mark a special occasion with a truly unique gift

In a world of mass production & large high-street chains, I’m a big believer in giving thoughtful gifts that show, not only that a great deal of thought, time and consideration has gone into what you’re giving, but also how much you love and care for who you’re giving that gift too.


That’s why I love creating different illustrations and pieces of art for weddings, christenings, anniversaries & birthdays, that are truly unique and either have great meaning or mark a big event in the recipients life.


In the past I’ve illustrated wedding venues, engagement spots, memorable family holiday destinations, woodland animals for children's nurseries & collaged love birds using maps. My pieces can also be personalised with names, dates and locations to commemorate that special day.


This gallery features some of the illustrated gift commissions I've created, which vary from anything from wedding venues to holiday homes, illustrations for babies nurseries to pet portraits.

Each is hand-drawn using fine liners and finished with watercolours if colour is used.

If you want to find out more about the different processes and stages I work through to create my gift commissions make sure you check out my blog page, where you'll find a few posts on some of my favourite illustrations, sharing with you how the images are brought to life and talking you through my image-making process.


"I commissioned Chris to do a sketch of the venue my best friend was getting married in. He worked well with me, taking in what I wanted and giving some further creative ideas.


The result was spectacular and my friend was thrilled to bits. The sketch itself was beautiful, detailed and intricate. He also incorporated the couples names and the date of the wedding giving a wonderful, personalised touch.


I could not recommend him highly enough"
