All About Our Custom Illustration Portraits

All About Our Custom Illustration Portraits

Our portraits are completely hand illustrated, with many hours spent putting together a thoughtful vision. We hope our artwork brings you beautiful memories and a little bite of love! 


1. THE DETAILS: You will be contacted within 24 hours after your purchase. We will review the details of your order and the Artist will request UP TO (2) CLEAR COLOUR PHOTOS to reference for your customised art. 

After the customising details are received, the custom artwork will take up to 3 weeks to complete. If modifications or re-draws are requested by the client, they will be quoted at an additional fee. 

A copy of your completed custom artwork will be packaged and shipped out promptly. The arts are to be used under PERSONAL USE or GIFT GIFTING terms. It is not to be used in any other capacity unless reproduction or licensing rights are purchased from the Artist.

**Please kindly note: Any delay in processing by the client in regards to revisions or delayed communication with the artist/studio will result in a delayed lead time for the order and will void the initial lead time. A new timeline will then be re-assessed at the sole discretion of the artist based on her scheduling and availability.


Further Questions:

How many people fit in a portrait?
For our standard A4 sized portraits, we can fit anywhere between two to six persons! If you want to include a fur baby, that is fine by us.

Which photos should I send?
We illustrate directly from the photo references you send us so make sure they are as accurate as possible! The photo should show the full body of the individuals including the top of their head, down to their shoes. Keep in mind, we will illustrate the pose and outfit you are wearing in the photo. One photo is best but if you don’t have one that meets these requirements, you may attach an additional reference photo. High resolution photos are recommended, but iPhone photos are perfectly fine.

Can you make me the same portrait as the one from your Instagram?
Each of our custom portraits are shipped out as originals and therefore, are not re-sellable. However, we can create one customised just for you!

What is your Signature Style?

We believe less is more when it comes to creating timeless artworks. Each custom portrait is hand illustrated with our signature sleepy eyes and signed/dated on the bottom right corner by the artist. 
Can we add words / extra details?
Yes, we can further customise your portrait with detailed facial features, hand lettering or calligraphy. You may add the name of the couple or family or a special date in calligraphy, up to five words in length.

What is the turnaround time?
General processing lead times for each custom illustration is approximately three weeks from date of order confirmation & details/photos received. Please contact us at if you need the artwork urgently

What sizes do they come in? 
A4 is our standard size. We found that this size is perfect for wall hanging and home decor! For a statement piece, we also provide A3 size. Our artworks are printed on high quality art paper with vertical and horizontal options.

I want a family portrait, but I don't have a photo of all of us together. Can I still order one?
Absolutely! For larger groups, we can take multiple photo references. Please limit one photo per person (for example: if there are 5 family members, send no more than 5 photos!) and a separate photo that shows the height differences between members.

What type of outfit should I wear for my portrait?
Anything is fine really but to make it extra special, clothing with patterns or pops of colour brings out more character. For wedding dresses, we pay extra attention to the intricate details so they stand out from the white background. If you’d like to capture the scenic background of the photo, please contact us at Include your photo reference and we'd be happy to send you a custom quote!

I want to gift this portrait to my friend or family member, can you draw them for me?
Custom portraits make the perfect gift. A lot of our clients screenshot a beautiful image on Instagram and Facebook and send them in! If you need it by a specific date, be sure to let us know in the comment box of the form. We can ship the complete portrait to you OR directly to your friends!
