About the Artist and Process

Drawing Process

Through many years of training and practice, I am able to very closely replicate your image and turn a simple photograph into high quality artwork which you and your family will treasure for many years to come. You will receive a skillfully rendered, priceless piece of original art that you can be proud to frame and display. 


Each unique portrait is hand drawn with care on professional quality acid-free toned archival paper using the finest graphite and white conte. 


I am proud of my work and I will strive to make your portrait more beautiful and accurate than you could have hoped!

Caleigh Bird Bio

I am originally from the big city of Toronto, Ontario but was brought up in beautifully historic Charleston, SC.


I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Studio Art with an Art History Minor from the College Of Charleston and received my Master’s Degree in Studio Art at the University of South Carolina. I have been fortunate enough to spend time studying painting and drawing technique, as well as studying the Old Masters' original works, at the Istituto Michelangelo in Florence, Italy and at Studio Escalier in Argenton Chateau, France.


In 2015 I relocated to O'ahu, Hawai'i and am currently finding new inspiration hiking the lush landscapes, snorkeling with rainbow-scaled fish, and soaking up the sunny island way of life.
