Based in Sydney, Brooke from Blue Ginger Design is a hand lettering and watercolour artist. Her adorable house portraits are sure to bring a smile to your face — especially those where she’s squeezed in a pet portrait too!
Prefer the clean and minimal aesthetic? Then perhaps a house portrait by Aleisha, Graphic Designer at PaperDaisy Bespoke, will be more for you. Her digital prints are beautifully designed and she has an impressive 700+ 5 star reviews on her Etsy store.
A quirky artist who takes a more playful and relaxed approach to house portraits is Georgia of Georgia Draws a House. Her house portraits have gained so much popularity that she’s been commissioned to create murals for Sydney Living Museums where she created ginormous versions of her house portraits to display in their ‘Make your Mark’ exhibition.
Another talented illustrator and watercolour artist is Jen Russell Smith — and with over 350 5 star reviews, you don’t have to take our word for it! Her works are a tad more pricey than others in this list, but the added time she takes to layer in so much detail makes it worthwhile.
If you love editorial illustrations as much as us, you’ll be drawn to the works of Custom Your Moment. Digitally drawn and hand painted with watercolour, Daisy produces all kinds of portraits including wedding portraits, pups and more!
We hope you found an artist in this round up to do a portrait of your home or create the perfect customised gift. If you know of any other house portrait artists that should make the list, leave us a comment below!
