Memorial paintings of loved ones

Remember loved ones who have passed with a memorial portrait.All artwork is hand painted or hand drawn using watercolour paint or graphite pencil on quality watercolour paper. I prepare a digital proof for client approval and from the moment this is agreed, the rest of the memorial portrait is completely hand painted.

"Conor painted two beautiful pictures for me, my wife Fiona and our two dogs Brody & Gizmo. When I brought them home my family couldn’t believe how good they were. It was very easy working with Conor and I would highly recommend him for any portrait paintings. Thank you for your wonderful work".
