What clients have said:
“Thanks again Catherine, you’ve been a joy to work with and you’ve captured the girls beautifully. We will treasure the painting for many years.”
“I just had to write and say how thrilled we both are with the portrait – it is amazing. I was so wowed by it when I saw it, I was speechless…I can’t wait to get the picture home.”
“absolutely beautiful portraits…I have just opened them and was in tears…I couldn’t have wished for more…thank you”
“So very pleased with the portraits – you have captured them both perfectly.”
“P absolutely loved the painting…There were quite a few tears shed by all concerned. Thank you again for such a lovely painting.”

How it works:
Your portrait starts with an initial sitting of pencil studies and photographic notes. Sittings for child portraits can take place where they feel most relaxed – in their own home. They can also be arranged in my studio on the southern edge of Bath if this is more convenient for you.
I will produce a photographic plan of the painting in advance, taking a fifty per cent deposit only after this plan meets with your approval. There is another viewing nearer to completion where small adjustments can be made.
I will use translucent, professional watercolours for your portrait on a “canvas” of acid-free watercolour board which can be framed on top of the mount for a contemporary look.
Framing and events unveiling possible.

Giclee Prints:
Once your portrait is completed, I can create professional art prints of the image which make excellent family gifts and is a way for other loved ones to share in the portrait.

Head and shoulder portrait (55cms square) from £950 unframed.
