The Online Gallery at Art Portraits
Our location near the Peak District National Park in Derbyshire is slightly inaccessible for some.
Gill lives in a village on the outskirts of Derbyshire's Peak District. Graham and his family have been on the move a lot recently, between Dronfield, near the Peak District, and Kent - and he's often in Latvia (and other countries) working on voluntary projects with children through CrossBow Ministries. He donates the entire profits his artist's greetings cards to support the work of CrossBow Ministries. Gill donates all the profits from sales of her artist's greetings cards to support her work on web design projects for various non-profit groups.
The Art Portraits online art gallery is an opportunity for you to view art works of Gill Blower and Graham Singleton Reed, buy special cards or artworks as gifts from our online art shop or discover more about the artists. The selection displayed here includes quality watercolour paintings, botanical illustrations, portraits, drawings and sketches - all of them available as quality greetings cards, which we can personalise if you choose. Some original works and a selection of prints are available for sale too.
Art Portraits Commissions
