Pencil Sketch Portrait for Carmen from Northampton, England

January 2014 - Northampton, England

I could not be any happier with the portrait Angela sketched for me. Not only is it exactly like the original photograph but Angela has managed to capture the 'essence' of it too. This shows her true talent.

I was almost scared to open the sketch when it arrived because I thought it would look different to the photo and I would be disappointed. I was wrong. I am so pleased with it. The whole process from original inquiry to final delivery was handled smoothly and efficiently with frequent emails and sample scans. Angela really listened and understood what I wanted. I cant wait to commission more sketches and would highly recommend Angela.


Pencil Sketch Portrait for Lyn from Brierley Hill, England

January 2014 - Brierley Hill, England

I was absolutely thrilled with the sketch of the church in which my daughter was married. It was for a paper wedding anniversary gift and I certainly made the correct choice of gift. I was so pleased I am already sorting out a further wedding photograph for another sketch which is to go on the wall in my lounge. Thank you for a beautiful piece of art.

Pencil Sketch Portrait for Melanie from Campagnac-lès-Quercy, France

January 2014 - Campagnac-lès-Quercy, France

I commissioned 5 pencil drawings of nieces and nephews as Christmas gifts and was absolutely delighted with the results. Angela captured each of the children perfectly and all the parents were thrilled with the portraits when they opened them on Christmas morning! Also, and importantly, the whole process of ordering was simple and efficient, with delivery to my home in France effected comfortably within the time-frame promised. All in all, a huge success. Thank you so much Angela - you are extremely talented and I would have no hesitation in recommending you to friends. Happy 2014!

Pencil Sketch Portrait for Sarah from Hastings, England

December 2013 - Hastings, England

We researched several pencil sketch portrait artists online before choosing Angela to portray two images from our wedding day. The service was friendly, relaxed and very prompt. Not to mention the fact that we are absolutely delighted with our sketches. Angela is a talented lady and we cannot wait to commission another sketch in the near future.


Pencil Sketch Portrait for Jan from Wokingham, England

December 2013 - Wokingham, England

Angela recently did a sketch of my daughters horse Harvey, I gave her very short notice that I wanted this done for my daughter 21st. Angela did say this may not be ready in time so I decided it would be a Xmas present. However, she finished the sketch in time and kept me informed throughout. The picture is stunning and Harvey looks very handsome. My daughter is going to be over the moon tomorrow (Sat 7th) when she opens this on her 21st, I cannot wait to see her face! Thank you so much Angela, you are an absolute star and I have recommended you to all my friends who also have horses and many other pets they may want you to draw in the near future. Kind Regards,

Pencil Sketch Portrait for Caroline from Derry, Londonderry

July 2013 - Derry, Londonderry

I wanted a special birthday present for my husband and asked Angela to do the very difficult task of drawing a motorbike and 'hero biker'. Not only did she spend a lot of time sourcing photographs for me to find the right ones but the attention to detail was second to none. I am truly delighted with the end result, as was my husband, and the first-rate, professional service from Angela was exceptional. It was a pleasure doing business with her and I will definitely use her very special talents again and I will most certainly recommend her to friends and family.

Thank you again Angela.

I just wanted to let you know that when Kellie opened your pencil sketch in May she was absolutely delighted with the gift and it brought a tear to her eye! We are both so impressed with how well you have captured the moment and the eye for detail you have is something to be proud of. The portrait now sits on the wall in our living room and always gets a great reaction whenever anyone sees it.

I would just like to say a big Thank You to Angela on her fantastic work. I was looking for a special 50th birthday gift and came up with the idea of a pencil sketch. Angela's service from start to finish was excellent and I could not believe the final finished piece of her art work.

Pencil Sketch Portrait for Anne from Rotherham, England

April 2013 - Rotherham, England

I was extremely happy with your work, especially the way you kept me informed every step of the way. You gave me something that I never managed to achieve... All my family in one place and I especially loved the personal touch of Alan's 'Skellyman' (something he was never seen without).

Many thanks,

This is the 2nd portrait that Angela has sketched for me. Her ability to capture expressions is amazing & her portraits are fantastic and finished to high quality.

Pencil Sketch Portrait for Samantha from Selby, England

I was really pleased with the sketch Angela drew for me. She was able to do it very quickly given that we only gave her 2 weeks notice. Furthermore, she keeps you updated throughout that time, letting you know how she's getting on and sending you a sample sketch before posting it. Very professional and good quality service!

