Reviews and Client Testimonials

"What you produced was incredible and achieved in such a short deadline... thank you for all your hard work!" Carly Hewitt, Frank PR

"The reproduction Viking clothing arrived today and it looks really good so thanks for your dedicated work in making this happen. Your teaching notes were also really useful - quite a lot to get my head around but very helpful to us for at the moment it seems the clothing we have been using is misleading, and what we say is also misleading." Stuart Slade, Education Manager, National Maritime Museum Cornwall

"They look amazing... Well done you've pulled the rabbit out of the hat for us. I've shown the miniatures to a couple of people and they have been in awe. Thanks so much." Dan Smith, BAFTA winning director.

"Speechless!!! They look great. It has been a real pleasure doing business with you; your sculpting, communications and scheduling cannot be faulted in any way. If asked for a recommendation for a sculptor, you'll be number ONE on my list. " Mr. A. Burton, Ancient Buzzard Models

"Magnificent! Even better than the first project you did for me, the photo's just don't do justice to your work." Dr. A. Sharma, Oxfordshire

"Need a scale copy of Vermeer's girl with a pearl earring? - (look to) one of Aidan's perfect paintings." Dolls House and Miniature Scene magazine

"Aidan is a fantastic artist - he always has such a varied stand of paintings, sculptures & other one off items." Kensington Dolls House Festival Cup; Runner-up 2014

"I wanted my monk's garb to be authentic looking eleventh-century English Benedictine as it's so easy to just produce a generic medieval monk's outfit. Remarkably, Aidan was able to work from only a set of measurements and a couple of manuscript images yet I've had a number of medieval textile/dress experts comment approvingly on the finished product. He was an excellent communicator and extremely professional in his dealings with me. The result was top notch, a perfect fit and great material and I would not hesitate to contact Aidan again should I need something else from the Anglo-Saxon period!." Dr. Christopher Monk, Freelance cultural historian and Anglo Saxon specialist, Manchester
