‘Listening, illustrating and celebrating your life stories’

Illustrating your Story:

We all have our stories and want to be heard. Important moments in our lives we wish to celebrate and share with others. Often these stories are etched in the mind, but seldom in a photo.

I would love to work with you to illustrate your unique and special life stories.

The illustration service is flexible and can take place online or in person.

I offer two styles, acrylic paint on textured paper using a dry brush technique and pen and ink on watercolour paper.

See below for examples of my work and some testimonials.

Please contact me to discuss commissioning an illustration. info@carolinehyland.com
