Here is a rendition of my arms by American artist Michael Richards who is the Executive Director and Chief Heraldic Artist of www.assumearms.com, It is a rather simple elegant design with the addition of a helm and mantling. Michael Richards is a very approachable guy and tends to deal with commissions in a prompt manner. His fees are very reasonable if you are looking for a basic rendition of your coat of arms.
My final rendition is by English heraldic artist Dr John F. Mueller Esq. In this variation we see my arms within a 16th century style shield and helm, the shield is sometimes referred to as the papal shield, this style was popular with the Italian Roman Catholic church. I requested the colours be more subtle in this rendition. John F. Mueller captures the achievement in a neo-romantic style with flowing mantling and delicate attention to personalisation of the charges.
