Artist, illustrator, tea drinker

My name is Saoirse and I am an artist and children’s book illustrator living in Poole, Dorset!

I love drawing, I spend most of my spare time doodling on things and anything whimsical always fires my imagination.

After setting up my little shop in 2016 I got straight to work creating quirky pet and family portraits for people all over the world. I feel incredibly privileged to be able to do what I love full time, and it's thrilling seeing people come to life on paper!

I work from home in my little work area, keeping myself cosy with lots of tea and music. I offer a large range of different custom portrait for all kinds of occasions and work traditionally using watercolours or inks. I also create digital illustrations using my trusty iPad Pro, which is really effective for portraits that require lots of details.

Although I work mostly in watercolours and inks, I occasionally dabble with oils and acrylics. Keep your eyes peeled, every so often a little OOAK item like a painted wooden plaque or wood slice makes an appearance, but then disappears pretty quickly!

I am inspired by nature and folklore, so my prints, notebooks and other creations often feature unicorns, pixies and mermaids with the odd centaur thrown in for good measure.

Frequently asked questions
I don’t have a photo of my family or pets all together for my custom portrait, can I send separate photos?

Yes! The great thing about my custom portraits is that they are all custom drawn from scratch, so I can use lots of different photos to create an illustrated likeness in my style and then place everyone together in a composition that works well for your portrait. Simply send as many photos as you’d like in a message to me after purchase. It’s really helpful to see some photos of the kind of clothing the subjects wear too, so I can really bring their personality through in the picture.

How many pets can I include my portrait of my family?

Up to 4 pets are included in the listed price! If you would like me to draw more pets in your picture, just send me a message and we can discuss your requirements!
