Marketing consultant Hannah Montgomery took part in the September Unleash Your Inner Artist art class and here is her feedback:
‘I recently purchased a Photo Digital Art limited edition print from Jaanika by Peter Allen after she used this particular print as part of her BNI sixty seconds presentation. I had been thinking of buying a piece of artwork for my office since January but had not seen anything I really liked.
I like the fact that Jaanika promotes local artists and also that this artist uses scenes from around Birmingham and the West Midlands.
My purchase was meant to be for my office wall but unfortunately my wife Linda has taken a shine to it and now hangs in our lounge. I will be looking to buy another piece of art from Jaanika and Linda is happy because my Christmas present is sorted, I am currently looking at Okk Arts website to make my choice and I have to say the decision will not be easy because there are quite a few that I like which is good news for Jaanika.
I am often stuck for what to buy friends and relatives for Christmas and special birthdays but I have a feeling I will be visiting the Okk Arts website for inspiration in the coming months.’

‘I had been given the task of choosing the artwork for our office but, as an art novice, where do you start! I met Jaanika at a networking event – pure fate but a very welcome meeting. I had no idea where to start but she made the whole process easy, effortless and enjoyable. She was extremely thorough and guided me towards the type, size and colours we needed for our rooms shapes and sizes. The art looks great in our rooms. Thank you very much Jaanika, your efforts were invaluable.’

‘I have been working with Jaanika and Okk Gallery for 6 months, and in that time we have built a solid and trusted relationship. We have various styles throughout our building and require different styles of artwork to compliment our furnishings. Jaanika represents a large portfolio of high calibre artists and could, therefore, recommend suitable pieces for each space. Jaanika presents the artists work in a very passionate & professional manner, and she really listens to the wants and needs of her clients. The art that we have housed here at Grosvenor House are great talking points amongst visitors, and we look forward to receiving additional pieces to keep the collection current. I can’t speak highly enough about both Jaanika and Okk Gallery.’