Thank you,


Pencil Sketch Portrait for Danielle from Tipperary, Ireland

February 2013 - Tipperary, Ireland

A truly exceptional service. I couldn’t be happier with the correspondence and end product. I was looking for something different for my Sister’s birthday when I came across Pencil Sketch Portraits. I requested a portrait of old Hollywood movie stars Vivien Leigh and Robert Taylor from the movie Waterloo Bridge (a favourite of my sister's), and to say 'masterpiece' is no exaggeration. It’s beyond perfect. The detail is absolutely amazing and I’m just in awe of the service provided by the site (and Angela!). Will definitely be recommending it to all those looking for something new / different when gift giving. Amazing!

Thank you,

Pencil Sketch Portrait for Shyam from Cardiff, England

December 2012 - Cardiff, England

I chose Angela's pencil sketch portraits as a gift to my wife for our first anniversary after it came highly recommended by a close friend. When I contacted Angela - there was only a week left before the anniversary day. She understood the urgency of my request and managed to fit our portrait in as early as possible. Throughout the transaction I found Angela to be a very friendly and flexible person - a pleasure to deal with really.

Suffice to say my wife was delighted with the outcome. We will treasure the portrait for a long time to come!

All the best,

Pencil Sketch Portrait for Rob from Barnard Castle, England

November 2012 - Barnard Castle, England

I decided to get my girlfriend a pencil portrait done of herself and our son Aidan, there was a particular picture of Aidan and my partner when he was a baby that I wanted to have sketched.

The process was extremely simple, I just sent an email to pencilsketchportraits with the photo attached and within the hour Angela got back in touch, she explained how it all worked and gave me a an approx. lead time of 4 weeks.

After just 1 week Angela got back in touch to say she was finished and attached a file with the portrait in, I was over the moon with the result, she had captured every bit of detail.

The portrait was sent out and I received it recorded delivery within the week, all packaged safely.

I am extremely pleased with the outcome and would recommend pencilsketchportraits to anyone wanting a extremely detailed and accurate portrait, 5 stars. Regards,

Pencil Sketch Portrait for Sarah from Washington, England

October 2012 - Washington, England

You get a great service, the response to your emails is better than most large customer service teams. I really like that you are sent a sample so amendments can be made if required, however I would suspect that most people will not require any amendments as the drawings look great on the sample. When you receive the drawing your expectations are blown away yet again because it looks even better. Very friendly and understanding. I was impressed at the speed of the service and the quality of the drawing itself, I will be getting more drawings as they are better than the pictures.

The photo I had done was from my wedding and it was my husband's favourite, I gave it to him for our first anniversary and he loves it, it has already been put in a frame and hung up.

Great value, service and delivery - lovely gifts. Thank you,

Thank you! Such an amazing wedding present for my sister and new husband. Angela was brilliant the whole time, as I kept changing my mind throughout the process. The end result is beautiful. I was so pleased when it arrived and even more so when I gave it to my sister. They love it and it now hangs in pride of place in their dining room for everyone to admire.

A brilliant unique wedding present.

Thank you so much!

Pencil Sketch Portrait for Alison from Leighton Buzzard, England

June 2012 - Leighton Buzzard, England

Angela has just completed a portrait of my horse Lily. I am thrilled with the result. Angela has totally captured Lily's character in the portrait and on viewing it, I felt a mixture of joy and sadness. I have recently had to sell the horse due to ill health, however, the portrait will take pride of place over my fireplace and will be a constant reminder of the 2 happy years which I had with Lily.

I have seen many examples of Angela's work and I commend her unique ability to capture the highly varied, individual's characteristics in each of her portraits. I am desperately trying to get a good photograph of my dog so that his portrait will be the next one to adorn my walls!

May 2012 - Fleet, England

Just a quick message as my mum asked me to email you to say she was overwhelmed by the Misty Cat picture and the detail you captured was amazing.

Pencil Sketch Portrait for Lisa from Helensburgh, Scotland

November 2011 - Helensburgh, Scotland

Sadly my 22 year old Brother passed away this time last year. Having recently looked through some family photos the last picture taken of myself, brother and parents was over 10 years ago. I e-mailed Angela with 3 separate photographs asking her if she could do anything with them thinking maybe I was asking too much however Angela had managed to draw a portrait that no words could describe. The portrait was an accurate resemblance and it was clear that Angela had put all her heart and soul into the portrait. Communication was excellent, the portrait was reasonably priced and delivery was prompt. I would highly recommend her work to anyone and I will most definitely be using her again in the very near future.
