If you're looking for a custom piece of art for your home or to give to someone special, this is just the thing! Most of my commissions have been gifts for significant others, parents or neighbours in the past, but people equally commission me for themselves. Choose any building of meaning - it could be your first home, your wedding venue, your church, a honeymoon location, your garden in spring... really, the sky is the limit. A place that brings you joy that you would love to look at, framed in your home - this is a tangible memory of your favourite place!
I can hand letter a verse, quote or date underneath your painting, please let me know what personalisation you would like. I recommend no more than around 25 characters so that it doesn’t look overcrowded and is easily legible.
Each custom portrait is hand-painted on 300gsm Canson paper in Winsor & Newton watercolour paint and finished with black ink to define edges. You will receive your unique A4 painting unframed, beautifully wrapped in tissue paper ready to give as a gift or as a special treat for yourself.
After purchasing, simply send a high-quality picture in colour of the location you would like painted to email@example.com. If there is small detail in your image, close up pictures would be great to send too! Whether the artwork is landscape or portrait will depend on what best fits the image you send unless you have specified a preference in your email.
Each illustration is hand drawn. Depending on demand, this may take up to 3 weeks to dispatch, but will usually be ready within 5-7 days. If your order is time sensitive, please get in touch before ordering to make sure I can accommodate. I’ll always try to work to deadlines you have but do check beforehand!
These custom illustrations are A4 size, which makes them easy to find a suitable frame for.
What do you draw?
I draw a variety of buildings or scenes - from flats, houses and bungalows, to farms, churches and other wedding venues. Please note your illustration will be in the style you see in the pictures. I sketch in pencil to begin, then paint with watercolour using detail such as brickwork and shadows and finish off with black ink.
I sketch from the perspective in the photograph you provide and include some background such as sea, flowers, pavements, etc. Please let me know if there are details you do not want included in your illustration (such as drain pipes, specific trees, grave stones in a church illustration, etc) Please be as specific as possible with which elements you want excluded. I can also add little things like a wreath on the door, flower pots and leaves on trees!
Unfortunately due to the custom nature of this artwork I will be unable to accept returns and refunds.
If you have any questions please contact me before you order, I’d love to help.
Meet the Maker
Luxury cards, prints and gifts using hand lettering, illustration and watercolour to bring joy, encouragement and hope.
And Hope Designs began in 2020 out of a need to be creative when wedding photography was no longer an option due to a fourth child and a relocation.
Anna began to paint and, in time, created cards and prints that were designed to bring joy and encouragement. A lot of her products are based on things that she loves - gardening, baking, the Bible, motherhood, florals and botanicals.
With a passion for good quality and paper goods, all her cards are printed on premium lightly textured card, and all other products are printed locally with the best materials so that everything she makes exceeds expectations and is a joy to give and a delight to receive.
The name And Hope Designs comes from the verse in Romans 5:5 “ And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out His love into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, whom He has given us.” What assurance!
Anna has spent large chunks of her life in England, France and Scotland. She now lives in Belfast with her husband Iain, and their 4 young children. They’re at an age where they love to be involved so your order may well be lovingly stamped and/or posted by a young postie helper.
