Looking to capture a special memory or looking for a personal gift for a dear friend or family member?
I paint my portraits from photographs so there's no sitting still for hours on end and no travel costs. It also means that, so long as you have access to a photograph (digital ideally but necessary), the portrait can be a surprise if it's intended as a gift.
I have painted portraits as gifts on significant birthdays and anniversarys, as gifts for grandparents and also wedding gifts. (If you wish to give a portrait as a wedding present let me know in advance so I can book the time to complete the painting as soon after the wedding as possible.)
You may just want to treat yourself to a picture of your loved ones - who needs a reason?
Choose from oil, acrylic, watercolour or pencil.
