Hand drawn Portraits of People, Pets and Wildlife
My name is Sophie Patel and I am an artist residing in Bedfordshire, UK. I specialise in portraiture of people, pets and wildlife and I work in Graphite and Coloured Pencil. My work is realistic in style whilst retaining an artistic quality that is soft and delicate with careful attention to detail. I always have a special focus on the eyes, I feel they are vital to portraying character, personality and warmth.
You can commission me directly for a bespoke portrait using your own photos or I can use my own sources to find the perfect reference(s) for your requirements. A great reference photo is key to producing a portrait with detail and a great likeness. More details of how to choose your reference photo can be found
When I am working on my own pieces I choose pieces that capture my heart and my imagination. I fall in love with beautiful images and use them to create something I love. Much of my original artwork can be seen and purchased via my Etsy Store. Some of these pieces are also available as prints and on merchandise such as Greeting Cards, mugs and coasters.
