Custom Pencil Artwork that tells your story.
Which part of your life has a story worth sharing?
I create hand drawn portraits that inspire and invite 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, passions or achievements.
They become the enhanced focal point of a uniquely original piece of artwork that you have a part in creating.
The love, passion and energy that I infuse into every portrait brings new life to your favorite images, and help 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!
(A good reference photo will make the difference between a good portrait….and a GREAT portrait.)
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 since I was old enough to hold a pencil in my hand.
While drawing always did come naturally for me, studying fine arts at Sheridan College in Oakville ON sparked the desire to really 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 an inspiring portrait that tells a story for you.
