Commissions

I have commissioned Zoe Fletcher on two separate occasions as a visual artist. The first commission I entrusted to Zoe was for the cover of my CD. The second commission was a backdrop for my stage show, which she fulfilled more than to my satisfaction. Each was finished ahead of schedule. To describe Zoe's work is beyond my capabilities as a layperson to the arts. My personal opinion is that Zoe is one of the most talented people I have ever had the pleasure to meet. She has carried out all commissioned work in the most professional manner, and I have no hesitation in recommending Zoe's work to anyone interested in engaging her services.

I have commissioned Zoe Fletcher to paint 3 pictures for me in the last 10 years. Zoe has been a dream to work with. She has listened to my ideas and then transposed those to an outline. Zoe has added her flair and always consulted with me at all times during the process, Zoe's work has been of the highest standard in a very acceptable timeframe. I would have no hesitation in recommending Zoe for any work as she has shown the highest level of ability and professionalism.

Testimonials

What can I say about Zoë Fletcher? It's difficult to put her into any sort of mainstream box, but I'll do my best. I found Zoë late in 2010, at a time when I was really looking for something creative to do. She invited me to one of her art classes & I've been hooked ever since. The classes are small & intimate, which makes it easy for Zoë to get around to all of her students & she's such a joy to be around; full of positivity & good humour. I was a great drawer of stick figures & thought how utterly hopeless I would be in a class surrounded by seasoned artists, but my fears were allayed immediately, as the other students were very friendly & non judgmental. Zoë made me feel so welcome, & with her wealth of knowledge, constant encouragement, kindness & praise, I'm happy to say that I've progressed somewhat from stick figures. I'm able to paint so much more than I ever thought possible, AND in less than 12 months. I can't imagine what I'll be painting in a year or two, but one thing is certain, I'll still be attending Zoë''s classes, which are extremely enjoyable & loads of fun.

Zoë Fletcher One Day Workshops

A heartfelt thank you from Joy and Breann, she will always remember her 11th birthday with her grandmother. What a wonderful day UNICORNS was. Zoe encouraged our creativity to flow through the use of colours and new techniques, resulting in a balance of reality and fantasy drawings. Our creative efforts have now been proudly displayed.

Zoe makes drawing easy, whether for the first time or the hundredth, and so much fun that the day just flies by. Before you know it the day is at its end and I must admit that I was pretty overwhelmed with the final result of the image that I had been encouraged to create. Now I have the 'bug' and I want to do more. So Zoe, you will be seeing much more of me, and I thank you from my heart for being such a wonderful catalyst in re-igniting my creative side. I cannot praise Zoe enough for her patience and talent. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending anyone who wants to let loose, have fun and the most enjoyment you will have in creating. Don't wait. Don't ponder and most of all don't doubt. Book in now for Zoe's classes and you won't be sorry that you did.

Just a very big thank you for all your help in getting me on the right track with my art. Since attending your wednesday art class and weekend workshops it has really inspired me to try something different in my approach to trying new materials and art supports. Your kind and encouraging words helped me be more confident in my application, approach, and the interaction with other people was fun and enjoyable. I highly reccommend anyone, whether a complete beginner or someone getting back into art after a while, try Zoe's classes or workshops. She is truly inspiring. Since going to Zoe's classes I built up the confidence to get a collection together of my works and on moving to Melbourne have held my own exhibition - all thanks to Zoe's encouragement. So thank you, Zoe... you're "The Bomb".

I attended my first class with Zoe because I was attracted to the colours of the pastels. Having only ever drawn stick people, I was expecting to have a lovely creative day, only I was blown away when I went home with a picture of a tiger that was admired by all who saw it. Zoe opened something up in me that has changed my life. I couldn't wait to try it at home and found the peace and tranquility in drawing touched every part of my life. Zoe's relaxed friendly style makes the day itself very pleasant and inspirational. I have found a resource in drawing that I did not know was possible.
