the perfect gift
A pencil portrait makes a very special 1st anniversary gift. I can draw it from any good clear photograph - either taken on the day of the wedding or, perhaps, on the honeymoon.
In fact, any favourite photograph of the couple can make a beautiful portrait.
Although, being paper, it makes an ideal first anniversary gift, it can also be an ideal thank-you gift for the bride or groom's parents.

I have had a house full of children this morning so didn't dare open it until just now! I haven't taken it out of the tissue either as it is so perfectly wrapped but was able to see through it and it looks fantastic!
I will present it to him on our anniversary and let you know what he thinks
Many thanks and best regards,
Lisha and Steven
This was one of a pair of portraits commissioned by Lisha for her husband on their anniversary.
Suffice to say that her jewellery was challenging to draw! She was pleased with the end result though.

I just wanted to say a BIG THANK YOU for the wonderful portraits! The image you sent through on e-mail does not justify the actual. The attention to detail is magnificent! My husband was speechless when I showed them to him! Thank you for making our first anniversary as memorable as our wedding day!
You have such talent, that words cannot express.
Mick and Fiona
When Mick commissioned his portrait, he asked me to include a romantic verse:
I love thee, I love but thee
With a love that shall not die
Till the sun grows cold,
And the stars grow old.......
He presented it to his wife during their anniversary meal at Michel Roux's restaurant in Bray.

I received the portrait on Friday and have been away for the weekend, so I apologise for not letting you know sooner.I opened the packaging with great anticipation and was overwhelmed when I saw your work; you are truly a very talented person.. It gave me goose bumps and nearly made me cry !!!
I have since had it framed and it looks breathtaking.
Thank you VERY MUCH.. I will let you know how it goes when I present it to Fiona
Kind regards and all the best for the future.
