"Stephen Reynolds is a national treasure! I have been working with him for almost twenty years, and during that time he
has executed 40-50 large walls paintings for me in museums, galleries, and private collections around the world, plus
small paintings on canvas. He is equally comfortable at both large and small scale, and working with plans or improvising.
Not only is Stephen a master painter, but he is an artist who understands the needs of another artist. Whether I am on site
or not, I always trust Stephen to do an excellent job, and I have never been disappointed. With many years and a huge
range of experience behind him, Stephen is the best of the best. Plus he's a lovely person to work with!"
"Stephen Reynolds is an extraordinary sign painter, graphic designer and artist whose exceptional skills and high
standards are in danger of extinction in this era of quick fixes. In short, he warrants my highest recommendation."

“When I decided to incorporate type into my art work, the one thing I knew for sure was that I didn't want vinyl letters. Sure
vinyl is fine for a garage sale, but when it comes to my art, the ubiquitous vinyl letters just don't cut it. Fortunately I called
Stephen Reynolds. When I saw him working on the Damien Hirst installation at the Museum of Contemporary Art,
Chicago, I marveled at his patience and precision. For many years I had seen examples of his work in numerous other Art
and commercial venues. I made an appointment for him to come to my studio to discuss my project. He showed up
promptly and listened to my desires and requirements. He made a few valuable suggestions, then gave me a price I could
live with. Needless to say the results were exactly what I wanted, on time and spectacular. I have started to incorporate
his resources into the planning of my future projects.”
