portraits in pencil of people and pets by commission by artist, Jayne Edwards
Turn a photograph into a unique pencil portrait of your loved ones or pets. A beautiful keepsake for yourself or can be purchased as a gift.
Hello, my name is Jayne Edwards, I am a self taught artist, with a passion for drawing and love to create a beautiful detailed pencil portrait from a photograph.
Based around as detailed a photo as possible, a good shot is required, although unwanted background details can be excluded. Portraits are generally with a white background to focus attention on the subject. Obviously for a mainly white pet, a darker background would be incorporated to enhance the impact. Prices are based on an A4 size sketch. Please e-mail your photo and I will let you know if it is suitable and give you a price confirmation. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me, I will do my best to help and you are under no obligation. The menu keys above will take you to my contact details and pricing.
Here are some examples of my previous commissions and artwork.
Thankyou for your interest.
