House portraits make the perfect gift for birthdays, house warming, retirement or even as a special Valentine’s present. Having a hand-painted picture of a home can be one way of holding onto special memories if you are moving out. Because I work to commission, each picture is highly unique and something to be treasured. Having an original watercolour can also be used in marketing, when advertising a property for sale (or rent). This can often generate extra interest and it may just be the thing that makes it stand out from the rest. Images can also be used on letter-headed stationary or as personalised notelets.

I have been painting commissioned architectural portraits for over 20 years. Both residential homes and commercial properties, such as shops, restaurants and cafes make excellent subjects. I graduated with an Honours Degree in Visual Communication, specialising in Illustration at Kent Institute of Art and Design in 1999 and I have a Masters Degree in Art Therapy from Queen Margaret University (2002).

Having a portrait of your property is easy and affordable. I like to work on location if possible, but I am also happy to work from photographs. In the past, I have even done portraits from aerial photographs. If you send me a photograph of the property and let me know of any specific requirements, such as specific flora that you would like included or aerials and bins that you might want to be excluded, then this can be considered.

Just get in touch and you will receive your unique drawing or picture by email. If you are happy with the draft image then I will send the original artwork, upon receipt of payment. Please note that images made may be used on the website, unless you specify that you would rather they were not used in this way. Confidentiality is respected and any personal details, such as addresses will not be used on the website.
