"Charlie Parker is a gifted portrait painter. His work is never wooden, his genius is to capture the spirit of his subject.
I was introduced to his work at a charity event in Stanhope Castle and was immediately struck by a drawing he had made of one of my neighbours Jeff Fearon. This must have been a pre-breakfast encounter Jeff was dishevelled and in his dressing-gown. The drawing however had a strong ring of truth and I could recognise Charlie's gift of line and the depth of understanding of his subject.
I immediately not only purchased this work but also commissioned a large oil of myself to be set in the bow window of my castle apartment. This was a gamble for us both as Charlie had not worked on this scale. The gamble paid off. The picture was completed over several months with the colours being observed by Charlie, despite his partial colour blindness. A daunting task but a masterful result. The work is now being offered in the Royal Academy Summer show and the Annual BP National Portrait Competition.
I wish Charlie success as I can see he is on a journey with his painting career and deserves wider recognition, which I am sure time will bring him."
"Having seen a number of portraits exhibited by Charlie, I asked him to do a portrait in pastel of my grandaughter (a lively 2 year old). Charlie agreed and visited our house to take photos and then agreed which picture to use with my wife and I. A couple of sketches were prepared within a short period of time for our comments that were taken on board by the artist.
The final portrait was outstanding and seemed to capture our granddaughter's personality perfectly. We gave the portrait to my daughter and her husband as a gift and they were as equally impressed with the standard of the picture. Charlie was a pleasure to deal with from the first contact to the delivery of the finished article I would therefore have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Charlie."
"We commissioned Charlie to do two portraits of my father and mother in law for a very reasonable sum. We had one done from life and one from a wedding photograph of them. Charlie did a wonderful job, and they still admire the portraits which have pride of place in their sitting room. Not only was the end result a great pleasure, but the experience of sitting with Charlie was an experience that is treasured. It is not often that one enjoys such devoted attention. It was certainly a different and much appreciated gift."
