Unique and affordable portraits

Hand-painted acrylic portraits, using classic vintage, retro, or pop art style. Painted on a stretched canvas ready to hang.

Transform your memories into a unique visual experience.

An innovative idea for those hard to buy for'!

You may want a painting using a variety of photos of people brought together to make one group portrait.

I can make those changes that you would have liked in your photograph.

Pull out those old photos that you are concerned about are deteriorating and don't wish to lose. You can have them painted into a beautiful portrait to preserve them. the oldest photograph I have painted to date is 120 yrs.

I can re-create your photograph using a fun theme for your portrait!!
I also paint animals, cars, motorbikes, landscapes, etc.


I am happy to answer any questions you may have"

The portraits have arrived and they are just perfect. I am so impressed with the job you have done and I know my 90 year old dad will cry when he opens them on Christmas day. I cant wait to gift them to him. Thank you for making my dream come true of being able to have a special portrait of our loved ones ???? Have a lovely Christmas with your loved ones and a safe new year. Thank you so much

I sent photo's of my aged Great Grandparents to Brenda and a newspaper article of their wedding which included a description of their outfits, Brenda painted a portrait of them as a younger couple on their wedding day, they were married in 1895, the portrait is amazing,my Family all love the likeness, and it will become a much treasured heirloom

Brenda did an amazing job with the portrait I wanted. Got one done of our pet rabbit for my partner's birthday and she loved it. Brenda was good with communication and is very talented. Would certainly recommend if you want to have a portrait done for yourself or someone else! Thank you!!

A cracker job - thanks Brenda. Jane now looks like someone a lot more real than she did in the little, wee photo that was the original. Doubly lovely:)

Brenda Neal: Thanks Karen... Considering it was from a 170-year-old photograph it had its challenges...But very rewarding.
Brenda has done a magnificent job of a replica portrait for me. A difficult piece but she has provided a fantastic, well detailed painting. I have no hesitation in recommending your services Brenda. Excellent. Thank you so much. A gift for my partner which she will be thrilled to receive.

If you are looking for something unique and awesome, this is it.Brenda is so talented and friendly. I ordered a portrait of my fav picture of my partner and me, for his 30th. My partner loved it, and was really happy with his gift. I thought it looked amazing, like a photo to which you would have added a painting filter, that realistic! I will definitely order another from her in the future.

When you have been married for almost 50 years it gets difficult to find something different for special birthdays. I was so lucky to stumble upon Brenda's website and I knew instantly that I was on to a winner. Brenda is a delight to work with, her talent is superb, her communication outstanding. When her finished article arrived on time it was brilliant. She has my wife copied perfectly. No mistaking who she is. Thank you Brenda, for completing a happy day for us..

Absolutely a breeze to deal with. The portrait is stunning and done very carefully with a lot of detail. Highly recommend this service to all!
skittles93 (158 158 positive feedback)  Wed 12 Mar
Absolutely amazing!! I've always believed that a real artist won't charge the world for her or his art because they love what they do and they love giving their art. Not only was Brenda incredibly affordable but she is one hell of an artist!! When I received my portrait I was stunned, for the price I thought it would be good, but it's stunning!! I'm so stoked that I stumbled across this. Thank you Brenda! I look forward to more of your art. You have given us one memorable gift! :)
