Having shared the story behind this particular commission with you I thought you may like to see the finished canvases. Well, here they are in their finished glory!...and the printers did a brilliant job as ever. It is a shame the photographs just don't do the print quality justice - the colours on the real thing are stunning.

I am very excited today, as I have a few new canvas portrait prints over at the printers this week and I can't wait to see them all finished.

This past week has had me putting in some 'quality time' with ink pens, illustrator & photoshop ;-)
I've got a number of commissions to work on at the moment. Most are personalised portraits and a couple are Christmas themed commissions for businesses.
I've had a very productive past week and have enjoyed getting stuck in to all the work. However, as everything is all work in progress at the moment and will not be ready to reveal on here for a number of weeks, I thought it might be a nice idea to share a quick 'cheeky peek at work done last week'. In fact, I may make this a regular feature, so watch this space!
Hope you enjoy having a quick peep!
Oh, and if you spot something I'm working on for you, please remember these are works in progress - I'll be in touch very soon!

These are the A6 cards I've just received from the printers. They're printed on a premium 350gsm stock and come with a plain white envelope in packs of 4 for £5.50 inc postage (UK), packs of 8 for £8.50 inc postage or packs of 20 for £19 inc postage.
I've also filled my online shop with a range of ready to purchase prints and ready to order Artbox prints - please check them out (there's a link on the right of the screen).

The portrait of the dogs was printed onto artbox and is a tribute to the late spaniel and labrador featured in the portrait. Both were the hard working, loyal companions of a game keeper.
The family portrait was a birthday present designed specifically to complement the furnishings in a particular room. There are alot of personal symbolic images included in this portrait. For example, the tartan skirt the little girl is wearing is the tartan for the family name of the lady this portrait was created for. The owl in the tree symbolises a past family member who was a RSPB member and particulary fond of owls. The ice-cream van is of a van belonging to a favourite ice-cream company well known in the part of North-Devon that this family originate from.
As you can see, I love putting as much subtle personal detail into my work as possible so that the person receiving my portrait will treasure it forever.

Hi, I'm a very busy lady at the moment, I've been focusing on updating my website and getting my on-line shop sorted out ahead of all the school autumn craft fairs and the lead up to (ahem!)...Christmas.
Please have a look at what I've been up to by clicking on the Gallery Shop link on this blog - some of the areas of my website are still under construction, but feel free to have a nose around - I'd welcome any comments or feedback.
Many thanks & ciao for now!

This weeks Illustration Friday topic is 'Star Gazing'. It comes at a time when my thoughts are turning to creating Christmas themed work to sell over the next few months through my website and at craft markets.

Here is my first ever attempt at Illustration Friday. The subject this week is 'Double'. I'm a big fan of finding fun ways to educate my children so I liked the idea of doubling up numbers...and what better way to illustrate that than the way rabbits quickly multiply!

As this is the first post on this blog, please allow me to introduce myself.
To put it simply, I draw. I have always drawn, from the moment I could hold a crayon for the very first time. What I love most of all is drawing people and places. So, I am delighted when I get commissions for personalised maps and portraits for special occasions.
For a completely unique gift to make any occasion extra special, my illustrative portraits are an ideal present. If you send me some photos of your loved one with a bit of detail about their interests and hobbies, I will create a beautiful, framed portrait of them. I like to work with you to bring to life any ideas that you may have.
My portraits and bespoke maps are all hand drawn then scanned and digitally coloured, and cost from £20 each. Portraits can either be presented mounted and framed or printed onto canvas. I also print to order my quirky, whimsical illustrations as limited edition framed or canvas prints.
