About us

Welcome to our website. I’m Mark Harvey and I was born in Hampshire. I studied illustration at Southampton Institute of Higher Education (now Southampton University) and gained a BTEC National Diploma and Higher Diploma in technical illustration.

I’ve worked as an illustrator and more latterly graphic artist for over 30 years. My working career started as a contractor to the Ministry of Defence working on a variety of teaching media before illustrating for British Aerospace, Siemens Plessey Systems, TUV product assessment and more latterly the UK Health Service.

Being an illustrator as opposed to an artist means I enjoy the ability to work in many different mediums and to a range of differing styles.

I work work pencil, watercolour pencil and coloured pencil producing portraits of big cats, people and my own line of cartoon based drawing centering around the antics or a rogue bunch of Cornish seagulls (Pirates of Polruan).

Hi, I’m Debra Parkes and sister to Mark. I was born in Hampshire and have completed a number of commissions using pastel and pencil. Following a retail career I returned to art some years ago and enjoy working from my home in Dorset which I share with my hubby and Chocolate Labrador.

It’s great being able to create truly memorable portraits and I hope you enjoy looking through the examples we have provided here.

I try to work closely to my customers requirements and always aim to provide complete satisfaction.
