Happy Birthday Mam...
Today is my Mam's birthday, so last week I spent my time drawing her a portrait of my brother and I when we were younger. Although the photograph was taken about 23 years ago, I still really struggled to draw myself. I also find my brother very challenging as we have very similar features. However after days of persevering I eventually got there, and am over the moon with the results. I am so excited to see my Mam's face when she opens it! x

  1. Wow what a magnificent drawing. Your mother should be tickled pink with this.

  2. Thank you! She was over the moon and quite emotional! Worth all the hard work for the reaction.

  3. I am Anna's Mam and I can't even express how over the moon I was when I saw Anna's present. This has always been one of my favourite photos of my two darling children (now darling adults!) and I admit to being very emotional when Anna gave it to me. Thank you Anna, I will treasure it always. Love you loads, Mam

  4. Beautiful, and what a heartfelt response from your Mom! I really like your work :). Any thoughts on how your website is working out? I am considering the same service.... Alpacalindy@gmail.com

    1. Thank you for your kind comment! I created my website via gallereo.com, I was lucky enough to join up a while ago during a student promotion, meaning I didn't have to pay. I get quite a lot of traffic and find it a good place to direct potential clients so they can get a feel for what I do. It's easy to update and set up as it was created using one of gallereo's templates. I have a link to this page via my site as I do love to keep a blog with my work and progress, and find blogger quite an efficient way of doing so! Hope that helps, all the best, Anna x
