Portrait Artist Specialising in Weddings, Entertainment, Lifestyle

Portrait Artist - World Record Holder - 220 images in 12 hours.
 

I’m also a professional live-illustrator.  I create on-the- spot, bespoke images that make events & brand experiences special.

 

Interaction, sharing and word of mouth are increasingly important for brands.

There’s a growing need to add value to samples, purchases and events.

My work connects individuals, brand and consumer in a meaningful, personal way.

Bloggers, shoppers, journalists and VIPs can watch their portrait taking shape - sharing on social media.

I can paint a mural, run a workshop, or embellish your packaging.

I’ll work with you on clever & memorable concepts to suit your promotion, product, venue or audience.  An irresistible hook, my work never fails to get the conversation flowing and to initiate valuable communication.

We’re brimming with ideas. Give me a call!

“Having a live illustrator at the event meant that everyone was busy social media-ing themselves which amplified the event publicity tenfold!

I offer a friendly and professional service, the key to which is good communication with my subjects.

When you commission a portrait I chat to you by phone or email to find out exactly how you would like your portrait to appear. I work hard to make sure that you are satisfied with your finished artwork. Clients always receive an opportunity to check and approve a photo of their portrait before it is finished, and I don’t consider it completed until you are happy and as a result I have many returning customers.
