My passion is to paint people and animals using a unique vision and tone. I like to capture the personality of the subject, hopefully peep into the soul of the subject.

I work from photographs supplied by you.  All my portraits are created 100% by hand with love and I don't use any digital techniques ever.

How the process works

Every commission starts with a phone or email conversation between you and me where I can get to know you and we can talk about what sort of portrait you would like. I will tell you how long your portrait will take to create after I have received all required information to get started.

Once we've agreed on the style of your custom artwork, you need to pay a deposit of just 15% of the total amount. I will then complete your portrait and you will only pay the remaining balance if you are completely satisfied.

"Love it" guarantee

I want you to absolutely love your art. All my clients have so far! So I will stay in touch with you and show you my progress so that you are see the journey and are 100% delighted with the work.

If you would like to commission a portrait of yourself, a family member or even your pet, start by choosing a style:

Then all you have to do is email your favourite photos to me, Sharon Platt, at sharonplatt@me.com and then I'll get in touch with you to discuss your portrait.
