The Portrait Painting

Celia only uses professional quality oil paint and the finest artist canvas for all her paintings to ensure that your painting will last for years to come.  All paintings are painted on a 40mm deep edge stretched canvas – which does not require any framing and are sold unframed. Paintings can however still be framed afterwards for decorative purposes.


Contemporary vs Traditional Portraits

I paint contemporary style portraits as well as traditional portraits of people as well as pets. Contemporary portraits are modern, single, square portrait paintings with an abstract background, suitable for the most modern home decor. Traditional Portraits are suitable for group portraits, family portraits or oil painting portraits with a more traditional feel.

The above are both suitable for human an pet portraits.
