Buying original art online for the first time can be a bit daunting.
I have included this testimonials section with messages from some of the art-buyers who have purchased from this website ( and one o two who have visited my studio or a gallery) in the hope that it is helpful for people.
Hopefully, this will demonstrate my passion for painting original art and also for customer service .
Please use the contact page to get in touch with any question or indeed testimonials you may have.
Please note that the only changes made to testimonials before posting to this page are to correct spelling mistakes.
Just wanted to thank you for your fabulous artwork.
We have bought 4 fantastic paintings from you so far, which all take pride of place in our home. I love the attention to detail you put into your work. We get many compliments from family and friends who admire your work.
We look forward to our next purchase …… X Rom & Ali
I just wanted to let you know how delighted we are with all of the artwork we’ve bought from you.
We’ve now got 6 pieces of your artwork and we love all of them, the last piece we bought was 5 months ago and I still get a lot of pleasure out of looking at them on our wall every day.
I love the detail and the personal stories behind all of your work, it took a long time for W and I to find pieces of art that we both like and that would fit with our house.
I am delighted that we found your art and it has now helped to complete our house.
I am sure we will continue to enjoy all of the pieces for lots of years to come.
The paintings have arrived and what can I say but a MASSIVE THANK YOU they are amazing, I’m absolutely thrilled with them . I cant wait to get them up on the wall and show them off . You keep up the good work good luck with the exhibition I am certain if my 5 paintings have anything to go by the show will be a huge success .
Keep in touch and I’ll keep looking at your new work on your website and definitely be purchasing more in the future . Once again MANY MANY THANKS for being such a friendly talented guy .
Bye for now
My legs arrived today
Wrapped lovingly in bubbles and encased in card
Time slowed as I unveiled them
And the truth hit hard
My real legs turned away
In cellulite shame
Tormented, rejected, dimpled and lame
Ashamed of oedema swathed in socks
Replaced by visions in stocking tops
Rekindling the memories
Before the ravages of time
When the legs in the painting
Could have been mine.
Absolutely love it!
I just wanted to thank you for the amazing painting of the Kiltie you did for me.
It has pride of place in my dining room and is a constant talking point when I have friends over. The painting is similar to the one you did for Glenskirlie Castle. A special place for me as it is where I got married. As soon as I viewed the castle I knew I wanted the painting and sought to seek you out. The painting also has another meaning to me as I used to work in a kilt shop and I had 10 very happy years there.
The painting sums up what the company were trying to achieve and that was a modern twist on a traditional design, I still recommend that they buy your paintings for their shop. I love a lot of your work but my painting is my favourite. It also makes me smile as I now know you a little and your personality is in every brush stroke.
Bought ” Clava Cairns” from the Park Gallery on 13th January 2009.
I had just been to the Hidden Gardens to hang a message on the trees for my late husband’s birthday and your wonderful painting was the first thing I saw when I walked into the Gallery. I knew my husband would have loved it too so I bought it. Had it framed in black which I think further enhances it.
Enjoy looking at it every day and love the subliminal little face I see in it!
I went along to the Wasps Studio recently with my friends who have been buying your work for a few years now.
I really enjoyed the whole day. I have never been very confident in choosing artwork, leaving it to other family members. I was so excited at buying 2 prints. I now have “En pointe” and ” Treescape” on my living room wall. The wonderful warm colours are beautiful and I don’t think I will ever tire of looking at them. Looking forward to my next visit to your studio.
Love seeing your work on facebook.
Finally got a minute to open the shipment. She’s amazing!!! Thank you, again!! I appreciate it. I am so happy to have found you, and enjoyed working with you.
What a treat!
I have the honor owning 3 kilt prints purchased in July of 2013.
I found them on online through a friend. I consider myself one of his biggest fans in the States… He has many styles and works in different mediums and I love them all equally… Especially the kilt paintings! I look forward to adding another to my collection in the near future… I just love his work!
Just writing to say how great the two framed drawings of Marilyn Monroe we bought from you last year look in our house. You have a great talent and your versatility knows no bounds. Of course you’re also a real nice guy with great humour. Such a pleasure to meet you and see some of your other stunning artwork.
We will be back for more!
Hope you are well.
I’m really happy to have just bought the Madonna painting from you! It is an amazing piece of art and after I first saw it, I thought about it for a couple of days and then just said to myself………..I have to have it!
Your art just seems to get better and better and you have some really interesting paintings, congratulations for that.
Take care & all the best,
Hi there Joe
Have just received Marilyn. Thank you – another great painting which I’ll treasure.
Look forward to seeing the Mem Mehmet book when it comes out.
All the very best
I cannot praise your painting enough. I adore the new piece, and my other half is also delighted which is no bad thing! She says that we will definitely be back for more. For anyone reading this, not only is Mr Hendry a talented man but one of the most genuine people you will come across and he could not do enough for us.
Thanks again Joe,
We commissioned Joe to capture all that is our son who is just five now before he grows up. Joe was able to express what was in my minds eye and with photos as guidance he produced an amazing artwork revealing so many layers of expression its beautiful. Joe made it easy for us by understanding what we wanted using his style of painting.. If I could afford it I would be covering my walls with his originals. Very impressed! Thank you.
My husband and I wandered through WASPS Studio one day without any intention whatsoever of purchasing original art. We were just looking!
Then we came to Joe’s studio. We fell completely in love with the painting which we ended up buying. Our picture appeared to depict a drowning woman with flowing wave like tresses disappearing under the water but Joe explained that it represented a strong woman emerging from the waves and meeting the challenges of life straight on. “What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger”.
Joe is a wonderful artist. His portfolio is so varied and interesting and I think his personality shines through all of his work.
Our painting is our prize possession and although it’s on canvas, we are just about to have it framed as we want to display it and protect it.
One day we hope to own more of Joe’s work.
