Dear Ms. Shimeld,
I just got notified that you'd viewed my profile and so I went on to read your bio. I'm inspired by what you do and would love to know more about your work. I'm 20 years old and I've started a storytelling social networking site called MELT (Mind, Elevate & Talk) and the site is aimed at collecting stories from people of all walks of life who have an interesting story to tell. Would you like to be one of the first MELTers? Let me know and we can talk about it!

Hi Su,
Thanks for your email. I've just put up a lovely butterfly wallpaper in the spare bedroom and think your blue butterfly would match it so could you send the greeting card - one which might work if it's the same size as Mr Hare.  I could then get the print. It is a stunning picture.
J. P - Bridport - U.K

Hi Su
Thank you for letting me know that the print is on its way. I can't wait to see my sister's face when she finally opens it in May. Thanks again
Regards, Di
D. P - U.K

Su, you are undoubtedly a very kind and warm lady. Nothing can soothe a wounded and confused psyche as a kind lady can. I am sure this warmth is something very magnanimous that you have gained from living closer and more in tune to Nature. It feels genuinely soothing that i have found a friend in you. We may happen to meet or may not; but i am going to remember you for good. :)

Hi Su,
Just had to tell you how Mr Hare has fitted in the new kitchen. I tried him on the windowsill and he's perfect. I shall get him a frame tomorrow. The way he looks is just right for his position and he's watching me when I come in through the door - he's brilliant and I'm sure we shall have quite a few conversations - one way anyway! :)
J.P - U.K

Hello my dear!!!

Dear Susan,
I met you at The End of the Road festival in Larmer tree gardens, and was impressed by both your work and philosophy toward nature as well as your life story in relation to your work. Thanks again, this was just the sort of thing I was looking for and to the point, all most helpful. I look forward to hearing from you. Many thanks,
A. H - U.K

Hello my dear,
This summer I met you and your works were so inspiring to me and seeing your personality in it was tremendous. I felt great energy from our meeting. In autumn I met this pelicans in St James park and I started to draw them. They are incredible prehistoric creatures. I want you to see them:

Dear Su,
I hope you are well. I just wanted to follow up your very generous offer of help for OneKind which we spoke about on the telephone a few weeks ago. We're really grateful for all your help and generosity towards our time capsule appeal mailing.

Hello again Susan
I recently purchased the lovely Whippet print from you and am wondering if the Whippet has a name. I purchased the print on behalf of our local Whippet & Greyhound Club as a prize for our forthcoming Whippet national Championship Show to be held in May next year in Adelaide. I am hoping to include a short story on each of the prizes for that show. This print will either be awarded to the Best Exhibit, Runner Up or Opposite Sex In Show dependent on the final cost once it has been framed.
Many t5hanks in anticipation

Dear Su,
Your phone call was one of the loveliest I had ever received, thank you very much for calling in it was pleasure to speak to you. J.F, did indeed pass your envelope to F. S, who then passed it on to Sir David Attenborough and even watched him open and read your letter. He took your envelope home with him, and if you left your details in the envelope then there is the possibility you may hear from him (I am afraid I can't promise anything) but F.S reports he seemed genuinely pleased and flattered by your letter.
Best Wishes,
Dorset Wildlife Trust - U. K

Dear Su,
I know that you are continuing to be very busy with your bat charges - for which the BG remains so grateful. At our last comm meeting re: the newsletter - it was thought that a little item on the rescued bats might be nice. WHEN you have a spare moment (and I appreciate that might not be for a good while yet) would it be possible for you to make a few jottings on your experience and then maybe we could use those notes to feed into a newsletter item.
Very many thanks for the endeavour,
L. H - Dorset Bat Group - U.K

Dear Su
Thank you for Brown Hare. You print was won by a lady who had fallen in love with Brown Hare fine art print, at first sight. She was delighted. We raised £37 on the day for League Against Cruel Sports which I am paying on line today.
Thank you again for your support. With best wishes,
Rev.Noel L. Stevens - Dorset - U.K

Dear Su
Thank you so much for your message. I look forward to receiving them ( and giving!)

