I've always been interested in art, but my Artist journey started in 2016 (unintentionally!)

I took a photo of my horse, Twix, and just thought... I HAVE to draw that! And I did. I posted a photo on Facebook and BOOM- I got a lot of portrait requests! I wasn't expecting it!

Anyway- my name is April!

I'm a 21 year old Portrait Artist in the Essex countryside!

I offer graphite, which is what I started with, but over the years my style has evolved and now I also offer my unique Ink-and-Watercolour style!

Outside of working I enjoy training my Border Collies for agility, taking photos and also Bullet Journalling! (Find these Social Media links at the bottom of the page.)

I am currently doing extensive planning in to a YouTube channel with art related tutorials, so stay tuned for that!

In 2021 I also want to work on honing my pencil/pastel pencil skills! Eek!

My portrait diary is always OPEN! 

However I do get pretty full up, especially from around August with Christmas portraits so get in touch to secure your space!

2021 Spaces remaining: 3
