Welcome to Portraits by Joanna


A portrait is an incredible gift - and I love taking your treasured photographs and creating something that is personal and unique for you. Portraits as heirlooms have been around for thousands of years - so why not be the first in your family to restart the tradition?

- All my portraits are painted with acrylic paint, known to be long-lasting and durable as well as giving a beautiful finish.

- I can use ashes of your loved one to create a lasting and meaningful portrait to treasure forever.

- My standard canvas sizes and prices can be seen on the price list page. The standard canvases I use are deep-edged but I can order thinner-edged canvases on request.

- I paint all the way round the edge of the portrait - so that the whole canvas, including edges, is covered.


- I work from photographs that you can upload on the order page or post to me.


- You can pay with Paypal or card. You pay half as a deposit and the rest when the painting is finished.


- It can take me up to 5 weeks to complete your painting.


Take a look around my gallery to see some examples of my portraits and other artwork.

I also work at tattoo studio in Hebden Bridge, West Yourkshire called Enigma Ink.

I look forward to hearing from you!...
