"When I first saw The Papillon Gallery's stand at the Southampton Boat Show I couldn't help but be drawn in for a closer look by the powerful images. As a lover of the sea, in all its moods, I couldn't believe how effectively they spoke to me. The images go beyond hyper-realisation, conveying an atmosphere and like all good artworks, revealing a story. I have subsequently bought three of Marina's prints from Steve, who has been a pleasure to do business with. He gives a friendly, personal service, delivering the artworks himself and hanging them if required. The quality of the prints is exceptional and Steve does a wonderful job of framing them." Alan, Evesham, Worcs

"I just wanted to pop you a message to thank you personally for the flawless service you always provide. 
Joe and I originally met you in 2021 at Southampton Boat show when we purchased our first piece of Marina’s incredible work. 
We soon got the bug and have continued to expand our collection year on year with every milestone hit a new piece is secured. You have always delivered impressive quality and service and always go the extra mile at hand overs leaving us feeling special. We are not often left speechless but can certainly say we have always been left with little to no words when unveiling our latest addition to the collection. They look incredible in a photo but my goodness they are mesmerising in person. No job is ever to big or small for you. We can not thank you enough Steve for all that you do and for the amazing relationship you have with Marina helps to. You’ve become our go to Art Guy when we ever have an empty wall your always a call away to help us fill it ! Thank you so much , can not wait to see what the new year holds for you and the gallery." Molly & Joe, Shinfield, Berks

"We first saw Afroessa at the Southampton boat show and we absolutely loved the paintings by Marina Syntelis, they were completely eye catching and evocative. We purchased Afroessa a week or so after the boat show and added the deluxe frame to the picture also, which makes the picture very impactful. Steve hand delivered the picture to us once it was ready and made the whole experience of its arrival very enjoyable. He also, very kindly offered to help hang the picture, which was a lovely and unexpected touch. His passion for art and in particular Marina Syntelis' art is so plain to see. We are incredibly grateful to him for the ease and helpfulness with our purchase. The picture looks absolutely stunning! We wanted a statement piece for our kitchen and this picture is certainly that, it is a real eye catcher every time we walk into the room. Steve was great throughout, from the first time we met him at the boat show, right up until the delivery of the picture , it makes such a difference having a great experience throughout the whole purchasing process. Thank you so much"  Victoria & Shaun, Wimbledon Chase, London
"Dear Steve. It was very good to meet you recently - and I still cannot get over your kindness in bringing the Wren-man table all the way up to Anglesey! You would not recognise the library: you would not have to climb over boxes to help me with the table anymore. Looking forward to exploring our mutual interest in Mousey furniture again! Peace and all good." David, Anglesey, North Wales.
"Dear Steve, thanks very much for the kind words. We also enjoyed meeting you and having a chin wag! That's been a long day for you so thank you for that and the quick service. The Mouseman chairs look better in real life than the photos and we are delighted with them. If you are ever up this way, do call by. All the best." John, Lisa and family, Hovingham, Yorkshire.

"Marvellous customer service from Steve Burnage's Papillon Gallery. Having seen a painting I have wanted for 25 years on Steve's Papillon Gallery website on New Years Eve, I rang him rather tentatively first thing on New Years Day and found him really friendly and helpful. Steve arranged to deliver the painting to us himself so that we could see it in our own home before making a final decision and, within a few days of my phone call, he arrived with the painting and it was absolutely perfect. I can highly recommend the Papillon Gallery and the incredibly friendly and helpful service that is Steve. I have made a new friend and he delivered a painting that makes my heart sing. Thank you Steve., Sandi, Blakesley, Northants
"Ocassus is beautiful, stunning. It literally took my breath away when I saw it for the first time. Marina Syntelis is truly talented and we are delighted to have this in our living room - and we are so pleased to have had the good fortune to have met you at the Art Exhibition in London last year when we bought the David Smith painting and you had just seen Marina's work for the first time on LinkedIn! Thank you so much for bringing the painting to us - fabulous, personalised service and it is framed perfectly. Thank you Steve'." Crystal, Mark Cross, Sussex.

Secondly, look forward to seeing the other canvases framed...Challenge number 2!! All the very best as an exhibitor at the Winter Art & Antiques Fair, Olympia." Denise and Paul, Quendon, Essex
"From the moment I chatted with Steve, it was evident that he is a very sensitive and perceptive person who can see the depth and hidden meanings that hide in a piece of art. He sees art as something beyond just an investment and his passion for it sets him apart as an art dealer. We share something in common - both of us reinvented ourselves and got into art not too long ago but are moving forward by leaps and bounds purely because of our passion for it. I wish him all the very best." Sheeba Khan, multi-award abstract artist, Dubai 
"Jackie and I are so pleased that you were able to find and reframe a Henderson Cisz limited edition, signed and embellished Venice artwork 'Crossing the Grand Canal'. To change it from a standard frame into a 'boxed canvas floating picture' lookalike as per our instructions to match a Henderson original we already have was amazing. The fact that both frames look exactly the same is a testament to the quality of your workmanship. It was also refreshing to discuss our requirements with someone who showed a real interest in what we were after and your enthusiasm to exceed our expectations for a pleasing cost. Also to meet you when you personally delivered it, it seemed like we had known you for years. Thanks again." Terry and Jackie, Newton Abbot, Devon.
"Hi Steve. Thank you so much, we are over the moon with our beautiful pictures. We love them :)." Allison, Sheering, Essex.
