Welcome to LivvyPortraits.
I am a Hampshire Portrait Artist specialising in children.
I have been drawing and painting people professionally for 30 years and trained at Heatherleys School of Portraiture & Figurative Art in London.
I have always had a fascination with the human structure, and especially the face. I love the fact that every face is totally unique and I like to delve into the essence of my subjects. I try to inject emotion and drama into my portraits and I pride myself on capturing their true likeness and character
My background is in design and illustration, I worked in London in the design and advertising industry until I moved to Hampshire 20 years ago. I now paint full time in my studio aswell as running regular drawing and painting courses where I get a chance to share my knowledge and passion.
Please feel free to browse the gallery to see examples of my work. If you have any questions or would like to schedule a consultation, please don't hesitate to contact me. I look forward to hearing from you!
