Mairi Layne Portraits



I began creating graphite portraits as gifts for family and friends, and have been practicing the art for the past 11 years.  For portraits a high quality  photo that clearly shows the details of the face is ideal.  I can also take multiple photos  of different people and put them together in one portrait.


As an additional option, I can also take an old family photo and 'restore' it by recreating it in graphite. Following size options are available:

  • 5"x7" (1 subject only)

  • 9"x12"

  • 12"x17"

Miniature Paintings


I can make miniature paintings with a scene of your choice: landscape, animal portrait, etc. (see Artwork page for examples).   These come with the following options:

  • 4"x4"  with magnet

  • 2.5"x2.5" with magnet

  • 2.5"2.5" on a miniature easel

These make a great gift for any occasion!
