"Finding Petra’s work via Instagram was a fortuitous match to complete my Clifton project. Palatial Dunes exceeded my expectations. Petra was open and inclusive, and although I gave a loose brief, giving an artist freedom to create, did not disappoint.  On time, and on budget an additional joy.  Can’t wait to work with you again.  Thank you Artep Studio."
