Custom House Portraits.

Watercolour paintings by Liv.


Hello! I'm Liv.

I'm an architectural illustrator, painter and printmaker born in West Yorkshire and settled in Norfolk. I paint a lot of bricks!

Based in the UK but shipping worldwide, I have sent paintings everywhere from down the road here in Norwich, to the other side of the planet in Australia. Every place is different and every home is different, in their physical styles and the memories they hold. A house portrait captures the warmth and personality of what it means to be a home, making it one of the most special and one-of-a-kind gifts you could give. 

Thinking of commissioning a house portrait of your own? Get it touch! I’m happy to answer any questions, queries and concerns and give you my recommendations on any ideas you have. 

Thanks so much!

A5 edit.jpg

148 x 210mm
5.8 x 8.3 inch

A sweet little package of home. With a smaller size, the level of detail isn’t as high. This is a great option if you're limited for space, or you’d prefer something more stylised.

A4 edit.jpg

210 x 297mm
8.3 x 11.7 inch

My personal recommendation! A4 is the perfect size for most house portraits, allowing for a great level of detail and creating a statement piece in your home.

A3 edit.jpg

297 x 420mm
11.7 x 16.5 inch

A real statement piece. A3 is the largest format that I currently offer. I find this size works best for large houses, wedding venues, and generally more detailed pieces.

First, the design goes through an initial concept phase, ensuring all details and proportions are correct.



The piece then begins with ink, adding further details to create the home you know and love.



watercolour brings the painting to life with depth, colour, shading and highlights, ready to be handed over to you.

"Olivia did a fantastic job creating a portrait of my childhood home! She was very responsive and checked in at different points to make sure that it came out exactly how I wanted it to look. I'm so happy with how it turned out and my mom loved the gift!"


"Olivia painted such a beautiful photo of our home, we will cherish it forever as it was our first home, we had our son here and as we move on to our next adventure it’s the perfect memory to look back on. Thank you liv!"
