What People Are Saying

"Linda painted portraits of our two children when they were aged around 10 and 8. They are now wonderful representations of how they looked then, catching perfectly their expressions. It is a pleasure to have them now when they are adults...a very worthwhile investment!"
Evelyn Burke O'Neill

"An important family milestone was coming up and I wanted to mark the occasion by commissioning a portrait. I chose Linda for the job because I'd seen her work online. She is such a talented artist and I love that her charcoal sketches are so true to form and lifelike. The whole process was so easy, Linda kept in touch with me regularly and the artwork was delivered to my door safely, within our agreed time frame. We are delighted with our finished pieces!"
Celine Byrne

"Linda, we would like to thank you for producing such masterpieces- we couldn't have imagined that they would turn out this good! Wishing you all the very best in the future!"
Michael O'Reilly

Portrait Commissions

Being an avid ‘people-watcher,’ I have a particular affinity for drawing and painting faces! Twenty years ago, I began painting portraits for family and friends. I found the process endlessly fascinating- and still do today. After many years of experimentation, I've now developed my own personal style of contemporary portraiture, and recently I have been experiencing an increasing demand for these special pieces.
Commissioning a portrait is a very personal experience and one that I strive to make interesting and enjoyable too. Typically, I will arrange a meeting with the sitter where I make preliminary sketches and take photographs to work from later. If you would like to have your favourite photo turned into a work of art, that is also an option too.
Prices vary according to the number of sitters, the size of the painting and the level of detail but as a guide, a "head-and-shoulders" portrait painting starts from €300, while a "head-and-shoulders" pencil portrait starts from €130.
" There is a landscape contained in a face, a soul behind a pair of eyes, levels of ambiguity in a gesture."

Other Commissions

I am also available to undertake specific, landscape, townscape or still-life commissions. For example, I have painted people's family homes, buildings, places of interest and even pets!
