Portrait Artists

The 15 Minute Portrait Studio

A Contemporary take on traditional  seaside portrait artists.  

Artists are invited to consider their own response to the Portrait, using any medium or style of their choice, from sketching, painting, sculpture, conceptual, digital etc. Various guest artists will join us throughout the year.  Drop in and get your portrait done in under 15 minutes, and leave with original artwork for just £15.  #yourfacemyart

See calendar for the next sessions

We can also bring our Portrait studio to your premises! Great fun for Parties, Weddings and so on.  Get in touch for a quote for your function.


Gazelle creates colourful digital drawings on her ipad, which are then printed onto  high quality archival papers - with a wireless printer.  Her portraits from #yourfacemyart are going to form a book of portratis.   She is an artist living in St.Ives

Joe Greenaway

Joe creates expressive portraits, often working on very large canvasses.  His style mixes up realism with a grafitti aesthetic.

Joe is from St.Ives, and will be making a guest appearance in December creating quick drawings on paper for #yourfacemyart

Erin Lacy

Erin is an illustrator and print maker and for her portraits, combines mono-printing and layered motif printing, with expressive drawings to create her dreamlike portraits.   

Erin also runs her own paint company 'Pick Pretty Paints', based in the Sloop Craft Studios, in St.Ives.


Bobby Wotnot

Bobby Wotnot is better known for his abstract drawings, built up with tiny dots and marks. 

For these portrait sessions he will be drawing tiny profile portraits onto shards of pottery found on the beaches of St.Ives.  Reminiscent of Greek Ostraca, these are then presented in a decorated gift box, in a 'Wotnot' style!
