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)
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!
