    The gift of a bespoke portrait created in pencil always evokes quite an emotional response. Whether it be a drawing of a loved one who has passed or a family pet you have had for years, a hand drawn portrait never fails to bring a tear to the eye of the recipient. Many people commissioning me to do a drawing for them, are often giving the drawing as a special gift for a birthday or Christmas. Why not, a portrait of a cherished person or animal has so much love and happy memories attached to it, that it is the gift that never stops giving. 


    I have scaled all my pencil portrait prices so they are affordable to all. A beautifully hand drawn A5 starts from as little as £150, going right up to £1500 and above for A2/A1 full colour pencil portraits. Please get in touch I’d love to hear from you and discuss your requirements.

    When I send final proofs of drawings to my customers they are always amazed at the likeness and realism of the drawings, but they do always say, the photographs are nothing compared to how impactful the drawing is when they see it in real life. It is a true passion of mine to create the very best portraits in pencil possible, which is why I insist on the reference being high quality, as I say if the reference doesn’t have the detail the drawing certainly won’t.
