“You are very gifted at capturing the whole person, both their physical qualities and the essence of who they truly are.”

Sir Malcolm Rifkind

“I was delighted to be painted by Simone Sandelson. She has skill and a sensitivity that comes through in her work. She is a dedicated artist. I enjoyed sitting for her and was very impressed by the result.”

Shawn Tower

“Simone Sandelson attends to the external and internal aspects of the people she paints. Her capacity to stand back and record objective details without compromising a sense of intimacy as well as her ability to put a sitter in front herself in the process, are part of what makes her portraits so valuable and special.”
