The Artist

Hello. My name is Simon Birtall. I'm an artist based on the Wirral peninsula in the north west England. I specialise in the production of custom artwork based on photos of family, friends or pets.

Originally trained in illustration at Falmouth School of Art, I've been a practicing professional artist for over 20 years with a wealth of experience to show for it.

Having previously produced one-off portraits on a semi-regular basis, in 2002 I established a definitive portraits from photographs service, taking commissions for portrait paintings and drawings of family, friends or pets from photographs.

I paint in an Impressionist influenced technique in oils or acrylics on canvas (or other surfaces if required) and make black and white portraits in pencil on paper. I don't have a studio/gallery to visit but I'm happy to answer any questions via E-mail or telephone.

Examples of my portrait art can be seen in the gallery section of this website or on my other site, Birtall.co.uk, which also includes other work such as landscape and still life paintings. My blog – Drawing upon Life – features drawings and paintings from life.

Thanks for visiting the web site,
Simon Birtall
