A few comments by ASJ's Patrons and Collectors
When it comes to illuminated manuscripts and coats of arms, there is nobody better than Andrew Stewart Jamieson. His work is absolutely outstanding; ‘breathtaking’ might be a better word. World class and utterly beautiful. Thank you, Andrew, for all the thoughtful beauty you have brought into the world.

When I expressed interest in obtaining a coat of arms, a friend highly recommended Andrew Stewart Jamieson. Andy was able to take the vague, inchoate ideas I had formulated and unite them harmoniously into a creative, unique and beautifully designed achievement. I have been privileged to have him depict my arms twice, each in a distinct style, yet both clearly displaying the same artistic talent. I have readily recommended him to multiple friends over the years and would gladly do so again.

“Considered a master of our times, Andrew Stewart Jamieson is a much sought-after artist. The opportunity to work with him on a coat of arms was a rare, exciting chance that I didn’t want to miss out on. It’s an absolute honor to be able to add his work to my collection.
Jamieson is very active on social media and it’s great to follow the progress of the many works he takes on, often multiple ones at a time. It gives a fantastic insight into the creation of these detailed and complex renditions and the order things are done in, from an early sketch to using gold paint, and slowly adding color layers and details on top. Following the progress is a real adventure.”

‘A coat of arms is a way of presenting oneself to the world. Hand drawn and painted in pigments and 23.5k gold on vellum, the exquisite craftmanship and artistry of Andrew Stewart Jamieson is the heraldic equivalent of a Saville Row suit.’
Catherine Stevenson – USA
‘I came across Andrew’s work while undertaking research on a heraldry-associated project at Hampton Court Palace. I soon began to see his distinctive style wherever I looked – it stood out and had great appeal to me. It seemed quite incredible that such an ancient art could still be practiced using techniques and materials that had little changed over the many years. When my project finished, I commissioned him to produce a painting of my family badge.
I am delighted, to have one of his works. It hangs in pride of place above my desk and I remain in awe of the infinite patience and skill that he must have to produce such a piece.’

Andrew did phenomenal job at designing and painting of my coat of arms. I wish that I had inexhaustible funds because I would love to commission him for other works of art. Definitely at top of his field’…..

‘I am the proud owner of several pieces of Andrew Stewart Jamieson’s work. It is an honor and a privilege to have them in my art collection. I love them and adore them and appreciate the work that went into creating each one of them. I enjoy examining them and often find new designs in them I did not see before. His work is perfection ! It makes me so happy to be able to hold them and share them with others who also love them .I highly recommend him !’

‘I have had the privilege of commissioning various heraldic works from Andrew Stewart Jamieson since 2003. Mr. Jamieson’s talent, accomplishments, style, and professionalism are, in my opinion, unsurpassed in the field of heraldry and illumination.
He is also a great gentleman, a man of his word, and always honors his commitments.
He is not a “ commercial artist”, but rather someone who pours his soul into his work.
I recommend him without hesitation.’
Hector Robles – USA
‘One of the greatest heraldic artists of our time!’
