Hello, I’m Katie House, a professional portrait artist based in Plymouth, Devon. My passion for art led me to gain my creative degree in illustration at Plymouth University, and since then, I have worked hard to build and develop my artistic skills and my business, Katie House Portrait Artist.
One of my favourite parts of creating bespoke commissions is the wonderful people and pets I get to know along the way. I love to learn lots about the pets or people I am going to recreate, to allow their individual character to shine through. Please feel free to get in touch to discuss your portrait needs.
I’m passionate about creating both an accurate likeness and allowing the subject’s unique personality to shine through, which I think can make a portrait extra special and different from a photograph. I work with traditional and messy media including graphite pencil and watercolour, using only the finest artist-quality materials and methods, which I learned in my creative degree, to ensure your portrait will remain vibrant and preserved for years to come. I also offer a wide range of services such as:
Communication with customers throughout the process is key to the success of a portrait. With this in mind when you commission a portrait we will have a friendly chat to find out what you are looking for. After the initial consultation just send your photo via email or post and I can get started on your design.
You’ll receive a monthly newsletter, which will showcase latest work, detail upcoming events, any offers or spaces that become available and also be in line for a portrait for the following year.
Send me a message or give me a call if you would like to find out more about my services.
