Jennifer Beresford Portrait Art


Hi there! I'm a Durban-based artist, specialising in pencil and pastel portraits of both humans and pets. ​​​No one commissions a portrait of someone they don’t care about deeply, so I take this responsibility very seriously; striving to capture the expression, personality and unique beauty of each face, as well as an accurate likeness.


· I work from good quality photos which can be Whatsapped (0766174808) or emailed to me (

· The clearer and more close-up and high resolution the photo, the better the portrait will be. If you’re not sure if a pic is clear enough, send it to me and I’ll let you know. If possible, please send me several photos so I can choose the best, in consultation with you.

· I usually have a waiting list, which you'll be added to once we've decided on a photo, and subject to a 10% deposit. Please let me know if you have a deadline and I will do my best to accommodate you.

· Once finished, I'll send you a photo of the portrait so you can advise me of any changes or corrections.

· Payment is due upon your approval of the portrait, and then the original is released to you.

· I reserve the right to display the finished portrait on my Facebook page, although the source photo will not be displayed without your express permission. No names or identifying information will ever be posted.
