Below are examples from previous customer orders. On the left you have the photo that was provided by the customer for inspiration, and the image on the right is the hand drawn portrait. When a customer places their order they can request a specific colour background, choosing a colour that will match and fit in with  their room decoration.

Alternatively the background colour choice can be left to me, and I will choose colours that work well with the portrait.  Every customer receives a portrait proof before it goes to print, it is here you can decide on the background colour shade. 

How It Works

Step One
Portrait Size

We offer six paper sizes for portraits, once you've decided the right size for you, choose if you would like your portrait framed, then place your order! 

Step Two
Let me do my thing!

Once I have received your photos I will get drawing! Please allow up to 7 working days for your portrait to be completed! 

Step Three
Background Colour

When your portrait is complete, I will email you a digital proof with various background colour choices. You can then suggest any amends to the portrait and background colour.

Step Four
Print and Posted

Once your portrait has been approved, it will be printed and gift wrapped (if you have requested) and posted out to you!

It's that simple!
