Treat yourself to a beautiful personalised pen and watercolour house portrait, custom painted from your photo here in the UK. Light and airy, they make a great heartfelt gift for a friend or something special for yourself. I love creating lasting memories with this sketching style of house portrait, it's so refreshing and spontaneous, I never know what the finished painting will be like and that is half the fun.
I work from my studio in Surrey, UK creating your unique custom keepsake. Any building is suitable, whether it is your home, favourite pub, wedding venue, holiday home or retail shop. A house painting in this sketching style is the perfect choice for a unusual and original gift idea.
Below are some examples of my past commissions. If you are after a more contemporary style then check out my Monochrome House Portraits.
I would love to receive a photo of your favourite building and any ideas you may have. I look forward to working with you to create that lasting memory and unique piece of original artwork for your home.

THANKS FOR LOOKING!
Im incredible happy I found Jan to do my house portrait! It is exactly as I remember the house and the colours too! Highly recommend her for portraits of this kind!
I asked Jan to paint a watercolour of our cottage as a surprise gift for my husband. I had left it a bit late in the day to organise this but Jan was fantastic. From her first swift response to my enquiry to the amazing finished painting, Jan kept in touch with me all the way. From a motley collection of photos of the cottage she produced the most beautiful, finely detailed painting. All this at a truly reasonable price too I cannot thank her enough and would recommend her to anyone. Thank you Jan!
Jan was recommended to me by my mother who had used her before. Very pleased with the picture. Jan was very accommodating. Arrived within our timescale, and she kept me updated regularly on progress etc. Would definitely recommend her!
We wanted to find an artist to paint a picture of my brothers house which he built himself. This was a 70th birthday present. We researched on the internet and found Jan Adams and decided to give her a try. Well we can say that this was simply a great decision. Throughout the process Jan gave excellent feedback and suggestions - we gave her photographs and this developed via pencil drawing to a simply wonderful painting. Her approach and feedback was first class and we cannot thank her enough for the finished painting. She is certainly a very talented artist and delivers a quality product in a short lead time with a very acceptable cost. Well done Jan
From start to finish Jan was wonderful to work with, she was always prompt in responding to my emails and sent updates throughout the whole process. The painting arrived well packaged and far exceeded my expectations, the detail is fantastic it's just wonderful and I cannot wait to see my mums response when she receives this at Christmas, I know it will be treasured. I would 100% recommend Jan - Thank you!
