Custom art and illustration by Clare Holder.






I create: Custom portraits, Watercolour paintings, Digital Illustration, Textile Design.


Art is my favourite present to give! My realistic graphite portraits are lovely gifts for friends and family when you just don’t know what to get them. I also do watercolour illustration and digital illustration for varying projects, such as invitations, textile design and children’s books.

I’ve always been creative, but about 2 years ago I was drawing some fan art of a band I liked and everyone went a bit crazy for the drawing. Made me realise hey, I can actually draw! Since then I’ve been doing mostly commissioned graphite portraits for family, friends, and friends of friends, who are passing the word around.


I’ve never done any formal training, so I’m still learning, playing around with watercolours, coloured pencil and digital art as well. Practice makes perfect, as they say!
