My name is Alannah, I am a portrait artist living and working in Somerset, England. I specialise in creating realistic portraits from your own photographs to create a lifelong memory of your loved ones. A portrait makes the perfect gift!
After studying Fine Art and Design and gaining a degree at the University Of Creative Arts I have continued to draw a mixture of contemporary, wildlife and commissioned work. I slowly received more and more commissions for people's families and pets and I now specialise in highly detailed traditional family and pet portraits in either graphite pencil or coloured pencil.
I pride myself on my attention to detail and the ability to capture the individual personality of each person or animal. In my opinion, a drawing is much more personal than a photograph and brings the subject to life on the paper, capturing the emotion and creating a feeling of comfort.
Send me your favourite photographs either via email or in the post and I will create a special, one of a kind portrait for you. I can provide a full mounting and framing service if you wish and I can even provide prints of your portraits too for your family and friends.
I will send you pictures throughout the process of your drawing, so that you are able to gradually see your beloved family or pet come to life on the paper.
Please take a look around my website and feel free to contact me if you have any questions or would like to book in with me to have your very own family or pet portrait drawn!
