Excellence! 🤩

China was very friendly and made me feel at ease whilst she did my portrait so quickly. I loved the feeling I got as I got to see the quality of the portrait she had done for me, and I loved how it was packaged to me after. Very professional, I would highly recommend her services!

Love my portrait :)

I absolutely love the portrait China made of me! I can't believe she 'got' me in such a short space of time - what a talent, and such a lovely person too.

She's Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrreat!

China was so good to have at our wedding. The speed portraits were a perfect filler whilst we were having our photo's and doing newly wed arrangements! The guest only gave positive feedback and we loved seeing everyones portraits.

Would highly recommend this service at your wedding, or event in general!

Fantastic! Would highly recommend

We had China drawing our guests portraits at our wedding just before Christmas and it was so good. They guests loved it and we loved having our portrait drawn too!

We had around 80 guests and hired China for 4 hours so she got plenty of portraits drawn.

Thank you China!

Highly Recommend For Your Wedding

I had my portrait drawn by China last weekend and it was such a cool addition to the wedding! It gave the guests something to talk about and now I get to go home with a portrait of myself!
I would highly recommend China at any wedding, it makes the day so unique and she was lovely to chat to very welcoming.
