About SpiritedPortraits

Sales 1,705
On Etsy since 2012

Dreamer, artist, musician, chocoholic!

If you could see inside my head, you would see stacks of fabulous paintings and undeveloped ideas tumbling all over the place, rather like a cluttered room in the Tardis - definitely infinite on the inside!

Unfortunately, I'm only human, living on/in linear time, with limited hours with which to realize these ideas, so I do the best I can and sometimes I bring to life other people's ideas too... for instance there was the wonderful large canvas winged unicorn, rearing against a stormy sky, which I was privileged to paint one year... then there are the book covers, internal illios and theatre posters I have been involved with, and a certain .gif of lots of revolving faces of Doctor Who to celebrate an anniversary... not to mention all the portraits I love doing. From an early age I have been engaged in trying to capture that elusive spark of life in my portraits - that hint of the personality of the subject - so hard to hold down...

I grew up in Yorkshire, overlooking the Aire valley and in sight of Ilkley moor - wonderful places to play on long summer days...
I spent a lot of time exploring on my bike, or walking the dog, or in my room playing my guitar, reading, painting, sewing and drawing. I've never been bored in my own company, which is good when you spend a lot of hours at your desk for a job!

Now my life as a wife and mother is somewhat busier and certainly less carefree, but I still try and find time to tackle some of the tumbledown projects in my head...and carry on making music. My daughter and I are taking our Violin grades and trying to see who gets to grade 5 first! How did I get into this?!

Welcome to my shop. :-)

I am a freelance artist, based in the UK, specializing in realistic portraiture. My favourite mediums to work with are pencils, watercolor and acrylic paint.

I have been a professional artist for over 20 years and have worked in the trading card industry since 2007, as a sketch card artist. My work has featured on many licenced TV and film memorabilia sets for Strictly Ink, Cult Stuff, Breygent and Topps Inc, The Pernas and Versicolor. Card sets I have worked on include; CSI, Doctor Who, 2000AD, Hammer Horror, New Avengers, Professionals, Indiana Jones Masterpieces, Bettie Page, The Hobbit, Vampirella, Red Sonja and Star Wars Galaxy.

I also provide illustrations for Fanzines and Charity Anthologies, and artwork for book covers, comic covers, theatre productions and Audio. My clients include BBC Worldwide, BBC Studios, Tenth Planet, Big Finish Productions, and Titan Comics.

I've attended many Sci-Fi, TV and Film Memorablilia, and Doctor Who conventions in the UK, Los Angeles, Philadelphia and Germany, exhibiting and selling original artwork and prints.

My artwork and sketch cards are in private collections all over the world.

I am currently offering for sale a large range of prints, greetings cards and original artworks, including sketch cards and larger pieces too...

Thank you for stopping by and feel free to send me a message if you have any queries, or you would like to commission a unique piece of artwork, based on what you have seen here.
