops give me an amazing sense of accomplishment. I leave them feeling incredibly pleased with myself. Not only have I met some lovely people, I have tangible proof I am, in fact, quite artistic. It really does my confidence the world of good.’ S – Bursledon


‘You did such an incredible job today, I still have my face paint on now, thank you so much, Eva was immediately jealous and asked to have hers done!!! I wore the facepaint to pick her up from preschool who were just so impressed, your face paint is in a different league to most! From Laura, Southampton


‘Thank you, Donna, for the wonderful fairy workshop! It was a really lovely day, great instruction, lots of fun and in the perfect venue. We really enjoyed it! I’m so, so pleased with my angel. Mine came out so much better than I ever imagined. I’m thrilled that I now know the secret of how they’re made. ;-). From Jenny, Petersfield


“Thank you so much for being such a great part of the Camp Bestival Event yesterday- The face painting you did was wonderful- thank you!- I hope you enjoyed it as much as we all did and thank you once again for helping make the day such a success!” Caroline Piper Learning Officer at Southampton Art Gallery


“Donna recently joined us at our Easter party for children who have been bereaved, fully equipped with her facepainting kit and plenty of glitter. The children (and us adults!) had a fabulous time; this was due to Donna’s constant calm approach despite the inevitable excitement levels of the kids. Donna had an impressive array of materials; the glitter tattoos were a particular hit! Thank you Donna for giving the children we support such a fun and memorable experience.” Sophie de Bere, Rowan’s Meerkat Service Co-ordinator at The Rowans Hospice.
