Welcome to Making Faces Illustration.

I create beautiful portraits of children.

I am Louisa, an art teacher and children’s portrait artist living in Norfolk. I paint, draw or illustrate portraits of children from photographs. I love doing commissions and work in a range of media including ink, watercolour, pencil and textile. I aim to bring out the character and personality of each individual child and each portrait is a work of art.

My portraits make wonderful and personal gifts for grandparents and godparents to treasure, and for you to display and enjoy in your home. I am always available for commissions via my online shop Click here to see a gallery of my work.