Hi Su, How are you? I just though i'd contact you as i have had the print framed and it looks fantastic, D. loves it. Thankyou so much for sending it over. D. will be going to England next week and he is thinking of dropping in and having a look. Do you have any plans to do another macaw yet? Take care.
Kind Regards

Dear Su,
We are going to have a day of talks, stalls and family fun on all things badger (basically a celebration of bagders) which will be in the Old Town Hall (venue to be confirmed) from 1000-2 (latest). We would love it if you could come along and show your work and give a talk on badger art etc. Stroud is a very artistic area and your work and insights would be terrific. I hope you can come as we would be thrilled.
Best wishes and thanks,
Chris G. - U.K

Hi Susan, I found your website and love your work. Are you planning on doing any further macaw paintings?
Tamara - Australia

Your drawings are beautiful!

Dear Su,
The print arrived today & it is terrific. Thank you for working with me on the crazy mix-up. The whole thing was my fault dang my mistyping fingers. Love the 'Crossing the River' print. Wonderful, thanks!
A. S - Michigan - U.S.A

Thanks Su, and enjoy your mini holiday, for the next few days! I am looking forward to receiving the wonderful print! Thank you so much, I am really excited about adding this print to a wall in my home.
Anne - U.S.A

Hi Su, I would like to thank you again for taking the time to talk with us yesterday when we visited your studio. It was so interesting and we both bowled over by your work. I love my print of the hare and I will mount and frame it by the weekend so it can go up on the wall. I did come home with the fire to want to do some more drawing/painting. I have told my husband he has got to come to your studio to see for himself you fantastic drawings and paintings, so hopefully we will be able to do that in the not to distant future. Once again thank you and look forward to seeing you again soon.
S. B - Dorset - U.K

I have just viewed your art work it is really impressive. Especially your pencil drawings of the wolves :)
K - U.K

Dear Su,
Thank you for the lovely 'Greater Horseshoe Bat' Fine Art Print that I purchased for my girlfriend, who happens to be a licensed bat worker! It is often very difficult to obtain good artwork of animals that are often subject to persecution among the many i.e. Bats, Snakes, Lizards etc.. However you have captured the very essence of the species in your fine art print and it now resides in pride of place in her living room. I think you would do well to add a few more images of the more 'unfamiliar' species to your collection and I'm sure I would be back and indeed recommend you to my friends and colleagues.
Yours sincerely,
Brett - U.K

Dear Su,
When I was in England last (I live in Portugal) my brother told me he had been having difficulty sourcing pictures of hares, which he loves. So I googled hares, and discovered your site. Consequently, as you know, I ordered a print to be sent to my brother. He was absolutely enchanted with it and has now had it framed and it is on his wall. Thank you so much. I am hoping that when you complete the 'Hares Boxing' picture that I can purchase that too for him.
Kind regards
June (Schneeweiss-Moody) - Portugal

Thakyou for your feedback, Im glad. You gave me some good advice, and it will keep me going. I will keep plugging away at it. It was really lovely to chat to you I will let you know of any other trails or exhibitions I think you should know about. We will keep in touch.
take care
M. - U.K

Dear Susan, I cannot thank you enough for taking the time to reply to my letter. The emages you sent will help us very much in our art groups work, as we have limited access to library books and also limited use of compters. I never thought I would hear from any of the artist's. You have broken my duck, as you are the first. We are in your debt forever Susan I hope your work trebles in commissions ect because you deserve it. I look forward to seeing and hearing more about your brilliant work. Best Wishes,
Stephen. F. - U.K

I would like to download several images and print them for students to use (or if you would be willing to email several jpeg files with higher resolution). I am interested in sharing with the students your paintings – your seahorse painting was the one that particularly caught my eye as a subject matter which would catch my young students' attention.
Julia S. - Alexandria VA

Thank you Su, I love your Leo drawing on Denise's card - I shall of course frame it.
