We'd like to share a few messages from our many happy clients

"I’ve just come across your website.  I’ve just spent half the morning going through it all, bowled over at the sheer quality and magnificence of the work and really in awe at the strength and vibrancy of your imagination. That the two things, imagination and execution should match each other so well, and on such a high plane, is a matter of wonder. Well, it is to me; that it’s natural to you is a reward to us all".  Thank you Desmond


I received the canvas prints and am extremely happy about the quality and the content. They were above my expectation. I would like to order some more for myself and my friends soo


Just letting you know my commission was perfect and I was very happy with it.

Carmen got it for xmas and loved it

"My beautiful piece arrived. My husband will love it.  i know my husband will be in contact in the future when he sees it. you were a pleasure to deal with.


"His works are unique, and in our home highly valued and appreciated.  We still haven't figured out where this work will hang, but isn't that a measure of the value of someone's work?   When you have to have it!  and then find somewhere to hang it?"               

from one of our valued clients in Wagga, NSW, Australia

There is ABSOLUTELY  nothing like owning a Dave Wood ORIGINAL to go on your wall.....It is really GREAT and we are thrilled to bits with it.  All we need now is to find the correct wall space for it to be shown to the best advantage.

Hi There Jan and Dave,

Let me begin by saying when our Managing Director and I opened the package this morning we were overwhelmed by the beautiful artwork that you did for us.

My goodness, absolutely beautiful. Surpassed our expectations.

From the bottom of our hearts, thank you thank you thank you!

Oh it is so beautiful !!!! I was a little taken a back when I saw it. More beautiful than I ever expected.

Could you please tell David that I am so over the moon about what he has done. I cant believe I am lucky enough to have this. He has just done something so beautiful and unique. I am very very pleased.

Hi Jan and David,

It is here !! and I am just so thrilled with it.  I couldn’t have asked for anything more beautiful.. Thank you for doing such extraordinary work and I can’t wait until Friday to present it to my friend. I am already planning on asking for some special pieces for next year now if that would be alright.
My husband and I are visiting family Tewantin and Peregian Springs in the New Year and I would love to visit you and thank you in person. I will definitely be sure to phone and ask if you would mind a visit.

Again, thank you for your wonderful skill, talent, and efficiency in getting it to me in time.   I have learnt so much about how unskilled I am in my own calligraphy attempts….. perhaps David could teach me in some lessons one day.

Take care, Merry Christmas and Thank you,


Dear Jan,

Thank you so much – the present arrived on Friday and is so beautifully wrapped up that I will leave the bubble wrap on it & cover it with wedding paper! I thought I would just let you know that it arrived safely and the colours are even more vibrant than I was expecting. It really is lovely.

Thanks once again for making this transaction run so smoothly.



Dear Jan and Dave,

Thank you soo much for your beautiful work on this piece for my parents' Anniversary! Your piece is now hanging on the prominent wall in their living room, and they love it! I also saw it in person recently, and it is even so much more beautiful in person than it was over the internet!

Thank you so much from a very satisfied customer, and from her blessed and grateful parents!

I wish you all the best in your beautiful work!

God bless you!

The Irish Blessing has arrived and it is perfect – that must be some kind of record for delivery time!

Regards and thanks


To Dave & Jan Wood,

Thanks very much for 'Clancy of the Overflow'. As Darryl Carrigan from that great Aussie movie, 'The Castle' would say, 'It is going straight to the pool room'.

It has exceeded my expectations and in my eyes is a remarkable piece of work. I look forward to years of enjoyment as I learn verbatim my favorite Australian poem.

Look forward to checking the website to see what exciting works Dave comes up with in the future. "

"I marvel at my piece on an almost daily basis, always finding something to marvel in the complexities of Dave's skill in capturing the essence of the theme with his craft."

Just to let you know that the picture arrived yesterday well wrapped and the frame is good – very happy with it and of course the marvellous poem and calligraphy work. Thanks once again."

Dear Jan & Dave

It is hard to imagine that any one piece of Dave’s work would be more special then the other—but the piece our Son—Phil & new Daughter-in-law—Nicole brought us (with your guidance) as a thank you gift for helping them throughout their wedding arrangements and event goes straight to the ‘heart’, coupled with your creation of the ‘Butterfly’ with words from Tessa one of our Dutch Daughters.

Our years of dealing with you both in creating our little Canberra Gallery of Dave’s artwork has been most pleasurable—your service, your professionalism and advice has always been at the highest level—and you are both naturally recognised in this regard by very many of your clients and visitors! While the wall space has become limited with our growing collection—there is always hope that another piece will find it’s way into our home at some stage in the future! thank you always for your excellent service and friendship—"

Dear Jan

I have just taken delivery of the work (RAIN) and it looks amazing so I am over the moon. I cant believe you got it to me so quickly - from Australia to London in 7 days and in perfect condition. I will certainly recommend your online gallery to my friends and family.

Thanks again for your excellent service!

Dear Jan

Today we received the print of Kahlil Gibran - Marriage. It's beautiful! It's a wedding gift for dear friends of us. Thank you very much for the great art and fast shipping. We definitely will return to your site in the future to purchase another one of your fine art. All the best!
