Portraits & New Print Revealed...

Hello, I'm delighted that I can finally reveal these pics to you.  Before Christmas, I had a lovely commission to do 2 family group portraits printed onto canvas as Christmas gifts from a group of siblings to their cousins....


...they're very special portraits indeed, as they include personal messages and imagery from the children to their much loved cousins.  Now that Christmas is well and truly out of the way I can show these to you as hopefully these will be on the bedroom walls of the boys and girl they were created for...


...I did enjoy doing these as it had been a while since I'd done some portraits...and I do love the challenge of trying to get the likeness and expressions right.  I must confess that its children I enjoy drawing the most as they tend not to hide their emotions, so their expressions are endlessly fascinating, you really get a sense of their character within....



...I only hope the children these pictures were a gift for are enjoying looking at their portraits as much as I enjoyed creating them!....



...I can also reveal the first of my new prints to be listed on my website shop and Folksy shop.  This one comes from my new range of greetings cards which are off to the Spring Fair International in a couple of weeks time.   Father Ted fans may spot a little nod to the legendary Mrs Doyle within this illustration...well, my card range is all about tea, cake and chocolate, and Mrs Doyle is definitely my all time favourite tea lady!...


...You can now find this print in my Folksy shop here : 

I hope you have a great week!

  1. Thank you so much for creating such amazing gifts for me. They are gorgeous and capture the likeness of all the children perfectly.You are an incredibly talented lady and your work is flawless. I'm also grateful that you were so approachable and patient while we waited for my newest baby to arrive and for photos to be taken. You are a real star and I will definitely be back for another masterpiece soon. Thank you xx
