House Portraits

A couple of years ago I had a pop up shop / studio / gallery in Primrose Hill for five months over the long hot summer of 2018. Whilst there I created a series of prints of the surrounding area. One day a lady came in and said she loved my work, one print in particular had caught her eye as it featured the road where she lived but I had missed out her house.

So a new project was born - creating bespoke prints of people's homes. I have now completed many of these portraits, mostly in and around London. I work from a site visit (optional) and photos and so can complete commissions from anywhere in the world.

To commission me please email me and we can discuss, I can work from photos and/or a visit. Alternatively you can purchase a commission as a gift with one of my gift cards.

The portraits are flexible in size, shape, approach - I love a challenge,
but to give you an idea basically they are AVAILABLE IN THREE SIZES
 
Regent's Park Road Primrose Hill House Portrait by Kate Guy Monotype Print
I've lived in my house in Primrose Hill for nearly 70 years and I love it. Kate has certainly done it justice with her beautiful print.
Caroline, London NW1

 

I do not make an exact representation of the property, I try to capture the feeling of the home. I often include local features, front and back of the property and any particularly personal touches that make it your home.

I absolutely love my print by Kate, it was a gift from my husband and a wonderful surprise. Kate has really caught the essence of our lovely home in her work

I work with different print making techniques. The lino cut 'look' lends itself very well to the design work I do on screen printed textiles but I also like to work with other print making techniques of monoprint and dry point etching.
