Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We didn't know anything about this place, just saw the sign and stopped by.
Happy surprise! Fantastic discovery!
The artist, Neil Sheppard passed away but his wife Liz gave us a warm welcome and showed us around. She is very kind and friendly.
Beautifully set up the studio and his arts are excellent.
Especially landscapes are my favorite.
The prices are not cheap but definitely worth it.
We love this studio and love his arts. Highly recommend!

Fantastic little find. Great work on the walls and in the workshop. It's a few km off the road but easy to find.

We just happened to come across Shep's Studio and how lucky we where. Meet the man himself and viewed his wonderful collection. We now have some special memories of our time on the Island hanging on our walls. Heard recently Shep has passed away, what a terrible loss for all those who love art. Great news you can still buys some of his work.

I visited Shep's Studio yesterday & loved his art & the experience of his gallery. It feels so authentic & has a bit of a rustic feel which I think suits his style of art & the location of his work.
Liz, Shep's wife, showed us around the gallery & shared insights of his works. She is a beautiful person & adds to the calm & special experience of the gallery.
I wish I had visited the studio when Shep was alive to meet the man behind the art & tell him how beautiful his work is.
I can highly recommend a visit to this studio if you are an art lover, or just enjoy soaking up local insights & culture.
Ring to make a time with Liz to visit the studio; she seems really flexible.

It is so sad that Shep has passed away. His wonderful partner showed us around his gallery and explained we could still buy his beautiful paintings.

A bit sad really as Shep is very ill and may not be around for much longer so get in to purchase your painting now. It was sad talking to his wife but she seemed to be holding up. The art work was just amazing and we are waiting in anticipation for ours to arrive at home so we can hang them up

The artist is very entertaining but I did not like the new direction of his art work. I saw his earlier works at Mandy's home and that attracted my attention. He told me that his emphasize had changed and that he would go to Mandy's house and look at his earlier works.

Sheep is a great guy to talk to. He is relaxed and explains his works should you need context. He is passionate about his art and there is no pressure to buy. His work sells because it is VERY special. The studio is a working one.
