Latest Etsy commission, this time for Abby in Cambridge!

The idea was to capture a happy time for this gorgeous family, including nods to some more or less obvious likes and hobbies – from gardening to mermaids, history books and Pinot Grigio, there is definitely a lot to look for in here.

It was an absolute joy to work with Abby to come up with the concept, here deciding to include the new family chair to add a homely feeling, as well as the bunting. Abby and family all contributed by choosing clothes and accessories and ‘totem’ item for inclusion in the bunting.

I always feel incredibly fortunate to be given an insight in the lives of wonderful people…

You can order your own bespoke portrait from my Etsy shop Karuski’s little shop of colours – I can turn something around within a couple of weeks although it’s best to contact me early for Christmas presents as it tends to get pretty busy!!

Karuski is the nom de pencil for me, Katherine Mengardon - I am a fan of all things 1960s, CAKES, obscure indie pop bands, children illustrations, bad puns and cats. Any spare time goes towards baking mad cakes, drawing families and catified musicians. Find me here too:
