Which part of your life has a story worth sharing?
I create hand drawn portraits that help you celebrate a special someone, story, passion or achievement.
By using one or several of your favorite photographs as reference, I bring out the personality and character of your favorite people, pets or passions to become the enhanced focal point of a special piece of artwork, that you had a part in creating.
The love, passion and energy infused into every portrait brings new life to your favorite photos, and helps you reconnect to the stories and memories that lie within.
Portraits can be of any subject matter. If I have a photograph to work from, I can draw it!
Helping you align, celebrate and reconnect to the things in life that matter, with realistic hand drawn portraits that infuse your heart, nurture your soul and fuel your passions.
Hello, I'm Sarah Kelly - portrait artist, photographer, coffee lover, observer; southpaw, ambivert. While drawing had always come naturally to me, studying fine arts at Sheridan College in Oakville, ON sparked the desire to learn the art of realistic drawing. A noted drawing of water ripples in a textbook was a defining and inspiring moment.
Since 2005 I have been creating custom portraits for individuals, businesses and associations, families, newlywed couples, husbands, wives and loving pet owners. Each portrait is joyfully created in my home studio based in Oakville, ON.
I love creating art that helps people connect to what means most.
