Custom hand painted portraits

created for you in the UK

I am a Glasgow artist with many years of portrait experience working from clients images to capture in paint the personality of your pet or loved one on an original work of art you can treasure always.

Beautiful bespoke professionally hand painted portraits from your cherished photos of people or pets carefully created using some of the best quality artist materials like Winsor & Newton oil colours on premium cotton canvas for genuine traditional portraits for your home or office that can last generations.  

 Each portrait is a one off  original so the time to complete is dependent on how complicated the image, size of the painting, and the number of people or pets etc.

As a rough guide an oil painting can take me 2-3 weeks or more to finish , and no two portraits would ever be exactly the same.

Your actual original portrait painting is posted to you flat packed ready to frame
I do not do computer simulated prints, only genuine hand crafted art using traditional painting methods.

Paintings are  timeless artworks you can pass down through generations of your family - make them even more meaningful by commemorating special memories with original custom portrait paintings from pictures created especially for you in the UK.
