About me

Hi there! My name's Britt. I'm a 20-year-old student from the Netherlands. I currently live in the city Tilburg, where I study Communication and Information sciences at Tilburg University. As you can tell, my course is (unfortunately) not related to art at all. As a 12-year-old girl, I taught myself how to draw portraits by watching many, many YouTube videos. I practiced for years and in the end, I was able to make realistic portraits! At the age of 17 I moved out for university and I pretty much stopped drawing. Apparently, a freaking pandemic was necessary to make me pick up my pencils again (very sad, I know). I found out that I still enjoyed drawing as much as when I was younger and I hadn't lost my skills! Drawing really helped me through the endless weeks of quarantine. Now that I sell portraits on Etsy, I enjoy drawing even more, because the customers are so kind and grateful!

My materials
The pencils that I used are the Faber Castell pencils (9000 series). The pencils are in a pretty dark green box, which was the inspiration for my shop icon! I draw on Fabriano recycled A4-format paper (120gr). I also use a kneaded eraser for highlights, another tiny eraser for the details (and mistakes), and cotton buds for blending (because I'm not a professional after all (;).

Frequently asked questions

Can you use different references/photos for a drawing of multiple people?

Yes, I can use different photos and put them together in my drawing. However, it depends on the quality/angle/lightning of the photos. I'll first edit the pictures together to see if it will work and then I'll let you know!

What is the packaging of the drawing like?

I put your drawing in a plastic folder and a carbon envelope to protect it. I will also fixate your drawing with a spray to keep it from smudging or fading in the future.

Do you ship internationally?

Yes I ship internationally! Keep in mind that shipping times will differ depending on your location.

What is the size of a drawing?

I draw on A4 paper, which is 8,3 x 11,7 inches or 21 x 29,7 cm.
