Connie – Commissioned Pencil Portrait

Connie is the most adorable baby, and was an absolute pleasure to draw. You may know her big sister, Bess, whose portrait I drew a few years ago. Now both girls have their portraits proudly hung in their home.

The client, Connie and Bess’s mum, chose to have prints made of this portrait as gifts for family which is a wonderful way to share your portrait with loved ones.

It is always exciting and a little nerve-wracking waiting to hear that the portrait has arrived safely, so I was delighted to receive this message:

‘The three portraits arrived safely this morning and I wasn’t prepared for the emotion I felt when I saw the original. It brought tears to my eyes and perfectly embodies my little Connie (back when she was really little!)’
