Custom Pencil Artwork that tells your story.
Which part of your life has a story worth sharing?
I create hand drawn portraits that inspire you to 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 good photograph to work from, I can draw it!
I love creating art that helps people connect to what means most.
Hello, I’m Sarah Kelly - portrait artist, photographer; coffee lover, observer.
I’ve been drawing for as long as I can remember.
While it always came naturally, 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 created with love in my home studio based in Oakville ON.
I look forward to co-creating a memorable portrait with you.
