I’m Kait D’Arcy, an Australian Artist and Designer currently living abroad in Canada with my husband Mark and pup Flynn. I'm passionate about drawing and design and I have a hunger to create artwork that is personal and captures the heart.
I'm proud to offer high quality, unique hand drawn commissions. I put a lot of love and careful attention in each drawing, capturing all the things you love.
I hope you enjoy my work as much as I enjoy creating it for you.
::: ABOUT MY PROCESS :::
I fell in love with art from a young age, self taught with a gravitation towards pencils and drawing as my favourite medium and style of art. Five years ago I challenged myself to relearn how to draw but this time on a tablet.
Each drawing and portrait you see is drawn on a Wacom tablet using a digital stylus pencil. This application allows me to add more detail to the drawing and preserve all the soft elements when digitalising and reproducing the drawing.
The result of drawing this way produces a high quality flawless pencil drawing that you can print on a range of mediums and sizes, and you can keep digitally forever.
For more examples and reviews, visit me on my social media platforms where you'll find my previous client's drawings, the photos they were drawn from and what my clients had to say about them!
::: CHRISTMAS UPDATE ! :::
Unfortunately I have filled up on my portrait bookings for Christmas/before I go on Christmas leave. You may however, still purchase a portrait now and you will receive a downloadable file emailed to you with a certificate that can be printed in lieu of the completed portrait, giving you something tangible to gift to your loved ones for Christmas as you let them know that their special, custom-made gift is in progress. If you would like to proceed with this option, simply purchase your portrait now, and I will start work on it in early January 2021.
As a gesture of my gratitude for your patience, understanding and support during this busy time of year, I have decided to discount all my portraits by 10% for purchases made between now and December 31st, 2020. I would love to have the opportunity to draw a portrait for you, so I hope that this offer helps to minimize any disappointment and offers you a way to gift this special piece at a later date and at a reduced price.
I hope you have a wonderful Christmas and/or festive season! Thank you again for your interest in my work and I hope I can create a special piece for you in the future.
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me.
Stay safe and well, and Merry Christmas!
::: COVID-19 UPDATE :::
With a higher than normal delay in shipping and general stresses on systems, I will be offering digital delivery ONLY of your custom portraits so that your package doesn't take the place of someone's essential needs. I will be there to help you with printing advice, instructions and anything you need to make sure your portrait turns out perfectly from start to finish.
During this stressful and challenging time I hope that my artwork can bring you a little joy as I work with you to capture a reflection of your memories and loved ones.
From my family to yours, we hope you are all healthy and safe!
