Portraits & Artworks
Welcome to Lives in Graphite
I am Mara Shaw, a graphite artist in the North West of England, creating unique, photorealistic pencil portraits and sketches that will bring your favourite photographs to life. With over 12 year’s expertise as a graphite artist, I aim to produce charming and timeless portraits of people, pets, homes and occasions, hand-drawn with intimate detail to capture true likeness and character.
Anything can be given a new life in graphite, which is why I offer a range of drawing services that turn the things you hold most dear into elegant artworks you can treasure forever.
