The portraits of people on this site are a mixture of family portraits and corporate portraits. They have been commissioned to commemorate a special occasion, for a uniquely personal gift or just for fun. I aim to create portraits of people that capture their unique characters and personalities. Emotions are etched into a face over time and I love to bring out the mischievous, fun side of each person. The art of people drawing is to study their faces as they are talking, make them laugh and to take LOTS of photos to catch their many and varied expressions. Send me your favourite pictures or for arrange for a photoshoot. Prices are based on the time required to create and perfect a portrait but can be suited to any budget, size, shape and style. Portrait gift vouchers are available. A beautiful portrait of a loved one is a unique and special gift, a treasure, an heirloom.

 

The finished physical article is stupendous, delightful and almost life-like! I love it as does everyone at my place of work. I’ll be taking it around to family members over the 2-3 weeks but I know they are going to love it as well.

This was by far the greatest gift I’ve given to any close family member.

We are both delighted with your work and the portrait brought tears to her eyes. So many thanks to you and your magic touch.

I use artists' quality pastels on high quality acid free pastel paper which can be cut to any size. The price table indicates a few standard sizes so please contact me to discuss other shapes and sizes. Finished pastel portraits need to be protected behind glass with a spacer between the mount and the portrait. I either post them unframed or can arrange for a full framing service.

It is no exaggeration to say that when we first saw M. and Pug on your blog it took our breath away! We are both so very pleased. We just love it!

People Portraits in Acrylic Paints

Prices start from £285, please see table below.

Click here for more information on how to commission a portrait.

I use only artists' quality paints on high quality acid free watercolour paper, stretched box canvases or canvas panels. Finished watercolour paintings are traditionally framed with a mount behind glass. Acrylics can be framed glazed or unglazed, usually without a mount. Box canvases can be hung straight on the wall and cost more initially, depending on the size, but you save on framing. The price table indicates a few standard sizes so please contact me for other shapes, sizes and costs you may prefer. I post finished portraits for you to frame or can arrange for a full framing service.

My father really loved it - was indeed a bit speechless with an instant smile on his face at first, but then said that this painting is ‘better than any picture anyone has taken of him’. He really liked the details like the stripes on his suit and the rings. I had to thank you for the work you’ve put into this. Other family members concluded, ‘that’s really him, beautiful!’

The portrait is wonderful, I am sure the family will think so too. It is a present for my husband’s nephew’s 18th birthday I am so looking forward to giving him it. I am sure he will always treasure it.
— Doreen H, Blackpool, Lancashire
The picture is now hung and it looks truly amazing. It must be wonderful to have such talent. It couldn’t be more her. Thank you very much.

The portrait looks great. Many thanks.

I only use artists' quality oil paints on high quality linen or cotton stretched box canvases or canvas panels. These come in many different sizes and shapes - the price table indicates a few standard sizes so please contact me to discuss other shapes and sizes. Traditionally oil paintings are framed unglazed without a mount although you can frame them as you like. I can send finished portraits for you to frame or arrange for a full framing service.

Just wanted to let you know that I had the painting delivered to M’s sister here in Scotland (as she said she would take it over to Zambia with her this summer) and she absolutely loves it. She said she was completely lost for words and had tears in her eyes because she loved it so much! She’s taken photographs and sent some to her mum and she is also so thankful for the gesture and absolutely loves it too. They both agreed it’s such an accurate representation of him. Just wanted to let you know that I’m so grateful for you doing such a fantastic job and making it such a stress free experience for me.
Thank you so much.
— Cameron M, Edinburgh, Scotland
Painting landed in good shape. We are all very thrilled with the result and I’m sure C. and L. will be equally thrilled. Thank you so much. I will endeavour to put your good name and leaflets around. And be assured that I will strongly recommend you to anybody that shows the slightest interest. Likewise I will keep you in mind for any commissions in the future.
