Portraits are a very personal and unique present that also create a lasting memory. 
There are three key ingredients for the perfect portrait. A talented artist, quality materials, and a great photo. Choosing a good photo and the right subject matter is the essential ingredient for creating a meaningful and memorable portrait.
Some things to consider when choosing your portrait photo:
Who is the portrait for and why?

Whether it's for your mum on mothers day, your  wedding anniversary, or your dad's 50th birthday or even just a special gift for yourself, chances are, if you are considering ordering a hand-painted custom portrait it's because you want to do something meaningful and unique to show your love and celebrate an important milestone or person in your life.

What matters most to the person receiving the portrait?

Now is the time to think about your photo choice, the colours you want in your painting and any other small, personal touches that you know are important to the the recipient.

What photo captures a special memory?

Special photos make portraits more special for everyone involved, from the artist, to the recipient, right through to the next generation of people who see it proudly displayed in your home.


Together we can work together to create the perfect portrait for your you or your loved one and create a  meaningful & personalised piece of art that will be treasured for many years to come.
