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. For as long as I can remember I have always been a visual artist, and was fortunate enough to have parents who encouraged my artistic tendencies and provided endless opportunities for me to strengthen and refine my craft. 


I received my Bachelors Degree in Studio Art from the College Of Charleston then later received my Masters Degree in Studio Art at USC in Columbia, SC, all the while taking an abundant amount of art history classes as well. I also spent time studying painting at the Istituto Michelangelo in Florence, Italy as well as Studio Escalier in Argenton-Chateau, France, and have peppered my life in between with both international and cross-country travels.


In 2015 I relocated to O'ahu, Hawai'i and am currently finding new inspiration in the lush landscapes and vivid palette of the tropics, as well as in the culturally diverse population. When not behind my easel, you can find me dancing with my hula hoop, hiking ancient volcanic mountains, snorkeling with rainbow-scaled fish, and scooping out the last little bit of a fresh coconut.
