Becky Blake


I am an experienced full-time artist and illustrator with a fascination of portraiture, both man and beast.

I love the challenge of creating the texture of rich skin tones, soft fur or the beautiful line of a feather but the best part is being able to bring out the true spirit of the sitter through their eyes. I believe that all people and animals are individual characters and I’m passionate about trying to express this through art.

I work with all kinds of media, on all surfaces, experimenting with anything that motivates me. If you have any suggestions that seem a bit different, let me know!

I have exhibited at the Mall Galleries, London and apart from private commissions,
my recent clients include,  NHS, QED, Dorset Wildlife Trust and RSPB. I also illustrate regularly for Dorset Life Magazine.
I live with my wonderful family in Weymouth, Dorset and share my somewhat overcrowded home with dogs, chickens, hedgehogs and the occasional visiting baby seagull.
If you would like to commission a portrait, order a limited edition print, see more examples or simply need some advice, please feel free to contact me. I really do look forward to hearing from you. becky@beckyblake.co.uk
