Last year I drew a quick sketch of my daughter and posted it on Facebook. I was overwhelmed by the response I received from friends and family and people began asking if I could sketch their children and pets for them.

I have always loved art and it has long been a dream of mine to become a full-time artist, but having a family and working full-time left little time to pursue my passion. The comments I received on Facebook inspired me to set up Debbie’s Sketchbook and do something I love.

I still work part-time, but spend any free time I have drawing and painting. I have produced many portraits of pets and children, which have made lovely gifts for occasions such as Christenings, Father’s Day, birthdays and more. You can see a selection of my artwork in the gallery on this page.

If you would like a personal bespoke painting, or would like to have a chat about how I can help you, then please contact me. You can also view a gallery of the art I have for sale on this site.
