Matt Stirling - Actor

‘I’ve just received my new artwork to add to my growing collection of Jay’s fine art. It’s of me playing the character Private Calfor in Rogue One (Star Wars) along with the Lego version recently released. I love this painting! It’s stunning, perfectly rendered and now has pride of place in my home. Jay delivered yet again dealing with everything personally and professionally, with his quality art, constant communication throughout and perfect packing and shipping. As soon as it arrived, I put it straight on the wall, no need to faff about with anything. I’ve already had so many friends and fans compliment the work and enquire about Jay’s skills. I can’t recommend his amazing talents enough and his customer service is superb.’

Pamela and 'Boxer Dog'

‘Oh, my goodness Jay, I absolutely love it!
You have really captured Larry and his death stare perfectly. I cannot thank you enough for taking a precious photo of a very precious Larry and doing him complete justice!
Also thank you for your continued correspondence throughout the process.
I've been telling everyone about how impressed I've been and no doubt when they see the painting, they will be in touch themselves! I can’t wait to show him off!
Thank you so much again for taking this commission on and completely acing it! You are a true artist and I'm so glad I came across your work and made the decision to trust you with Larry.’

'Tree of Life'

‘I commissioned Jay to paint a black and white version of the tattoo on my back. He floored me with his great vision, eye for detail and craftsmanship and painted an incredible, life-like piece of art. Worth every penny.’ – G. Parker, Amsterdam.

[Jay here. This was a complex painting, with so many details hidden in the tree which are unique to George’s life and experiences. I also got a kick out of his reason for wanting a painting of his back tattoo; it was the only way he’d ever be able to see it!]

Larry was not only delighted, he was moved to tears.

‘It is hard to find a gift that delights my husband. This year I commissioned a custom portrait from Jay Fortune. Larry was not only delighted, he was moved to tears. The portrait now hangs in our dining room where it brings all of us on-going joy.

Working with Jay was a pleasure. The portrait arrived safely and speedily. Jay is a thoughtful and collaborative painter. I felt I was part of the creative process. I wasn’t sure a custom portrait of this quality was within our reach but it was surprisingly affordable.

My husband is always gracious about the Father’s Day ties and books we give him. But this year he was truly speechless and moved. I am so happy to have found a way to show him how special he is to us.’ – M. Hass, Memphis.

'Magic Memories'

‘Everyone who has seen it, loves your painting. Thank you so, so, so much. The fact you got it done so quickly and in time for our anniversary made it even more special. It is on display in our Great Room as the center piece of artwork. Everyone comments on it. You have captured one of our most treasured memories perfectly. It’s more beautiful than we could have ever imagined. Thank you. We love it and will cherish it forever.’ – T. Meseroll, LA.



When I started seeing Jay’s work I was so impressed, I knew instantly that he was the perfect person to commission for my portrait. It was such a simple process from sending him the photo to paying and receiving the framed item. The detail and likeness is incredible; Jay has captured the essence of my mum in this portrait. It takes pride of place in my living room now and I know that my mum would be eternally grateful to Jay for producing such an amazing memory of her.’ – M. Herd, London.

[Jay again. Sometimes I am asked to create works in charcoal or pencil. I love both mediums. When I’m asked to create a portrait of a loved one who has passed away, these black and white charcoal portraits seem somehow appropriate for reasons I can’t explain. Like creating the art itself, it’s an instinctual thing.]
