A house portrait makes a wonderfully personal and unique gift for a birthday, anniversary, Christmas or, of course, on the occasion of moving into a new home. It can also be a special reminder of an old home or a house that has been special in your life.

All my house portraits are original watercolours painted with archival quality paints on hand-pressed cotton rag paper, meaning your painting can be considered an heirloom.

The process is very simple and straightforward: email me 2-3 photos of the home you would like painted. Don’t worry about ‘unattractive’ features such as bins, roadsigns, or cars parked in the street — I can leave these out of the final piece! I will complete a drawing and email this to you for approval. Once this has been approved, I will go ahead with completing the painting which will then be sent to you via secure courier.

The whole process normally takes 6-8 weeks. However, if you require a quicker turnaround, please don’t hesitate to contact me, as this may be possible at quieter times.

A3: £450

A4: £325
