Artist Kate Marr
It is always a wonderful experience commissioning a work of art. Please contact me and let me know your commission idea and I will give you a quote. It is helpful to know the level of detail there will be, material, size preference, deadline and budget.
I use top quality materials which include pencil, charcoal, conte for drawings and gouache or oils for painting.
Prices vary according to size and detail.
Your portrait can be framed using standard or bespoke frames.
Portraits can be posted to you, or you can collect them from Bournemouth.
My work is a reflection of life capturing the wonder of the world through portraiture and figures in landscapes. I enjoy the opportunity to bring out the character, essence, and soulfulness of each individual and create beautiful, colourful works of art.

“I asked Kate to do a portrait of my girlfriends cat for Christmas and the final drawling was absolutely superb. The drawing was done in the exact style I requested and I was kept fully updated on the progress of it. I would absolutely recommend Kate! ”

“My Gran loved the portrait, thank you so much. We would rate you and your service 5 stars. You really helped us out at such a busy time of year. The portrait was lovely and was such a great likeness. It was sent and received very quickly from me approving the final picture sent. It was well packaged to keep it safe. You kept constant contact throughout so we were kept up to date. Thank you so much for such an amazing service.”
“Kate provided a professional, friendly and efficient service from start to finish. Guiding us through the process and helping us to make a decision for which medium and size painting to choose. Kate did a lovely photo shoot with our children and then we chose a photo for her to work from to create our beautiful portrait. We now have a heart warming, delightful painting that captures our precious children so well and we can treasure this piece of art forever. Thank you!”
