    Nellie’s work is absolutely incredible. I have bought several of her pieces, both Emu eggs and Ostrich egg designs for gifts and for my personal collection. These are rare pieces of exotic art that are collector qualtiy items, and each one is a unique piece of custom artwork. I recently reviewed her intricate carvings on gunstocks, and was blown away! Bass Pro Shops is currently (as I write this) reviewing her samples to be one of their carving artists.

    My son in law is an artist and teaches at the San Francisco Academy of Art, and I have traveled extensively worldwide. I am not a novice at knowing and recognizing quality artwork. Her work is as good as any I have seen, and what makes it so special is that it is unique. For the person who already has everything, having a custom piece of Nellie Whitener work is a treasure that you and your friends will cherish.

    Whenever I see someone take what started over thirty years ago and “…do so much with it” I am just thrilled. Nellie, your work is incredible and I am veyr proud of you. Your work is impressive and your attention to detail is extraordinary and that puts you in some very good company in the I&E network circle.

    The excitement now, comes as you go after even more of the “marketing” equation. All the world needs is to “discover” Ms. Whitner. Thank-you for sharing your expression with all of us. God Speed your future.

    I have been fortunate enough to know Nellie for several years. She and I have been friends since the 60’s and she has many wonderful talents. Her work is beautiful and I could not be prouder. I know that many people have already benefited from her artistic gifts, and many more will be blessed by her work in the future.

    Nellie and I are classmates from Davie High School–even then she was voted Most Talented and it continues on in her work today. It is truly a God-given talent and I treasure the gifts from her. She is truly a great artist.

    Nellie is a longtime friend of mine as we attended school together 1st through 12th grade graduation. I always knew Nellie was talented, even as a child, her art work was awesome. I am so proud of her and all that she has accomplished with her God-given talent and am so happy that she has continued to use this talent so others could enjoy it as well. I definitely treasure the art work that I have of hers. I pray that God will grant her many more years to use her talent and know that many others will be blessed by her by and her beautiful art work.
