Brian was a delight to work with, listening carefully to what we wanted in our portrait. He easily connected to our active 3 year old grandson, beautifully capturing his personality and spirit. We are thrilled with our portrait!Kathryn Long, Greensboro, NC

Working with Brian was a wonderful experience for the whole family. We have Neher portraits of both of our children, done two years apart. He understood our children well enough to capture their unique personalities on canvas. The likenesses are uncanny, both in perfection of features and essence of their characters. Brian was a delight to work with at every stage of this process. We feel so fortunate to have outstanding portraits from such a special individual. We strongly recommend this experience to any parent who wishes to invest in a beautiful portrait.Billy and Jen Tidmore, Augusta, GA
This is our second portrait with Brian and we couldn’t be happier! He really captured our son’s personality. For this portrait, the setting was very important to us since it was done at our family ranch. Brian did an amazing job adding the ranch “personality” to the portrait as well and we are so thankful to him for another beautiful work of art!Brian and Anne Cannon, Dallas, TX

Nora

The portrait experience with Brian was wonderful. He painted both of our girls, one at age 6 and the other at age 5. We commissioned him after seeing a sample portrait that looked so realistic that the subject appeared as if she could reach through the canvas and touch me. Brian immediately put the girls at ease and, as a result, we got beautiful portraits that reflect their personalities. Now that we have both of our girls’ portraits hanging side by side and walk past them everyday we are so glad that we chose Brian.Dr. and Mrs. Kassell Sykes, Raleigh, NC

Brian’s talent as a portrait artist is unsurpassed. The way he captured not only the exact likeness of our children but also captured their personalities on canvas was so impressive! We have three portraits painted by Brian and they are the most treasured possessions in our home. He is delightful and so easy to work with. The entire experience was wonderful for all of us.Florence Ellen Cowden, Wilmington, NC

When choosing an artist to paint my daughter, I had no idea where to begin. I live in Coastal Georgia so I knew I wanted something outdoors. When looking for artists, I kept coming back to the same sample of a little girl on the beach. Her features were so lifelike that it was as if I could reach out and touch her. The artist was Brian Neher. I like the way Brian meets with you and your family so that he can get to know the personality of your child. He captured both living on the coast in Savannah as well as the genteel charm of the south.Nella Maxwell

Ivy

I have four children and the first two were painted by different artists. There is no comparison to the perfection in Brian’s work, or in the relationship which he formed with our child during the process, which shows in the final product. I wish we had found him sooner to paint all four of our children. He is now not only our favorite artist, but we consider him a family friend.Elizabeth Allen, Charlottesville, VA

Cooper

I can’t imagine a better portrait experience than we had with Brian Neher. He has a gift with adults as well as children, making all feel comfortable enough to really capture the unique expressions of each child. A parent feels as though no one sees their child the way they do when looking into their eyes, but Brian captured my children exactly as I see them when looking into their small faces, which is a gift I will be thankful for forever.Betsie Sauereisen, Pittsburgh, PA

Harrison

Jerry and I are thrilled beyond words.  It is truly a masterpiece.  We will treasure it and always remember your kindness and taking time to make Harrison feel at ease.  The results speak for themselves.  It was a special time.  Many thanks.Elizabeth Williams, Columbus, OH

I am so happy with the portraits Brian painted of my three children!  I spent hours trying to choose an artist and had almost decided to table the search for a while when my portrait broker suggested I look at Brian’s work.  I love his use of lighting and how he really captures the personality of his subjects.  Another advantage to using Brian is that he is such a nice guy!  He is laid back, easy to work with, and listens to his client’s suggestions.  I would use him again in a heartbeat and highly recommend him to others.Meagher Whigham, Mobile, AL
