Oh my land! When my husband and I visited St. John's (and the Avalon Peninsula in 2005) we went into the Nonia Shop on Water St. and I purchased some beautiful writing cards. These cards are incredible - so much so that I still have the little packet intact....I just prefer looking at them myself....very selfish indeed. Just this morning I was searching for some info regarding the Grenfell Mission and I happened across your website this is when I thought my goodness this art looks like my little cards. Hastily I flew to my desk and lo and behold I AM THE HOLDER OF SOME OF YOUR ARTWORK......better than winning the lottery!!
You have an incredible gift....keep on keeping on!!
I am a very proud Newfoundlander.

To Benjamin Trickett Mercer:
Yes, I certainly do remember you, Benjamin, and your Art talent when you came to Art classes at my studio in NL. Glad to hear that you enjoyed those classes and that you have since enrolled in the Visual Arts program at the Sir Wilfred Grenfell College. Long may your wonderful paintings hang on your walls in Mount Pearl. Have a great career and future. Take care.

However doubtful that you remember me, as I was maybe 10 or 11 years old when taking art classes in your studio on the Eastern Coast of Newfoundland, your paintings are fantasic to say the least. I am grateful that I was able to learn from you at such a young age. Though I have almost abandoned painting completely, it was your immense talent which provoked my interest in the arts years ago that has transpired into my enrollment at SWGC in the Visual Arts program. I am glad to see that your passion to paint and to create artwork is still very much alive. On a seperate note which hopefully brings a smile to your face, paintings which you helped me create in your studio still proudly hang from the walls of my home in Mt. Pearl.

It's wonderful to know you have an art contest for children. Some children really like to do art projects. It's great for their creativity too.

I translated a letter that was written in one of your Art cards. Your work is fantastic, and though I'm brazilian and have never been to Canada, I loved your paintings.
Congratulation, you have a beaultiful gift!

As someone that lives away from home, it is such a trip down memory lane to view your beautiful and tasteful artwork!

Saw the site in the Downhome magazine and had to check it out. Beautiful work!!!!! I also paint, watercolor and took some lessons in acrylic last fall. I also was born in St. Mary's Bay, Riverhead. It's the place I always call home.

I saw your artwork at the Forum in Halifax this weekend. Your work is superb. I will be contacting you later to do a commission for me.

I found your wonderful site while surfing the web. Your work is absolutely gorgeous and I just purchased your print "Home in Colliers" as that is my hometown. I have several Newfoundland prints in my home here in Mississauga and I think Newfoundlanders are some of the most talented artists there are. I will be so proud to display your beautiful print in my home.

I was looking in the Downhomer and came across your advertisment. I started looking ,your art work is beautiful.My husband and I are starting our own business within the next 3 weeks. He is an artist as well.My husband does tuftings which are made out of moose and caribou hair and shaped into patterns.I love to see Newfoundlander's artwork.

Since I made my first purchase of Dunfield II back in September 2005 I've had numerous comments about it from friends. Looking forward to my next purchase in the very near future. The look of your new site looks great and nice to see that I can order online.....keep up the great work Virginia!!!!
