Thank you SO much for the portrait of our dogs, Rusty and Bryn. It was a birthday present and was very very well received.
The quality of the art work was first class and communications were excellent with regular updates to make sure I was happy.
The Lego Border Terrier also went down well!
Thank you Helena x

You can tell lots of time, effort and love went into the creation. It is so easy to deal with Helena with great communication throughout process. Sent quickly and safely very nicely packaged. Highly recommend HZWDesigns to all.
Dee Sewell - England, March 2023
Review for commission of painted slate. I contacted HZW Designs to commission a slate of my Border Terriers and right from that initial contact I couldn't have been happier. There was great communication throughout the process and I was kept appraised of progress at all stages. Helena was friendly and you feel she really cares about her customers. The finished slate is amazing, so much like my boys and really captures there spirit too. It is so much better in life than in photos. It was sent in due course and safely. I cannot recommend HZW Designs highly enough. Buy from with confidence, you won't be disappointed.

I asked Helena to create a very special memory piece for me of my two borders that died in the last two years. I selected couple of my favourite pictures and waited. I did not have to wait a few days later I received an absolutely beautiful drawing of my two girls on a slate heart with rainbow. I love it so captures my girl's spirits and Helena sure is one talented woman. Highly recommend.
Ian Houghton - England, October 2022

Today received this lovely artwork from Helena Wroblewska. A tribute to two much loved pets, only one of which is still with us. Louie was a border terrier, loved by all who knew him, and Tilly, now 19, is still though not for much longer I fear. Thank you Helena. x
Janet Thompson - England, July 2022
Dear Helena, Just to say a huge thank you for the art work you have made for us of Maisie in her favourite place on Scarborough beach. You have involved us every step of the way . Sending over drawings and making any changes we discussed. The likeness and colouring of Maisie is true to life . You also managed to incorporate the castle and beach huts at Scarborough which made it stand out from just any other beach.The painting will be a lasting memory for us every time we look at it we will be able to remember the happy times we spent there when May was at her happiest. The greeting cards were a lovely surprise too! Once again thank you Joy and Ian Beall xx

Kerry Willis - England, March 2022
Helena!! What can I say - absolutely amazing so chuffed with it!! Looks even better in person. A lot of detail went into the packaging and the extra little gift was just the cherry on top. My mums already claimed one of the small ones to frame lol. You were a pleasure to deal with & made the wacky vision come true. Loved “the crime scene” description as well. A very personal touch- love it!! Xxx
A3 Commission 'The Crime Scene' March 2022 - Molly McAleese, Scotland
I purchased the border terriers down the pub print as a gift for my mum. Helena was brilliant and contacted me straight away as I hadn’t provided my delivery address. Postage was very quick & the prints arrived well packaged. I was very pleased with the print and customer service - enough so that I ordered another for myself!!
Molly McAleese - Scotland, January 2022
Dear Helena! I just wanted to say how absolutely thrilled I am with the picture you have done of me and Teddy on the beach at Aldeburgh. It is just so fabulous and I was blown away when Steve gave it to me. Thank you so much. You are one talented lady. Love Jill. xxxxxxx
Jill & Steve Hamlin - England, December 2021

The Pedder family are all overjoyed by the beautiful work of Helena Wróblewska.  My Mum and Dad met Helena and Jon whilst on holiday in Wales. After learning that Helena was a talented artist with a love for Borders they knew a commissioned piece would be a perfect memory of their stay in the beautiful Welsh countryside.
Communication was great throughout the entire process and it was wonderful to see the ongoing journey of the artwork.  Thank you again for your incredible talent, capturing Oakley and Jack perfectly xx
Collette Pedder - England, October 2021

Amazing to watch it grow from the photos I sent you to this beautiful painting. You have captured everything, you're amazing .  
Sonia Thomas - N. Wales, August 2021
I commissioned Helena to do a portrait of my Cat and my Mum's Dog, enjoying a picnic at the Lakes. I thought it would cheer me up, and it really has. She has put in so much detail and captured their wee characters perfectly. Thanks Helena for all the hard work you put in.  I am so happy with it, I can't wait to put it on my wall. Helena has captured Freddie the border and Lara cat perfectly. It's such a great way to honour my beautiful pets.xx

The cards and envelopes are such good quality. I'll definitely be back for more cards from you in the future. Thank you so much.

