On teaching: "What I really appreciated was that you kept us calm and made the whole session fun, with laughter but also with plenty of work".  -H Cooper


"How grateful I am for all the beautiful work that you do and what a great deal of pleasure it has given to the many people to whom I have given a gift - a joy and a pleasure".   -Ann Murray


"To date, I have commissioned two pieces of calligraphic art from Marlene.  On both occasions, my questions were entirely pre-empted by an expert knowledge from someone who clearly knows her business.  A pleasure to discover an artisan in which the placing of trust proved such an easy judgment to make. I would not hesitate to commission the skills of Marlene Gray again - her work is of the highest standard." -Gerry, Gateshead


"I was lucky enough to have Marlene produce my wedding stationery for me.  I was very particular and she did not disappoint.  Her work is exceptionally beautiful and of the highest quality.  Further than this, she listened so carefully to what I had in mind and tailored her work accordingly.  She even added special touches which I wouldn't have thought of myself!  Her timing was excellent and she was very communicative and helpful on all fronts".   -Georgie


"Marlene completed a number of varied commissions for me, bringing intelligent insight and her own sympathetic perceptions to my original requests.  I have been entirely delighted by her work".  -G Loughran, journalist and writer


"I commissioned Marlene to do some titling of manuscript for musical compositions.  We had a face-to-face meeting during which I discussed the effect I was trying to create.  From the outset it was clear to me that Marlene was an artist who knew exactly what she was doing; the suggestions she made and variation of choice she gave me were exactly why I decided to use a professional.  The product of Marlene's work was magnificent and added a touch of "class" to my compositions. Her pricing is reasonable and I am a returning customer.  If you are looking for exquisite work, then I can recommend Marlene.  She is very approachable, reliable, pleasant, and a credit to her artistic field of expertise".   -Jim Hall, Professional Scottish Bagpiper and composer


"Marlene's calligraphy on our certificates is exemplary.  She always completes any requests in a prompt manner.  I'm very pleased with the work she does for us".  -Richard Sayers, Certificate Department, Trinity College London
