I offer custom portraits digitally illustrated by Irene Ruby. 


A custom illustrated portrait is such a great way to show your personality on your blog, business card, about page, or social media profile (especially if you are a little camera-shy!). Your portrait will be a stylised, and playful version of you, rather than an exact photographic representation. An illustration is quirky and fun reflection of you and your brand.


In this style portrait I want to know a bit more about you. I can draw you performing an activity or holding your favorite book. Maybe your pet will make an appearance? Do you want a floral background or perhaps you would like to be displayed in front of your ultimate holiday destination. If you want to be illustrated as a fantasy character or wearing your favorite jumper, please let me know and I will see what I can do. 


This is a digital illustration and you will receive 1 x hi-resolution 300 DPI digital file in PNG and a smaller file in JPG for your own personal use.


The turnaround time for a custom digital portrait, is 4 weeks. If you need it faster, please email me and I will see if I have the time to commit to a different timeframe. 


Once you have made your purchase, Irene will contact you with all of the information you need to gather your pictures to start the process rolling.


If you are looking for a print of your illustration please let me know as I can offer prints on high quality 316 GSM fine art Archival paper in A5, A4 or even A3. The extra costs for the print depends on the size and shipping to your location.

what our creatives say:

"The class was hugely enjoyable and informative. The teacher was very clear and helpful. I learnt much more than I had anticipated and came away with two paintings which I was pleasantly surprised at how they looked. The venue is above a pub and the room had a peaceful and cosy feel. Very suited to learning. I will definitely be going again."

"This was a fun and inspiring class - all materials were provided, along with plenty of inspiration, and no experience is necessary. I hadn't painted since school, but before I knew it Irene had me blending colours and creating a work I could be proud of.
