    Perfect For Every Special Occasion

    If you are looking for that extra "something" to help your special event become even more memorable, then Kirstybowks Bespoke Live Drawing is definitely worth considering.
    Kirsty came to a recent 80th birthday party, which took place in our garden on a gloriously warm July evening. She provided some absolutely beautiful little illustrations of our guests and sat in the garden, enabling people to come and watch her as she completed each drawing. Everyone was delighted at the opportunity of receiving a small momento of the occasion and all commented on how unusual it was to have this kind of activity provided, rather than a photographer.
    Kirsty was professional, considerate and helpful and took time to discuss exactly what we wanted from our event. Highly recommended!
