"Jaleel has been an absolute pleasure to work with. Her portfolio shows clear strength in artistry, but does not do her work ethic justice. She quickly understood the brief and was at ease working within our tight timeframe. Jaleel set clear parameters for us and communicated her needs, while being incredibly responsive to feedback and remaining flexible to our needs too. We are delighted with the final outcomes. She has helped create a vibrant thread of visual interest throughout our annual Impact Report - a key tool for our organisation to fundraise, celebrate the work of people we support, and influence change. Jaleel’s interpretation of our brief has resulted in portraits that are perfectly aligned with our brand, as well as being representative and characterful. We would not hesitate to recommend her based on her outstanding professionalism and technical proficiency, and look forward to working together again in future. "

"Jaleel is one of the most professional and punctual creatives I have ever worked with, if not the most. She takes direction like a fish to water and really aided me in sculpting the images I had in my head. I would use her and her brilliant artistry without a second thought. She created two personal commissioned pieces for me (and another for the relaunch of our site in early 2016), but I would love to see more of her talent in the public creative sector. She is a true talent."

I look forward to working with you in the future." - Shahidah Foster, La Deutsche Diva
"My experience with Jaleel (Skietchy) has been an awesome one. I received all my cover arts on time. She was able to take my vision and translate that into art. Her comprehension was vital in making my project complete. Everything came out exactly how i envisioned it or better. I would definitely refer her to friends and family looking for a similar style & design."

"Working with Jaleel was a pure delight! Jaleel is very professional, passionate and talented. My favourite thing about Jaleel is how she took on my project as if it were her own. Not once did she think of it in terms of compensation. She worked really hard to have the vision of my book turned into images. Jaleel was also very flexible and had no qualms changing or adapting any of her pieces. Her talent is understated, she is impressively good at her craft and will undoubtedly become famous one day because of it! I am honoured to have stumbled upon her and will not hesitate to work with her again." - Shara Marie-France
