Custom Pencil Portraits & Fine Art Pencil Drawings

I'm fascinated with the beauty of the world around me and passionate about sensitively and accurately capturing the essence of everything I draw. 
I take commissions for drawings of any kind and also have a range of drawings to purchase as either prints or greeting cards through my Shop.

If you would like to know more about my work or you'd like to talk about a commission, please get in touch.

Commission a pencil drawing as a unique and special memory or as a gift for a loved one.


My vision is to capture the essence of whatever I draw; whether that be child portraits, family portraits, pet portraits, animal portraits; or drawings of the natural world and memorable places.


I love to work with clients through the entire creative process, from choosing a photograph to use as the inspiration for the drawing, all the way through to ensuring that the finished drawing meets every hope and expectation.

"We are absolutely thrilled with our commission by Kelly. She has captured the personality and true essence of our puppy with meticulous attention to detail and fantastic communication skills throughout. I would recommend Kelly to anyone who wants quality and professionalism with a personal touch."
