A photograph is a lovely thing to remember someone by, but the lines of a pen & ink portrait can really bring the person to life – particularly if the original photo is a little blurry, as can be the case with very old images, such as those of WW1 soldiers.  A piece of original artwork is also a wonderful thing to be able to pass on to the next generation.

If you have an old family photograph, I can use the image to create an accurate pen & ink drawing of that person, or group of people. All I need is a high resolution scan of the original photograph – I can even work from a blurry one.  The perfect gift for the genealogy enthusiast in the family.

If you have a family member who fought in WW1 or WW2 – or if there’s a military person that you particularly admire – and you would like me to bring them to life in pen & ink, please send me a message through my contact page.

I’m happy to discuss any project, whatever the size.