Wow where do I start. I 1st contacted Helena in September about having a commission done for my hubby's 60th. Well people here it is.. it's absolutely amazing..  Helena Wróblewska you are an amazing artist. You got the idea straight away.. you researched every little detail.. you studied my photos I sent to you. Kev was overwhelmed with it.. he couldn't believe the details and how personal it was for him.. BUT another great thing about Helena Wróblewska is I have made an amazing caring funny new friend. Thank you so much for your patience lol.. Thank you for his personal message on the back of the frame.. what a lovely touch.. thank you so much.  I cant even begin to tell you how talented Helena is.. after 1 zoom call a few pics she had my vision.. it was such a pleasure to work with someone so talented.  PS people expand the photo to see the amazing details.

Kev Steele - UK, January 2021
Well, we started out with “I really love your drawings, can you do one for me of your two having a beer with my dog?” and by the time we finished up the whole menagerie was in there having fun on the beer patio – and you have to love those chickens!  This was my husband’s Christmas present and he loves it – hung in pride of place over the kitchen table.  The detail that goes into Helena’s work is amazing (just read the label on the beer bottles).  This is all put together from separate photos of the house, the patio and the animals – you are a very clever lady Helena!  
Jacky Shutler - UK, January 2021

I asked Helena to kindly complete a bespoke commission of a salmon fishing border terrier for my mum’s partner for Christmas.  Helena was full of ideas which made the whole process fun and easy and even offered a framing service. The picture was given as a Christmas present and was much loved by the recipient, it went up on the wall the day it was received ! It was a perfect present that represented two of his favourite things in life his border terrier and fishing, it was a truly unique gift .  Thank you Helena we will definitely be using you again !!

Jo Uwins - UK, December 2020

So it was me who Helena painted the moving house artwork and cards for. From the very beginning when I first contacted Helena to commission her, she has been so helpful and accommodating, her attention to detail is just fantastic, she is a very talented artist and I’m so pleased with my cards. I have given out the first ones to my family members and they were were delighted with them, the idea of personalised cards and the details of me and my furries in the picture, they are being framed to go on my nieces bedroom walls.  I would highly recommend Helena to anyone who wishes to have personalised cards or pictures painted...... I’m over the moon, Thank you Helena Wróblewska xxx

Thank you so much dear Helena... I was very happy.  Your cards are simply wonderful and designed with a lot of love and the exchange with you is always super nice.  Ute Bergner - Germany, July 2020
Your cards are amazing xx 
Allie Waghorn - UK, July 2020
Helena, guess what just arrived in my mail....the cards!!!!! They are absolutely wonderful!!!!!! They exceed my expectations immensely. The only down side to them, is that I love them so much, it will be hard to part with any of them, but of course I just have to remind myself that I can always place another order with you for more . I’m thinking for our specialty that our Club is hosting next year that an assortment of your cards will make for a great auction item. I will keep you posted on that idea for sure. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!!!! 
Louise Traska - USA, April 2020
I was thrilled to commission Helena to create a picture for my husband for his birthday.  He had spent 2 years rebuilding his Citroen DS rally and I wanted a fitting present to mark the completion of the project.  Helena was fastidious on the measurements and details, making sure that all the decals were correct too. She is also a border terrier mum, so managed to draw Pepper and Spot in to the picture to make it special and personal to Stu.  She is so talented and I would not hesitate to commission her again .
Jo Haill - UK, April 2020
They just arrived!!! Thank you...the cards are even better then I imagined.
