Arts Depot showcase

Arts  Depot spring showcase 2019.JPG

A couple of my drawings are on sale as part of Arts Depot’s Spring showcase. This has turned out to be a great local venue for showing my artwork, and this will be the fourth time. I feel much better having them up on a wall for the public to see rather than stashed away in a cupboard! It’s also led to new portrait commissions as well as sales. Thanks Arts Depot!

Happy 1st Birthday Artlal

It's exactly a year since I launched Artlal and began the brilliant job of creating portraits and artwork for other people. It's been a fantastic learning journey and I feel ridiculously lucky to have had such great support and opportunities from friends and strangers alike. Looking forward to the next chapter and cardboard/canvas challenges!

And the winner is...

First commission of the year

Here's my first 2019 commission delivered to a proud dad for his birthday, drawn in oil pastels from his favourite photo. His wife texted to say their daughter 'definitely recognises herself, she keeps pointing to it!'

It’s always a pleasure to get a ‘cardboard commission’, and I did this portrait early in the summer. It went down a treat this week as an anniversary gift so can now be shared!

6 faces

This oil painting was a good challenge with 6 faces (the dog counts!) in time for a proud grandad’s birthday. After its surprise reveal at his party, his daughter got in touch,

‘Just to let you know Dad cried when he saw the painting (in a good way!) They loved it thanks so much.’

Mission accomplished!

I had the pleasure of personally delivering this portrait to Jo, commissioned by her husband for her birthday. Her reaction? ‘The best birthday present I’ve received’ Mission accomplished!

Spring Offer put to good use

Here's my latest portrait which went down a treat as a dad's surprise 50th birthday present. 

Google tells me Spring officially ends 30th June!  That means there's still time to take advantage of the Spring offer of 25% off all commissioned portraits! If someone you know has a special occasion coming up get in touch for more details.
