Pencil portraits of babies – introductory price of £95 unframed, £145 framed

Pencil portrait, 5″ x 7″

I have recently started drawing 5″ x 7″ portraits of babies and children using pencil on paper. I can work from photographs so commissioning me is an ideal for a special gift to a new family. I send you a voucher if you want to let the family choose which photograph to use, or else I can work from a photo of your choice and complete the portrait within a fortnight (please note that framing will take longer).

Please contact me if you are interested.


Commissioning a unique oil painting is a wonderful way to treasure those special moments. I love to paint subjects that evoke a real emotion for my clients – paintings that are personal and meaningful for them.

Organising a commission is easy.  It doesn’t matter whether you already have a firm idea, or whether you want to discuss potential options – we can talk it through together. We can talk about what sort of piece would work, and I can also email you images as I’m working so that you have a chance to feed into the overall work – if you so wish. If you live in London, I can meet you in advance to discuss where it might hand and therefore what size and colours might be suitable. Vera Vera on the Wall has written a fabulous post about organising a custom artwork that might also be interesting to read.

Depending on whether I am using pencil, acrylic or oil paint, commissions can take anywhere between 2 weeks and 2 months to make. I show how I paint one of my commissions, step by step here, and you can watch Lucy and Dave when they see their commission for the first time.

Interested in finding out more? Drop me a line at for a no-obligation chat to discuss your commission.

Gift certificates

I offer a range of gift certificates, making the perfect gift. I can make them out at any price, perfect for a bespoke commission or to go towards an original oil painting. To organise payment and shipping, please email me at and I’d be happy to help!

For any other sizes or with questions please contact me at for a personalised quotation.  I appreciate that paying for a piece of artwork in one go can be tricky, so I also offer a payment by installment plan. We agree the monthly amount that you will pay and when you have successfully paid the total amount, I will then deliver your artwork to you.


I can ship commissions to any part of the world. We can establish the shipping price before I start work on your commission and as always, I can also email you images of the work in progress to make sure that it’s 110% perfect for you
